Great private location 200m into the woods off the main "street" near the top of the mountain. Don't forget to bring a flashlight as after dinner there are no lights when walking back through the woods. Pizza was mediocre: little sauce and an excessive amount...More

I was hiking around the upper hills of the island (south side) and saw signs pointing towards organically prepared food. Like a kid on a scavenger hunt, I was intrigued by the mystery and wanted to follow this rainbow until the end to see if...More

Beautiful setting, cosy and warm with sunset view. I ordered the lasagna, and settled down to write my diary..haven’t had such a great pasta dish since leaving England 14 months ago. So full of flavour, just go!!!

Basically, you will find no signs or indications on where this restaurant is located, once you arrive at Isla del Sol. My tip is: keep hiking, don’t give up - it is located at the top of the island, and that’s what make it special:...More

Visitors recommend catching the sunset here. There were too many clouds to see one properly. Instead we caught thunder and lightning over the lake...and it was still amazing to see. First come, first serve. It's a cozy little restaurant with no electricity. You eat by...More

What a superb little restaurant this is. A simple setting with truly amazing food and a wonderful host. The restaurant overlooks lake titicaca to the west so you can watch the stunning sun set from either inside or outside the restaurant. There is no electricity...More

Food is well worth the wait, yes it takes a while but there are only two members of staff cooking everything in candle light. The atmosphere is really cool and you get talking to people around you. Initially the owner seemed off with us but...More
