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

Nice little restaurant on the Plaza de Armas - open in the evenings. It has a heater also (really adds to the comfort). The food was great - I had the chicken with mozerella cheese - delicious along with the rice, fries, rocoto salsa and fresh garlic bread. My husband had the cream of mushroom soup, and fried trout. He... More

Delighted to be able to leave the first review for this place, as I made notes during the long wait for our food! It is on one side of the main square, and unlike many Chivay restaurants is open in the evening. Some tables have good views of the square. Went here as a family of 4, and all chose... More
