“Good for a small, basic meal”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is a good place to go if you're interested in a small meal that might best be described as comfort food. You get a plate of boiled potatoes and can choose the type of sauce that gets poured on top. All very tasty. This is a place to go for lunch or a very early dinner--we were on the late side, and the owner was so eager to close, he didn't even ask if we wanted dessert (and we would have said yes!).

“Lovely food, great service”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This small restaurant serves simple but delicious food. Potatoes with the topping of your choice. I had the Tuna and it was yummy. The owner is very friendly and the service is great.

“Boiled Potatoes With a Tasty Sauce/Topping in a Tiny Space”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

This is an example of when one has to question the veracity of the reviews as well as TripAdvisor's algorithms. Seriously, when did boiled potatoes in a 16 seat restaurant start meriting a 5?

An incredibly tiny, efficient and clever restaurant in a white sillar/colonial space, located near the Monasterio Santa Catalina, they serve boiled potatoes with a tasty sauce for about S/.10.

To their credit, they've kept it simple in the minuscule space, *only* serving sliced/boiled potatoes on a plate with a choice of perhaps a dozen different sauces/toppings that are typically Peruvian: Rocoto Relleno, Aji de Gallina, etc. We shared three different sauces/toppings and all of them were good, but IMHO the Aji de Gallina was best.

The AMAZING poached cinnamon pear was an extraordinary and unforgettable surprise after the OK potatoes. I'm going back just for that. Really.

Other than the loud TV, I have nothing negative to share.

“Creative, good food and service”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We ate at this small restaurant one time during our 5 day stay in Arequipa but had it been open on Sundays, we would have eaten there a second time.

The food is creative....how many things can you do with potatoes .....obviously a lot. The portions were generous and the food was nicely presented. The service was good and the owner was very friendly.

“Great service!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

The owner gave great service. Very attentive. The restaurant was homey and well laid out which made for a comfortable experience. The food is good value at about 10 sol per plate. Everything is professionally prepared. The food, although good, wasn't exceptional. That's the only thing that kept me from giving five stars. Definitely recommended if you're looking for something quick and filling.
