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

I couldn't find my first two dining choices. So came here as I'd noticed it across from our dinner place last night (Lago de Flores). The lack of business should've been a hint right off the bat. Ordered limonada (s3), chicken soup (s12), ravioli (s22), Hawaiian pizza (s12.50). There were pieces of ravioli that weren't too well cooked. The cream... More

I had a stuffed avocado to start and then the famed Aji de Gallina. Both unfortunately were pretty flavourless and very mushy! The Aji in particular didn't taste of anything at all. Maybe the chef was having an off day but I would not recommend the food here at all. The Pisco Sour and the setting were lovely though! And... More

I went there following the suggestion of a famous tour book, but I was pretty much disillusioned about it. The restaurant is not far from Plaza de Armas and it offers all the typical Peruvian food, some can consider it the usual tourist trap. We ordered the famous Aji de Gallina, which was probably prepared in the best way, even... More

Puno has a handful of nice places to eat. Thus, forget Ukuku's. The dining hall is fine, but unfortunately, that's the best you can get from Ukuku's. The service is unkind (we had the impression they wanted us to leave as soon as possible), the drinkings (lemonade and apple juice were far below average) and the food is bad (my... More

We went there on a recommendation by our travel guide. It was a real disappointment. 5 of 6 dishes went back to the kitchen unfinished. The food was bad, be it noodles, pizza or starters. Slow service. It was the typical touristic trap.

Came in the late afternoon, and there were only 2 other people eating other than us. Took 15 minutes to get a beer and a coke. Vegetarian dish my wife ordered came with meat sauce. Poor service by a guy who didn't seem to care if we were there or not. Would skip this place. Plenty other options in Puno.... More

We stopped at this place in our first night in Puno, we thought it could be nice because its upstairs and all other places were crowded. Well, the food wasn't tasty, but wasn't awful also. We had a steak, which was hard but we didn't have any food poisoning. The place was empty when we arrived and we'd should consider... More
