We ate at Chicha on our last night in Cuzco. Our hotel rang for a table at the last minute and we were told there were none available until 9pm. We went there anyway at 7pm and got straight in with no reservation. The menu was excellent with many items to choose from. I had the crackling pig and it... More

We ate here because of a local recommendation. We had no reservation but had no issues getting seated. This was the best meals we had while in Peru. My husband had a lamb dish and I had the beef. It was very good. We also picked a Peruvian wine to go with our meal. Service was top notch.

We went with friends for dinner to Chicha in Cuzco. It was a very interesting experience. We started with a cocktail. Waw! The tastes of the starters and the main courses are all exquisite. And the wine list is also very good and balanced. Certainly a place to go to.

On our last night in Cusco we decided to try Chicha as it came highly recommended. The restaurant did not disappoint. The food was fantastic and the setting of the restaurant is modern and intimate. The service was prompt and all of the recommendations made were delicious.

This came recommended by a friend in US who is Peruvian. We went for a late lunch. Everyone enjoyed what they had - full gamut from soup, salad to full meal. Fantastic table at the window, great view. Since this was before Inca trail - no cocktails, am sure it would be great as well. It is upstairs, need to... More

We chose this spot because it was recommended in Lonely Planet. It was the best meal I had in Cusco! Everything was very tasty and I enjoyed everything that I ate. I loved the popped corn that came with the ceviche, the textures mixed very well in the mouth. This restaurant is considered expensive in Peru, but once converted to... More

We were able to get a table early in the evening without reservations. The restaurant filled up quickly after that. My husband enjoyed a margarita, presented more like a martini and I had a juice drink with mango and passion fruit to start. We then shared a mixed ceviche which was excellent and corn pastille for appetizers. My husband loved... More

We had high hopes for this restaurant after having great meals at restaurants in Lima by Gaston Acurio. The food was average at best and service not very attentive. Although it was not very expensive for US standards, there are much better and cheaper places in Cusco to have better Peruvian/Peruvian Fusion cuisine.

Impressed but our previous experience at a Gaston Acurio we couldnt miss this place once in Cusco and certainly was the best dinner we had in town. Very cozy setting, quiet atmosphere, we came early without reservation and found a place (with the condition of leaving the table within 2 hours). Good portions cooked to perfection, excellent ingredients. Not cheap... More

I was in Cusco for a day and 1/2 on a tour with free time to eat where I wanted. I went with some new found friends to Chicha . The restaurant was booked when we called for a reservation but we went anyway and got seats at the bar. It was very interesting to watch these gentlemen make drinks... More
