This place is the 'happening' place for all locals. The politically connected and the office works come here to mingle and eat. The food is very good and the service is attentive. The empanadas are excellent as was the dinner meals. The price tag is very reasonable. You should have this place on your bucket list for Asuncion.

Lido Bar is indeed a tradition in midtown Asunción. You get there for lunch, the place is packed. You seat on a bench and have a wide menu in front of you... I chose the daily especial! You can never go wrong! Lots of business people had their yuca soup! I chose a Carne Asada, a dish made of lean... More

I really didn't understand what is so special about this bar. It is a comum street bar. I didn't have a good meal there, it was good for drinking beer though.

How nice this is - sitting outside, eating typical food and drinking a cool beer - and being almost the only tourist here under many many locals. I cannot really understand why some people found this place too expansive, in my opinion it is perfectly allright pricewise. Overall - go here to get the feel of the Asuncion tropic nights.... More

We had to sit at the bar but it wasn't a big deal. They are so busy and have a quick turnaround. We had Empanadas de Carne (beef), Caldo de Pescado (Seafood soup), Lomito a caballo (thin steak cooked with ham and cheese and fried in batter). They were all so good.

It's located right across from the Plaza de Los Heroes and Hacienda (Finance Ministry). Its one of the iconic food places in downtown (Lido & Bolsi). It's more casual than Bolsi, however. They serve casual Paraguayan food - empanadas, Milanesa, soPa Paraguaya (corn bread basically), budin (bread pudding) and Pulp soda - better version of Orangina. Orange juice and lemonade... More

Everyone knows Lido Bar. It is colorful and noisy. The food is good but not high cuisine. Sidewalk tables are available.

This is truly a landmark to "asunsenos"; located across the Panteón Nacional, is a place you should not miss. My classic is the "sandwhich de lomito", with a peach juice. Try it!

The restaurant is very well situated. It is in front of a paraguayan historic building, the pantheon. So the view is really nice. The soup is delicious, the place is known because of his fish soup (surubi soup). Their bread is awesome too, it is a little sweet. The pastel mandio(manioc empanada) is very very good too. The only negative... More
