Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing food and beautifully presented! Definitely one of our favourite lunches during our 5 week vacation in Ecuador and Peru.

Stopped by after the visit to Chinchero Ruins for lunch and were not at all disappointed. Great food in a nice setting. Our group had Trout cebiche, Andean grain salad and lomo saltado made from Alpaca. There are not many options in the area, so...this one stands on another level.More

This restaurant is a must stop for anyone visiting the Chinchero historical site. The food is phenomenal and reasonably priced. The empanadas were some of the best we’d eaten in South America. The service was great as well. Can’t wait to return!

What an amazing find!! We stopped by for a late lunch, and really enjoyed everything we ate. I strongly recommend trying the empanadas, soups, and natural juices. Everyone from the staff was very extremely attentive..

I ordered the sweet potato ravioli. They must have run out of ingredients as only one ravioli parcel had any filling - the others were completely empty and flat. It would have been much better to have been told they couldn't make it - I...would have ordered something else and not wasted my money.More

After having done an exhausting Inca trail, we took another tour of the Sacred Valley which made a stop for lunch and the food really pleased me and my whole family thanks.

So worth getting a meal here! It’s a bit expensive, but it was easily one of the best meals we’ve had in Peru! Beautifully presented and absolutely delicious, I highly recommend the food at this restaurant.

Our tour guide took us to Merienda - initially we were expecting the usual Peruvian fare (not a bad thing - food is consistently excellent). However the food here was actually pretty refined - we had a trout ceviche and a ‘chupe de quinoa’ -...in both instances probably the best examples we had of each while in Peru, beautifully presented and tasted amazing. Highly recommend searching this place out if you’re in the area.More

Best meal we have experienced during our entire two week stay in Peru. Very rich but gentle flavors. We had the ceviche and the vegetarian arrabbiata. Exquisite flavors. Excellent service. Beautiful view from dining window.

We were on a family trip to Peru and we had a guide for only the Sacred Valley part of it. We had been touring the area all day and wanted to eat a late lunch. After we went into the archeological park, our guide...said that we should eat here. He said it had the best food. He was the one who suggested to the husband and wife team that they should open up a restaurant after tasting their food. It's been a success even though you have to pay to enter that area. The food is delicious. Everyone else had more traditional Peruvian fare but I wanted something different for a change. I had butternut squash ravioli in a sage sauce that was delicious. It rivaled anything like that that I've been served in an Italian restaurant. The only thing was that it took quite some time to get our food even though the restaurant wasn't crowded. Otherwise, it was great. I'm so glad that our guide knew to recommend it.More

Located just after the entrance to the archealogical park, this restaurant serves tasty food, clean environment, wide range of Peruvian options to enjoy. The hospitality is fantastic! Lomo de 3 pimientos is savory, it's meat in a pepper sauce...typical food and so tasty.

They don't have a Vegan menu, but catered for me anyway with the set menu 1. Good food, decent value. Nice view & very friendly husband & wife team. Salad, main, desert & drink for 25 soles. It was humbling to eat there, beautiful hospitality
