We had a great window seat. None of the staff spoke any English so my basic Spanish and the Google translate app was essential. They were really helpful though and even provided us with garlic bread with our pasta even though it wasn’t on the menu. Unfortunately they duplicated all the dishes so there was two of everything but one... More

We ate dinner at this restaurant twice when we visited Puno. We ordered grilled trout one with garlic sauce and the other with mustard sauce which comes with vegetables and rice or smashed potatoes. Portion size was ok and the price was also reasonable. Service was not fast but waitress was kind of friendly and helpful. They also have free... More

I was looking for small meal & TV to watch while eating. I'm travelling solo so watching a program is better. They have a range of 4 oven baked pizza sizes. As well as an extensive menu of tradicional fare. A nice Bar area. Good service a quickly cooked. I can see an amazing potential here. The bar made more... More

Classic tourist trap. Not even that cheap either compared to other good restaurants around such as 'Colors'. The pizza was okay - but the cheese in the center was not melted. The ravioli - stay clear!! The worst pasta we have ever had. Cold, tasteless, raw. The worst: we sat at a table towards the back of the restaurant. Out... More

This restaurant is located in the main square of Puno. Great place for a casual meal, they make brick oven pizzas that can easily serve 2 people. We went for more traditional Peruvian food. I got a quinoa soup and potato meal. The menu is at least 6 pages, and offers a ton of variety. The atmosphere was a little... More

The food is great! I had the Cuy - 1st time - and it was pretty good. They have a full bar, but they bar guy wasn't in yet so we had wine. The pasta was well cooked. And the service was great - we were one of two groups there at the time. People started showing up around 5:30... More

This restaurant is one of the best in Puno for a casual meal. I was surprised at the low rating this restaurant has. The waitress informed me that the restaurant had recently changed ownership, and that under the new ownership, the restaurant has improved very much. The menu has something to please everyone, and has a wide variety to choose... More

I was looking for somewhere for lunch and the menu looked appealing. It's in a central location opposite La Casino. My meal was delicious. Better than the meal I had the night before in Incabar just down the road (which is much more positively reviewed)

Most of our group didn't received our drinks until well over half an hour after finishing our main courses. Most starters came after the main course. The pina colada was not a pina colada and didn't not resemble the picture remotely. One member of our group ordered a desert which was served cold. When asked to have it heated that... More

Walking along from the main square, a cool evening, we looked into the restaurant, saw the open oven for cooking pizzas, grabbed a table by the oven to keep us warm and had the most enjoyable pizza that we saw being cooked too!
