We had chicken wings, chicken/Quinoa lasagna and of course the Fish Curry! All three were DELICIOUS! Definitely up there with the best food we have eaten in South America. Highly Recommend

This place serves the most amazing fish curry, wrapped in a banana leaf and grilled. I couldn't get over how delicious it was! Expensive by Bolivian standards, but I did not regret it.

Very nice open air setting, and the owner is wonderfully friendly, even with limited English. The fish curry was recommended and rightly so, it was awesome - best meal (so far) in Bolivia.

We had lunch at El Nomedico. We tried the fish curry, chicken and ribs. We did not really find it so spectacular. It was just OK. For this price we ate much better in Bolivia. The owner was very friendly and waiting time reasonable.
