This restaurant is one of the best in Puno for a casual meal. I was surprised at the low rating this restaurant has. The waitress informed me that the restaurant had recently changed ownership, and that under the new ownership, the restaurant has improved very much. The menu has something to please everyone, and has a wide variety to choose... More

I was looking for somewhere for lunch and the menu looked appealing. It's in a central location opposite La Casino. My meal was delicious. Better than the meal I had the night before in Incabar just down the road (which is much more positively reviewed)

Most of our group didn't received our drinks until well over half an hour after finishing our main courses. Most starters came after the main course. The pina colada was not a pina colada and didn't not resemble the picture remotely. One member of our group ordered a desert which was served cold. When asked to have it heated that... More

Walking along from the main square, a cool evening, we looked into the restaurant, saw the open oven for cooking pizzas, grabbed a table by the oven to keep us warm and had the most enjoyable pizza that we saw being cooked too! The staff were friendly and helpful, they even served a welcome cappuccino too - if you are... More

Good food, good service. Great pizza oven fireplace. Fun to watch people stroll by on the Main Street. Local musicians that came were good.

Good meals, good price. Delay serving food and they need more personnel in the restaurant. They told their VISA POS was not working - bad.

Although there was more stuff than customers, the waiters didn't bring us our drink (a shared inka cola). We had to ask for it once they served us the pizza. The waitress then arrived with one glass only. Slow and poor service. Food not so good. I wouldn't recommend it. Credit card worked okay.

Pizza good, although one then the other. However service and ambience dreadful. It lacked several items listed on the menu and the card machine didn't work.

We ate here with a tour group but paid our own bills. The food was very good and traditional Peruvian. The wait staff was excellent very helpful and attentive. Service was very good.

This main street restaurant looks good from the outside but looks can be deceiving. . We ordered two of their specials, Lamb fillet with jus reduction and creamy quinoa and the Inca Chicken and fries. There were only three other tables occupied, we still waited over 45 minutes for our food. The lamb was cold, not tepid, cold. The quinoa... More
