Eating and drinking

Eating in Papallacta is bound to involve fresh trout from the nearby fish farms and lakes. The best and most expensive restaurant is at the Termas de Papallacta, which has a dining room in the bathing complex and in the main hotel, and serves excellent food, with much of the fresh produce grown in their organic vegetable garden. For a cheaper feed, try the Hostería Pampa Llacta, whose trout is fresh out of its own pond, or the popular Choza de Don Wilson at La Y de Papallacta, where the well-prepared trout and chicken staples come with good views of the valley and a lively atmosphere.
