The freshest ingredients are used here and everything on the menu is mouth-watering. The ambience of the restaurant is made beautiful by the surrounding Andean Mountains.

After reading reviews of this place we decided to try coy here. It was surprisingly delicious. The skin is crispy and the meat is tender. Not fatty or gamey. The meal came with potatoes and corn. Plenty for 2. Reasonably priced.
