After running around in a rain for over 2 hours we finally found Urubamba’s only Peruvian Restaurant. Great service, fair/low prices, delicious food. Grilled trout appetizer was amazing! Highly recommend!

El Huacatay is one of the best places to have dinner in Urubamba. They have traditional Peruvian dishes and a beautiful garden where you can eat. The prices are a bit higher than other restaurants but it's worth it.

We had a great meal here last night. The gnocchi was rich, plentiful in a stew type bowl with veggies and chicken. The trout my husband had was tasty and again loads of it! We’d go back tonight if it wasn’t closed :-( Good value,...More

Dinner after a long day. Located in a strange area you need to trust the place. Once inside though the service is great and the food excellent. Wonderful options and fun atmosphere
