Great neighborhood eatery, that you can stop buy for a quick and hearty meal. The food is fresh and filling. Pretty good spot

Went for dinner, chicken was good, but giving one star less because for me personally the seasoning was a bit too salty, but probably matching most people's taste.

Some of us had better luck than others. Go for lomo saltado rather than pollo saltado. Take note,there are next to no vegetarian options. My daughter had a crepe for dinner and it sound and looked better than it tasted.

I've eaten here so many times since they opened I can't count. Originally a good alternative to Brasa Roja, but they have a more expanded menu. I bring travelers here because you can be more or less adventurous- pollo a la brasa is good, but...you can get anticuchos or cuy also. I've always found the staff friendly and helpful, and the food good.More

It was recommended by our hotel when we arrived Huaraz in evening. We had wonderful dinner here and came back a few days later. Excellent local food, mid-range price(inexpensive, though), and excellent service. The menu has English which is easier for us.

Had a delicious meal (pork with herbs and 1/4chicken brasa). Both delicious and cooked to perfection. Great service.

The chicken portions were ok (not more) but the bill was not as low as some of the reviews here. In fact, for Peru and Huaraz, the price is like many other tourist restaurants.

Lunch special is 10 soles ($3.07 on 3/17/18) which includes tax and tip! You get good service, a fresh juice, salad, soup, main course (several available) and light dessert. towards the end of the lunch time, the number of available offerings decreases. Clean restrooms and...fully stocked. We ate there twice and would have eaten there again, but it was closed on the Sunday we were there. You can order off of the menu but it won't be as reasonable. We will probably eat there again tomorrow for lunch, our last day in Huaraz.More

Chicken and beef cooked to perfection. Nice atmosphere and great service too! Couldn't fault the place. We left satisfied.
