At the hotel was strongly recommended... sadly it wasn't the best option. The service was terrible, and food just ok. I'll not come back.

All the rest of the places in town seem super cheezy and poor in quality. I came here twice. This place was quite different. Being off the main road helps. Staff treat you with respect, and not just a 'one night stand'. I only had coffee here, but saw the food, and looked great. I ate somewhere else on main... More

We visited Kactus after our salt flat tour with a group of 17. We were greeted by the lovely owner who helped us sort out a lost baggage problem. We had an excellent meal, soup and spaghetti. It was perfect. Staff are excellent and food is very filling. You can also arrange salt flat tours through the organised our tour... More

When my wife and I arrived at the Kactus, they were just opening for the evening. One would expect that effort would be made to prepare a decent meal. Not so! Service was not quick nor friendly. I cannot remember what we had but the vegetables were straight from a can and the meat tasteless. I would have rated it... More

We went here specifically to have Asian cuisine. Don't be fooled. They have instant ramen noodles in the Styrofoam container it comes in to offer. They should not be advertising Korean food, this is complete misinformation. Their menu is all traditional Bolivian food and there is not one selection of a freshly made Korean dish. The service is also extremely... More

This is just meh. Slow service, our pancakes were ok, but at least there was free wifi, clean bathroom and comfortable temperature. The agency inside was very nice to us.

This restaurant is a joke. Service is terrible, we tried to ask about the Korean food and kind of got a half hearted explanation and were laughed at a bit for not understanding. Ordered the set menu after specifying I was vegetarian - the server confirmed all the dishes on the menu that day were veggie. He then brought out... More
