    HUARI: Don`t miss the bolivian music and dances...

    playing charango....

    While you are eating a nice dinner you see a magnificient show of folkloric bolivian dances.
    All the place is well decorated by paitings, masks, that make this place really interesting. I had the chance to realize to notice how beautiful is, since i`ve enjoyed my norwegian friends there. they were really impressive to be there. so i decided to make a tip about this place.

    Favorite Dish: Definitely llama`s meat.

  • The Plaza Hotel: eating out in luxury

    by trystanmd Written Sep 24, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although not very Bolivian, if you have some spare money to blow, the Plaza Hotel is a good place to eat. I had a full meal including dessert and 2 drinks (coca cola though, wine might boost the bill) and it only cost me about $8. Expensive for Bolivia but it would've cost a lot more for the same anywhere else in the world. The view from the window is incredible especially at night when the whole city and it's sloping sides are light up at night.

    Favorite Dish: It's all quite posh, but good food, there's not a hell of a lot for vegetarians though. They had one meal but i didn't fancy yet ANOTHER load of greens so I had some sort of chicken meal.

    you pick one, they all looked great: parilla supreme

    mouth watering parilla in La Paz

    There was a string of parillas just past Mercado Camacho on Avenida Simon Bolivar. We had gone to the market in hopes of eating there but it was already closed for the day. We kept walking and followed our noses to find these busy eateries, all with men in front maning their grills. It was a sight to behold and the smell would drive you crazy and into one of them if you were remotely hungry (and liked meat of course!).

    Favorite Dish: They had steaks, ribs, chicken, pork and sausages. We had a combination plate which was served with fries, some kind of grits that were tasty too, and plaintains (fried banana type fruit). It was massive and a bit too much.

    stalls in markets: local market stalls serve tasty cheap food

    by richiecdisc Updated Mar 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    how can you beat this ambience? ;)

    The markets are great fun to walk around but nearly impossible to not eat somewhere. The women nearly grab you to get you into their places. It's actually kind of fun and though you feel a little out of place at first, they seem to enjoy having you there. We felt like we were in "Land of the Giants" a bit as they were all so small and so were the tables and benches. Also, try the street vendors. The egg sandwiches are great and I even had a steak, egg, burger. It's a bit greasy but a filling and cheap lunch. Besides, it's what the locals eat so give it a try.

    Favorite Dish: The soups are generally always good, but don't get a blanco as that is just broth and a bit bland. Stick with the stew-like concoctions though the meat is a bit iffy. lol It's good as you can see everything and just point at what you want.

    Acurio II: cerviche in La Paz?

    by richiecdisc Written Feb 22, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    cerviche

    This was a real hole in the wall and though I was initially skeptical about eating cerviche (raw fish) in Bolivia, this place was worth the risk. It was very busy and only open for lunch so get there early.

    Favorite Dish: You got a small bowl of cancha first off and then a bowl a what seemed a warm cerviche broth, which had a strong lime flavor. Then you got your cerviche and I had the Lake Titicaca trout. This is "cooked" only with the acid of the lime juice it is marinated in. When I went to pay my bill, the owner gave me a small shot of this very tart liquid. It was like the soup, but way more concentrated. It was really salty but it seemed to really finish off the meal well, and he motioned that it would make a man of me by grabbing his crotch and laughing. He then went about serving his food as usual. ;=> But hey, it was like two bucks for the whole meal so who can complain.

    Prado

    all around Prado you find different restaurants, shopping possibilities etc., coming from south go up some streets on the left side (direction plaza Murillo), here you find more bars and shopping center as well, right side just before San Francisco church go up the street to find a lot of souvenir shops as bars as well.

    My restaurant

    I found this popular eatery in a public market by chance. I was wandering around San Francisco Square and suddenly entered this market where there are several places for ceviches, meat and other popular meals. There are also fruit juices and places for breakfast.

    Favorite Dish: The food was excellent and the plates big. And it was so cheap!! About 1-2 USD for a whole meal!

    El Arriero: Con la mejor carne del mundo

    by iammon Updated Apr 15, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On their business card they say : con la mejor carne del mundo and I think I really have to agree. My mouth gets watery just by remembering it. It is indeed an Argentine gem (quote Lonely Planet)! Food wise speaking...the ambience is nothing too special.

    Opening hours 12:00 to 15:00 and 19:00 to 23:00

    The taxi driver told us that it is a very expensive place ( he almost got us worried) but it really isn't by European standards. If never had a better piece of meat for less!

    Favorite Dish: It is a place where you can get a good glass of wine as well.

    Le Haut Plateau: the best, newest and hottest restaurant in La Paz

    by jglsongs Updated Aug 6, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Le Haut Plateau is relatively new, but stands out as probably the most innovative and stylish restaurants in La Paz, in Bolivia, and possibly one of the most unique on the entire continent.

    Save yourself the trip to the establishments in the Zona del Sur and treat yourself to this place just minutes from the Prado.

    Favorite Dish: The food is Bolivian-European fusion, which means you have to experience it to believe it. More expensive than most, but seems more like Paris or New York on the inside than La Paz.

    Nice quiet restaurant with extremely good food. Maybe a bit pricey for LaPaz but you get what you pay for.
    Waiters/Waitresses speak a little English, menu is written in both languages service is excellent but a bit slow when busy.
    Also has limited vegetarian food and salad bar.
    Recommended.

    Favorite Dish: No favourites just all round good food.

    Tambo Colonial: Great Llama and Trout

    by ezeta Updated Jun 24, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tambo Colonial recreates the ambience of a Tambo, the place where food were traded. The English speaking staff is very friendly. It has a salad buffet included with quinoa salad. There is a variety of Llama steaks, and trout from Lake Titicaca. Also pasta and meats.

    Favorite Dish: The llama with mushrooms is something that tastes different, you should try it.
