Delicious Food and Fantastic hospitality

One of the best restaurants in cusco. The guinea pig as well as the alpaca were to die for. The owner Luciano is such a nice man that takes great pride in his restaurant. We got there an hour before they opened but he was nice enough to open up early for us. He was constantly making sure we were... read more

It took me and my friend some time to find the place since the address on trip advisor was wrong but with help from some locals we found it. It was very cozy and our waiter, Lucian, was so nice and funny. The Cui was very good as well as the chicken kebab and avocado salad. Highly recommended!

I didn't personally like cuy, but not because of the preparation. This is definitely the best looking cuy I saw in Peru and the place you need to try it, it takes about an hour to cook the guinea pig, so ensure that you have a little time. It's very clean and had some of the friendliest service we got... More

Clean, nice environment. Luciano the owner is very passionate and made us feel very comfortable while waiting for the cuy. Beautiful presentation and plenty of food for 2 people with decent appetites. After the meal Luciano gave us an liqueur.

Best place to have cuy. We didn't want to adventure and get cuy from the street. Takes about 1 hour to cook though. Food is very tasty and price is reasonable. Clean inside and staff is friendly.

I was recommended this restaurant by my hotel owner, a man who's lived here for 20 years. It's a little out of the way and they don't take credit cards but don't be discouraged. You will not regret it. The restaurant has great ambience, food incredible, and the service was excellent. The plating alone is worth going!!!

We’ve been exploring Cusco all day, and I’m so tired I can barely keep my eyes open, but I felt I had to write this review (my first ever) this evening. We just had one of the best meals we’ve ever had. Deciding which was better though, the service or the food, is an impossible task. KusiKuy has an excellent... More

If you are in Cusco and want to try cuy (and who doesn't?) this is the place to go to. Luciano and his small team are extremely helpful and nice. Food is delicious and the place is very clean. A visit to Kusikuy will surely become one of the highlights of your stay in Cusco.

This is the place to go to try Cuy. That's why we heard about it and why we went there. Order the cuy ahead of time by phone because it takes an hour to cook. Now, the review. The owner was the one that seated us and took our order and he was very fun to talk to. He doesn't... More
