Authentic Peruvian food is delicious and inexpensive. This is does not have either. Our food was bland and it cost s/20-s/25 per meal. Down the street at Sergio's we had the Menu of the Day (soup, main and drink) for s/6 per person.

We got dinner here simply because it was right behind our B&B (Hostal Iskay), and it was deserted, the waitress was slow and a bit clueless, and we waited forever. But then... it was so good!

Our hotel staff recommended this place. We were the only diners, which was a downer. Excellent stuffed peppers and Yucca chips. Friendly service. Not too sure about the squealing caged guinea pigs (cuy) in the yard on the way in...are they being fattened up for the tourists?

To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of cuy (guinea pig), but I guess it's something you should try if you visit Peru, and this is one of the best places to do it. They have their own cuy "farm" and claim to be the experts in this dish, providing it to other restaurants. The most popular preparation involves... More

Definitely recommended. A unique spot right near the center that has authentic food and quality service. We went for lunch. We had gone earlier in the day to order our guinea pig and came for lunch to enjoy our feast!

Had breakfast included here as part of our stay at Hostal Iskay. Large breakfast with pancakes, eggs, good coffee and juices, yogurt and honey or candied fruit. Cheese, ham, etc. - we didn't need lunch after eating breakfast here!
