We were in 4 people having a complete menu and absolutely everything was delicious, specially the appetizers! Even the Pisco Sour was the best we had in the entire trip! Well done! Seriously, I ate better there than at famous restaurants in Lima. Well done! For real foodies.

Not much else really going in Urubamba, so I wasn't sure about the reviews for this place. They were spot on. This was a fantastic meal! Everything from the appetizers to the dessert was great. English speaking - no problem. Highly recommend.

Although mostly packed with tourists, was a great meal and quite authentic cooking. Compared to other options in Urubamba, its a bit pricey, but you wont find this quality of execution in most other restaurants.

Went here with two friends. The place looked beautiful when you walk in and we opted to sit inside at eat. Between three people, we had 5 dishes. Alpaca carpaccio was awesome. Mango and avocado salad was good too. The alpaca tenderloin was the best we had in Peru. Will go again!

El Huacatay is a lovely place, great tasty & healthy food, and the ambience we look for- cozy, clean, beautiful, relaxing, inviting. My wife and I are caring for 23 Ninos with no parents at a home in Urubamba, and wanted to treat our hard working volunteers to a special meal. We contacted the owners, and they invited us to...

We went as a family of 9 here and cannot fault the food: high-quality novo-andino fayre wonderfully presented and extremely tasty. Great menu choices and drinks to match. Cannot fault anything to do with the food. The service from our main waitress was excellent: she was attentive, friendly, and helpful to those who didn't speak Spanish in the group. Some... More
