Delicious! I has happy that we chose El Balcon to come and eat. After walking in the plaza, a buffet seemed like a great idea! The choices and variety were nice. The host and service excellent. I tried 'chuno' something I have not liked in the past, but the sauce was great and tasty. I recommend El Balcon for even the pickiest eaters. The live music was a bonus, too!

Among several interesting choices in the picturesque town of Chivay, Condor Travel booked for us El Bacon de Don Zacarias for lunch. It was excellent decision. Prime location next to the main town square. It was a very lovely place that offered an excellent and delicious lunch buffet, highlighting Peruvian classics. I was pleasantly surprised with the variety of the buffet, great vegetables and soups! Lots of meat options and very good desserts! Strongly recommended. Staff very friendly and welcoming guests with big smiles.

This restaurant was included as part of lunch for a tour group, hence I have no idea of cost in order to determine value. Arrived early and the chef kindly walked through the items on the buffet. Mainly to appeal to tourists: 2 dishes with alpaca ( one in a gravy which I enjoyed), 1 dish with cuy also in a stew with spicy sauce ( very good flavour but not much meat, lots of bones), variety of cooked then cooled vegetables as well as cucumbers, tomatoes, several soups, pasta, fish dish, desserts. Soft drinks were 4 soles.

..they have a menu with Quinua soup and Alpaca steak for 17 soles which is amazing. Really good value vs the buffet which didn't look very appetizing. Alpaca tastes like beef, but I would say it is softer. The soup is worth its value on its own, and the alpaca adds to a great menu.
