A little out of the way, but worth the walk - Edit

This cafe was a little bit of a walk through the busy city from the backpackers area but we enjoyed it. Nice selection, set menu at great price. Very busy with locals.

Home style food away from home - Edit

This restaurant is still open and very popular with the locals. (June 2017)
This is a good option if you are looking for a wholesome vegetarian meal that won't cost you an arm and a leg. I am from Cochabamba and I eat there whenever I am in La Paz. The food is different every day, there is a good variety and it is prasadam. (Bolivian, not typical hindu)
The place is clean and they recently renovated the tables and chairs. I also like that they play very nice mellow music, the perfect accompaniment to a meal.

Pros: Varied, Clean, Prasadam

Inexpensive Bolivian prashad - Edit

I had lunch in this place 4 days during my visit to La Paz in May 2014. Every day there is a different menu. The main dish was not always my favourite, but the portions are generous and the price very affordable. It is not Indian food as most ISKCON "Hare Krishna" restaurants around the world but Bolivian food. One receives soup (choice between 2), salad (salad bar with 5 or 6 options), bread, a main dish with 3 or 4 items (one gets to select as well between a few options), a dessert (choice between 2) and a refreshment (choice between 2). The staff is very kind and friendly. For those who are Vaishnava Hindus, this food is prashad and consequently it has been offered to Krishna and it doesn't have garlic, onion, mushrooms or eggs. Please note that the restaurant gets very crowded for lunch (it's very popular among the locals as a lunch spot) so it's better to arrive early if you wish to get a table (there is also the possibility of take away). The sitting area is very nice, decorated with pictures of Radha and Krishna and it's very clean.

Pros: good location, inexpensive, it's prashad

It's closed permanently - Edit

Just to let everyone know this place is closed. Permanently, the person living there/taking care of the place told me the owner moved to Santa Cruise and that there is no restaurant there anymore. And I checked other supposedly "open" days and it was closed those other days. Luckily I saw someone who was cleaning the house who told me. So yea, was bummed because I was really looking forward to eating at this restaurant and meeting some devotee's here finally. Since i have to pick a rating, i give it 5 since i'm sure it would have been good!

Krshna Temple - Edit

Very nice place with positive energy. Food is lacto-vegetarian but always you can find something vegan. 2 people from the temple are vegan so there is always something to eat for vegans. Menu cost 12 Bolivianos. Check out the map how to get there. It's easy if you have directions.

Pros: good food, nice staff , very cheap

Cons: far from the center
