I had two fantastic dinners here, and recommend this restaurant highly. I started my first meal with a chica morada, a purple corn/lemon-aid like non-alcoholic drink that is wonderfully made here. Followed by a Urubamba style quinoa soup with vegetables and a quail's egg (to die for), my main was alpaca tenderloin with a port-wine thyme reduction (out of this world), and a frozen passion fruit cheesecake. One of the best meals that I have had in the last year....no kidding.

The next night I had the same chica morada, the soup again, and then tried a duet of steaks with two different sauces - port-wine and blue cheese. Again, excellent.

Please be advised that this is a cash only restaurant, no credit cards.

Great food. Really good I mean. Good service. You will not believe the sophistication of the kitchen exists in such a small town. A lot of ingredients locally sourced. Touch of Spain with Peruvian complexity of flavors. Trout was heavenly!

The food was great and the attention superb. Our waiter was from Spain and he was really nice and patient with the 3 little girls in our party of 4 adults 3 kids. After the kids finished eating, they went to the garden to play, it felt as if we were at someones home.
Loved it!

Excellent food! Great service! And the place is almost magical! The food is really something! De got there today and already made a reservation for tomorrow! Btw, you need to make a reservation! The place is not too big! If you're there don't forget to ask for the "Hierva Buena Sour" it's amazing!!
