They serve Bolivian classics (also a combo platter) and also international dishes in a rather elegant atmosphere. You get free starters, and portions are huge.

We had a wonderful dinner at el vagon del sur. The steak stew wasn particularly good as were the fried trout fritters. Service was excellent. It´s not in the heart of the business district but not far from the green teleferico.

You have to eat in this Restaurant if you are in La Paz. Typical Bolivian plates are the best, but their "chupe de Camarones" is fantastic! better than any place in Peru.
