Cochabamba is infamous for the terrible customer service you receive at restaurants and so we were notably amazed to be treated well and even helped out with our order. We started off with some grilled entrees which were a bit over cooked (though I was told that it is the norm here so we asked the main dish to be... More

Good service and quite OK food, but a disappointment i relation to the top-rank. We ordered well-done beefs, but was served medium. The sallad buffé was good, but not excellent. Outside the restaurant was a gigant Coca-cola Christmas-tree, it did not conduce to jack up the atmosphere.

A favourite place for this meatlover over the last decade. This is the place in Cocha for humonguous steaks, which are curves and cooked to perfection. The "lomito" and "bife de lomo" are tenderloins and preferred by most, with the "smaller" one large enough for any single person.

It's really the only place I eat at when in Cochabamba. Not because there aren't any other good restaurants. There are. It's because this one is consistently good. The salad bar is always awesome and the only place I would dare eat a salad. I don't eat red meat so I have to order the chicken which is awesome or... More

Meat restaurant, with charcoal grill in the center. Good salad buffet. I had one of the best pieces of meat I have ever tasted.

I have eaten here for over 15 years and still enjoy going there. The steaks are cooked on the grill and they are always good. The service is great and the best waiter is Milton. Ask for him and tell him John sent you.

Really good churrasqueria! Very good value, huge portions, we probably could have ordered one steak between us and been just as satisfied but we were feeling extravagant. The wine is good value, and the sides are really good. Very good experience

Good Picana and surubi. Steak was very tasty although a little tough. Surybi was excellent if you enjoy fish. Perfect for tourists if you don't mind spending a little more than in a non tourist restraunt. 2 people, drinks and food around 20 US
