The restaurant is quaint and the food is delicious! I would have given it 5* if the restaurant hadn't overcharged us on wine (half of which they spilled on me).

A beautiful restaurant in a very local area. Ricotta croquette was amazing. One of my favorite Peruvian dishes so far. The waiters loved to talk to us. Very warm and friendly. True Peruvian feel.

The food was excellent, specially the main dishes or fondos. Variety in the menu and flavors. Desert was good but not as tasty as main dishes. A restaurant you must visit while staying in Urubamaba.

We showed up without a reservation and a party of 9 and they were nice enough to accommodate us. I would recommend making reservations if you can. The staff was very nice and so was the food. I would definitely recommend this place.

We were staying at nearby Tambo del Inka Hotel and our tour guide recommended the restaurant. Having been to famous Astrid y Gaston in Lima a few days prior, our dinner at Huacatay far exceeded it. Creative dishes very well presented. Don't be fooled by...More

So sorry I didn't respond. Haven't been on this site since reviewing. I couldn't help, however, since we were with a guide. Hope you found it and enjoyed.
