We ate several times at Encuentro, just off Luzuriaga, in a quiet plaza with indoor and outdoor seating. We chose to go there because of the number of traditional Peruvian dishes on the menu (drew the line at cuy though!) All meals were excellent, particularly enjoyed the trout, chicharrones and the salads, service was good and our waitress very friendly (it seems to help around Huaraz if you have at least rudimentary Spanish and try to speak it). Prices reasonable.

My gilfirend and I thought it would be nice to have an expresso in this place. Yes that's true it's as expensive as it is in Europe (4 soles) but we're on holidays after all ! Well sure thing is it wasn't expresso at all ! It was just the worst coffee I ever had ! I wouldn't have been so pissed of if it wasn't that expensive.

Encuentro has several branches in town, the best one is in Parque del Periodista. They serve great Peruvian and international dishes, the beef lasagna is particularly delicious. I don't recommend to eat their pizza though (the pizza is far better at El Horno nextdoor). It isn't the cheapest place in town, but the food is worth it. The waiters could do with smiling more, but that is not uncommon in Huaraz.

Was not happy with the food. We ordered a Peruvian dish with a variety of meats and all were dry and tasteless. Tamale was decent and our salad was just fine.
