My wife, son and I were visiting Cajamarca this past September and someone recommended we definitely eat at Tuna Cafe before we leave. We were never more pleased with this small warm cozy restaurant. The customer service was great, and the natural home made foods made from scratch were absolutely spectacular. We highly urge anyone visiting Cajamarca to dine at... More

Menu only 9 sol, waitress did not speak English but the owner did and was very nice. a lot of suits in at lunch time is always a good sign. Music at a nice low volume, with out any blenders drowning out conversation proved to set a perfect ambience. Lemon chicken was a winner for my visiting mother from England,... More

Came in for dinner and tried to order the the spaghetti bolagnese and they didn't have the stuff to make it. Tried to order something else and they couldn't make that either. Went with a chicken sandwich that came out looking like something my mom would have made me when I was 6. White sandwich bread with no crust. I... More

We passed this lovely restaurant while strolling through Cajamarca and stopped there for lunch. It is warm, very welcoming and we had a very delicious lunch! Starter - Main - Dessert and a glass of Lemonada all served with a smile! The restaurant is lovely decorated and they love to cook and serve guests!

The menu is the daily lunch special that includes an appetizer, main course, drink and dessert for a very affordable price! The food is delicious and the restaurant is very clean. The ambience is nice and it feels very homey.

We ate twice at the Tuna Cafe and both time left very satisfied. The first time I had the pork in caramel sauce, which was good, only a bit too sweet for me but the meat was super tender. My husband had the beef with wild mushroom sauce and sautéed potatoes, this dish was spectacular, the beef so tender, the... More

The menu is big and the food is good. Lunch is really cheap, and the price for dinner is fair. Good pizza.

We visited twice yesterday as a recommendation from our tour guide; once for lunch and later for pizzas. We really enjoyed the menu option, the ribs were excellent and the meal was healthy. As others have mentioned, s/. 9 for a menu is a good price, especially when it is quality. We returned for pizza in the evening which were... More
