Cafe Andino

Reviewed By lwarner03 - Bend, Oregon

Coffee and food, caters to tourists as many places here do. Nice place, my wife loved the bluegrass music they were playing.
It would be the perfect place if I was homesick and wanted something closer to what I’d find at home.
Everything was fine, nothing exceptional, all good though.

Catering to tourists as many places here do, there was good help if you need it with the language and lots of board games.
My friends and I found fancier food and coffee elsewhere in Peru but here we found a place to stay and play games, hang out, enjoy ourselves and recuperate from our travels. If that sounds good I highly recommend it. I liked the carrot cake they served and simple bread and butter was delicious as well. Coffee was the best I had in town.

Creperie Patrick

Reviewed By Cawthon Hall C

I went to Creperie Patrick one night to treat myself because it is rather expensive and I wouldn't be able to go regularly. After looking over the menu I picked one of their basic crepes, with mushrooms, cheese, beef, etc. The service was pretty average, they brought out my meal in a decent amount of time. My crepe was pretty decent, but it got really soggy and messy after about 4 minutes. I wasn't all that impressed by it, especially compared to crepes I have had elsewhere. For dessert I got one of their sweeter crepes, which was definitely good. It was very rich and I found myself scraping the plate to get the extra chocolate. I never went back after the first time because I didn't think it was worth the price I paid, but maybe some of their other dishes are better. If you have some cash to burn and want to gamble on some dinner then Creperie Patrick is your spot. If you want a dessert that's a little bit more fancy and rich, it is also a good spot. I wanted to give two stars because I thought the value was pretty weak, but the food wasn't bad and I actually really enjoyed dessert.

El Fogon

Reviewed By Miki F

After a long overnight bus ride and some morning sightseeing, we stopped here for lunch. Very popular with locals (always a good sign). I was desperate for some comfort food, a soup. I ordered llunca con gallina, amazing!! One of the most delicious soups I've tried. My husband had fried trout, which was delicious too. Days later we returned for dinner, I had pollo a la brasa and my husband, lomito saltado, all good.
They seem to cater for large groups, families. Also have a set menu for lunch, popular with working locals.
Good, fast, friendly service in a large, plenty of tables area.

Chilli Heaven

Whether you send your appetite to India or Thailand, the fiery curries at this English-run hotspot will seize your taste buds upon arrival, mercilessly shake them up and then spit them back out the other side as if you've died and gone to chili heaven (hence the name). They also bottle their own hot sauces here and bring in loads of beers you don't often see. Critical comida peruana Antidote.

After travelling through Ecuador by the time I arrived in Huaraz I was needing a break from local food and Chili Love had a delicious Thai Green Curry to suit my appetite. Really cute restaurant and delicious food. Service so-so but totally worth it for the food!

Trivio

Welcome to Trivio, Resto-bar Sierra Andina!The name ‘TRIVIO’ comes from the Latin word ‘Trivium’ which means ‘the confluence of three trails’. It was at these confluences or ‘Triviums’, that people would stop on the way to work and chat with their friends about life, love and news of the day. From these interactions at the Trivium came the word ‘Trivial’.TRIVIO Resto-bar Sierra Andina is also a junction of three trails – we have our own locally brewed craft beer – Sierra Andina, we also have our own line of organic coffee ShuQush from the Chachapoyas area and of course the great food from the renown Mi Chef kitchen where we prepare fresh delicious food using as many organic locally grown products as we can; many of which come from our own organic farm.Like the Triviums of history, we hope that our Trivio will be a place where you too can stop, take a load off, catch up with friends and enjoy some well prepared food and drinks.

Reviewed By Kurt E - Anchorage, Alaska

Trivio is a very nice casual dining spot for lunch or dinner off of Park Periodista, 3 short blocks north of the Plaza de Armas. Very friendly staff with great service. Interesting menu. The Andean soup was very good (full of flavor) and the shrimp fettuccini was excellent. We liked it so much that we returned for another meal.
Drinking water is free to fill your water bottle, something that is very rare in Peru.

13 Buhos

Reviewed By cmbtraveller - Vancouver, Canada

We stopped here for a drink and light snack one afternoon while walking around Huaraz. Beers were excellent but the fried potatoes really made our day. Of course you can't beat the potatoes in Peru on any given day but these were more special than special. If for nothing else go there to enjoy their fries!

El Porton Gaucho

We are Specialist Grilled Meat with variety of cuts, as well as delicious Creole dishes. Attention every day.

Reviewed By Liberto - Seoul, Korea

Decent steakhouse specialized for Argentine beef steaks. They provide really big portion of food - even the salad and fries are really hearty. Samplers are quite typical with traditional Peruvian spices.
The steak is big and they cook them as ordered. My medium rare rib eye was mind-glowingly good.
The atmosphere is very nice (probably an old-manshion being renovated for the restaurant) and service was seamless.

Entre Panes - Cafe House

Reviewed By alaskantravelnut - Anchorage

We had a couple of lunches here. It has a diverse menu of local fare. Most of the customers are local. The food is very good and the portions are very generous, including the drinks. It 's very reasonably priced. Not a place to eat if you're in a hurry. Otherwise, I highly recommend this restaurant, particularly if you're hungrier than usual.
