This place should be number 1 on TripAdvisor. Have been here multiple times on our trip to Sucre. The food was amazing, good food in bolivia is so hard to come by...but so happy to come across this restaurant!

El Germen is not the kind of 5-star fancy place you would go to for a special night on the town, but it is cozy with ambience and good food. I had the "gulasch spaetzle" which was excellent. Breakfast menu looked good too.
