We ended up here on a sunday, almost everywhere else was closed. We had a vegetable lasagna and a vegetable pie. The service was not very good, the food was ok, just overpriced. The lasagna was partially very salty. Wouldn't necessarily recommend, just if you are out of options.

Good value, tasty set lunch and nice atmosphere. Got food poisoning a few hours later - I think my vegetarian lasagne was not reheated very well. Unfortunate as otherwise a nice place with good options.

We went to koala after reading reviews about the awesome and filling set menu for 40 bolivianos and we were not disappointed. We could hardly even finish our meal. The vegetable soup was one of the yummiest things I have ever eaten and I struggled to finish all of my courses and with regret I couldn't even finish my banana... More

I ate twice here during a recent trip, the food is fantastic and the portions are large. The 40 Boliviano set lunch was more than I could eat -- a cheese crepe, huge bowl of quinoa soup, a lentil burger with fries, and a piece of cake. Couldn't eat the cake, so they gave it to me to go. Service... More

Food is average but the menu deal dia had four courses, including pancakes, soup, a burger and a slice of cake (a huge slice of cake). Good value. Service was ok, slowish. It's close to the main square, opposite the casa de la moneda and above the koala tours office.

Fresh and delicious vegetables, which is hard to find in Bolivia. Also good cake and coffee. Nice location with beautiful view. Good price-performance ratio.

It seemed like a neat place when I walked in, but the staff didn't even acknowledge me and I had to go and ask them for a cappuccino. When it finally arrived, it was some of the worst coffee I have had in South America. Wifi was ok though.

Potosi is not an expensive city so this cafe certainly uses the fact that they also own a Hostel and a tour operator to advertise for them. The food is OK, but a bit overpriced. It is an OK place to taste lama meat

Quality of the food is not great, the staff is not very welcoming. Better find another place. There is functioning Wifi though.

It was had to go past the 45 bs set lunch. You get the option of a crepe or salad, soup, main meal and dessert. The quinoa soup was huge and delicious and the fried llama, chicken schnitzel and banana cake were tasty and filling. The only negative was that we asked for fries for one main and salad for...
