It could have been fabulous

Had the rotisserie chicken not been so dry that I almost choked on it, my review of this place would have been glowing. The service was excellent, the atmosphere was attractive and convivial, and the rest of the food was really very good, but the chicken.... Let me first say that this dish was big... read more

The restaurant/bar is great. All dishes were wonderful and different from most street type restaurants in Cuzco. Ceviche was the best! We only went there for lunch but i am sure the place is even better for dinner with a nice bar and nice cocktails. If you are in Cuzco and you are a good eater.... dont miss it!

Long time that I haven't had an Osso Buco like that ;) Don't order a glass of wine because it might be opened for several days. Mine was flat and evaporated, which degraded completely the lunch experience, beside the amount served is ridiculous for the price.

You won't be disappointed. Can get busy later into the evening so go on the early side or make reservations for a late table. Everything we had was fantastic and presented in a very upscale fashion. Great drinks and service also. Classiest place you will find and a great value.

We sat at the bar for drinks and dessert. The bartenders were extremely friendly, and the food was fantastic. They even gave us a free bread plate of bread made with local grains. It is expensive, but worth it if you want to indulge.

My husband had been talking about Mr. Acurio's restaurants for a while before our trip. We were happy we got a reservation, and the food did not disappoint. Everything was so good. It was definitely worth paying more to eat there to try something like this.

Visiting Chicha should be on everyones list when you pass from Cusco. Although the decoration of the restaurant is very simple and bit too modern for Cusco as we where expecting more color and tradition when it comes to the style of the interior. Apart from that downside all the rest were great on our night. We wanted to try... More

It's was tasty all we asked: ravioli, pato, cordero. It's a bit expensive comparing to other places but worth to have this experience

We've visited Chicha with excitemnet: my husband had visited in the past and liked it, my daughter's friend also recommended. In fact, the ceviche is great. And also our other choices: local cuisine cooked in a contemporary fashion. Service is great, the restaurant is beautifull and cosy. It´s quite expensive, but I would not hesitate in visiting again.

We were disappointed since we had been to Astrid y Gaston in Madrid. The piglet was dry, the osso bucco wasn't surprising. The dessert was good and people were nice. But in general, I wouldn't say it was worth the price we paid.
