“When in Nazca, Eat Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Happy to come across this place after a long day of travel. The stuffed chicken breast in a sweet berry sauce was so delicious. Reasonably priced for great food. The service was fine, not exceptional, but our server was friendly and attentive enough. Nazca is a smaller town compared to Arequipa and Cusco, and I think this restaurant is a great choice for a nice night out. Weird music choice though, an eclectic mix of so-so American music from the 70's and 80's, that would be the only thing I'd change.

The dishes were delicious and nicely presented. Service was also prompt and friendly. Menu offered a variety of local and international choices and the prices were very reasonable. We were so pleased that we made a return visit.

“Clean and very helpful.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Four of us had lunch here. Food was OK, prices for tourists but not overly expensive. Waitress was very good in that she explained the menu, was accurate and efficient. Management called a taxi for us and haggled on our behalf for the best price when it came.

“Great selection, takes credit cards. Good vegetarian options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This restaurant has a large selection of dishes, ranging from Peruvian to Italian. I highly recommend the mixed salad for a starter, which is fresh avocado, cucumber, tomato, beans, and peas (for about 7 soles, or $2.50). The waitstaff are very courteous and will be helpful if you would like to share plates.

Note that despite the Mastercard napkin holders, they seemed to only accept visa when I went.

Overall, recommended.
