Delicious and Creative

Chicha has great food! We went there for dinner. The food was inventive, creative, and delicious! They have food that is from around the world and local. Seafood, alpaca, vegetarian. Great drinks as well.

If you go to Cusco you have to go to this restaurant. The food is very good, the ambiance is nice and the drinks are awesome! We couldn't get enough of this place. The service is really good too. Make reservations ahead of time, is a busy restaurant.

The food was good, the service was terrible. We didn't have reservations, so we went at 5pm. We were told to come back at 7--even though the place was empty. Then, as we headed out, the hostess told us to come back: "MAYBE we have a table for you." Compared with other food we had in Cusco, this place was... More

Great casual dining vibe and excellent interpretation of authentic Peruvian ingredients. We were a party of 5 that walked right in during the middle of the afternoon for lunch. The food is delicious, albiet a but rich as seems to be the case with Andean cuisine.

We had our best meal in Cuzco at this restaurant. Service is great and ingredients were top notch -- very fresh. Make sure to get a reservation.

We've just been at Chicha's and we must say albeit being reasonably satisfactory we expected more of it. Food was tasty, deserts were good (go for the chocolate and you won't regret it) yet the wine list was short in Peruvian wines and it was somehow shocking given this is a "All Peruvian" kind of stablishment, or at least we...

My second day in Cusco found this great place to eat. It was only a party of two so no reservation needed, wait staff made u feel at home. Located in the heart of shopping area. Gaston Acurio is my new favorite Chef.

We came here without a reservation (group of 4) and chose to wait for 15 minutes to see if there were any no-shows (this seems to be quite common) and were seated. The food was delicious. The stuffed peppers are delicious but spicy. The corn tortillas were also memorable. I think our group's favorite was the chocolate bomb dessert which... More

This is one of Gaston Acurio's wonderful restaurants and it certainly does not disappoint. Th ambience is quite simple--rustic and warm, not at all pretentious. Kind of like dining in an elegant farmhouse. And the food is just perfect. The best soup I have EVER tasted was the Cream of Mushroom, which would seem like it would't be such a... More

Gaston Acurio has to be one of my favorite chefs. The cuisine is always inventive, yet delicious and un-pretencious. Chicha did not disappoint. The trout ceviche was the best ceviche I've ever had. The dessert was incredible (we ordered dishes we had never tried before, with ingredients that were new to us). We mixed the menu to include beef and... More
