I had the house specialty fish here, recommended by the waitress, and it did not disappoint. The sauce was fantastic... one of the best meals I've had in Bolivia. Reasonably priced and cold drinks on offer! I recommend this place.

We both got sick after visiting the place. We also heard from other travelers that also complained about being sick. We can not recommend this place.

Lovely open air setting. Both my boyfriend and I had the fish special, it came wrapped in foil in a beautifully fragranced sauce. A very generous portion of fish too. Best fish dish I've had since travelling round South America.
