Stopped in due to great reviews, and wasn't disappointed the octopus chicharron ( might be misspelled), was great! Upon getting a to go box, because I couldn't finish it all, I was greeted by the manager, b/c I didn't take the rest of the yucca fries. He was concerned I had not liked them. I had, just not enough to... More

We ate here but it was nothing good. The steak was small and well done (asked for medium-red) and not very flavoury. The meal was not enough for a full stomach. The pasta with meat was not good either. The pasta was full with cheap cheese. The meat was fine. Maybe other dishes are better? Dessert got mixed up. Got... More

Although very accommodating, and we are vegans (full disclosure), there were good sounding options. The restaurant has a wide menu of Peruvian and intensively dishes. Clean and well taken care ambiance. The service by Nancy was great. She recommended some good day tours. Our food was not the best. Not the best, by any means, in Peru, not in our... More

It was our first night in Nazca and we were so glad to find this place and eat here. The staff was so friendly luckily my boyfriend and his friend can speak pretty good Spanish so we managed to communicate well. The more traditional foods were fantastic. My boyfriend had the burger and wasn't as happy but the rest of... More

If you want to enjoy some good dishes, we recommend you this place, the food is really good with a very good taste, we were surprised because Nazca is not a big city, however you can try the different options. We ate some fish and sea food, on the same way the novoandina fusion, we liked it, we were really... More

We had dinner here after a big day out flying over the Nazca lines and visiting the Mummies. The food here was excellent, the service was great especially the deserts!!! Would thorughly recommend this. Prices were also very reasonable. This restaurant also had excellent free wi-fi.

So I am sitting at Mamashana right now, enjoying a cold beer, awaiting my bus ride to Cuzco. I had a thruway of grilled meat, chicken, beef and pork, all tasty. Not fancy, but very filling and well worth the price. Karen (my waitress) has been very attentive and responsive.

Better be hungry... I had mixed rice with chicken. It was quite tasty and almost too much for me. Staff is very helpful and the place looks nice. I dont think, it gets much better than this (in nasca).

As the most highly recommended restaurant on Tripadvisor and in the Lonely Planet, you expect better food than this restaurant is able to deliver. The food is fine, but don't expect to be wowed by either the menu. Perfectly pleasant, and perhaps the best you might find in Nasca, but well short of standards in other Peruvian towns.
