The food here is very good not out of this wrold but very good. the restaurant has a great location. I had the prok belly which was amazing or just go for the classic lomo saltado you can never go wrong. great drinks too, however, the place itself is a little overpriced but doable.

The food was good but not mind blowing. The portions are big. A solid choice but a bit pricey. The pork belly looked amazing.

After a long day acclimating in Cusco, this place was the perfect respite. My wife and I shared the corn cake to start (awesome!) and I followed with lechon crocheta and my wife had the vegetarian mushroom stew. We finished the night full and very satisfied and trust that you would too.

The food is good, however we were at Chicha Arequipa and it was by far superior to this one. Good ambience, but too much noise. The service wasn't good either. Overpriced.

Wish I've never been there. We ordered a plate for two (as was written on the menu). When it came, seemed more like a starter for one. Ridiculous! Extremely expensive. In the end we had to ate more in another place, where real food is served.

The restaurant is very good, quality of food, variety and drinks are high quality. Employee noise and service is the problem. It is the first time a waiter tried hard to convince me not to order a given entree. Many options not available maybe we had a late lunch.

Coming from Lima I am used to great peruvian food but honestly I was very disappointed by Chicha in Cusco. The food was very average and with prices that are just crazy. Lomo saltado almost 55 S/. Gaston Acurio is great doing business with restaurants but I think is becoming a little massive and loosing the sense of the quality... More

We ate here at the recommendation of a friend who regularly travels to Peru. We were not impressed. My daughter ordered the lamb which she said was stringy and chewy. My other daughter and I ordered the ravioli , which was ok. My son ordered the pizza which he did not like (disclaimer: he's picky) ; and my husband ordered... More

Definitely a good idea. The restaurant is on the second floor and has a nice view of the square. Ordered some typical 'touristy' fare and my stomach was all the more happier for it. Started with complimentary warm potato-based bread and vegetable and celantro spreads. For the appetizer I ordered the Cebiche - raw fish in lemon and chilli, served... More

Very helpful waiters which made the experience better as they described the food and listened to our preferences. Definitely better than cicciolina
