Waited over 30 mins for pizza when the restaurant was completely empty. When we asked (twice) for ice with our drinks the waiter just said 'why?' and then walked off. Average food at best and I have no idea why the Lonely Planet recommends it.

The positive; service was quick by Bolivian standards for a group of 8 and the Nachos with avocado (not quite guacamole, but better) were the best I have ever eaten. Homemode and still warm. The food the others had was alright with a somewhat small portion size.

I had a lamb dish that was tough and with little taste. The dish only contained lamb meat, fried potatoes and rice. When I asked where the accompanying salad was, I was told that this dish didn't have any... (Although I was sure it was in the menu) After dinner I asked the menu again to check what was described...

When we arrived at Uyuni we chose this restaurant because it was in the lonely planet. It was not that special, even though the LP wrote a good review on them. The pasta dish was very small and didn't taste that well. The staff was constantly playing with each other and making noise. There must be a better choice in... More

We went there while we were waiting for the bus after the uyuni tour... the waitresses were extremely unfriendly, they cut our wifi because they believed we didn't buy enough at once... laughing at us when we were wondering why it wasn't working anymore. I have never encountered such a bad experience in a restaurant. Don't go!!

I wouldn't even normally write a review for this kind of thing by the large lady who seemed to be in charge was so horrendously rude I thought why not. Having come to the review section I can only laugh at all the previous reviews. Seriously bad service from her. Feel sorry for the other staff who have to work... More

This place was recommened on Lonely Planet and looked good but turned out to be opposite. The staff were rude when I asked for the wifi password, appeared angry the whole time and inattentive. The overpriced pizza I ordered was even worse. Just bread (not fully baked) with no tomato sauce, and poor cheese. Would not recommend.
