Mullu serves an awesome double Pisco Sour and better Chico Moreno than we got anywhere else. Highly recommend.

Great spot overlooking the markets and mountains and a seat at the balcony is a must even if the ledges don't work. The service though is the worst we have experienced in Peru - never sure whether to judge by international standards but they did in their preface boast on how global they were and how qualified the chefs were....

Dear Ron Wamber, We are so sorry that you experience this inconvenience, that day we were short of staff because the Peruvian Independence Day is a very busy holliday that takes a week!!! We assure you that now we´re working as good as always. You know sometimes anywhere happens that some dishes just run out and we are sad those... More

We were at the Pisac market on a Sunday morning. My husband did not want to shop so a friend and I were shopping at the market and my husband found this wonderful restaurant to grab a beer and watch all the market activity. The restaurant has a balcony overlooking the market area so you can see all the colorful... More

Mullu is a wonderful cafe environment. I went here with a group of friends and we enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The place is like a new age electronic haven. If your into electronic music and its scene than you'll love this place. We shared the "Pad Thai" which is HUGE, dont order this by yourself. We also had the... More

Dear Onemindspinning, Thanks for enjoying our place. we suggest you that in your next visit just customize your Pad Thai, we can make it less salty, more sour, spicier, sweeter and change it from shrimp to tofu, or chicken to mushroom! More

This restaurant doesn't stand out, as you have to go through a retail store and up the stairs. Once you find it you won't want to leave. The restaurant is laid back with very good music. The global focus of their menu means a lot of exciting options to try. It doesn't stop with food. They have a broad assortment... More

This was the best food we had during our whole 5 month trip and some before that. Pisac seems an unlikely place to find such good food, but here it is, in a cool setting - funky decor and paintings. I would definitely not miss a trip here if I were in Pisac. Its a little pricey for Peru but... More

My dad and I ate here twice during our 2 day stay in Pisac. We were served by the owner both times and he went through the menu to help us decide what to get and custom made my order to not include onions (I'm onion family intolerant). The alpaca sirloin strips in one of the dishes (I think a... More

If you can sit out on the balcony on Sunday you will enjoy a sublime Peruvian experience. The balcony overlooks the main square which is the 'Peruvian' part of the market selling fruit, vegetables, meat etc. The other advantages is you can take some great photos without being in anyone's face/space. The colourful clothes and hats are extraordinary. Having said... More
