Description: Enjoy the delights of a gourmet menu that helped Alma become recognized by Summum (a Peruvian restaurant guide) as one of the Best Hotel Restaurants in Cusco. The restaurant is full local flavors, from the succulent Andean minestrone made of the best vegetables of Cusco’s pantry to the main dishes like pastas and rice, river fish, beef, lamb and alpaca are inspired by the Andes, yet he also includes seafood, chicken and duck.

I got the steak that was good. My wife got the Alpaca tenderloin and it is a must eat. We still talk about the... More

Ate her two times for dinner and both were excellent. The trout ceviche is amazing. The attention to details in the matching flavors and fusing traditional Andean ingredients with modern twist was on point. The Andina sours are off the hook too.

This was one of our favorite dinners in Peru. I had beef tenderloin with polenta. It was really flavorful and the dining room was quiet and beautiful. As we were staying in the hotel where the restaurant is located, we had 3 breakfasts ther which were also excellent.

We spent a really nice evening at this place, good wine and a nice selection of dishes with local ingredients and meats. The trout was divine and the native potatoes were delicious.

I won't say this unless i mean it, "Alma" the restaurant inside the casa Andina private collection hotel in Cusco has one of the best foods I ever ate in my whole life. We stayed at Casa Andina Korincancha ( one block away from Casa Andina private collection) and since we didn't have any reservation in any good restaurant we... More

Fantastic food. Really romantic dinner. Top notch service. Their coca pisco sour was the best I had in Peru. Their alpaca tenderloin was the best I had in Peru. Their potato soup was the best I had in Peru. We almost missed this restaurant, in the Casa Andina Private Collection where we were staying. Thankfully the hotel manager offered us... More
