Ate in the restaurant section excellent service large choice of dishes international style. Stupified by a Paraguayan wine made by Mennonites with Dornfelder grape. Excellent and really inexpensive. So good we had another bottle. Not a bad word about the food either.

If you like to try local food wherever you go. This is a nice place to visit. It is well located, has a nice atmosphere, is a little noisy, very friendly staff and count with a pretty tasty menu. I will undoubtedly visit Bolsi again on my next trip to Asuncion

Some food were fried with grease several times. Not fresh at all. Bad ingredient. Don't waste money. I would like to recomend another place, if somebody want to try paraguayan food. That's my honest opinon after visiting this restaurant.

My friends and I were wandering around Asuncion and came upon this place! So pleased to find it. We were pretty hungry and it started to rain heavily shortly after we had sat down outside. We were already under a cover, but the waiters came and pulled down the sides so we stayed dry. Had chicken Caesar salad wraps, which... More

Me and my bf were recommended this restaurant by a local woman working in a spray colour shop next to a nice coffee place we visited, since she correctly guessed we don't eat meat. And Bolsi was really nice, as we could actually eat vegan here without problem - when travelling in South America we've otherwise had to be vegetarians.... More

I had lunch here last week. I ordered a small cup of surubi soup in a curry sauce that was amazing. For the main course, I had a grilled salmon burger, which was also excellent. It's a very popular joint for local businessmen so expect to wait for a table during lunch.

Spectacular menu, lots of choices for vegetarians/vegans. Actually been a long time since I needed so much time to make up my mind what to order. And the food was very satisfying, good portions and nice ingredients. The place does get pretty busy so you might have to wait a bit for service, but the staff is friendly enough and... More

I went with a colleague on the recommendations of many who live or have lived in Asuncion. Absolutely fantastic fish stew (and tremendous bread basket). Great service, and nice ambience to boot. Their empanadas make a great lunch option, as well!
