Came here for just a hot drink and use the WiFi before catching our bus back to la paz. Woman shouted at my partner and took out his charger from his laptop and said we couldn't stay if we were just going to have drinks. Stay away from this place unless you want rude service and the hot chocolate I... More

We had good breakfast here so we rreturned for dinner and everything was ok. The service kind of grumpy but the food was tasty and the wifi good until the point it filled up with people.

We didn't receive what we ordered and the food was totally horrible! Furthermore, it was far more expensive than in any other place we ate before. Service was very unfriendly. Just don't go there!!!!

My friends and I went to this restaurant yesterday night. There was only one waiter and he's not very friendly. We waited more than half an hour for the first order to come. The taste was average, not worth a long time waiting.

Waited over 30 mins for pizza when the restaurant was completely empty. When we asked (twice) for ice with our drinks the waiter just said 'why?' and then walked off. Average food at best and I have no idea why the Lonely Planet recommends it.

The positive; service was quick by Bolivian standards for a group of 8 and the Nachos with avocado (not quite guacamole, but better) were the best I have ever eaten. Homemode and still warm. The food the others had was alright with a somewhat small portion size.

I had a lamb dish that was tough and with little taste. The dish only contained lamb meat, fried potatoes and rice. When I asked where the accompanying salad was, I was told that this dish didn't have any... (Although I was sure it was in the menu) After dinner I asked the menu again to check what was described...

When we arrived at Uyuni we chose this restaurant because it was in the lonely planet. It was not that special, even though the LP wrote a good review on them. The pasta dish was very small and didn't taste that well. The staff was constantly playing with each other and making noise. There must be a better choice in... More

We went there while we were waiting for the bus after the uyuni tour... the waitresses were extremely unfriendly, they cut our wifi because they believed we didn't buy enough at once... laughing at us when we were wondering why it wasn't working anymore. I have never encountered such a bad experience in a restaurant. Don't go!!

I wouldn't even normally write a review for this kind of thing by the large lady who seemed to be in charge was so horrendously rude I thought why not. Having come to the review section I can only laugh at all the previous reviews. Seriously bad service from her. Feel sorry for the other staff who have to work... More
