Came for lunch. Pretty slow day. Had the set menu and swapped the dessert for creme brulee. All the food was great. Even the snails!

We had the tasting menu of 7 courses and were not disappointed in the least! Each course was imaginative and prepared expertly. Fritz was attentive without being overbearing and guided us through the great courses. We left very happy and not overwhelmed or stuffed just very pleasantly treated to culinary treats by an expert kitchen.

Very welcoming by the owner but doesn't live up to its reviews - it is like eating in a mortuary, absolutely devoid of any atmosphere. The food was beautifully cooked and tasty but why do the French have such a reluctance with vegetables. I asked for veg with the duck and it was great but one slice of a new... More

We had a wonderful culinary experience in Peru, loved all the great local cuisine options, but it was such a treat to have a superb French meal in the heart of Cusco. We were definitely underdressed (hiking around all day) but felt totally welcomed. The chef sent out a great complimentary appetizer, and each course was better than the last.... More

After an exhausting day traveling to Cusco, this was comforting and indulgent without being over the top. It's extremely delicious and difficult not to love. We arrived early so we're able to get a table without any issues. Compliments of the chef, we received a little soup sampler - pumpkin with ginger and coconut cream. I would have eaten the... More

We booked for a Saturday night to arrive early to an almost empty restaurant. We cant understand why. The welcome was warm, the food was amazing, the wine by the glass was limited but fine and the service was very good. Perhaps it is location, down a side street. Perhaps it is cost. It was about 100USD for two courses... More
