We spent a week in the Sacred Valley and this restuarant in Pisaq really stands out in my mind. The ambiance was lovely with a fireplace near our table. There's also outdoor seating in the back with lovely little white Christmas lights and beautiful flowers. All in all, I recommend sitting in the front dining area where there's a fire!... More

I just sent in a review of the restaurant of the hotel Pisac Inn and only later found out that it is identical with Cuchara de Palo. Since you list them as 2 restaurants, I suggest to correct this mistake. Correction: "Cuchara de Palo" (Nr. 3 in your list of restaurants in Pisaq) and "Pisac Inn" (Nr. 9 in your... More

We had a nice lunch here after touring the Pisaq archaeological site. The soups, main course and dessert were all excellent. The Pisaq market on the square is right outside their door. It's surprising to find such high quality restaurants in these small towns.

Pisac Inn's owners & staff have spent decades perfecting and adapting their menu, service-level, and decor to please travelers of all ilks (including this picky gringo). Menus are Spanish & English, & choices range from traditional Andean to fusion Andean/Italian (pasta al pesto) and Andean/Chinese (quinoa stir fry was delicious). Portions adequate, service excellent, and atmosphere clean, quiet, & tastefully... More

Cuchara de Palo, I'm willing to bet, has the best food in the whole Sacred Valley. Amazing cuisine comes out of that small kitchen. Even their oatmeal is fantastic. The service is impeccable, and the dinners are ridiculously tasty. If you are in Pisac, you've got to eat here. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, whatever, just eat here.

We had a stop over here to see the market with the possibility to buy cheap souvenirs. This restaurant is on the square so super easy excess. Toilets clean. We had a quick good solid lunch. Peruvian dishes with rice, good soup, coffee afterwards and off we went again to travel to the next visit.

We stayed at pisaq inn for two nights and their food was BY FAR this best food in Pisac!!! You must go and order the Trucha with passion fruit sauce. You will not be disappointed. The waitstaff was extremely accommodating and met our special requests. I wish I was closer, it would be one of my favorite meal stops!

It might have been just the timing but this was one of the best meals of the trip. Wonderful Lomo Saltado. Purple potatoes with golden pepper sauce. Aji de Gallina was the best the trip and bordered on the absolute sublime. A simple peruvian stew of chicken and golden sauce. Just wonderful food. Our service was excellent but we had... More
