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

Ate lunch here with 3 friends... Everyone really liked it. I had the falafel sandwich (delicious). Decor inside is colorful and cute. Lots of options on the menu including vegetarian. Prices are great for such good food... Would definitely come back if I had time.

The restaurant has its own vibe that is very welcoming, warm and creative. The welcome is warm and friendly. There is a lot of creativity; a three in the middle of the room with decoration (valentine, christmas etc.), there are dolls sitting on the chairs and you can play games if you like. Also, they organizse game nights, like bingo... More

I'd read the reviews but it was still a bit of a surprise seeing the place! The decor is fairy tale inspired so is quirky and fun in some parts (we had a lion soft toy sat at our table with us) but slightly dark in others (dolls generally I think are creepy). The tree in the middle was beautiful... More

A great place! I felt comfortable there. The atmosphere is very warm and the persons in change are nice, considerate and efficacious! Activities are fun and it's all for a good cause. You can go there and meet volunteers at the Aldea Yanapay school quite easily. I am very much looking forward to go there to try the food out!... More

The decor is to say the least quirky but it lets itself down with poor wine (inexcusable) and average food. It's a great pity as there is huge potential and the owner is great fun but.... The night we went a live musician started and just too loud, conversation became impossible. So no, this is not the place unless as... More

I like the atmosphere, the food, the staff... If you're in the mood, put on a silly hat and enjoy life as good as it can get in Cusco! lots of vegetarian options, generous servings best thing is that the more you eat/drink, the more money raised for a local schoolkids project :-)

This was a very quaint looking, interesting place. We had an awesome Canadian waitress who told us about the restaurant and its cause. It is a social project geared towards the betterment of the local school kids. All proceeds go towards the project. We found their Christmas tree interesting. It was covered with all types of hats from fables and... More

Eat here! Even if you just go in for a milkshake. Take a break from the hubbub of Cusco and have a nice place to sit and eat. Go on a Monday night to play games and donate money to the fantastic program for children, also called Aldea Yanapay.
