My boyfriend and I arrived in Urubamba to check out our new friends’ hotel. It was our first time in the city so we started exploring. We asked the lady at Seminario for a recommendation and she suggested El Huacatay. We didn’t have data and...More

I though the food at El Huacatay was among the best we had when visiting small, locally owned restaurants near Urumbamba, and the setting with a small outdoor garden is lovely. However, the wait staff seemed confused and disorganized, bringing incorrect dishes and forgetting wine....More

Have been here many times. Service is great . Selection is great. Size of the servings has diminished considerably. For the first time I left feeling hungry. My main course was pretty to look at but very little on the plate.

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 underdressed with the restaurant. The food was just ok. The feeling was the stereotypical city people changing the indigenous foods and trying to hard to make this gourmet, losing its spirit. The space is quaint and unsuspecting. The service was prompt. They surcharged our...More

El Huacatay is probably most special food you can try if you are looking for local values, slow food concepts, authors' kitchen and respect for organic incredible ingredients prepared with high sophistication and originality. Once you will try the ingredients you will realize you0ve never...More
