Perfect for a light lunch or snack. We tried a meat and chicken saltenas and they were both incredible, particularly the meat one. Very sad that we didn't have the time to return! Useful to note that it closes at 1, so get there early....More

The menu is simple: chicken saltena, beef saltena, or chicken empanada to eat (each selling for about $1); soda, water or lemonade to drink. There's a counter as you walk in, and you order and pay there. You then take your receipt and sit at...More

Food here is amazing! Order at the front, then either sit at a table or go to the back counter for take away. Simple food, done so well! Sweet outside, savory inside. so so tasty!

Amazing Bolivian salteñas in a cute courtyard. Be aware that it closes at 12:30! And there may be long queues, but worth the wait.

Very cool historic building and patio. Full of locals and great for people watching, which is how we learned most Bolivians eat their saltena with a spoon! Delicious food at 8 bolivianos each. Be patient (like the locals are) and get there early. Kid friendly.

I had the meat (carne) salteñas. They were so delicious. Best salteñas in Sucre! Very cheap 18 bolivianos for two. Great service too.

Great saltenas. I mean really tasty, sauce inside is lava so be careful! As for the guy at the door and the girl wandering around collecting dishes, replace them with mannequins. More cost effective i reckon. Once we got our ticket we had to wait...More

From the ambiance of the quaint outdoor courtyard to the piping hot pockets of deliciousness, we could not get enough of the El Patio Salteneria. It's flooded with locals and tourists alike and sells out fast! Get there between 11 and 12 to ensure you...More

We have been in Bolivia for a week now and have tried several salteña places in LaPaz and this Sucre location blew us away. A good sized salteña with great flavor. A bit most (as it should be) and delicious. Would go again - we...More
