About us

Ancestral is a restaurant founded in La Paz in 2019 that has the concept of highlighting the Bolivian product cooked over a wood fire, which is the central element of its cuisine.

All served in a designer restaurant where you can see the fully open kitchen from any of the dining room tables.

Ancestral, grilled and local product.

Our plates

A la carte and tasting menus, all the dishes go through the grill, the wood fire or the clay oven at some point.
