The Food served is excellent, they serve local dishes (and regular courses for the less adventurous). Friendly staff, with a focus on service. Staff gives you the time to enjoy your dinner. Restaurant charges fair prices. The Outside dining works well with the heaters and blankets they provide. We will be back to enjoy.

We didn't eat the guineapig special but we really enjoyed this restaurant. Sitting outside was warm even though it was a chilly evening and the atmosphere with the opens ovens/fire is great. Mains were okay (pork in clay pot is served on a plate, steak comes in a clay pot - confusing) but the appetizers especially the alpaca skewers were... More

The place is beautiful. Very warm, with live traditional music, traditional pottery and very artistic decoration. Also, there's a wood-fired oven, where you can see your bread and meat getting cooked. We tried the lamb, which was truly delicious. The meat generally seemed really good quality and very well cooked. The pizzas weren't bad either.The only dish that didn't excite... More

Great restauran in a very nice location. The terrace with the outdoor oven is very nice. The Lomo Saltado Don Lucho was wonderful as so was the Chicha Morada.

Maybe I am too picky, but coming from Lima to Cusco is night and day when it comes to food. I think Pachapapa tries too hard. It is pricey and the dishes we ordered where small and flavorless. I prefer to eat where the locals go. This is very touristy, so expect to pay.

Great service, outdoor terrace setting with home made bread and an outdoor fire oven where they bake the bread, roast guinea pigs, and cook the pizzas. Awesome atmosphere.

This was the first restaurant we dined at in Cusco and it was the best. The oven featured prominently and rightly so because all manner of delicious breads, roasted Andean trout and Chicarron emerged from it. Warm toasty and absolutely delicious. A great intro to Peruvian fare for the first time visitor to Cusco. It kinda spoilt the other restaurants... More

The food is fresh and sooo good! We went twice and tried the pizza which is very good! The cuy is also very well prepared, is roasted in a wood stove, is great. One cuy is enough for 3 people. The staff is attentive and speak english and some french. I do recommend this restaurant!

Local food place geared very much to the tourist crowd. Good fresh Cuy but 25 soles more than everywhere else. Eat inside at night as it gets chilly. Papa Relleno was amazing

Dear customer, thank you for sharing your review with us. Pachapapa is a restaurant focused on Peruvian and Cusquenian cuisine by tradition. Our authentic central Cusquenian patio creates a great atmosphere, considering we have an Andean harp playing during the afternoons. Our clay oven located at the back of our patio, permits us to bring to yiur table fresh pizza... More
