The menu at Latina Cafe offers a nice variety, including food for vegetarians, even vegans and all other tastes, including a delicious chicken curry. The restaurant is nicely situated, with nice views from the many windows, and though large, has a cosy atmosphere.

This restaurant seems to cater specifically to tourists (which is not necessarily bad) so the clientele when I was there was strictly that. The service is OK but not especially fast. The food is acceptable but nothing special and some of the portions are notably small (e.g. ratatouille which is listed among the main dishes but does not suffice as... More

Been going and inviting people from all over the world to LATINA CAFE for over 8 YEARS now, and although I never really rate things, I feel this just might be the RIGHT PLACE to start. Our entire lives' depend on TRUTH, at least for me, so here's what: LATINA CAFE WAS, IS and probably ALWAYS WILL BE YOUR BEST... More

Went there for lunch. It took a while to find the restaurant but after several asks, we made it. Beef steak was tender with good portion. Went well with the Argentinian house wine. When we were there, a local musician was playing some melodic Latin songs which enhanced the experience. A good place to go.

We really liked this restaurant. The menu was varied, with some more unusual options than you usually find in Bolivia. I was very happy to find a vegetarian dish, ratatouille, and it was really tasty! There's wine from Bolivia or Argentina if you prefer that - the red Argentine wine was my favourite. It's a lovely place too, very nice... More

After a long day traveling fighting through potholes and landslides, our evening meal was the best we had in Bolivia. Sylvain was a wonderful host and the food was delicious, well-presented all in a wonderful setting. Definite yes

We were very happy to find this place, after a long drive from Santa Cruz it was difficult to find a good dinner after the holy weekend. Firstly the service we received was excellent, and we found the food delicious. The tabla de Mesa was great to start and we enjoyed their pastas. Also try the wines from Samaipata, like... More

Excellent food, great environment, friendly people. They don´t always offer it, but when they do, you must try their lasagna. It is fantastic.
