This restaurant was recommended by some locals and then we saw the reviews in tripadvisor. We really enjoyed the food in here. I had the saltado mixto and my husband had the gnocchi and they were both great but the best without a question was the appetizer; we had the alpaca carpaccio and it was really really good. The service and the drinks are also great. Just go prepared because the place is cash only.

We had a fantastic dinner in this lovely small restaurant. The food was really well prepared. We had the alpaca entre and the gnocchi. Really, really delicious.

I had the shrimp and potato soup and it did not taste like anything. It was small for $14 USD and I could have gotten an entire meal for the same price at a better restaurant. The waiter took a long time to bring salt and by that time, the soup was cold. They could do better here with the service and food for that price. It was the most expensive restaurant in Urubamba and not the best food. I got the soup because had taken 50 soles with me thinking that would have been enough to eat dinner, but I only had enough for soup and tea.

This little restaurant is tucked away in the town of Urubamba and we found it to be very romantic and innovative and delicious! We ate here twice (lunch and dinner) and has a nice vibe for both (lunch is nice to eat out on the patio) and dinner was romantic inside. Both times we were very happy with our choices and thought it was very unique and delicious!

This tiny restaurant (about 6 tables inside and a couple outside) is well worth the visit. We loved the food, it was a very intimate setting and the wait staff was friendly and competent. The food was excellent and the wine list was very good and not too expensive. The food isn't inexpensive but was significantly less so than our hotel so all things being equal this was a much better experience than dining at our hotel. Call ahead for a reservation and to make sure that they are open (they were closed on Sunday during our visit).
