“Great vegetarian menus for 6 soles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

Lunch and dinner menus they offer in their 2 restaurants in cusco ( the other one is on Tigre). Very very cheap menus and they also offer breakfast for 7 which I didn't try though. Very decent food for ver very little. Amazing place when on a budget!

“Great, cheap food if you order the menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

We have eaten here twice and ordered the menu. My kids ordered french toast, which takes much longer. The menu costs S7 and includes a trip to the salad bar, a big bowl of tasty soup, a main dish (choice of 2) and a drink. The first time we ate there I didn't receive a drink and the second time I had to ask. It's hard to beat the flavor of the food at the price of the menu. Much cheaper than other spots around this touristy area of Cusco.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Food was great! Portions were big too. Favorite veg place in cusco. Try the Lomo Saltada, the bistek al pobre, or the chiunfo de quinoa

“Good taste, good choice.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Whether or not you are vegetarian, a vegetarian meal is a good choice as you get used to the altitude. Food is good and reasonably prized. A wonderful bonus is for one year old Jesu ( spelling?) to blow you a kiss.

“Vegetarian meals in Cusco”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

The El Encuentro restaurants in Cusco (there are two) are the best place I have found so far for vegetarian food. I like the veggie burgers, though the Peruvian menü is the most popular lunch choice coming with soup, salad buffet, an entrance and a drink (usually an infused warm water) for only 7-8 soles (depending on which location you go to). They could do to re-vamp the atmosphere, maybe a thorough cleaning and re-painting.
