Nice choice for hotel dining

We ate here one night as we were staying at the Casa Andina Private Collection hotel were it is located. The setting is lovely with two wood burning fireplaces at night with excellent professional wait staff. The food is excellently prepared and some of the nicest presentation we had on our trip... read more

If you're staying at the Casa Andina Private Collection Puno, you need look no farther than your hotel for great food. The best thing I had was the cheese platter -- in front of the fireplace in the bar. Brilliant! Good service.

We were staying in Casa Andina Private collection and went to the restaurant for dinner. It was the worst meal we had during our entire 12 day visit to Peru! The trout I had ordered was so smelly that even the heavy dollop of sauce couldn't disguise the disgusting smell. When I asked the waiter to take it back, the... More

Had the kingfish. Well prepared. Overall, the food was excellent. The restaurant is on the water, so probably very beautiful by day. We went at night and while extremely clean, the ambience is a bit antiseptic.

This place is sublime. We had lunch there today and everything was spot on - I recommend the stuffed pepper entree and the chocolate dessert. The bottle of Argentinian cab sav was amazing, and also the service was excellent. Staff speak Spanish and English. 7 soles (5min) taxi from town.

We had our best meal in Peru here. Yes, it exceeded the Peruvian fusion restaurants in Lima. We had the potato cream soup which was rich and smooth, just perfect. The snapper ceviche was not too acidic and just the right degree of spiciness. The trout dish with clumped rice and grape chutney was tasty, as was the vegetable risotto.... More

We had a fabulous dinner at this hotel restaurant (in spite of the obnoxious table of Americans next to us, playing rock, paper, scissors and balancing spoons on their noses). We ordered pisco sours and they made them tableside. It was the first time we had experienced this and were thrilled with the experience. The server explained the ingredients and... More

The restaurant is set in Casa Andina Private Collection hotel overlooking Lake Titicaca and has a captive market as it is a couple of km out of town so prices were high and food mediocre! I chose trout tortellini and received 6 pieces of tough pasta, a few shreds or trout and tomato sauce---45 soles. My husband chose the fish... More

There are not a lot of fancy restaurant in Puno. If you want a good meal, its a great option. The restaurant is located in a hotel, near the lake. When you eat, you have the view on a small part of the lake. Service was slow. We went for lunch, it was good, same menu as for dinner. Its... More
