We should have returned every plate on the table, ordered avocado salad (saggy and blend), jocopa (returned it), Chupe de Trucha (trout soup)...really disgusting! Owner was there and didn't even apologize for the poor quality and service. OVERPRICED as hell! (usd 60 per person) Make no mistake about that the restaurant doesn't expect the returning customer, the goal is to... More

Very nice, well meaning, non-English speaking staff. Staff went of of their way but food was average. Nice river views.

This is on a very busy street, with numerous restaurants. Menu placed outside and very attentive staff who were not at all pushy. We got a nice window seat and enjoyed a super ceviche. Wine was reasonably priced by the glass, as was the food overall. Recommended!

The food was good. Tourist prices are charged, and so quite expensive for Peru. Limited staff, and so service was liable to delay.

Pizzas are just pasta (which is ok) and cheese.... Not what I call a pizza... Chicano was well loaded though. Just make real pizzas and the place will be nice

After wondering around for a restaurant in Aguas Calientes we finally found a place that had their clay oven going. We figured a pizza would be perfect. We were able to choose what toppings we wanted and the pizzas turned out pretty good. Price was reasonable and service was alright. It's right along the train tracks and had nice seating... More

We had a better experience than many others, from looking at the reviews. It wasn't busy when we were there, rainy season. My grilled trout was very good & my daughter liked her pepperoni pizza. Our service was also good. There are a couple of tables with great river views.

My Trek group stopped here for a quikc lunch while waiting for our ride out of town. Good selection of both local and western influenced dishes with big portions and semi-tourist prices Coveniently located on the main street with some local band that plays on the other side so it was quite festive. Service and speed were average

The food is good everywhere but more expensive then elsewhere in Peru. Depending on the number of tourists around, many of the restaurants will have someone outside trying to entice you in to their establishment. If you can get two of them together then they will try to out bid each other by offering you a better deal than their... More
