Description: Welcome WE ARE HATUNPA and the potatoes are our passion. Our concept is a base of boiled potatoes, served "skin on" in slices, covered with the topping of your choice. We have hot and cold toppings; with beef, alpaca, chicken, tuna and vegetables choices; with Peruvian and international flavors. We hope you enjoy it !!

I thought we'd be eating a lot of potatoes in Peru, but we didn't get that many choices in a lot of the restaurants we ate in. Until Hatunpa! Great authentic experience with a wonderful host and menu options. Good vegetarian choices and we appreciated the low key atmosphere that felt local despite being in a heavily tourist-focused area. Certainly recommend for either a lighter mid-day snack or a full meal.

I have to be honest but I've never been much of a potato fan. However, Peru is the land of potato and with more than 100 kinds I was bound to taste a good one.
Hatunpa are the potato experts and they show you how to eat it with more than a dozen toppings.
This is a must try, it's close to Santa Catalina Monastery so after watching how luxuriously the nuns lived, there's no better way to get a little potato luxury in you.
This not only tastes good but is also very price conscious (approx 9-11 soles).
Owner is very nice and helpful.

What a fun place! They even provide a placemat game to keep you amused while you await your potato delicacy. ( hint: study up on your flags!). The place is tiny and you may have to wait, but you should! Our party of 4 tucked into our table after a brief wait, laughed over our game, enjoyed 4 different potato dishes, and left quite satisfied. Don't miss this!

Dear Mrs Marketmom
Thank You very much for your time in writing a review about Us.
It is nice to hear that you enjoyed very much our food and the time of waiting with our game.
It is fun to see how much people know about flags and even more fun is to check how this game joins the people in one point.
Thanks for your visit !!!

Stumbled past this restaurant whilst wondering round arequipa. I decided to try it because the place was very homely, and cosy. When the plate of food arrived it was very well presented and tasted delicious. The staff were very friendly. Don't miss this unique experience, definitely worth a visit.

The potatoes are just so fresh and organic that you feel the real flavor of Peruvian Potatoes, Best option to get a couple of drinks and good real organic food!!!! Server is so helpful so he can guide you through your order especially for foreigners who doesn't really know about peruvian cuisine.
