We visited Gustu with our kids (age 11 and 13). It was an amazing dining experience (lunch) that match some of the fine dining experiences that we have had back home in Copenhagen.
The palce is casual and waiters are cool and alert on specific needs ect. Our children loved every minute and loved the snacks and food.
We had the "lunch tasting menu" consisting of 3 snacks and 5 dishes. Perfect. Only minor downside was the passion fruit juice which somewhat was too perfumed to match the food - this was a personal order by myself. For this type of dining experience I would always perfer aqua minerale.
The greater cause is the network of local cafeterias and "culinary schools" named Manqu and Hot Pot Foundation that Claus Meyer and the Danish NGO IBIS runs in El Alto. These places are run by money from Gustu. Thumbs-up for this!

Nice restaurant with awesome food. Excellent service. Highly recommended if you are in La Paz. Try the coctels, I liked “Te con Te”.

Gustu is fantastic. This was one of the best meals I have ever had. We did the 8 course tasting menu with wine pairing ($90 US dollars each). Each course was fantastic and the Bolivian wine pairings were surprisingly good. We loved it!

Great way to experience the best Bolivia has to offer and some very unique dishes. However, if you're looking for an authentic experience, you will find yourself in the company of predominantly tourists here. We did the pairing, but I would maybe recommend just ordering a bottle of wine and keeping the focus on the food. I was almost too full to finish our last course. That said, the drinks are fantastic, just be sure to pace yourself and save room for courses to come!

This is an upscale overpriced and overrated restaurant. The food is good but overcomplicated and the service is average, all of this at astronomical prices for La Paz and in an " industrial" type room, not very cozy. Go instead to Ali Pacha by the former chef of Gustu, outstanding, better price value and much healthier...vegan food!
