We thought it was a good option since this restaurant is in the 2016 lonely planet guide but it was the worst meal we had in Puno. Greasy and untasty food. If you wanna avoid a bad moment don't go there.

We had lunch here, and while the food was uninspiring at best, the service was the worst I've had at a restaurant in decades. Given a late flight, and the drive to Puno, we came to Ukuku's for a late lunch, but they assured us it was fine. We ordered an appetizer, two pizzas, and drinks all around. Our waters... More

Worst meal in Peru so far. Avoid . Alpaca was greasy and really full of oil. Cow steak was fried when menu said clearly grilled. Deserts were terrible . Wine really sucked. Avoid it

We had higher expectations given guidebook recommendations. The food was OK, not great. Perhaps it is popular because the prices are marginally lower than restaurants on the main drag. The service is very slow, but that's not uncommon. Suggest they serve the guacamole with more than a piece of sliced wonder bread.

We had the menu with the alpaca options. The Alpaca was very tasty, and also the starter soup was worth the price. We found this place as value for money, and would recommend you to try one of the alpaca steaks. The pisco sour was also good.

A group of four of us had the lunch special. The spaghetti was tasteless and the sauce was bland. The filet of beef was tough. The soup was outstanding. The service was extremely slow, and I ordered cream of mushroom soup, and the waiter brought me cream of asparagus soup.

Traditional choices on the menu, un-inflated prices, friendly if slightly harassed staff. A good crowd in the night we went.

But first day when I arrived try to have dinner here ended eat at Lago de Flores -which just opposite this restaurant. I had 2 meals at Lago de Flores and once at ukuku's. Compared these 2. I personally prefer Lago de Flores - their services and food are better. Ukuku's tourist menu 18 to 25 soles.

I had pizza which took a long long time. It was cooked in a wood oven. It was ok. The decor is a old and sad and they need to spruce things up, though they have an impressive collection of cigarette boxes framed on the walls. The lighting is dingy. The service is utterly indifferent. I think they have just... More

We went to this restaurant as a recommendation from our hotel. It was the worst service I have EVER had. We sat down and ordered right away. After us 7 or 8 other tables sat and ordered. Every single one of those tables got their food and finished it before we even got ours. If you aren't a local don't... More
