I recently adventured with my parents and a few of their friends when they came to visit in Peru (where I live), and El Huacatay is an absolute must if you're spending any amount of time in Urubamba, in the Sacred Valley! It's very well-hidden...More

Tiny little place down a tiny little street in little Urubamba in the Sacred Valley. Literally four star food. Presentation was tremendously unexpected. Tastes were divine. Excellent, diverse menu. Very good for vegetarians and meat lovers. No English but no issue. Food transcends language :)...More

Our tour guide reccomended this restaurant for lunch after our morning activities - we ate in the garden. The food was excellent - two of my children had the alpaca lasagne and I had the local gnocchi - all of which was delicious. Highly enjoyable.

We were seated outdoors at a low table, but our dinner was quite lovely. The menu had a nice blend of Peruvian and international food...or Peruvian twists on international dishes. For example, I had sweet potato ravioli. Delicious!
