My husband and I came to Cajamarca for the weekend. Taxi driver from airport to town recommended this restaurant as “the best” in town. It was totally not what we expected. Seems like this place have been here for decades, not a fancy place. Food...More

I've been there everyday for breakfast and for lunch. The staff is very kind and always happy. The food is really good and high quality. Their salads are delicious and clean. "Humitas" are the best. The place is clean and not so crowded.

My husband and I would definitely go there for their "mates o infusiones" (herbal teas). It's the real thing not in tea bags. Made from scratch with herbs. You have plenty of choices. We tried the coca and the mix. Prices are reasonable, convenient location...More

Not quite sure why this restaurant is so highly recommended. Although the service was excellent, the ribs I had were fatty, chewy and tough. My wife enjoyed her trout for the most part, but overall neither of us would recommend it.

Make yourself a favor and don't come. I asked for al pesto pasta and 30 minutes later they brought a green pasta soup. I asked to take it away and they refused saying they will fix it. Later they brought a green pasta that tasted...More
