I would say this was the only place in Cusco where we had bad service. It is also the worst of all Gaston Acurio's restaurants, definitely go to other restaurants by him. We had a reservation for dinner, however we still waited for about a half hour to be seated. We also had to wait for another half hour to... More

We shared a few starters, enjoyed them all, decent wine list, and a gourmet twist on typical fare. Check it out!

We were very impressed with this restaurant. The quality, presentation and service was first class. The portions are quite generous and the staff knowledgeable about the individual dishes. We especially enjoyed the soups and potato bread. We dined here several times during our visit to Cusco. A great introduction to Peruvian cuisine.

We tried to book a table for having our New Year´s Eve dinner, but couldn´t get even the bar as was overbooked. It was a good thing that my family and I decided to pursue a dinner another night, and came there a bit earlier to avoid long lines. Surprisingly, I was able to avoid kind of 20 people before...

The prices are higher than common restaurant in Cusco, but the meals are really delicous and gives good opportunity to taste local speciality prepared in best possible way by a high class Peruvian restaurant.

Almost passed on Chicha since we were going to Astrid y Gaston in Lima, but ended up there for lunch which certainly was easier to get a table for. The menu is really fun and unique and the place is really interesting. If you can't get in for dinner go for lunch... it's worth it!

We had pre-paid a dinner at this restaurant through our travel agency, including a glass of wine for the four of us. From the very beginning we noticed that we were not really welcome guests. When we found out that the wine was only the house wine, we asked to change it, making clear that we would have of course... More

we were excited to check out the 3rd Astrid y Gaston restaurant of our weeklong trip and Chicha did not disappoint. We were exhausted after spending the day at Machu Picchu but dragged our weary selves to Chicha for a 10p reservations. The food was great- lots of local Cuzco dishes, the ceviche was fresh, although they did not run... More

We were really looking forward to this restaurant. We had already tried Cebiche La Mar and Papachos which were great. We were expecting the same for Chichas but were disappointed. We ordered the Mixed Cebiche and the Alpaca Tartar which were very good, however the Cuy was just ok. Ambience is very simple and service just ok.

Well... this restaurant belongs to a very famous chef in Peru, so because of that I decided to go and try its food. Located in a well known area this place is worth trying. When you sit down you receive some bread ...gratifying. The dish that you should try is called "menestron" really delicious. I recommend it because it is... More
