We went here for dinner last week on a Saturday night. It was not busy at all. In fact we were the only diners. Even though we were the only diners, we felt ignored by 3 people working there. They were kinda busy doing something else. We ordered a salad for appetizer and 2 main. We got our 2 mains... More

So their menu was 30 soles for 3 courses - I had the salad very good - others had the soup - very large portion and tasty. The main course was Lomo Salato average and the yellow chicken meal - also average. Meat was too rare for beef - so sent back and cooked as desired - no issues. Dessert... More

Went here as part of an organised tour, if I had my own choosing I would have looked up something on trip advisor and chosen that way, but I didn't have a choice in this instance. My partner and I got 2 entrees. The soup was so salty and the alpaca salad had 3 1cm slivers of alpaca with some... More

I think I have only ever given one 1* review before on TripAdvisor but this place more than earned it. We ordered from a set menu and it took us over an hour for our bowls of tepid, salty soup and alpaca-less alpaca salad to be bought out. In the meantime another large group who came in a long time...

First day in Cusco on holiday. The tour guide recommended the restaurant. The guide tools there. Most people already there were tourists. We just order main courses and drink. It took over 90 minute for the food to arrive. When they finally arrived my dish and my friend's beef were tough and not very hot. Staff didn't off an apology... More

We came here on the recommendation of a local who even came with us and sat with us during the meal. Great. They recommended the alpaca and it did not disappoint. Lovely Peruvian Cabernet Sauvignon and local beer to go with it. A lovely night out. Excellent service and very well priced. A hidden gem.

We stumbled into this hidden gem during our first day in Cusco. Service was good, albeit slow and unhurried. We ordered the trout ceviche (delicious), aji gallina (mediocre) and a bottle of vino tinto (very reasonably priced and also very good). We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Just off the Plaza de Armas, upstairs in a courtyard, with a welcoming staff, terrific menu featuring Peruvian specialties as well as pastas, fusion appetizers, the BEST pisco sours and a nice wine list. Beautiful service tops it off.
