  El Cafe Frances
by DSwede

While the dress code may not be fully elegant, the restaurant is probably one of the more sophisticated in town. But don't let that scare you away, if you are wearing shorts and sandals, you will still fit right in, even for dinner.

The tables have linens and the walls are decorated with art and decor to try to make it feel like a French Cafe. While they do a good job in some aspects of that, it is still a very Paraguayan influenced restaurant. But the food is quite rich and will prepared, so maybe the chefs practiced in France...

Favorite Dish: The restaurant has great steaks, since I think almost all Paraguayans know how to do steaks.

But they also serve fondues, sweet and savory crepes, and other various French influence dishes. We tried the fondue which was quite delicious.
