Nice vegetarian food. They have small bottles of wine which is nice for two person. Friendly staff and warm atmosphere.

It is listed here as only being vegetarian-friendly; however, my perception at least was that it was completely vegetarian, although any non-vegan place is as bad as another anyway. I had a menú del día, whose price I cannot remember exactly but which was likely...More

Atmosphere is a bit dark and boring but the dinner was really good. Vegetarian Falafel as well as meat was good prepared and fresh. Not the hippest place but good alternative for good food for fair a price.

Healthy, local and veggie food included in the lunch menu. Service was fast for Bolivian standards. Prices are very honest, we paid 24 pesos for an entire lunch menu. The place is attended also by locals. Definitely the restaurant to go to in Sucre, especially...More
