I've just returned from a trip to Cusco. I traveled with 6 friends and we all loved the food at Chicha! We went there on our first day, and on our last day at the city, when we celebrated one of our friend's birthday! I highly recommend the Pastel de Choclo, which I ordered on both visits to the restaurant.... More

Yes Gaston Acurio's restaurants are everywhere. He may be a good chef but the food in his Cusco restaurant was average. I had the beef tenderloin dish which turned out very salty. However the vegetarian gnochi was quite good.

It was a nice meal but not "star" quality. We had a nice dinner but it wasn't very special. The restaurant was nice.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Chicha. The bread was especially good and there were many local specialties to choose from. I would definately recommend it to others vacationing in the area.

We ate at Chicha on our last night in Cuzco. Our hotel rang for a table at the last minute and we were told there were none available until 9pm. We went there anyway at 7pm and got straight in with no reservation. The menu was excellent with many items to choose from. I had the crackling pig and it... More

We ate here because of a local recommendation. We had no reservation but had no issues getting seated. This was the best meals we had while in Peru. My husband had a lamb dish and I had the beef. It was very good. We also picked a Peruvian wine to go with our meal. Service was top notch.

We went with friends for dinner to Chicha in Cuzco. It was a very interesting experience. We started with a cocktail. Waw! The tastes of the starters and the main courses are all exquisite. And the wine list is also very good and balanced. Certainly a place to go to.

On our last night in Cusco we decided to try Chicha as it came highly recommended. The restaurant did not disappoint. The food was fantastic and the setting of the restaurant is modern and intimate. The service was prompt and all of the recommendations made were delicious.

This came recommended by a friend in US who is Peruvian. We went for a late lunch. Everyone enjoyed what they had - full gamut from soup, salad to full meal. Fantastic table at the window, great view. Since this was before Inca trail - no cocktails, am sure it would be great as well. It is upstairs, need to... More
