    While the dress code may not be fully elegant, the restaurant is probably one of the more sophisticated in town. But don't let that scare you away, if you are wearing shorts and sandals, you will still fit right in, even for dinner.

    The tables have linens and the walls are decorated with art and decor to try to make it feel like a French Cafe. While they do a good job in some aspects of that, it is still a very Paraguayan influenced restaurant. But the food is quite rich and will prepared, so maybe the chefs practiced in France...

    Favorite Dish: The restaurant has great steaks, since I think almost all Paraguayans know how to do steaks.

    But they also serve fondues, sweet and savory crepes, and other various French influence dishes. We tried the fondue which was quite delicious.

    The friends I was visiting have come to this restaurant many times. It is one of their favorites, not because of any one specific thing, but rather a combination of the a few. The price is moderate, the service is okay, the food is pretty good, but the large patio and outside seating is very pleasant.

    Favorite Dish: They have lots of snack and sandwich type foods. But for those who like it, they also have a few selections of the milanesas (breaded steaks)

    They also have surubi on the menu too if you have not yet had it in Paraguay.

    If you come to San Bernardino, chances are that you will be coming by a private car. Public transportation does exist, but it is neither the most convenient nor common.

    Option #1 - if you come to San Bernardino, the most direct route will be HW-2. This is the fastest and most direct route, but it is also the least attractive. (about 40km one way)

    Option #2 - leave Asuncion towards the airport. Follow the signs for "Luque". When you get to Luque, follow signs for "Aregua". If you see my Aregua page, you'll see there are some things to do here. (about 45km one way)

    Option #3 - Take the back roads. Leave Asuncion towards the airport. Follow the signs for "Luque". When you get to Luque, follow signs for "Ruta Luque - San Bernardino". You may have to ask someone since some intersections have signs, others do not. This way will offer you peaceful vistas, views into the mangroves and wooded areas. (about 50km one way)

    I recommend you take #2 & #3 so you make a circle around Lago Ypacarai.

    I did #2 and #3 by car.
    I did #1 and #2 by bicycle.
