Great food, but the servers ....

here the food is a little more up-scale but the servers were very poor. the prices were a little bit higher than other places, but then in USD we are taking a couple of bucks.

Actually I thought this was a nicer setting than most places we visited in Ollyanta. We chose this as the first place to have dinner on our 5 night trip to Ollyanta. This is probably the biggest restaurant that we visited, but there were limited customers when we were seated. We ordered our food maybe 15 - 20 minutes into... More

I see a lot of good reviews for this place, must have been good at some point in the past, but it was all in all one of the worst restaurant meals my family & I have ever had

If only the waitress smiled sometimes. This is a fairly large place but, it seems, had better days. The pizza was ok but my partner did not find her food too impressive. Service was very slow. Why does it take so long when you order a beer?

I suppose it's the food that really counts, but the satisfaction of eating out is an all round experience. It was a cold, dark environment, but it had been recommended. We ordered just a main course and a beer. Had to ask the staff standing around twice for the drinks. Staff were not friendly, but maybe that's the Peruvian way,... More

We enjoyed the best food here over the 4 day stay in Ollanta. The fresh garden salad was enormous, and as we travelled through North Peru and Ecuador, we were often yearning for such a salad as veggies were getting hard to come by. The rolled up trout with stuffing was also excellent. We thought the price for the food... More

Nice location just along the little river, even if it would need a good housekeeping. The menu is short but quite satisfactory with traditional dishes nicely and modernly presented. There are also pizza cooked in a wood oven and salads. Unfortunately the service is very slow and little attention is given to the hosts (some tables had been waiting more... More

We ended up eating here twice, after La Esquena was closed. People describe a great atmosphere , but I found the completely empty restaurant a little strange. The smell from the wood burning pizza oven filled up the room. The soups were quite good, the chicken being everyone's favorite. It seemed a bit expensive for what you got.

Our first experience with Peruvian food and the food was superb. Staff very good and very laid back. It was an easy walk from our hotel. A very intimate restaurant

We came here on the recommendation of our hotel receptionist. We both tried the lomo saltado, which was plentiful and tasty. Ambiance was lovely and our server was pleasant. I would certainly recommend Mayupata.
