This was my home restaurant for five days. Great selection of tasty dishes - trout, alpaca, salmon, cuy (Guinea pig). Tasty free salad bar, efficient friendly service, pleasant atmosphere. Place popular both with the locals and tourists.

Great place on second floor, just up a side street off the Plaza Square. The place was packed as it was Valentines Day. A great atmosphere with excellent food and great service.
