The services is OK. Sometiumes the waiters maybe could be a bit more efficient, but in general nothing wrong with it. The food is mainly German style. It is good homesyle food. Nothing very original or interesting, but tasty simple food you would cook at home. The portions are quite generous. I only managed the main and had no space left for dessert. My main, steak, was cooked nicely. My paertner's soup was way underseasoned. The wine list quite good. The value for money also OK. Would not go back for a second time as will rather try other places, but worth a try.

Close to the central plaza of Santa Cruz La Casona offers a nice variety of great tasting central european style food. If you are from Germany / Switzerland / Austria and want to be reminded of the tastes of home this place is certainly worth a visit.

La Casona is a hidden jewel close to the centre of Santa Cruz. The surroundings inside the Restraunt are tastefully decorated with some really interesting items including a 2 meter long weaver bird's nest. The selection of food available it really comprehensive and includes many German and European favourites. Service is quick and friendly and the food cooked and presented to perfection.

La Casona is an interesting fusion of German and Bolivian food.
It is located a couple blocks away from the main square of Santa Cruz. The restaurant has a large courtyard and a few rooms. We have been seated along one of the walls of the courtyard. It was immediately observed that the courtyard was very hot with hardly any air movement. The kitchen is located at one end of the courtyard; perhaps the heat emerging from the kitchen contributes to the elevated temperatures. Smoking is permitted in restaurants here; a couple of smoking elderly gentleman managed to fill with cigarette smoke the entire courtyard so poor was the air exchange.
Service was attentive and quick with multiple servers for our company of nine.
The menu clearly shows the German influence and the dishes are prepared with attention and care. Some of the interpretations are off the original classics, however few will notice it here. Furthermore, there were some specials on offer like roast lamb with polenta and a dish of roast pork, mango, bacon served on a layer of squash ravioli both of which was delicious. The lentil soup was excellent, too. I believe none of us had any significant complaints about any of the dishes sampled. However, due to the increasing ambient heat the majority asked to pass on the dessert.
There was live music with an add on cover charge of Bs15.

High quality German-Bolivian fusion in a relaxed setting. Excellent specials, the chef really comes up with creative dishes. I had the tounge special on this visit and it was perfect! Also try the cheese and tomato appetizer, simply wunderbar.
