Amazing show. Takes you on a tour through the different regions of Bolivia, giving you a sample of traditional dances and music. Very affordable. The food is just ok. Don't expect much. Just go for the show and you will enjoy it.

The show is so amazing you almost don't have time to eat. A must-see if you haven't experienced The variety in Bolivian culture and dances yet. Although I kept thinking about what a paceno told me: "In Bolivia we're not good with tourism". We were given a meny without being told that the first page is the menu included. We... More

Tourist trap. Unexciting dancing, the worst food (I literally couldn't cut my chicken) and although we bought their most expensive bottle of wine it was terrible. You must miss this: a total waste of time!

Our guide recommended this place. Amazing dancers, costumes and music. Highly recommend. We did not have dinner, but only went for drinks and had a light snack which we selected from the menu.

The Show is really amazing! The dancers are very energetic, and always smiling...you can see their passion. Very very good show! The service is really poor, the are not many waiters, so the service is quite slow. The food could be better! I ordered the vegetarian opcion (fettucine with vegetables) and the plate only had like 5 finely sliced carrots,... More

This show was the highlight of Sucre’s night life. Is a must if you are in the area. We paid for dinner plus the 2 hour show something around $22. The food quality was very good and the dancer did a great job. I wish they have had a DVD to purchase after the show.

Good show, upbeat and entertaining. Costumes are bright and colourful We decided to have the food too, the service was very poor and the food came out cold. Our drinks were sitting on the bar for over 10 minutes and we finally asked the waiters about our drinks and they brought them over.

My husband and I attended this dinner and show after I read about it on Trip Advisor and the waiter at the Metro Cafe gave us a flyer and said he could get us in cheaper because he also worked there. He booked us a table at the back that was a bit higher so we didn’t have any others... More

The evening starts with a choice of 3 meals. The main event is 2 hours of a history of Bolivia in dance. The costumes are colorful and varied. Eleven dances are presented from all parts of Bolivia. The music, the dancers, the costumes and the food should not be missed. Make reservations and remember there is not a performance on... More
