Excellent Dinner in a Charming Spot

Our first night in Cusco, it was pouring rain, so we wanted dinner somewhere near our hotel. Also, as it was our first day at the high altitude, our Peruvian friends had advised us to have a light meal, no meats, etc. Our adult daughter found Sara on Trip Advisor, so off we went!

in Cusco Peru in the old city there are hundreds of restaurants to choose from but this one caught our eye because it was Organic. A short walk from the main square and our hotel We decided to try it and were very impressed with their menu selections along with their pricing. Linen table clothes and napkins for both lunch...

The place is nice and quirky & the food is good, but thats where it ends. My wife and I were the only customers in the joint (not exagerating) and the service took what seemed like forever. The food isn't good enough to compensate for the slow service. Friendly staff

We found Sara while staying at the Marriott. We were hoping to find a restaurant that served organic salads and Sara's was the perfect choice. This restaurant is less than a block from the Marriott in Cusco and was a nice surprise. We had the Cuy starter, a salad, and the Alpaca entrée to share between the two of us... More

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

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
