Time to spare this morning. I had a hamburger that was just so,so. It was a lovely location, with Internet and a friendly staff. Great spot to people watch

This place caught our attention while we were at another restaurant waiting for our food and we thought "darn! why didn't we see it earlier!" -- so we decided to come have a snack here. This place was OK - I gave the 3 stars because the coffee was good. I asked for cream to put in my coffee which... More

There are SO many restaurants in Aguas Callientes & after spending a while wandering around & reading menus we decided that this one was the best of the lot! The menu was large & comprised local specialities with pasta & pizza. We all chose the local trout, which was served in many different ways, & we went for plain grilled.... More

We should have returned every plate on the table, ordered avocado salad (saggy and blend), jocopa (returned it), Chupe de Trucha (trout soup)...really disgusting! Owner was there and didn't even apologize for the poor quality and service. OVERPRICED as hell! (usd 60 per person) Make no mistake about that the restaurant doesn't expect the returning customer, the goal is to... More

Very nice, well meaning, non-English speaking staff. Staff went of of their way but food was average. Nice river views.

This is on a very busy street, with numerous restaurants. Menu placed outside and very attentive staff who were not at all pushy. We got a nice window seat and enjoyed a super ceviche. Wine was reasonably priced by the glass, as was the food overall. Recommended!

The food was good. Tourist prices are charged, and so quite expensive for Peru. Limited staff, and so service was liable to delay.

Pizzas are just pasta (which is ok) and cheese.... Not what I call a pizza... Chicano was well loaded though. Just make real pizzas and the place will be nice

After wondering around for a restaurant in Aguas Calientes we finally found a place that had their clay oven going. We figured a pizza would be perfect. We were able to choose what toppings we wanted and the pizzas turned out pretty good. Price was reasonable and service was alright. It's right along the train tracks and had nice seating... More
