This restaurant was recommended by our hotel but what we were not told is that one needs reservations as their dining room is limited. Fortunately, they offered us a table in their lounge where we watched the dining room go from empty to full quite quickly.

Cocktails: Tasty pisco sours
Ambiance: Warm and inviting
Food: Fresh and inventive. Nicely presented and good portions. trout ceviche delicious and chicken in an apple deduction tasty
Service: Nothing extraordinary nor anything terrible
Pricing: Appropriate given ingredients...
Overall: Probably the best restaurant option in the Sacred Valley. Definitely one of my better meals while in the Cusco area. Would go again.

In the middle of non-descript Urubamba is a gem of a place. If you find yourself in the Sacred Valley near meal time, this is probably the best option. Wonderful salad, great lomo saltado.

Very good dining experience. Great food. Inventive and flavorful. Appropriately priced. Service slow but good. Fun mix of Peruvian items in modern cooking.

The place itself is very cute. The food was OK, but very well presented. Pisco sour was awesome! Our first and best in Peru.

Make sure you pay with Peruvian Soles because their USD exchange is terrible. And if you still want to pay with dollars make sure the notes are new (they won't accept even slightly damaged ones).

Everything was so tasty! I wish we could eat here again, but we are leaving in the morning.
