ALMUERZO BUFFET VEGETARIANO DE LUNES A SABADO A SOLO 10-15 SOLES($4) INCREIBLEEEE Restaurant Aldea Yanapay provides delicious Peruvian ,italian ,marroqui,thailand indu food (with some European favourites) in an unforgettable and unique setting.

One of the best restaurant I've tried in Cusco

I found that restaurant through the online platform visit.org and it was just great! The food was great and the ambient was perfect! Love the place. The waitress explain me more about the social project they are developping. Food is good, ambience great and a social mission, love it :)

We were looking for a vegetarian restaurant in the center of Cusco and we walked through the streets trying to find one. When we read the menu and what it cost we realized that it would be the perfect place for lunch. We were very happy that we chose this restaurant. A vegetarian buffet with lots of Peruvian dishes and... More

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. The food was just delicious, and the prices were very fair (it's actually cheap) we went there looking for lunch and got the buffet for just 15 soles, it was... More
