Delish spot with good views

We had the corn pastry with meat and raisins and the ricontos to split and they were both very good. I also had the Alabama tartare (to my friends dismay since we'd just taken pics with them that afternoon) which was really yummt with quail egg and some sort of crunchy seed mixed in.

This was our first meal in Cusco, and we were looking for something light as we were acclimatizing to the 11,000 ft altitude. Probably a mistake, as portions are substantial (miss starter unless you are really hungry). Food was very good however - highlight was Lechon crocante ("crunchy piglet"). Service excellent too.

We went here for the last day of our trip. We both loved the alpaca tartare. The Pisco sour was great. I had the lamb and the meat was great. My friend had the pig trio and he absolutely loved it. I only saw the desserts (too much food for me!) but they looked spectacular. My only negative point would... More

When in a place seemingly so tasty the trouble always starts with selection. If you select too much you end up overpaying - if too little you might miss out. That's when a good waiter comes in handy, especially with a menu in the same logic (plates to share, starters etc highlighted). And a terrible waiter can ruin it all... More

We went here for dinner and decided to order a number of small dishes that we shared. The food was very good and so fresh. Can be strongly recommended

For a vegetarian like me, Chicha's service was a total surprise. The chefs altered their set menu for me & my friend. Loved my quinoa based mains, frozen dessert and of corse, the pisco sour!. Definitely the best meal during whole of my Peru stay.

Chicha was a recommendation from locals and outsiders that did not fall short. The Alpaca Carpaccio was delicious and service was great. I really like the way the local ingredients are adjust to the modern days. I would definitely recommend this place when you are looking for a special dinner occasion at Cusco.

I went there with a party of six, to celebrate my mother's birthday. I thought it was going to be a special place to have have dinner, but I was terribly mistaken. Anybody was satisfied with their orders. Special mention to: - the octopus - so much sweet sauce on top that looked like a soup. Really bad; - the... More

We wanted to go to a Gaston Arcurio restaurant while we were in Peru and having failed to get a booking in Lima we thought we would try this one. Prices are very reasonable for Arcurio although not cheap by Cusco standards. Don't expect what you would get in Lima - our meal wasn't the outstanding innovative Arcurio that I... More

Had some authentic Cusconese food. The food was good and the portions were quite large. Recommended if you are in Cusco.
