“Disappointing Experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

This restaurant likely has better dishes, but the pizza was awful. A pre-made crust was made soggy as the result of incorrect cooking, although the cheese was good quality. The waitress/hostess was cold and uninviting, and ignored me by chatting with a friend as I waited for change (by that time I was quite ready to get out of the restaurant). The only redeeming quality of the establishment is it's location on the river, which gives it a pleasant ambiance. Still, I would not return.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

We enjoyed a soup and several noodle dishes. The setting by the river is also very nice. I'd definitely visit again.

“Fantastic place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

What a discovery! Great food, beautifully presented, just by the river with a view to the Inca ruins. What more can we ask for?

“Good food at a reasonable rate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

We had dinner at Orisha's at the suggestion of our hotel owner. Our meal was very good and the price reasonable. The service was the same as we experienced in other restaurants in town, not speedy but very pleasant and we were not in a hurry.

“After walking the Inca ruins this is a nice spot next to the river with good pasta and pizza.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We took a break from the tourista crowd and inca ruins and landed at Oristas Restaurant. We sat out on the patio and found it a nice break with the sound of water below. We took a break from Peruvian fare and tried the Italian food that is so prevalent in these parts. We were not disappointed. I'd recommend the pastas. One of our group did enjoy the Quinoa Sopa. Anyway, take a quiet break out away from the main squares hustle and bustle and enjoy!
