I stumbled upon this place and decided to give it a try since it looked quirky and interesting. I waited around 20 minutes and no one had come to take my order. Once I got up to leave the waiter came. I ordered from the prix fixe menu (20 soles for 3 courses and a drink). I ordered the ceviche,... More

Very cute and unique place, with great food for a decent price and good service. Didn't appreciate the derogatory comments regarding capitalism on their website... seems a little unnecessary and counterintuitive for a business that services American tourists probably more than anyone else. Definitely enjoyed it less knowing they were politically motivated. Also, options for vegan/vegetarian guests are very limited.... More

Unfortunately, we found this gem in our last night in Cusco, otherwise, we would have returned again and again. The 3 course meal for 20 Soles was a great deal, and it included excellent items to choose from. I was traveling with with my 2 kids(young people), one who is a vegetarian who is often disappointed with her meals. All... More

I love this restaurant! The food, drinks, and service are great. I recommend the margarita pizza and mint lemonade - YUM! The best part about this restaurant is the proceeds go to a local after school program for underprivileged children.

It's a great place to chill and eat after walking all day long. The service is very good and they effort to answer your questions about the meals. The food was good.

we read that this restaurant did charity for poor children, and so we decided to try it, and give our contribution. once inside, the decoration looks a lot like that of a kindergarden, and the menu like a book of tales. However, the food was not very tasty, and we decided to stay only on two starters.

My husband and I ordered the daily menu which was delicious and filling at a reasonable price (S20). Still more expensive than where the locals eat, but cheaper than some other places. The money goes to a children's charity, so we didn't mind paying a bit more. The atmosphere is very fun as there are stuffed animals all over the... More

This place has a great vibe to it, and doesn't disappoint in serving up tasty, affordable food. Quite a varied menu and great selection of fresh juices. Different soft toys were seated on chairs at every table - we had Eeyore for company :) Definitely worth a visit, and the best bit is that proceeds go towards a children's charity.... More

My sister and I stumbled upon this cute little place on our last day in cusco. The atmosphere was great and the staff was extremely friendly. They had a special going on where you could get a three course meal for 20 soles... it was the best money I spent the whole trip! Not only was the food ridiculously cheap,... More
