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.

Best meal I've ever had!

Wow what an experience. My friend and I went here and we could go past having the Alpaca with mango chutney and yellow peppers. I would have to go as far as saying this was one of the best things I have ever eaten. Your mouth waters with every mouthful. We also had a beautiful bottle of Chilean red... read more

Our concierge recommended dining here. The service was great and the food was excellent. Best dish hands down was the chicken quesadilla - stuffed with chicken, cheese, salsa and spicy beans on the side - the tortilla is flour & quinoa - yum, kept stealing bites off my daughter! I was feeling the effects of the high altitude and the... More

Amazing food and great atmosphere. Dishes are huge and really creative. I'm Peruvian and it was one of the absolute bests I've ever had anywhere in Peru. Great value as well, just make sure you make a booking specially if you're in Cusco during the high season. A++

Casual but very nice, we had the smoke trout causa (5/5), alpaca tenderloin (5/5 beautiful presentation) and aji de gallina (3.5/5). We had a great time with very tasty food, big portions and cold beer. I would come back any time. They also have a cooking class.

Not only my parents favorite restaurant in Cusco but one of their favorites around the world. And I quote, "perhaps one of the best meals I've ever had." Again, "outgragouesly cheap for a gormet meal of that quality [US $19 each]." We also ate at both the #1 and #2 restaurants in Cusco, and my parents couldn't fathom how they... More

We had a 4 hour class with great food, laughs and instruction in Peruvian food and culture. Jose made it a great day for the whole family. We prepared ceviche, Lomo Saltado and learned to mix several Pisco drinks.

Probably the best meal I had in Peru. The alpaca was outstanding, as were all of the sides. Good atmosphere - all the larger groups seemed to be having a great time. I ordered the alpaca entree with the mushrooms (a must), and a martini, and felt like I got a pretty good bang for my buck. The only reason... More

Our G Adventures guide highly recommended this restaurant and we were happy he did. The food was very good and the service excellent. I had a generous portion of Alpaca filet which tasted like veal. Our clients all ordered different food and were happy with their orders. Go upstairs to the roof for an AMAZING view of Cusco by night.... More
