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.

For 25 bolivianos we got a 3 courses meal plus a juice. Everything was tasty and products were obviously high quality. A great healthy option at the heart of Sucre!
