Delicious food

Looks touristy but the trout with Andean herbs was delicious. Great service and a good selection of teas.

Cabanas is a good option if a) you want to stay close to the town's main square, and b) you have a lot of picky eaters dining with you, because the menu is quite expansive and has options ranging from alpaca dishes to pizza to chifa to crepes. Kid friendly. Food quality is pretty decent. Downside: super slow service. The... More

My spouse and I had dinner here after a recommendation from our tour operator. Decent selection and good prices right in the main square. Food was good although we played it safe with a chicken sandwich and pizza since we had a long tour day the next day. Service was relatively quick. However a toddler who apparently was related to...

We went here as chosen by our travel operator...we arrived at noon sometime place had a few tables occupied, glad we arrived early because the tour group started pouring in quickly as the tables got filled up...the set up is pretty nice...nuffet style, food was on ceramic pots which keep the flavors more concentrated and is quite common to cook...

From the outside this place looks like a typical small-town hole-in-the-wall joint, with very little to recommend it. Don't be deceived. The food is delicious and the staff is very friendly and the service is quick and efficient - a rarity in Peru. Set right on the main square with a neon sign, I suggest you go in, order from...

Better food in the market for a quarter of the price. Endless variety of fresh fruit and veg in the market but not available here. Fruit offered was canned peaches.

Was it by intent or carelessness or cluelessness that the pisco was left out of our pisco sours? And was the mis-addition of our bill in the restaurant's favor for the same reason? Those problems were remedied, but the poor service never improved. One dish would be brought out, then a second, and then the third of our party just... More

I saw the review in Tripadvisor for the trout. Um - Um good. Not so. They didn't have any! So if it is on the menu don't expect it will be there. I had the Alpaca instead and my wife the chicken. While the meal was tasty the meat / both the chicken and the Alpaca was pounded then grilled... More
