Don't get me wrong - dinner here was excellent - but it didn't quite hit the 5* mark. Quality of ingredients, cooking and service as you would expect from this level of restaurant. As other reviewers have noted the alpaca tartare is outstanding. Portions (especially mains) are generous so worth coming hungry. What was it missing for the 5 stars?... More

We went here for lunch and I was not very impressed. I ordered the fish soup and even though I got an absolutely huge bowl of soup, I did not particularly like it.

We didn't realize that this was a Gaston restaurant and stumbled upon it. We loved it. We waited about 30 minutes to get a table. The service was fine, but we loved the food. It was a bit pricey, but we enjoyed our dinner here. It was one of our better dinners in Peru.

Stopped here for a light dinner after a long day of touring. Had the corn stuffed ravioli and a fresh fruit juice. Both were excellent. Service was prompt and professional

Service and Food here is absolutely brilliant - order anything from the menu and drink a Pisco Sour! Portions are big so come hungry and order wisely.

Chicha was the first restaurant we visisted at Cusco Its reputation proceeds him, doesn't matter where you go in Peru, if you see a Gaston owned restaurant just go. The food is extraordinary, the service is great, locations and ambience are unique and prices in soles are not that bad. Coongratulation to Mr. Gaston for taking Peruvian cuisine to another... More
