Excellent food in a very modern atmosphere - the menu covered all tastes - the corn pie was basic and very enjoyable. My wife's dish was more like a pork belly - very tasty, perhaps too much fat but very enjoyable. Excellent service and a great spot if you have a window seat to enjoy the best of Cusco.

A friend and I had such a lovely meal here! The restaurant is nicely located inside a colonial house and the decor inside it is beautiful and chic! The food and service was beyond fabulous! One of my favorite part of the meal was the view from my seat... Just a lovely view of cusco from the window! Our lunch... More

Tried the smoked trout and cuy. Trout was decent but avoid the cuy. Portions were better than expected but prices were high by local standard. There are better options elsewhere in Cusco. Come here if you want to tick the "Gaston Acurio box".

I keep being amazed by Gaston Acurio, every restaurant is different and with a local taste. This was an amazing representation of the local food in Cusco. I can still remember the best carpaccio ever Alpahaca Carpaccio. Every parto of the menu was just amazing with flavors melting in your mouth. I have been in other Gaston Restaurants but this... More

Excellent food, more than we could eat. The appetizers were the best. The "stuffed corn kernels", actually a kind of meat pie, was fantastic, and the trout ceviche was very tasty. The only blemish were the somewhat tasteless sides with my main dish (potatoes and corn) -- but I was already full. This is an excellent restaurant, although if I... More

Hands down the best restaurant in Cusco, so the locals say, and from the few that we tasted in Peru, indeed the best. Good food, good service. Try the Tiradito as appetizer, absolutely fabulous. Tried one of Gaston Acurio's restaurants in Lima and can say that Chicha was much better! (did you know he has a restaurant also in San... More

Nothing memorable about the food. I had the cuy which was 5 small strips (not the entire guinea pig) on top of alot of quinoa and cabbage. For 66 soles this was overpriced. Waiter told us to avoid the pizza. Would not go back here.

Cool atmosphere, great food, and wait staff extremely attentive. Agree that it is probably one of the better restaurants in Cuzco and worth a visit. A little more expensive than other food options in the area. About a block off the main square, next to the Choco Museum.

During our recent trip to Cusco, the staff at our hotel, the Tierra Viva Cusco Plaza, highly recommended Chicha's for dinner. After enjoying one of the festivals in the plaza, we walked to Chicha's for an early dinner. I was dining there with two friends - all of the meals were amazing and the service was fantastic!
