I found this restaurant to be pricey for what it was. I wanted one of the pasta specials with wine that was advertised on their board outside, but the waiter was confused about what that was so I ended up with an ordinary pasta. It was quite tasty, but I felt the special would have been better value (maybe it... More

We arrived here to eat around lunchtime while the world cup was playing. The cafe was pretty empty but we had noticed that it was very full at dinner time on previous days, so we felt good about it. The menu boasts a local and organic cuisine. It was priced about the same as other "fancier" restaurants around the Plaza... More

If you enjoy waiting 50 mins for your drinks and getting served your food a minute before your drinks come out then this place is for you! Came here after a long day of exploring Cusco's Inka ruins.. our group was starving.. and we were hoping for a quick delicious meal. We were wrong... our food literally came out a... More

Walked past & the 5 of us liked the decor & menu. We all had different plates for lunch and we all enjoyed our meal & service. Iwhen people get a bad meal that they should say so at the time so that the restaurant can rectify it!

Interesting menu. I chose the vegetable curry which came with bulgar wheat. The sauce was tasty and the added fruit gave it a sweet flavour. My husband had a pasta dish which came with a glass of wine. I wasn't so enamoured with the desserts. The semifreddo was a little tasteless and the brownie filling rather dry. Overall it was... More

The menu outside looks promising. However, the food was really grim. My ravioli was cold and tasted BAD. The carrot sauce on top was vile. It looked and tasted like someone had thrown up on the plate to be honest :( I didn't eat any of it, but we weren't asked if everything had been ok when we paid (we... More

For the cost, pretty good. Relatively standard traveler focused restaurant, nothing stood out but all were pretty good.

We were very disapointed by the food. We took pastas but the pastas were overcooked and the sauces were done with a lot of agua. And the price is not in line with the quality!

From reading the menu it sounded like it was going to be amazing. The food was so bland I added copious amounts of salt and I felt quite seedy after it. Not even sure if it's organic to be honest.
