We live part-time in the area, but just tried Ananau for the first time today after noticing it on one of Yucay's pretty plazas as we rode by. While this area has lots of restaurants aimed at tourists, Ananau stands out from the crowd with a beautiful setting and very original menu. The cafe is very nicely furnished, and enjoys a beautiful view of a very colorful and well-tended garden. The service is firendly, informative, and very professional. We're taking Peruvian friends back there tomorrow for a birthday celebration.

A little hard to find but well worth the effort. We were made to feel very welcome. The owner took the time to explain the dishes and even went to get a lemon lime from her own tree in the garden

Unexpected oasis in a rather ordinary town in Sacred Valley. Tranquil garden setting, outlook from timber and glass cafe across garden. Staff happy to explain meals, flavours subtle yet interesting to the palate. Found cafe by chance, when walking down street. Poor signage, located about 150 mts down from Sonesta Posada Del Inka (hotel/resort). Waiter, Dante, excellent English, very good communicator. Prices very reasonable soup approx. $8, mains from $15.

Located behind the Plaza de Armas in the town of Yucay, I was surprised to find an upscale, discreet and inviting restaurant. Apart from great service and a warm and welcoming enviroment, they offer a varied menu of mostly local dishes and delicious homemade desserts. On my first visit I had a great pizza made in their wood burning oven that I highly recommend to any pizza lover. On my second visit I tried their flagship dish which is the Solomillo A Las Tres Pimientas. It consisted of a perfectly cooked beef tenderloin on three pepper sauce, accompanied by mushroom and zucchini risotto. It was one of the better plates that I tried on my entire visit to Peru. Anyone who is staying in the Yucay-Urubamba area and is looking for great food and service with just the right touch of class should go to Añañau. An A-plus in my book.

If you are into gourmet type dining experiences this is for you!
The servings are not large but adequate for most appetites. The lomo saltaldo was truly outstanding. The dessert was a mango custard. The service was exceptional.
