Yes, they add a tip to your bill

I have to agree with several reviews that the fact that they add a tip to your bill is a big turn off; however, the food was not that bad! I had the Alpaca and it had a great presentation also, it tasted good. Maybe I got lucky! My mother wasn't so lucky though, she did not like her meal... read more

We just came back from visiting Machu Picchu after Christmas and spent 2 nights in the town of Aguas Calientes. On our first night there we essentially entered at the first restaurant we found in the square, as it was pouring and we did not have the chance to look around. The place appeared charming, well decorated with folkloric themes.... More

If you like terrible food and getting ripped off, you'll love Amaru. We had just finished our 4-day Inca trail trek and had a few hours to kill in Aguas Calientes, and the super aggressive women in front of Amaru waived us in with promises of free pisco sours. We thought that sounded good, so we went in. Here's what... More

Having just eaten at the Tree House the day before for the most amazing meal, we figured we would grab something quick in the square before heading to the train. We expected it to be a HUGE tourist trap with sub par food & exorbitant prices, but we did not expect horrible service and an additional 30-50% added to our... More

We just went for a cup of coffee in the morning. Same surprise as all other reviews; wrongly added Total (ie not adding numbers in own advantage) and including a ridiculous service charge that we have not seen before in Peru and that other reviews (that we did not read) indicate as Well. Going into discussion did not help as... More

3 of us stopped by to have dinner. We noticed 2 people sitting next to us having issues with their bill, so while we waited for our food to come out, we tallied what we ordered and worked out the total before hand. My brother and husband's food looked and seemed nice, mine however had a big problem. I ordered... More
