We stayed in Rurrenabaque a few days and went every day to this restaurant.
The food was amazing. Every meal is fresh cooked and with fresh ingredients.
We have been sick and the lady cooked us a soup like your grandma would do it.
She is super kind, I loved to be there.

La Perla de Rurre

Reviewed By jeffsdunaway - Santa Cruz, Bolivia

BEST IN RURRENABAQUE----LO MEJOR IN RURRENABAQUE---This is a great place to eat, I took the suggestion from my server and ordered the Pescado (fish) Al Ajillo, It was served with french fries, rice and steamed vegetables. The fish was prepared in a special sauce called al ajillo which has a mustard and garlic flavor cooked in aluminum foil and served piping hot with alot of sauce. I sat in the outside patio área which has alot of shade from the two large mango tres. I wish I had more time to try their other plates but my time was limited.

Pizzeria Italia

Reviewed By EricMonia - Bromont, Canada

There must be 10 pages to the menu, but we could not have fish or chicken and about half the pizza and pastas were not available. We seemed to disturb the lady. A 8 yo boy brought us the pizza which was not bad. You can't really miss a pizza.

Had heard it was a party place--not the night I was there! Lot of families; no solo travelers. Drinks were OK; nothing special. Maybe I just hit a slow night?

Juliano's

The best restaurant in Rurrenabaque.Good service and good food at a good price. French and Italian cuisine with plenty of choice.

Reviewed By HelenSunSeeker - Johannesburg, South Africa

My husband and I stopped here for some pizza after an amazon tour.
The pizza base was homemade and cooked in a wood fired oven. It was thin and crispy!
The pizza had a good flavour, which lots of origanum and they had chilli flakes (first I've seen in S.America so far).
The only reason for a low score is that it cost Bs40 which was just too much as it was a pretty small pizza.
I guess in this town everything is overpriced, but my husband and I still would like to see good value for money.

The French Bakery

Iedere dag verse franse broodjes met diverse (zoete en hartige) smaken; echt top!

Reviewed By Matthew H

You must visit the French Bakery in Rurrenabaque - ideal to pickup a quick breakfast before jumping on to a jungle trek - most pastries are priced around 5-7 Bolivianos each - they have cheese / mushroom / ham / chocolate / etc - well worth the visit...

Luna Cafe

Reviewed By Daniel C - Dublin, Ireland

Really liked this place. Good food, good music and sport when its on. The bar is large and spacious with multiple tables and two pool tables. It also has a book exchange for the book worms. You can get a good main for 40-50Bs and the beers are around 25Bs.
The main waitress is a lovely woman who works tirelessly to help fill your belly.

Pizzeria La bella Italia

Reviewed By rapha_y_nici - Canton of Zurich, Switzerland

..where you can find a pizza which could be from your favourite pizzeria at home! You can choose inbetween four sizes (biggest one at least for two people) and you can create two different halfs with 6 different ingredients which are for free and 3 which cost a bit. Service was very friendly and the pizzas arrive quickly. We didn't have an autenthic pizza like this for a long time. We were two couples and shared two mediana (2nd biggest) with four individual halfs. That was suficient for us but for hungry guys you can order a mediana for one person :-) Overall, very tasty pizzas for a fair price, recommended.

Paititi

Reviewed By Kevin C - Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

I visited Madidi National Park out of Rurrenabaque during June of 2015, and visited Paititi for dinner both before and after my jungle adventure. The first time I had a really nice Fettucine Alfredo, and the second I tried their 'Paititi-style' fresh fish. Superb meals both times, and being on the second floor above ground level, you get a nice view of the river and the goings-on in the quite streets of Rurre while you eat. The fresh fruit juice was great too, and the staff are outgoing and friendly, while professional.
Highly recommended!
