We ate roasted chicken, very delicious, french potatoes, good, and purple corn refreshing water. The staff were kind and fast too. Just the place is small.

This restaurant has two parts. The seating area in front appears to be finer dining with a show. They take credit cards in this section. We visited the dining area in the rear. No credit cards accepted but the prices are very low. Two drinks and two quarter chicken dinners amounted to 28 sols - about $9US. Can't beat that!... More

Very busy restaurant, I think it would be best to book but they managed to fit myself and my friend in for dinner. There was a show with traditional Peruvian dancing and music and the food was really nice and fresh.

While the rotisseri chicken was excellent and very tasty with its various spices, it was a bit disconserting afterwards to encounter a baby mouse on the floor as I visited the restroom.

Our guide took us here or we would not have found it. The speciality is Rotisserie chicken which was excellent. Each night there is a floor show for about an hour of traditional Peruvian music and dancing for which there is no charge, just a tip for the dancers. If you want to avoid this sit at the back of...

A good place for first-timers in Puno or Peru itself. The place is a restaurant-cum-show place (however, there's no extra fee for watching the show). The Andean dances presented were similar to those we had seen at Pena Huari, La Paz, Bolivia but the performers here were of somewhat leeser skill. The food... well, we went balistic in the sense...

Our tour guide recommended this restaurant for the chicken, and the show was a complete surprise! Most of our group got the rotisserie chicken, which they said was very good. I got aji de gallina, which was delicious. My friend's trout skewers were a little fishy tasting, but the veggies and sweet potatoes were very good. The service was okay.... More

along jr libertad, this restaurant offers a too loud and folkloristic show that doesnt let you enjoy the dinner! Food is nothing special and moreover it's too pricey for what it offers. not worth at all

This is a restaurant with live traditional Peruvian entertainment. We sat near the stage where the performers were going non-stop for about an hour. I found the meal quite inexpensive. The food was just OK. The alpaca was good but the rosti it came with was very bad; it was made with yucca and was wayyyyy too dry. The kingfish... More

Followed the tips to walk past the tourist-filled front room with a 'cultural' show in full swing. The back room is a cosy, no frills space with TV's blaring and a busy kitchen churning out the best chicken and chips in South America. Friendly waiters (I think they enjoy the idea of gringos skipping the show), tons of locals and... More
