Tourist trap - beware of the tax!!!

The food was ok and location is great. However, when we asked for the check, the waiter came with a calculator and showed us some random total price, which was definitely more than what it should have been. When we asked for the written down check, he went to write stuff down quickly, which was... read more

Food was alright, but before my wife and I went in we ask about their burrito, they said it was a large portion, it's a lie, what we received was a cheap and small burrito's not enough for an adult to get full. Del Taco and Taco Bell has bigger Burrito's in the States. But worst of all they will... More

This place has a great terrace overlooking the square which we thought would be a great way to enjoy dinner. During dinner we overheard the table next to us telling the waiter it was unheard of, and unfair, to charge 25% tax on their bill. Luckily there was free WiFi (and it was a decent connection to be honest) so... More

Nice location, poor service, high prices and a guinness world record for a 2mm high burger. Additional charges for service as a surprise in the bill.

The view of the square is lovely. The beer is cold, but the place is run down and looking at the other reviews on here I am glad I avoided the food. Stop for a beer certainly.

Similar to other reviewers on trip advisor we made the mistake of coming in here before reading previous trip advisor reviews. The best tactic if you find yourself in this position- firstly question the 10 soles added to your 40 soles bill. They say "ok 44 soles" without much complaint as they mumble something incoherently about local tax. Then show... More

Was told by the girl at the door "best food in the world" LOL...More like the worst. Beware the 20-30% service charge they add on. Terrible food, and check the bill before paying as ours was overcharged by a random S./ 55. Definitely would not revisit.

This was the worst restaurant during my visit in Peru. The service was terrible, very arrogant people. The food was also very bad and my ceviche had Salmonella. I recommend to all the readers not to eat in this place during your visit in Aguas Calientes.

Food was poor, as was the service. Also, beware the attempted 25% service charge on the bill,which we queried. When challenged, they showed us that it stated 10% in tiny letters on the back cover of the menu (who looks there?!). They grudgingly accepted 10% in the end, but not with good grace, and that was way more than they... More

We were attracted to it by its outside decor. Big mistake for not checking with tripadvisor first! We were presented a bill with a 33% " tax and service". We asked why because tourist dont have to pay tax in Peru. They lowered the tax to 20% and said it is a local service charge and it is same for... More
