Lomo saltado was amazing, best I've had. Alpaca carpaccio was interesting but had too much cream sauce. Corn ravioli were great although a bit too sweet. Chicharron de cerdo (no skin) was very good. I highly recommend this place. Amazing flavors.

The restaurant is very nice, and people are very friendly! Food is pretty good but I expected more. The cocktail bar is very good a lot of drinks to try before dinner.

Service is terrible. I made a reservation with 2 months of anticipation and confirmed 2 weeks before and they still were able to not take notes of my reservation. Gladly, I was able to got a table because food is really good. I recommend the Lomo a lo pobre.

High level of customer service and food is very very well done (all at reasonable prices when benchmarked vs. comparable North America restaurants). Definitely one of our better meals during our week long trip in Peru.

Toughest steak since we arrived in Peru Food was quite bland and cold No atmosphere best thing about this place was the cocktail - but then again I saw two waiters taste it before it got to me!

We had a feast at Chicha, and it was fantastic. One of the best restaurants in Cusco. It's definitely fine dining and on the more expensive side (compared to local fare), but worth the splurge. We had the pork sampler (I can't recall what it was actually called) and I was in heaven. I understand it can be hard to... More

We had been told to go to a restaurant by Gaston Acurio while in Peru so we booked a table here with great expectations. The restaurant almost lived up to them. The menu was interesting and the food good and well presented. The service was OK though not as friendly or genuine as in most places we had visited in... More

We have eaten at three of Gastons restaurants in Peru and his one was the best thus far. The service was really good, so I think based on previous reviews this must have been sorted out. The food was fantastic, the staff were friendly and explained the menu really well. Food and drinks turned up fairly quickly and all in... More

I ordered a trout with some vegetables with rice with quinoa. Meal was real tasteful but it come so quicky that I could... More

This was one of our last meals we had on our trip. Food was delicious. I ordered seafood and the view was great. We had a table next to the city view which was great for our last day.
