The restaurant was quite easy to find but at more than 11,000 feet the food is simply delicious. Try the baked guinea pig but the ceviche was outstanding as well. We had the chicken too but the meat was a little tough.

Had the trout and the cheesecake - both were excellent but the cheesecake in particular was just outstanding. Great place to get lunch.

I absolutely loved it. Although it did take a while but that was because the food is FRESH. One of the best meals I had on the trip. It showed they took pride in their dishes.

Very simple recipes but a nice range in this restaurant in the streets of Chinchero. The owner is kind and solicitous and the cooking is very good. I particularly remember the boiled potatoes - even a "plain" dish as this can be made unforgettable!
