Please do not go to this restaurant. Terrible food and when the check arrived they added a 30% additional to the bill. We did not agree and they told us it was for service. Don't go there because they are only trying to cheat the customers. We tried talking to the manager but nobody was able to help us. Terrible... More

Not only the mussarela pizzas had a terrible sweet crust, but we were also surprised by a 33% addition to the bill. We were not told anything about this "fees" and it is not indicated in the menu. Worse was the fact that the waiter simply took our card and swiped into the machine, so by the time we checked... More

I have never written a bad review about a restaurant before but this one is necessary. We normally check trip advisor and go with a location with good reviews. We did the same tonight but the location we chose started serving dinner later than we wanted. We walked around the square and chose this restaurant. It took almost an hour... More

Papa la huancaina had like 2 small potatoes and the sauce was terrible.Waitress ignored us most of the time because they were saving the big surprise of a 30% tax at... More

The restaurant is very expensive- 150 Soles x 2 pers. - 50 $, in Perù it's unbelievable. The bill was 119 Soles, but the waiter tell us that the total was 150 soles, cause the tax are 31 Soles. No word !!! Don't go !!!

The location is good cause in front of the main square, the food so&so, the prices are really high (even if this is unfortunately normal in MachuPicchuPueblo), but the worst thing was that they tried to cheat us giving a wrong check overpriced because of taxes different to those written in the menù. We obviously complain about this, but the... More

We came here because it is in the main square and had a nice deck. As a Houstonian who loves Mexican, the sign that said "burritos" pulled us in. We ordered quesadillas, empanadas and nachos. Every single thing was subpar and gross. The food and drinks were over-priced and a 20% service charge was included without notice. Word to the... More

In Amaru i went for traditional peruvian meal - alpaka steak followed by black corn pudding. Both meals were really tasty- although i believe portion of alpaka should be more generous. Pudding was mouth melting ! Like all candies of the world in one cup ! To my surprise staff was quite communicative in English and also really sweet and... More

Worst restaurant experience. Terrible service, overpriced menu, disgusting food (do not order meat - they will serve it raw), hidden charges. Avoid at all cost.

Not wanting to get traveller's belly we tended not to eat 'street food' and opted for restaurants (although that's not a guarantee). The pizzas were tasty, not an abundance of toppings. The tables has glass tops and you could see where crubs had dropped down the sides and under the glass - best not to dwell on that when you're... More
