Sujna Wasi: The best stuffed trout ever!
This restaurant was recommended by the French Guide du Routard and boy it did not disappoint!
When the weather is nice, there is a nice courtyard to sit in but we visited on a winter evening so we sat inside, with the welcome warmth of a wood fire in the big chimney.
Lake Titacaca provides the trouts and the cook at Sujna Wasi does the rest. The menu offered a good variety of trout dishes: fried, steamed, etc... I choose the slightly more expensive stuffed trout.
The fish was a decent size, cooked to perfection and stuffed with herbs, almonds and other unidentifiable but delicious ingredients. It was so good, I still salivate just thinking about it more than a year later.
I can't remember the vegs that came with the fish because they were eclipsed by the yummyness of the trout but they were good too.
We also had wine from Chile, which was cheap and more than decent. Service was also decent but not too smiley, who cares if the food is that good?
Favorite Dish: The stuffed trout: pure unadultered orgasmic foodie moment.

Coffe Bar Copacabana: A good place for Icecream
We didn't acctually eat there but the Ice creem was good. The coffee bar is one of several resturants along 6 de agosto as you walk towards the lake. All go for the cute touristy place with varrying degrees of success but this is where to go when looking for food. And after hiking around at 3800m, I don't care if it is cool you will get heated up and an Icecream can do wonders.
La Orilla: Watch the Sun Set over Lake Titicaca
Go here to eat and watch the sun set over Lake Titicaca. The time to go is about an hour before the sun sets, as it gets kind of cold after that. When you get in, head up the stairs to the left to reach the patio (it's not very big). There are average tourist prices (ex, a pasta dish is about $2) and the food is excellent. They also serve beer, wine, and licore.
Open Tu-Su 10am-2:30pm, 5pm-10pm
Favorite Dish: I had an excellent pasta, but they also offer pizza, nachos, sandwiches, etc
