Ate here this evening and we were genuinely impressed with this place. Potato based dishes with a selection of toppings. Unbelievable value, desert is tasty too. Best we have had in Peru. Safe option.

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Came here based on good reviews and was not disappointed. The gentleman saved a table for us when we arrived early and told him we'd be back in 15 minutes. We loved our lunch and got an extra topping of ratatouille. Good value, we definitely recommend this place. Good service and prices.

“Little size, BIG Taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Hatun means BIG Potato! It tries to incorporate potatoes in unique and innovative ways into arequipeño and peruvian traditional dishes.

I just came back from ordering their unique Rocoto Relleno and Queso stew and I think
my taste buds collapsed because of the richness in flavors and textures. Everything was spectacular and bursting with color.

For drinks I had the quemadito de maño on the rocks with a drizzle of Pisco! Super refreshing!
For dessert I had chuño zambito with grated coco. This dessert reminded me of arroz zambito BUT the texture of the chuño mini-chunks together with the cold sauce of the dessert which was made of cinammon, brown sugar and coconut milk when combined made my heart all types of happy.

The restaurant is small but its warm interiors and folkloric decoré make it resemble an Incan Jewelry Box. Every space is clean and colorful and insted of small chairs they offer long benches & long tables that easily fit parties of 4!

From the moment I entered this restaurant Cesar, Cecilia and alejandro made me feel welcomed and cared for. They provided me with exceptional tourist site recommendations, city maps, hotel delivery options, and helped me pick each dish with a lot of ease.

All I can say is that IF you want to eat HEALTHY, FRESH, & UNCONVENTIONAL food then HANTUPA is a MUST!

I had an appetizer, main dish, dessert and cocktail for $10 dollars! Save money, be happy, just GO.

“Yum yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

thanks to the great reviews on tripadvisor we decided to check out Hatunpa and glad we did.
It's a small informal place, the owner is great and the food was wonderful.
Very inexpensive. The sweet potatoes were awesome! We were two and decided to order regular sized plates plus three small dishes just to try some more items. Everything was great.
