Spent a fantastic couple of hours here while traveling alone through Cusco. Luciano was a great host, who chatted casually and made great appetizer reco's (quinua soup was great). The cuy was tasty. Finally, the decor of the place makes you feel really comfortable- it's got a rustic feel while featuring some really great modern paintings from local artists.

If you're planning to have some Guinea pig in Cuzco, then go to Kusikuy, it's nicely presentated on your plate first and then they chop up the meat. Lovely taste ! We went in the afternoon, almost no other clients, so very quiet and peaceful. The owner of the restaurant had all the time for us, and was even quite... More

Came here to try cuy. It takes an hour in the oven, we had (terrific) guacamole while waiting. Good idea might be to share the cuy between two people because we hardly touched our other main (a shame because it was really good alpaca). Luciano our charming waiter made us feel at home instantly. He was proud explaining about the... More

When we first arrived, the ambience was the first thing that captivated our hearts. The restaurant is beautiful with old stones and ancient decorations inside. The place is very clean and with good light. The service was amazing as well, the owner showed much appreciation to the customers. We tried the cuy and it was an awesome experience. Best restaurant... More

The sweet lady at the front sat us at our table and we weren't sure what to expect, she warned us it takes about an hour to freshly prepare a roasted guinea pig wait but it was well worth the wait. The presentation was excellent and the flavor to follow was like no other. Definately a delicious,fun and friendly experience.... More

We went here from our Ecopackers hostel in search for some cuy... And boy we found the right place! The host was extremely nice and serviced our table throughout the long meal. The bread and salsa is outstanding and the cuy... Well it is guinea pig... The presentation was great with the knowledge you want to take the pictures and... More

We ate here for our last dinner in Peru and it was great! A wonderful decor and ambiance to celebrate the conclusion of our trip. The butter is INCREDIBLE and the tamales are a must get.

After reading amazing reviews about this place, i was thoroughly disappointed. The cuy (guinea pig) was served warm rather than hot. Not sure if the restaurant is to blame, but it wasn't very good. The Pisco sour was also disappointing. Still hungry after the main course, we decided to order a salad, which turned out to be even more disappointing... More
