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.

Great food, great service

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful meal here our first night in Cusco. We had an appetizer (chicken with sesame seeds, potatoes, avocado, peppers, and olives) which was beautifully plated and tasted great too! He had an alpaca steak and I had the lomo saltado. Both were great! I would highly... read more

Our concierge recommended this spot and it was definitely a good choice. We went around 1pm and were able to grab a seat on the rooftop, which we had all to ourselves. The staff was extremely friendly and gave good food suggestions. My buddy and I were looking to get adventurous with our choices- Ginny pig al pacca very tasty!!!!!... More

My husband and were looking to go to cicolina down the road and saw this on the way. We ventured the couple of flights to get to the rooftop terrace for 5pm just as the sun was setting. The view and the lights at night from this location is absolutely beautiful. The staff were beautiful, kind and very attentive. We... More

As usual - looking for a trip advisor recommendation that google could not find and walked past here recognising the name (I had read the reviews previously and decided to avoid - but you cannot remember everything). Same criticism. What is the point of serving good food from a kitchen 10 feet away at best luke warm. They forgot the... More

our team went to this restaurant at the recommendation of our hotel and we found it to be the best restaurant in Cusco in our opinion. The dishes were plated beautifully and the food was delicious. We would all recommend this place to anyone wanting good food and great atmosphere.

We had dinner here on Saturday 2nd May...based on previous reviews, we were really looking forward to it. Perhaps it was just one of those nights- all restaurants will have them- but our dinner was just really, really poor... The good point first...the Quinoa Soup was really nice. But no better than the quinoa soup that every single restaurant in... More

Came here for lunch. The restaurant is on the second floor above some kind of artisanal shop but there's a small sign that points you in the right direction. Unfortunately I did not get to sit on the terrace because it was full (but I heard it's lovely), but I got to sit right in front of the kitchen where... More

The food and service here were excellent, and the prices were reasonable given the quality of food and service. My wife and I ate there the night before our trek to Machu Picchu. Our trekking guide told us not to eat at any restaurant that might get us sick. We had no stomach problems after eating here.

This one was our best meal in Cusco. A bit overprice for Cusco standards, but it was definitely worth the trouble. A great mix of Peruvian food with some Western influences. The drinks were also very good and they have a terrace view to die for.
