We had local food for the dinner at this restaurant. The more important event was the high quality live folk dances performed with vivid dresses and masks. It was recorded music however and it did not contain much expected El Conder Pasa like music on panpipe. The performance lasted for almost two hours. It was worth seeing this cultural event... More

We had excellent grilled chicken at this local institution. Juicy and flavorful. The chicken is done in a wood-fired oven. Service if friendly and fast and the food is not expensive.

We originally wanted to go to Balcones de Puno, but they were full for the evening and we had not reserved ahead. They are popular because of the live music past 7:30 pm. So we were shuttled to this restaurant which was its 'sister restaurant' with live music as well. We were not disappointed by the food - it was... More

Ate here with a group of 13 people. Food was understandably slow- an hour wait. I think they put the show on so you are distracted by the enormous wait time for dinner. My entree came out wth my main, even though we mentioned twice it was an entree. Most people received their food and others did not. My food... More

This seems to be an institution in Puno. Specially if you are looking for local food with nice ambiance. Prices are very reasonable and lots of local come to eat or takeaway their half chicken

We went there for dinner based on the recommendation of our hotel. We ordered 1/4 chicken each and enjoyed the dinner at a low price of 11 Sol. each. Can't beat that price for a good dinner. The location is ideal.

We ate roasted chicken, very delicious, french potatoes, good, and purple corn refreshing water. The staff were kind and fast too. Just the place is small.

This restaurant has two parts. The seating area in front appears to be finer dining with a show. They take credit cards in this section. We visited the dining area in the rear. No credit cards accepted but the prices are very low. Two drinks and two quarter chicken dinners amounted to 28 sols - about $9US. Can't beat that!... More

Very busy restaurant, I think it would be best to book but they managed to fit myself and my friend in for dinner. There was a show with traditional Peruvian dancing and music and the food was really nice and fresh.

While the rotisseri chicken was excellent and very tasty with its various spices, it was a bit disconserting afterwards to encounter a baby mouse on the floor as I visited the restroom.
