Huacatay always has good food, only living in Peru a few months of the year I wish they would change their menu around. Same menu as two years prior, and only found two entree choices I would entertain. Very good food though.

All five of us (vegetarians, pescatarians and a carnivore) enjoyed our delicious meal at El Huacatay. It was our favorite restaurant in Urubamba. Pretty outdoor, candle lit entrance, exotic drinks and yummy food.

The food was really good but I was especially impressed with the service. I had read an old guidebook which said they only accept VISA (they actually accept all cards except VISA). We had to be careful to order while still being able to pay...More

So sorry I didn't respond. Haven't been on this site since reviewing. I couldn't help, however, since we were with a guide. Hope you found it and enjoyed.
