Fantastic meal! The steaks are incredibly good but huge!! Seriously, one could feed two and I’m a huge eater. You also get salad bar included and so I did eat about a kilo of potato which obviously helped fill me up. Worth a visit.

I think here you eat the best beef in all Bolivia, nice attendees. Love it. Beside, it is Tarija, so the variety of wines is very attractive, I'd advise try a semi sweet wine. The wine is around 100bs, I'd also advice to try Picanha.
