The food was good and plates were around 20soles. Portions were large. Picnic style tables busy with locals drinking and having a good time. If you are like me and enjoy avoiding the touristy spots this is a must.

If you want a place that's not touristy, this is the spot. Lovely local place with excellent, very large dishes. Best to share your meal with one other person. Had the cuy and it was excellent. The chicha fruta is also very popular.

In times where all restaurants serve "gourmet" style (ie fancy presentation and small portions, fusion with other cusine) it is really refreshing to find this restaurant or "picanteria" where locals still go and eat as at home. the flavors are great, portions are generous (...More
The place is a tipical"picanteria"..means simple wood floor,tables and ambient , but the food is to die for!! We had all kinds of local specialties like fried udder , tongue and cuy and all without exception was great!
For 20 soles you get a massive portion of food. We tried the ribs and roast pork, and the mountain of meat, potatoes and salad was almost too much to finish. It is authentic food, and the restaurant reflects that. We were the only tourists...More
