Bolivian Restaurant Review: La Vieja Bodega in Sucre

(Sucre, Bolivia)

La Vieja Bodega, which in Spanish means "the old store" or "the old warehouse" depending on the context, is reminiscent of the dark Spanish bar restaurants you might see in a 1950's "El Zorro" movie. It has a fully loaded bar, lots of wood furniture and antiques throughout the dining areas, and a gigantic heavy, leather-bound menu.

La Vieja Bodega offers a big variety of meats, pizza, pastas, salads, and other international foods, plus loads of typical Bolivian fare. La Vieja Bodega even has fondue!

Most interesting, however, is the owner. Sergio Villa arrived in Sucre many years ago as a teenager to study, met his wife and stayed. By now his Spanish is so Bolivian you'd never know he's originally from... Brazil!

The restaurant is open every day from 12 noon until 3:00 p.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. across the street from the cathedral on the central plaza.
