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

It's about $22/person, for tickets, and dinner, but totally worth it! You can likely buy tickets through your hotel, or from Metro Cafe on the main square. $22 includes dinner from a fixed menu, and we got both the chicken and beef options, both of which were great. If you'd rather order off the menu instead of having a fixed... More

It’s a small room, so everybody sits close to the stage and has a good view. No big tour companies with hordes of busses, but cosy and romantic (eating by candlelight when the show starts). Great for a night out!

There is no doubt that the costumes, choreography, dance music and lighting is put together professionally and with plenty of experience. The dancers were mostly young adults and in great shape. So the three hours of the show went fast. Dinner was average and drinks were payable separately. Do not miss if you have a free evening in Sucre. I... More
