Every day there are different food options, always with 3 salad options and 3-4 main/side dishes, and sometimes a little dessert or something extra like wonton chips. It is... read more

This is a great place! We discovered it thanks to tripadvisor, and loved it! Went there 5 times in a week we were in Cusco. The 3 meat lasagna is great, the trucha is great, and the vegetarian buffet is amazing. Waiters are super friendly and nice, and the place has board games that you can play there while you... More

Most of the reviews here are for the vegetarian lunch buffet, and my wife and I plan to try it while in Cusco. But, we had dinner at Aldea Yanapay tonight and found it to be truly outstanding. I had the Peruvian-influenced ravioli; my wife had risotto with mushrooms and vegetables. Our children are grown, but it should be noted... More

I liked this place and we went to here twice. The food wasn't extraordinary but it was good. I really liked these pancakes, they were small and fluffy.

Nothing bad to say about this place! Have been 3 times since being in cusco and have been happy every single time. 10 soles for the vegetarian buffet; and other menu items are affordable too. All really tasty, good atmosphere.

I came here because it was recommended by my Tour notes to check this place out. I was hungry and I didn't want to eat anything to heavy. The lunch vegetarian buffet is 10 Sols from 12pm-3pm. It was the best decision I made during my trip! I stilled stuffed myself from the buffet but it was so good. During... More

went here with friends a couple of weeks ago and left disappointed. I had a Thai Green Curry, which except for the color, had nothing to do with a thai curry (not spicy, no noticable coconut, no chili, no lemongrass, no cilantro, not the right vegetables), although the flavor was not that bad. If you want to make an own... More

For 10 soles you get a terrific variety of vegetarian options like lasagne, pastas and savouries. Delicious food and an absolute steal at the price. The atmosphere is terrific too!

I walked up and down around Cuzco looking for a true vegetarian cuisine. From the moment you step in, it feels like you're home. The beautiful decoration will take you back to your childhood. They have the best buffet for a minimal 10 soles. The main meals go from veggie lassagna to stuffed fish for those non-vegans. Incredibly affordable. I... More
