Great meal in La Paz - Edit

A nice restaurant in the heart of La Paz with a predominantly vegetarian menu.

We had an African stew which was delicious and slightly sweet as it had bananas in it. The quinoa risotto was creamy and tasty. Both portion sizes are decent and prices, though on the high side for Bolivia. are certainly affordable. 2 meals with a drink cost B110.

Pros: tasty food, nice ambience

Cons: Not all veg but clearly marked., slightly pricey

Nice But Pricey And Not Veg - Edit

Tierra Sana is an upmarket, tourist-oriented restaurant. We were disappointed to find that - despite advertising - it is not vegetarian, serving a number of fish and chicken dishes. I've encountered this a number of times in South America, and cannot understand it - if you advertise yourself as veg, you're not going to get any committed meat munchers.. But back to the meal: the prices are high, especially on Sundays with no set meal, so we shared the African Stew between us - very expensive at 39bs for a smallish meal of rice, beans, bananas and a few veges.

Pros: Nice Place

Cons: No Wifi, Expensive, Meat Served

In a city with few options yep, why not? - Edit

We went there a couple of times. The first we went to have dinner and they had a special dish with different foods combined which looked pretty good but when it came everything was really spicy! I mean really spicy! And they said nothing... not good! The other day we went for the lunch menu and it was quite good. Soup, salad, main dish and desert for 30 bolivianos that is expensive for bolivian standards! It's true there is no atmosphere at all anc an on-off wifi. Staff is normal, don't expect much sympathy but yeah normal... I mean in Bolívia there aren't that much veggie options so if you stay in La Paz for some days you might wanna go check it out! Just don't expect nothing special.

Pros: Good lunch menus, Wifi

Cons: Expensive, No atmosphere

Disappointing - Edit

I ate dinner at Terra Sana last night. I ordered the Sri Lanka Veggie Curry (34Bs) and a glass of the house red wine (20Bs).

There was no curry flavor in the veggie curry. The veggies were good, the rice was good, but when ordering 'Sri Lanka Curry', one expects curry, and there was not a hint in its flavoring or color; it was basically just steamed veggies.

As for the wine, it was terrible, a sweetish concoction of something; 10Bs would have been overpriced.

The ambience was poor, unless you like watching the one TV at the front of the restaurant which the tables face on which a Football/Soccer game is playing.

Cons: Misadvertised food, High prices for what you get, Avoid the 'house red wine'

Excellent soups - Edit

This place is easy to find (look for the steps while walking along Murillo). I ate here twice and was impressed with the vegan options and overall quality of the dishes. However, I didn't love the mixing of sweet and savoury flavours in some of the mains. I thought the soups were excellent and very filling on their own. Definitely try one or more of these. This restaurant seems to mostly cater to tourists so has English menus if required.

Pros: Soup, Good quality ingredients

Cons: Expensive by Bolivian standards

Good Food - Edit

My first vegetarian restaurant in Bolivia, and it was really good, I even had a vegan menu.
The food was excellent, I had the "Wok Oriental" with a very good Mango Chutney, although I didn´t like the taste of the Tofu, but it was a big portion with good brown rice, so I didn´t care.
The atmosphere of the restaurant was a bit cold, but the waiter was very nice and helpful.
Would definetely go there again!

Pros: Excellent Food

Cons: Lacked a bit atmosphere

A great place - Edit

If you have traveled in South America as a veg*n, you know it can be hard and frustrating at time. So when you find a decent vegetarian place, you consider yourself lucky, and if you find something like Tierra Sana, you won't believe your luck. Cute decoration, a friendly owner and great food, we just had to go back. The platter for two is a steal, and I highly recommend trying the peanut soup and the African stew, both of which were absolutely delicious.

Pros: excellent food, fair prices

Great option... look no more. - Edit

The place is nice but could be nicer, starting by taking out the TVs, but the important thing is that the food is AWESOME and there are many delicious vegan options and the staff is very nice. There are menus in English and Spanish.

Pros: VEGAN OPTIONS, NICE STAFF, YUMMY

Cons: COULD BE COZIER
