Really delicious food at very reasonable prices. Also one of the most unique atmospheres and decor you may ever come across. The Friday lunch buffet is vegetarian and all you can eat for only 10 soles. The food is so good that you'll definitely love it even if you're not a vegetarian.

Excellent food that is beautifully decorated on the plates which are painted with the juice of an an incan fruit. Nice staff, spanish aswell as english, german and french speaking. You can choose from different games (perfect for families) or eschange books in all languages. I can especially recommend the two alpaca dishes, the trout dishes and the tasty desserts... More

Original decoration, positive vibes, excelent service! The food is really good, and there is a huge variety, from peruvian, to european, tai, marocan. When i went there for lunch there was a vegeterian buffet for 10 soles with more than 8 choices. Tuesdays night there is a bingo game and a trivial quiz that is worth trying.

On Tuesdaynight from 20:00/20:30 you can play bingo and after that trivia for 2 and 3 sales. (the money goes to a childproject) It's a cosy place to be and the trivia is really funny. They also have a happy hour and some good cocktails. The chocolate cake is delicious!

The restaurant has one of the most creative design I have ever seen. The food is excellent, especially the buffet on friday nights. And the money goes to a social project that take care of kids after school.

You can read about this restaurants cause at it's website, http://yanapay.facipub.com/index.php? p_plantilla_seleccionada_temporal=72, but the basic idea is that the restaurant is a non-profit that provides benefits for children & education. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is fun and you can eat traditional Peruvian dishes here (I had the Aji de Gallino). We relaxed and drank a bottle of wine... More

As the title says the food is delicous.... they have a lot of diffrent choiches on the menu, from peruvian to thai food. But the food is also good, in the meaning that the profit goes to the social project Aldea Yanapay. I love the decoration in the restaurant, it feels you go back to your childhood! The people who...
