Delicious fish curry with mashed potato - one of the best meals we've had in Bolivia! Decent prices (130 bolivianos for two large mains and two drinks) and huge portions. Great staff. Would highly recommend!

We ate at El Nomadico several times during our stay in Rurrenabaque and were never disappointed. The menu isn't huge but we still struggled to decide what to order as everything sounds great. Every meal we had was delicious! The fish curry is a must for anyone that walks in the door. Prices are great for the quality of food... More

We've eaten at Paul's place three times now and each meal has been excellent. The fresh juices are not to be overlooked and the cocktails are great but the absolute stand-out are the fish dishes in banana leaf. I never ever would have guessed the humble catfish could be elevated to that level of cuisine. We came on the weekend... More

Arrived in Rurrenabaque 1 night prior to our jungle trek, decided here for dinner based on reviews. I can easily back it up!!! Beer was frosty cold and the fish in banana leaf was melting in my mouth. Do yourself a favour a check it out!

Amazing food, especially their fish dishes which they cook in a banana leaf! We went twice, once before our pampas trip and again after as a treat 😌

I came back twice for the fish curry and ice cold beer. Paul is an Australian ex Pat who has been in Rurre for 17 years. He knows the land and is a very easy going guy and a great source of info besides having the best fish curry I've ever tasted anywhere including Asia.

There is a lot of great food in Rurre. But El Nomadico is the best. The food is fantastic both in taste and presentation. I went back many times. Options available for vegetarians, but they specialize in fish. They cook in traditional jungle style with food wrapped in banana leaves. The owner is great and helpful and speaks fluent English...
