We had almost given up hope of a decent meal after 5 days in Copacabana when we made the 10 minute walk along to the Rosario Hotel.

The dining room was smart, modern and upmarket with linen which was encouraging. Get a table by the window and watch the sunset! We were also buoyed by the shortish menu after the monstrous 15 page, we want to do everything, copy cat ones from town.

Small, fresh bread rolls served warm with two dips were perfect. I can strongly recommend the Bolivian Cabernet Sauvignon, we had a half bottle for 89BS.

Trout (trucha) carpaccio was smoked, nicely presented perhaps with a touch too much sauce but that would be nit picking.

Trout ceviche was a top dish as was the chicken ceasar starter (proving that there are other lettuces in town apart from tasteless iceberg).

We loved the alpaca steak and the fresh, light quinoa that came with it. Beef tenderloin was a good piece of meat but the small cubed potatoes could be crisper.

Tiramisu was so good we ordered another. Wild strawberry trio was OK but didn't quite hit the spot.

This was followed by a large espresso, the first decent coffee in Bolivia.

Service was great, a real relief to get drinks before the meal and starters before main courses etc. (yep most of the other restaurants can't manage this!). The Maitre D' deserves a special mention, professional with a sense of humour who made us feel really welcome.

Well fed and very happy, only downside was the bill, twice what we had had paid for our room at the beautiful and quirky Las Olas!

A lovely restaurant with a view of the Lake Titicaca. The trout was delicious. Also, had the caesar salad which could not have been better. Well worth a dinner just for the sunset.

A bit more pricey but well worth it.Beautifully plated and served by a well trained staff. If you like to treat yourself, this would be it.

Blows your mind. Great food and presented in a way you would never expect from a hotel restaurant in a small town in Bolivia.
The food would easily compete with some of the better restaurants in Sydney, at less than a fifth of the price.
