I coveted the empanadas at Mamá Wasi through the window for several days before having time to stop in for lunch with a colleague. We shared chicken and beef empanadas, and a tamale. All were very tasty and authentic! Served with a spicy sauce and sautéed diced onions on the side. The empanada crust had just the right lovely golden... More

The name didn't remind me Peru, but when I entered this cozy restaurant I wanted to taste everything. The food is very good. The owner is very nice and very helpful describing the ingredients of each dish.

My girlfriend and me ate there already two times since my recent move to Geneva. We discovered this lovely place by chance, and we do not regret it. We did not know Peruvian food before, however Mama Wasi manages to deliver great empanadas! You can choose between different fillings and the card also offers other traditional Peruvian dishes. We noticed... More

Here's a picture of my cod-fish Ceviche and Causa accompanied by a Pisco. Empanadas and Mega-empanadas were on display too but for those with time, enjoy the real deal in the pic!

One of my favorite places, especially on a grey day. It is like a little slice of Latin America served as fresh as the ceviche. Nice chilled atmosphere not least due to the very pleasant owner who is friendly and talkative without being intrusive.

Friendly atmosphere in this cosy place and with the nice owner. The food is simple but authentic, I particularly like empanadas and tamal and about the drink I suggest chicha morada or the surprising cuzquena dark beer.

This place serves delicious food... We had the rice and chicken and a special rice... We didn't know what to expect so we asked what they recommended and it was yummy.. The dessert was a pudding with cream and milk... Whatever you have it will be superb!
