I went there twice, first I took llama steak with some wine sauce and it was amazingly good. Second time I took the quinoa burger and then I was really disappointed. We could help ourselves with an assortment of salads which I much appreciated. The...More

Went there because an other restaurant was closing. Ordered a chicken soup and a chicken sandwich. Soup was great and the sandwich kinda small but nicely served. Two softdrinks added to a proce of 80b. The women at the bar and the waitress gave me...More

We stopped here for lunch shortly after arriving to Potosì: while the restaurant itself was not impressive, I do think it is above average by the standards of this city. We had a very good soup of the day, followed by a pair of chicken...More
