Nestor and his wife will host you in their restaurant and serve you a simple menu of the day with few alternatives which are cooked very carefully and very well presented. We had fish, chicken and alpaca, all of good quality. The welcome we had from the couple was particularly warm.

We walked around a while trying to find this place. It seemed surprising that our lodge was not familiar with it. When we did find it, there was no one there. It looked closed up.

We ate lunch here during a 2 day tour of the Colca Canyon. There were just the two of us, along with our driver and guide, and we were made to feel like honoured guests! The food was delicious; we had alpaca for the first time and really enjoyed it! The restaurant is beautifully decorated (really unique floors) but we sat outside enjoying the sunshine and the garden. A very gracious host!

We stopped here as part of a 2 day tour. There were no other guests and we relaxed at the long courtyard table. Food is Peruvian and tasty. The menu is limited but the staples, trout, alpaca etc are there. The chicha was very refreshing!

We had lunch here in a lovely courtyard garden. We had a hearty chicken soup, choices of chicken, trout or alpaca and a local fruit mousse. They were very obliging and served a couple of different sauces with the meal . They also went off to source more chillies for us.
