We had breakfast here, the environment was great, there was english music, fast wifi and a clean washroom. They had Korean ramen on their menu but we did not order cos it was overpriced. Do not order the fruit salad, it was way too sweet. The American breakfast was disappointing, they only gave us a cheese & ham sandwich.

Just recalling our experience here makes me feel sick. The sole waiter had dirt under nails and uniform that clearly had not been washed for AT LEAST several months as it was caked in food (we came in the precious day to look at the menu and it was the same). We asked for the salsa on the table to... More

At the hotel was strongly recommended... sadly it wasn't the best option. The service was terrible, and food just ok. I'll not come back.

All the rest of the places in town seem super cheezy and poor in quality. I came here twice. This place was quite different. Being off the main road helps. Staff treat you with respect, and not just a 'one night stand'. I only had coffee here, but saw the food, and looked great. I ate somewhere else on main... More

We visited Kactus after our salt flat tour with a group of 17. We were greeted by the lovely owner who helped us sort out a lost baggage problem. We had an excellent meal, soup and spaghetti. It was perfect. Staff are excellent and food is very filling. You can also arrange salt flat tours through the organised our tour... More

When my wife and I arrived at the Kactus, they were just opening for the evening. One would expect that effort would be made to prepare a decent meal. Not so! Service was not quick nor friendly. I cannot remember what we had but the vegetables were straight from a can and the meat tasteless. I would have rated it... More

We went here specifically to have Asian cuisine. Don't be fooled. They have instant ramen noodles in the Styrofoam container it comes in to offer. They should not be advertising Korean food, this is complete misinformation. Their menu is all traditional Bolivian food and there is not one selection of a freshly made Korean dish. The service is also extremely... More

Inform you that if we have Korean food and one of the options is the ramen soup, also have Korean dishes freshly made, it seems unjust publication, because here... More

This is just meh. Slow service, our pancakes were ok, but at least there was free wifi, clean bathroom and comfortable temperature. The agency inside was very nice to us.
