“Friendly atmosphere and great pizza and calzone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed our meal here. The staff were very friendly and all seemed happy which made for a pleasant atmosphere. Waitress let us know the calzone would take a bit longer than normal pizza to prepare which we appreciated and gave us a book on puno to flick through while we waited. Food tasted great when it arrived.

“Very good lunch with great service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

My daughter and I were in a hurry in that we had about a hour for lunch. We went to Ekekos Restaurant Pizza and explained that we had to get in and out in a hurry. They said no problem and delivered our King fish and Guinea Pig on schedule. The fish was cooked perfect as was the Guinea. Reccomend the place. Beautiful and rustic inside. Check out the light fixtures.

“Terrible service - don't come here for lunch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Don't know what was going on the day we came here. We wondered in at the pretty reasonable time of 1.30 looking for lunch. Sat down and ordered lasagna, the waitress told us it would be about 40 minutes since they had to warm up the oven (you don't have the oven on when you're offering lunch and it's already 1.30..?), we said this wasn't a problem and we were happy to wait, we ordered some chips to tide us over.

So about an hour later when NO food had turned up and we'd asked TWICE about the chips the lasagnas finally turn up stone cold on the inside. The waitress said she'd put them back in and went to the kitchen a THIRD time to ask about the chips and our friend's meal which was only a sandwich option. The chips came and were cold, we'd ordered two portions and only one turned up. The fourth time we asked about the chips the waitress had to go back to the kitchen and stand there while they made them. We were sat close to the kitchen window so could hear this farce going on. They kept the window shut and the dirty dishes from all the other tables piled up on the cruise counter right next to us. Piles of dirty dishes. Nice.

Were they stoned?
Were they drunk?
Had everyone in the kitchen died?

Impossible to say. Don't come here for lunch. Maybe in the evenings when it's busier you've got a better chance of any hot food turning up before an hour and a half.

“Good Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We had cuy, which was good ( a little bit boney, just like eating frog but the meat is very tender and soft). The pizza was very good too. We think the food in general is very good but we don't know why they're not busy.

“yummy alpaca!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Please don't miss out on this great restaurant, just because it is not number 1 - it has exactly the same delicious food and fantastic service, price wise about the same as No1 in Puno. Pizza fresh out of the oven - you can watch while they make it.
Most delicious treats: alpaca in red-wine or chicken in beer! (both at 25soles). good big portions.
Were rolled out of there with full stomaches! Yummy!
ps. you don't need a reservation for this - if unlucky maybe wait a few moments, or if you don't mind sharing a table with other travellers - just join in!
