This restaurant is in the hotel of the same name. As is up the hill, you have a wonderful view of the lake and town from the terrace.
Is a bit more expensive than local restaurants, but a good experience here.
As I arrived from La Paz early in the morning, I had breakfast at the nearby village of San Pedro de Tiquina. Here is where the bus cross the strait on a ferry, so you have about 10 minutes to take a coffee untill the bus arrives to the shore.
TROUT is everywhere in Titicaca's restaurants. Not long ago, PEJERREY (Kingfish) was very common too, but now trout is king!
You can have it in many ways: with lemon, grilled, stuffed, fried... just name it!
Favorite Dish: The normal price for a trout is about 10Bs (1 and a half USD)
Along the beach area there are a lot of stalls selling mainly trout in nice shady terraces. I had a trout with a huge bolivian beer for 16 Bs (2 euros).
I was there on sunday and all the terraces were open, and it was really very busy, as this is the day when the pilgrims come for the sunday mass and so. I returned on monday and most of the places were closed, but there were still 1 or 2 open...
The Pacha Cafe is supposed to have good pizza but I wanted Bolivian food. The latter was just okay. The ambiance is not bad. There are windows on one side that face an interior courtyard that you cannot see from the street.
The place filled up and the one waiter was overwhelmed. We were one of the first ones there, so our service was okay but I could see that some of the other tables were upset about the slow service.
The Puerta del Sol has indoor and outdoor dining. The almerzo was reasonably priced and ample. I had a thin beef steak with rice, fried potatoes and cooked carrots. It also came with a delicious soup with vegtables, potatoes and noodles. There was also a fresh salad but I skipped it to avoid any potential stomach problems.
The service was good and the people were friendly. One warning though...the plumbing in the banos did not work.
well, to tell you the true i can`t say that this or that restaurant is better. when i visit copacabana i always have a trout for lunch. and i stop at any restaurant here. so, i recommed almost every restaurant here.
Favorite Dish: indeed that trout is the speciality of these restaurants. all because the fresh fish, good staff and excellent music. i can say that almost every restaurant play folk music, while you`re eating.
The more local restaurants are on Jauegui (one street over parallel and adjacent to el Mercado). These range from great roast chicken places to street stalls selling egg sandwiches and even trout at half the price of the restaurants (though you have to sit on a small stool in the street!). They are great as well and if on a tight budget well worth trying out, or just to dine with the locals for a change of pace. Though a great market during the day, it really comes alive at night and is quite buzzing with locals enjoying the cool crips weather.
Favorite Dish: Egg sandwiches and burgers are about 25 cents and a trout is about a dollar. It is about a quarter of the price of the restaurants and is a fun diversion too.
Very cozy rustic affair with lots of wood and a warm glowing fireplace. I must say the fireplace is what drew us to the place initially as it was cold outside AND in our room. There are lots of touristy restaurants on this main street of town and they all seemed busy and quite good value.
Favorite Dish: The local trout is very tasty though very different from what you might be used to. It's a fleshy pink fish, almost like salmon. They have lots of different preparations and both of ours were great.
Wayra Restaurant and Bar is a great place on the main street down to Copacabana beach serving delicious pizza's and drinks at a bargain price.
Favorite Dish: Pizza and beer.
at hostel and restaurant "La Cupula" you can find average local cost or if you stay there the night as well you can cook on your own in the kitchen if you like to.
