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!

I had lunch here with some friends after spending the whole day in Valle Sagrado. (We were starving) I explained to our waitress we were in a bit of a rush and she was nice enough and served us in the most attentive way. I highly recommend the lemonade and the cheese burger and it was INCREDIBLE!! Very glad I... More

Highly recommend this place! The vegetarian lunch buffet was delicious. The price was very low. I did not expect such gourmet food from a cheap lunch buffet, but the food was beautifully prepared. And the server was wonderful; enthusiastic, friendly and helpful. And, the profits go to a good cause!

This place has great vegetarian lunch buffet until 3pm every single day at the lowest cost you'll be able to find in Cusco. 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 absolutely worth the 10 soles (about $3 USD),... 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.
