We had lunch for 4. Many varied and delicious flavours at extremely reasonable prices with charming service. We all chose vegetarian food, which we enjoyed.

- If a meat-eating man could come here twice for lunch then this is definitely the place to go for lunch. I would never have imagined my partner coming here twice for lunch. - Order the menu dia del for 6 soles (salad, main course plus a tea/homemade drink), only available for lunch. There are two branches in Cusco city,... More

We went to the location that was close to the Plaza de Armas, and it was nothing special. Most of their food wasn't made for vegetarians in any special way except that it simply lacked meat. Service was bad and the food took forever. Spend the same amount of money and go to Green Point in San Blas, you WILL... More

The restaurant includes a wide variety of vegetarian food, but most if not all of them include some sort of meat substitute which I personally was not a fan of. We had the qinoa soup and a pancake which were both nice. However, the staff was pretty grumpy.

Lunch and dinner menus they offer in their 2 restaurants in cusco ( the other one is on Tigre). Very very cheap menus and they also offer breakfast for 7 which I didn't try though. Very decent food for ver very little. Amazing place when on a budget!

We have eaten here twice and ordered the menu. My kids ordered french toast, which takes much longer. The menu costs S7 and includes a trip to the salad bar, a big bowl of tasty soup, a main dish (choice of 2) and a drink. The first time we ate there I didn't receive a drink and the second time...

Food was great! Portions were big too. Favorite veg place in cusco. Try the Lomo Saltada, the bistek al pobre, or the chiunfo de quinoa

Whether or not you are vegetarian, a vegetarian meal is a good choice as you get used to the altitude. Food is good and reasonably prized. A wonderful bonus is for one year old Jesu ( spelling?) to blow you a kiss.

The El Encuentro restaurants in Cusco (there are two) are the best place I have found so far for vegetarian food. I like the veggie burgers, though the Peruvian menü is the most popular lunch choice coming with soup, salad buffet, an entrance and a drink (usually an infused warm water) for only 7-8 soles (depending on which location you...
