Don't get the veggie burger

Reading in Lonely Planet that Yanapay offers a full vegetarian menu, my mom and I decided to go here. She got a veggie burger, which turned out to just be grilled zucchini, onions, and bell peppers sandwiched between bread slices. I got a pizza and was much more satisfied. The place seems a bit... read more

Once in Cusco, visit this beautiful treasure!!! Super cosy atmosphere, delicious food, friendly staff, moderate prices and as part of Aldea Yanapay project, you support kids with your money. Every day, every time we buy something, we make choises. Isn't it beautiful to have a gorgeous vegan lunch, be cruelty free and same time support a good cause? Thank you... More

I visited mid afternoon for a snack so only ate the fruit salad. The waitress was extremely surly, close to down right rude. The food was very average and came with something that looked like honey but turned out to be warm, and when poured on the fruit salad became hard as a rock so impossible to eat. The music... More

For the prices we expected a little more into the meals then we received. Meat over cooked. Veggie lasagne was more like died veggies with cheese on top. Very disappointing.

We were looking for a vegetarian restaurant in the center of Cusco and we walked through the streets trying to find one. When we read the menu and what it cost we realized that it would be the perfect place for lunch. We were very happy that we chose this restaurant. A vegetarian buffet with lots of Peruvian dishes and... More

We went on two occasions. Very casual and kid friendly restaurant. On the fist day we ordered "a la carte" and on the second we had the buffer. We loved the food and the price.

the social project behind it could be nice, but it is the worst pisco and food I tasted in Perú. Come with your kids to see the place but don t eat and have only a bottled drink. This place shouldn't be in a restaurant guide and surely not with this ranking. People that give good critics must have been... More
