Ambience: interiors of an old house with quirky posters all around Food: Pique Macho is a dish that is fundamentally the Bolivian version of French fries. Here it is served with sausages, beef chunks and hot chillies, and really tastes great.

Stopped into La Cueva for lunch while strolling through Calle Murillo. The food was excellent and the margaritas are delicious! Would recommend some outdoor seating, however, the indoor atmosphere was pleasant and service was great.

Hello! I've been there twice and had nachos, burrito and wrap. None of the dishes came with peanuts. Anyway, I think it's important to ask! And if the dish comes with peanuts I'm almost sure they can prepare without it! 😉

From the moment you walk in you are drawn to the strange layout of the place. Really cool paintings and random stuff all around. Great value for money. The mixed platter for 2 is 90 BS. For a mix of everything thats great on the menu. They do take-aways and deliverys and for the likes of me even wrap up what I couldn't finish! The staff is really nice.
