Description: Very small restaurant on the main plaza in town. Vilcabamba has very few restaurants to choose from so this was a "find" for us (we ate there twice one day). Mostly Mexican food and it was delicious...

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2013

Very nice restaurant on the central square. Unfortunately they do not take reservations, and the kitchen closes quite early. Try the fajitas!

“Nice option in Vilca”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2012

This place is in a nice location kitty corner from the central park in Vilca. They have outdoor seating, which is nice. It was very busy.

I had a tuna salad. It was basic tuna with greens, cuumbers, olives, tomatoes etc. All ingredients were fresh. It came with olive oil and vinegar to dress it yourself. Nothing fancy. My husband had beef and bean burrito, which came with a side of guac and chips. It was very good.

All told, I'd say service, food, price and value are about equal. The difference maker vs other dining options in the area might be the outdoor seating with a view of the park, people watching etc.,

“Ok food but slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2012

It may have been bad timing for La Terraza but both times we were there the service was exceptionally slow (even just for two cups of tea). The menu is good value. We had hamburgers for lunch one day which were ok. There is a range of other food that may be better.

“Kind People Working Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2012

The food was better than average. However, what I must comment on was how sweet the staff was. After traveling for 8 hours by bus, I'd accidentally left my fleece there. Since the weather was so great, I didn't realize it until 4 days later. When we went back as asked about it, they handed it right back to me! I was positively elated!

“Ate there twice it was so good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

We arrived in Vilcabamba starving and found this place by the square. What a delight!
The food was great and it didn't take ages to get ready. Burritos, Nachos and Fajitas made to the perfection.
For U$ 10 you can eat very good and even have a beer or two.
If you are in Vilcabamba try La Terraza, it is worth it!
But don't try to go after 9pm, restaurants and bars close early in Vilcabamba.
