This restaurant is located on top of President Hotel and serves a variety of Bolivian dishes. As a guest of the hotel, I dined there several times and one Friday night they offered, in addition, a nice buffet of pasta which was also enjoyable. The views of La Paz from this top floor are always impressive, day and night

We were a large group (10 people), including two small children. The restaurant occupies the top floor of one of the tallest buildings in La Paz (Hotel Presidente) and the night view was beautiful. The restaurant was near empty, the menu was big and the food was delicious, the waiters were gracious, but the service was very slow. The price... More

Stunning views over the city but overpriced, poor quality meals. I was taken there by 5 friends for my birthday while travelling. Three of us ordered the lamb in special sauce, a house specialty. Mine came out blue, not medium rare as ordered. I asked to have it cooked some more, which wasn't a problem. However it came back and... More

This restaurant is supposed to have excellent views over La Paz as it is located on the 15th floor of a hotel. From the moment you enter this place you get such a cold feeling. The tablecloths are as if they came out from the fifties, it could well be the local take away. Such a large room with only... More

We ate dinner here and were not disappointed. The views are spectacular of the city and we watched the sun set on the mountains. The food was also very good and I would recommend this as a good place to eat while in La Paz

We as a group of 10 were well taken care of. The food was enjoyed by all. The beer was cold, the wine was good. I truly enjoyed the steak. The salad bar was well stocked if a little strange, but that is a personal observation, not a complaint. I would recommend Bella Vista for someone looking for a more... More

The view was nice and the food okay. The price was also okay. My bloody mary wasn't good and it took a looooong while to get my food. The staff was not nice.

Was recommended by the locals in La Paz because of the view and the trout. Went there for lunch and both were good! But the view is better 😉 Lunch was served with a buffet of appetizers and later a choice of desserts from a cart. So it's Value for money considering all that.

On the 16th floor of the Presidente Hotel. I came here with my tour group for an end of trip meal. There were 12 of us and we were looked after very well. It was the perfect way to end a great trip.
