On our way to the mountains we had the most wonderful dinner close to the center of Tilcara. We knew there was this great restaurant called Yacon as we learned from the internet. The place is very nice indeed, made of local, traditional materials and the service was excellent. We had amazing llama stake and mushroom sauce with quinoa risotto with delicious home wine. Don’t miss the original, fantastic desserts! Me and my husband also loved the posada they have at the back.

After a marvellous hike through the colored mountains we wanted a nice and quiet place, so decided to avoid touristy crowded Humahuaca with the tour buses. Our driver-guide recommended this place and it was just what we wanted. The place is tranquil, a nice interior, friendly and attentive service and great food - a real find in this touristy place.

This restaurant was recommended by the owner of the hotel we were at. He said no one else would be in the restaurant, but don't worry the food is good. He was totally correct! The interior decor was comfortable, the owner-waiter attentive and very pleasant and the steak and pasta dishes all excellent. We ate at the other restaurant the owner suggested the night before and enjoyed this one much, much more!

We got to Tilcara about 13:30, in a wonderful sunny day. We was running away from the crowd in Humahuaca where most of the restaurants were full and rushing to get a place. We decided to take it easy and make the lunch to be a pleasure instead of just the need to get satisfied.
Yacon, as always was not too busy during midday. A soft music in the background made our stay delicious. We ordered empanadas, their quinoa pie, llama beef, fried chips called papas fritas rejillas cut as waffles, crispy and delicious...
Throught he window we could still enjoy the sun shining outside and the cool weather of the inside.
The dishes came after the appetizers and the empanads with the typical llajwa.
Everything was so good we left no room for any dessert. But we were not only satisfied but happy to have chosen YACON as our home for the lunch.
Hope you also enjoy of it.

Service is very good. Chef / attendant super friendly. Very nice ambience. Not very easy to find location - but is worth looking for it! I had the best pesto pasta ever! Soup and empanadas were also good. It accepts visa too!
