This is a great hostel and was featured on the travel show EARTH UNRAVELED (on YOUTUBE). You can see the TV show's full walk thru and rooms review on youtube by searching earth unraveled desert nights. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, location is absolutely perfect, and nothing like being in a desert oasis! Truly an awesome travel experience.

The restaurant have really nice outdoor seating that make sit great for people watching and observing the cute surroundings of the lagoon. The food however is very average and a bit overpriced for the quality. The service is friendly but incredible. Overall very average place with a nice setting, but don't go for the food.

After our Sunset Buggy ride on the Dunes (which was really awesome, a MUST do), we had our meal here. It was very busy, and it took a long time for our meal to come thru. The portions were huge! It was late evening during late May, and it was very cold.

I stopped here just to grab a very quick lunch before hopping on an overnight bus. The food was affordable, the portions were huge (I got the pesto pasta), and the service was fast and incredibly friendly (thanks for putting up with my fledgling spanish!). I also noticed they had some really awesome looking sundaes on their menu... sadly I... More

The food is average, as well as the drinks. The service is good. A good choice compare to other restaurants in this Oasis.

During ou dinner waiter was very attentive and nice. Food quality depends on the choice - hamburger was truly disappointing (dry meat, lack of sauces), though I really liked the chinese rise dish. Portions are huge, you don't need an apertizer! Prices - around 25-35 soles for the main course.

I stayed in Huacachina for 3 days. I think Desert Nights is the best restaurant in Huacachina. We can use Lunch special, happy hour. Lunch special is really really good. It's just 15 sol. Any restaurant in Huacachina has same price. But taste and quality are totally different. 와카치나 레스토랑 중 최고. 저렴한 가격은 아니지만 와카치나의 모든 레스토랑이 저렴하지 않음을... More

Good deal lunch special. Also ordered a salad with chicken and avocado which was lovely. Could do with a little less sauce, other than that, it was a good place to have a meal (lunch or dinner)
