I like to visit this place because it has a secure outside dining area where you can enjoy your food from an extensive menu and watch the people walking by. There is something for everyone and my favorite is cuadril which is a nice steak.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 May 2016

This is one of the best restaurants in downtown Asuncion, the river fish surubi is served here, and you must try it. Of course the nice meat cuts are delicious, and lunch can be finished with a nice cortado - coffee . The ambience is really friendly, can become crowded very fast, but it is second to none in the...

This is a real institution in Asuncion. And as such very alive. Was in Asuncion with a colleague for a week and had dinner here three times. Used the bar section at the corner. This is a restaurant w really professional staff. Great food at reasonable prices. Good menu. Everything is fresh. High turnover and lots of locals go here.... More

We were walking a couple of blocks from our hotel on Estrella St. when we saw this restaurant with locals visiting it. We figured if locals eat there, the food must be tasty so we ate there, the next day and the next, until we left the city for our next destination. It's not fancy but the food is yummy... More

Excellent and inexpensive food with great attentive service. Old institution, with a variety of dishes that can please anyone. Always crowded with classy people and families. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried a local red wine made by Mennonites. It was very good and went down well with my perfectly cooked filet mignon and salad.

Excellent food in a nice setting. Open for all meals, late lunches, early dinners, wide international beer selection, draught beer, reasonable prices. A little slow serving food, but ok.

EL BOLSI is a must in Paraguay! It is a classic place where you can eat all type of foods! It is one of Asuncion's oldest restaurants. I recommend their Caesar Salad, Pira caldo (fish soup) and Empanadas!

The place on its own was very classy, crowded with older couples and families. There is a bit of waiting every time you try to eat there. The food isn't the best, but it is worthy what you pay.
