I'm not even a vegetarian and I enjoy this restaurant tremendously. The set menu of the day is great and cheap. Lentil burgers are awesome and salad bar is fresh. This place is a top spot in Cusco.

A somewhat hidden gem in Cusco, one block north from the plaza de Armas on Calle Tigre. on the Menu del dia, you get salad, soup, a choice of two main dishes a bread roll and a drink. This is all vegetarian and super delicious. the staff is friendly and helpful. for an additional s/2 have one of their handmade chocolates on the way out mmmmm yummy. when crowded, share a table with strangers and enjoy the conversation.

Came across this resturant by chance, and what a find! Does not look the most inviting from outside, but do go in. Extensive veggie menu, daily specials are very popular and great value for money, but nothing is expensive compared to UK prices. Had guacamole which was excellent. Rest in the group had soya based mains which they raved about. Portions are large. Would definitely recommend this.

The best vegetarian food in Cusco. I had vegetarian hamburger, tomato soup and coca tea. Everything was delicious! My hamburger was only 11 soles (that's like only $3!). This restaurant is pretty small, only seven tables. A lot of local people eat here, they buy "meal packages". When this place is fully pack you might end up sitting next to someone that you don't even know. El Encuentro has great food and you don't have to be vegetarian to enjoy it.
