We had a great meal here and the service was excellent. Everything was delicious, the trout and the lamb chops were standouts. Very nice dining room, bar area and beautiful gardens.

CASH ONLY! From the outside you might consider walking by but as you open the door it is a beautiful courtyard. My husband and I went here for lunch. We sat inside because the tables are bigger but as soon as we ordered our drinks the power went out. They assurred us that we could still order food and came to the table with a candle. The power didn't come back until we were paying but it was not a problem. We started with a Pisco Sour and a Chicha passion fruit drink. I'm not a big fan of Chicha but if you are I would suggest ordering it. For a starter we split the minestrone soup in a red pesto sauce. It was delicious and full of great flavor and vegetables. My husband ordered the mix meat (chicken, beef, and alpaca) stir fry and I had the Shrimp in a yellow chile and orange sauce served with mashed potato muffin and avocado slices covered in panko. Both outstanding!

What an amazing dining experience. The food was out of this world. After dinner we watched the chefs prepare other dinners for other guest. Very impressive

Our cab driver took us to El Huacatay as we were looking for a good restaurant in Urubamba. He drove through hidden side streets and alleys to this peculiar storefront. Then he told us we could find him at the cab stand a block or so away when we were done. To our surprise we had a wonderful meal with great service. The prices were reasonable for fine dining. We began our meal with a bread and appetizer tray that had wonderful tapenades. Next we had trout that really did taste fresh-caught. The manager even loaned us an umbrella so we could walk around a bit after dinner. Go here and you won’t be disappointed.

Went here for dinner with my family in April. The restaurant is off a slightly dodgy looking street but don´t be alarmed it is lovely inside. The food was great, the lamb ribs with honey and mustard were a particular highlight as was the alpaca carpaccio. Price wise it was reasonable, starters and mains for 4 people with two bottles of wine was abour 440 soles - Not cheap but good value compared to similar other restaurants in the area
