“Good place to eat, we went there 3 or 4 times.”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Our group voted this the best place to eat in Huaraz :-)
I liked the quality of food better at lunchtime (1-4pm), as there are less people, so the cook is doing a better job.
Note, they under-cook meat, if you like your stakes rare ask for medium, etc. I tried the guinea pig (cuy) there twice - it was excellent at lunch and not so good at dinner...

“Excellent local dishes at a reasonable price”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

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.

“The worst coffee ever !”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

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.

“Tasty Peruvian and International Food”
Reviewed October 30, 2011

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.

“Maybe it was what we ordered?”
Reviewed May 19, 2011

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.
