We've been there twice during our stay in Puno, because they've got the only pizzas in town that are as good as Italian pizzas! Always an enthousiasttic service! Good atmosphere, great to be next to the wood oven

I had beef noodle stir fry, the sauce was not very flavourful, but tasted better when I added the fresh chilli sauce I requested. My partner's aji de pollo was cooked well but quite bland - but that could just be the style of the dish, neither of us have had it before. The house red wine was nice. The... More

I am slighlty surprised to see some negative reviews. True the place is not a gourmet restaurant. And not the cheap 4$ backpacker resto. Also the ambience is not for wedding anniversary :) Still there was a very very cosy feeling with the owner, and we tried 4-5 different plates with we found very tasty and quite creative. From the...

Good location on the second floor along a pedestrian road; therefore not as noisy nor as "polluted" as to dining next to streets with vehicle traffic. Good, generous food for value. We had lunch during a weekday and clientele was mostly local business people. The waiter was efficient, friendly and patient with our limited Spanish.

Nice location on a side street on a second floor. My girlfriend's choice was excellent, a generous portion of avocado with vegetables. Very tasty. I ordered a club sandwich. 5 slices of bread with butter or mayo on the toasted bread. Way too dry even though I removed a slice of bread. Pretty cheap though and good vegetarian choices.

This place wouldn't be worthwhile even if it was half the price. They didn't have half the drinks we tried to order off the menu. Needs a lot of improvement in quality of food, service and general atmosphere. Don't go here if you don't like wasting money.

We ate here early one evening after a chilly journey back from the Uros, following a recommendation in the Lonely Planet. We were surprised to find there was only one other couple dining although it did fill up a bit later. We had huge omelettes and veggie lasagnes, which were very fresh and filling, along with beers and lemonade in... More

We tried this place based on positive reviews by Lonely Planet and our tour company. It was our worst meal in Peru. The starter was stuffed pepper but they seem to have used a chilli pepper as it was inedibly hot. The main course was Lomo soltada which was tough but otherwise acceptable. We asked for white wine and got... More
