“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

The restuarant was small and had a great atmosphere. It is a 10 minute walk from the Westin. the food was very good and reasonable. It is in a small house and worth venturing away from the hotel.

“Unbelievable!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

You wouldn't expect a place like that in Urubamba: stylish,clean,great service and interesting delicious food.(I would expect a restaurant like that somewhere in Monterey/Pacific Grove,in California). The owner,Irene, greeted us and helped choose drinks and food.Their pisco sour with some mint twist was the best tor 12 days traveling around the country. All food:fish,alpaka,beef - were excellent.
Make sure to make a reservation: the place is small and very popular.
Must visit when in Sacred Valley.

“Great spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Really enjoyed this family run restaurant. Skip eating at the Tambo del Inka if you are staying there (or at another Urubamba hotel) and give some of the local places a try. The loma de Llama was excellent.

“Wonderful place to eat in Urubamba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

The food and atmosphere was amazing. It's almost hidden and is located just off the main street. We literally had to almost run into the door before we saw the place. We highly recommend this restaurant.
