Description: This restaurant is INCREDIBLE!! They have an amazing mix of American, European, even African/Indian foods with traditional Peruvian mixes/accents. The decor is enough to make anyone fall in love with this locale alone. I found it because it was featured in the new edition of Lonely Planet and the food and drinks are to die for. It was by far my favorite restaurant in Cusco; I even went there twice! Absolutely delicious.

Came here for dinner because of the roof terrace... It was closed but we still had a nice meal. Great alpaca tenderloin & saltada.... Hummous starter was odd....wouldn't have it again. Big portions, good service

Hands down the best food you will find in Cusco! Lots of peruvian influence - great quinoa soup and lots of tender, tasty alpaca dishes. We ate here twice and were so impressed with their flavours and service. This is a 5 star meal, at a modest price! Eating here was one of our Cusco highlights - don't miss out!

We went here as our friends had found it, and arrived to find the place packed to the rafters. I spoke to the server who warned us of an hour wait for food, but we were seated at a table and brought cocktails and nibbles while we waited. As soon as we sat down, a party of about 20 came... More

Come here to try Peruvian dishes. The drinks are good and the service is excellent. There is rooftop seating to boot. I had the potato and aji cream soup, which was delicious. Our server recommended papas rellenas (stuffed potatoes with stewed chicken or beef) which also were tasty. You should book ahead during peak times.

The food was as good as the service: AMAZING! A great place to eat peruvian food with a fusion twist, great ambience. The service was perfect, everyone including the owner is interested in making it a beautiful culinary experience. I recommend this restaurant 100%!

The food, service, and roof top view is second to none. Try the avocado, shrimp, and pomegranate appetizer... Words cannot begin to describe how incredible it is!

This place deserves 5 stars just for the starters. So imaginative, creative and delicious! Prepare for a log read of the menu, it takes ages to choose what to have! Lovely atmosphere too, cool place!

This Peruvian-fusion restaurant has an innovative menu, with a broad selection of cocktails that you can enjoy on their rooftop at sunset for maximum memorableness. Their smoked trout causa with a miso mayonnaise was probably the best dish I had in the whole trip, and the Rocoto Picoso piscotini complemented it perfectly. Highly recommended!

If you want to try where modern Peruvian food is at look no further. This place has a great casual but classy vibe and the food is superior whilst showcasing local ingredients. We had a duck prosciutto for entree and alpaca with hot chilli / quinotto for main. All our dishes were unique, rich and tasty. I hadn't liked the... More
