Wayra is in the grounds of the Sol Y Luna Lodge and Spa Hotel.
It consists of a restaurant, inside and outside show area and associated Paso Horse stables and ranch.
It was an easy walk down from the hotel, on well lit paths.
The appeal on two evenings was two different shows that were seen after the meals. It is a good idea to check before you come to see which shows are available on which evenings.
(There are also lunchtime Paso horse shows with meals, but we weren't around for those).
The first was an excellent circus show, with four performers, including acrobatics on a rope, juggling, rotating inside a giant hoop and much more.
The second show, on a later night was a short but also excellent display of precision riding on four Paso horses, with extremely skilled riders and equally skilled and schooled Paso horses.
The service in the restaurant was friendly and welcoming and you were not rushed if you were not quite finished your meal when the show started.
The menu in Wayra is relatively restricted. The food was good, rather than exciting.
So my overall rating is a balance of two excellent shows with two good meals, giving an average of very good.

This is upscale, a little pricy for some but very well done and absolutely good value for money.
Its a delightful stop midway in the Sacred Valley. The food is presented well, and the waiters just keep bringing tasty portions, a little of everything available from their brick ovens. Lunch is served on a beautiful patio with a fantastic view of the surrounding mountains. Meanwhile you are entertained with a lovely show of Peruvian Paso Fino horses. Its a great introduction to Peruvian culture, and a taste of the coastal music and dance. Especially nice if you're not going to stop in LIma long enough to see any of that. I highly recommend it.

Book a dinner at Wayra restaurant on the evenings of Wednesdays to Saturdays and enjoy a magnificent circus type show with four excellent performers. Dinner include an excellent meal and then the viewing of this fantastic and unique show which only happens in Urubamba and no other place in the whole of Peru. Do not miss it as you will enjoy the place, the show, the meal and the drinks.

We took dinner here on our second night at the Sol & Luna hotel - and were able to see a free display of local horsemanship! The food was just as good, even though we had to leave our starters for a while to watch the display - all were very tasty, well presented local recipes. Black quinoa soup was the star again!

I have been to this restaurant several times, and have eaten the Sacred Valley Lunch, a la carte Lunch and dinner, this place is just amazing, and has the perfect mix between great local food, entertainment and quality. During the week at lunch time you can find peruvian paso horse shoe with marinera dance, and at night a circus show, whether you travel with family,c ouple or alone this is the best option in the Urubamba area without any doubt.
