Over-the-top decorations and labyrinthine rooms give this restaurant charm, but the food has made it a favorite. The wood-fired pizza is some of the best in the entire sierra, and the parillada (grilled meats) is a Peruvian classic executed to perfection. Wash it down with a pitcher of calientitos (hot spiced rum punch). The service can be slow, but it will all be worth is, as you sit in the garden on balmy days or by the fire on cooler ones, and enjoy
superb cuisine, fine company, and live music. The owner is connected to the Casa de la Abuela hostel, and can arrange cooking classes, Spanish lessons, music instruction, and long-term local homestays. A book exchange, tourist information, and numerous maps are available.
