I was the only person here when I arrived but that wasn't a problem. Value for money is excellent as only 40bs for an almuerzo which includes a crepe - this was very cheesy and very filling, quinoa soup - really delicious and huge, could...More

I usually try to find one redeeming value in a restaurant. The lentil burger was tasty, though much smaller than the giant hamburgers at other tables. Otherwise, the only one I found here was that they did not make us pay for the food. Overall,...More

We ended up here on a sunday, almost everywhere else was closed. We had a vegetable lasagna and a vegetable pie. The service was not very good, the food was ok, just overpriced. The lasagna was partially very salty. Wouldn't necessarily recommend, just if you...More

Good value, tasty set lunch and nice atmosphere. Got food poisoning a few hours later - I think my vegetarian lasagne was not reheated very well. Unfortunate as otherwise a nice place with good options.

Fresh and delicious vegetables, which is hard to find in Bolivia. Also good cake and coffee. Nice location with beautiful view. Good price-performance ratio.

It seemed like a neat place when I walked in, but the staff didn't even acknowledge me and I had to go and ask them for a cappuccino. When it finally arrived, it was some of the worst coffee I have had in South America....More

Potosi is not an expensive city so this cafe certainly uses the fact that they also own a Hostel and a tour operator to advertise for them. The food is OK, but a bit overpriced. It is an OK place to taste lama meat
