Chicha was just steps from our hotel and been a Gaston Acurio restaurant we had to try it. The decoration is very modern, the environment and staff mega cold. The staff doesn't know the menu and cannot make recommendations. Good lamb ravioli but we enjoyed our dinner at Cicciolina 200 times better!

not easy to find a table here: we had to book a couple of days in advance and only at the hour the staff told us it was available. looks like there are a couple of rooms and we were assigned the informal one. worthwhile food experience, with a wide menu whose options have ties to the local territory as...

Really nice restaurant, with authentic Peruvian food and great drinks. They bring out this nice bread starter where all breads are made out of different Peruvian grains etc. I had the lomo saltado and it was up there with the best. Make sure you book before going or be prepared to wait a good time.

The experience is just great since they have a very nice setting; the service is really good, and the food is professionally prepared.

We didn't have reservations, but fortunately there were five seats at the bar, and we took them. Everything was excellent and innovative. I had the rocoto (Peruvian chile relleno), and it was spectacular. My friend Adolf sitting next to me had pork dish that was sublime. I asked the waiter about it preparation, and he confirmed what I had surmised.... More

We were happy to discover the Chicha restaurant also in Cuzco and we enjoyed very much, this is another style but great for dinner. A place to return.

One of the best food I have ever eaten in my life and the price is great, you would probably pay at least the doube for a same quality meal in a major capital.

We went two nights in a row.. Because the lamb ravioli were two good and..... this place is really above any other place in cusco. Top service from waitress and chefs. The manager was very attentive and spoke with each table. The overall service outperform US top restaurants. The food will probably deserve some Michelin stars soon...

We ate here on our trip to Cusco. We didn't have a reservation but we went a little early and got a table with no wait. The atmosphere is lovely. The service is immaculate and the staff give great recommendations. The food was divine. Simple dishes incredibly well composed and presented. Pricey for Peru but still a bargain by european... More

One of the top restaurants in Cusco of international standard. The Ossobuco was nice and tender, grilled chicken and other Peruvian dishes worth trying. Highly recommend this restaurant for lunch. Reservations required for dinner.
