Not much in Urubumba. Found this place in lonely planet. Fast and friendly service. Dishes were all unique and tasty showcasing local products. Highly recommend.

After running around in a rain for over 2 hours we finally found Urubamba’s only Peruvian Restaurant. Great service, fair/low prices, delicious food. Grilled trout appetizer was amazing! Highly recommend!

El Huacatay is one of the best places to have dinner in Urubamba. They have traditional Peruvian dishes and a beautiful garden where you can eat. The prices are a bit higher than other restaurants but it's worth it.

Our Sacred Valley guide recommended this restaurant as the "best in Urubamba." While it was a little tricky to find,on a dark street, it was well worth the search! It's a quaint restaurant with a nice outdoor courtyard. My friend and I had a delicious...More
