We thoroughly enjoyed the meals that we spent at El Huatacay! It is not easily found but once we found it (by chance), we kept craving their food. Try the guacamole with yucca sticks (?) for dipping. It is great. The owners have the cutest little daughter who greeted us and kept us entertained. We loved the stuffed peppers, the... More

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!

My wife and I read the positive reviews on this restaurant and decided to try it out. The food, ham sandwich and pappas rellanos exceeded our expectations. We believe it is one of the best restaurants in Peru, The service was wonderful with the waitress going out in the night for ato fetch us a mototaxi. The restaurant epitomized a... More

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!

Okay, so you can get cuy (guinea pig) which isn't my thing. I had the papas rellenos which were delicious! I was with a group and everyone loved their meals. Great reviews on the soups also. The people who run this restaurant are also very kind. They were closing the night we went and invited us in, fed us and... More

We stayed at Hostal Iskay next door for a week and breakfast here was included. The restaurant is big and mostly services tour groups in the morning which is both a plus and minus. There was a large variety of offerings - freshly prepared and tasty. But if your timing is wrong, a tour group will have just cleaned up... More
