I ordered a beefsteak a lo pobre - steak, egg, rice and fries - and the restaurant managed to make this simple dish my worst meal in Peru. We were one of two couples in the restaurant and our waitress would rather sit and people watch than check on our food, which arrived cooled. The steak was butterflied, and tough... More

Separate vegetarian menu if you are looking for veggie food. My avocado salad was good and the rice with veggies was OK. Not bad, but good vegetarian options

We went here to have a small bite waiting on our train. We ordered two pizzas. It took a while for them to get out. The smell was suspicious. We took one bite out of both and that was it. Never tasted a pizza with such a bad taste. The worst we ever had. The only thing good in the... More

We stopped there for something to eat while we waited for our train. Although the food was fine and the service was good, it was definitely too expensive for what you get. But I understood that going in, knowing that most of the places in this area are going to take advantage of tourists. Anyway the lady who served us... More

We ordered pizza and salad, both of which were below average. The chicha morada was awful. The only good part of our meal was the free Pisco Sours we were offered.

This restaurant was just around the corner from our hotel and looked so inviting. We speak a little spanish and the staff helped us with the type of food and what to order. We shared entree's and loved everything served. I had a Pisco Sour which is a national favorite. The altitude does make alcohol seem stronger.
