Great buffet

We went on two occasions. Very casual and kid friendly restaurant. On the fist day we ordered "a la carte" and on the second we had the buffer. We loved the food and the price.

the social project behind it could be nice, but it is the worst pisco and food I tasted in Perú. Come with your kids to see the place but don t eat and have only a bottled drink. This place shouldn't be in a restaurant guide and surely not with this ranking. People that give good critics must have been... More

Just came here for lunch and got the vegetarian buffet which was only s/15. Most of the dishes were vegan which was perfect for me and they were labelled as such. Food and service was delightful - would definitely recommend it.

We "discovered" this place by chance and were welcomed by a wonderful funky atmosphere and very pleasant staff. The restaurant serves wonderful dishes, some really creative and all were very tasty! We were surprised to hear that many of the staff are volunteers and that the profits go for a unique educational program. We could feel that the place is... More

This delightful restaurant deserves its wonderful reviews. Our knowledgeable tour guide took our group of 11 here and we all enjoyed a superb evening. It's a cosy place and there is plenty to look at re decorations! We sat upstairs and loved receiving our fairy tale creative menus with great choices. The charming waitress, dressed in costume, wrote our names... More

Came across this place reading the Peru Guide from Lonely Planet, and I'm glad we did! I got the Lomo Saltado and it was delicious! It consisted of soft, juicy, prepared medium well, beef tenderloin with a side of wedge cut potatoes and white rice. We came in a few hours after lunch so there was hardly anyone there. The... More

Combining food, service and atmosphere this is the most lovely place ever. The place is cozy and beautiful, the decoration is like from a fairy tale, very fun and creative.

We found this place looking for a lunch spot. The buffet was 15 soles which is cheap. The food was awesome. We loved the decor, it's very creative, and fun. You'll never stop looking around. We enjoyed it so much, we went back for dinner and dessert.

Tasty food whenever I ate here. The lunchtime Veggie Buffet is a particular treat at only 10 soles. On a Friday evening they have another buffet which is a themed night so either Chinese, Mexican etc. The restaurant itself is very cosy; staff are friendly, they have free WIFI, its clean and welcoming and very colourful! Plus, profits from here... More

One of the best not expensives restaurant we found in Cuzco, and of course in Peru. We love vegetarian meals but it's not always easy find no meat in Perù! So, you can eat a lot at Aldea at their tasty vegetarian/vegan buffet for just ten soles! We loved too their juices, worth to try it!
