We scoped out this place on TA and stopped by June 27, 2013. It was replaced by Casa Qorikancha, which we decided to try. I will post a review when TA validates the new ownership.

We stopped in for tapas after touring Santa Domingo. What a joy that was. We wished we had returned for dinner. The food and atmosphere was wonderful and the presentation was lovely.

We had lunch here on our first day in Cusco. The food was outstanding, the service superior. The chocolate truffles the best we ever had. A little pricey but it was worth it

I went here on a lunchtime for tapas. I had great difficulty finding any staff and after 10 minutes of looking in every room was leaving when a waitress appeared. The tapas were very small and even for a light lunch 5 or 6 would be needed at least making it quite expensive to eat. I had a selection of... More

On a tour of Peru we went with friends on the tour to this excellent restaurant. It is not obvious from the street - you go through a doorway into a pretty coutyard, then upstairs to find the restaurant. The presentation of the food was so good, that we had to take photos before we ate. I had battered chicken... More

We ate here twice during three days in Cusco. We liked eating sitting at the bar and watching the several chefs cooking orders on an open pit behind the bar. I loved the tapas and made a meal of the daily tapa selection. A great mix of local and Mediterranean food. Great central location close to the Plaza de Armas.... More

The "cooks in the review below shouldn't be taken seriously. They didn't even stay. True there are different pairings (I had chicken and applesauce and a sherry reduction) and it was amazing. I can't even begin to describe how great of a pairing. I'm gonna try it when I get home. They take all sorts of CRedit cards. The only... More

Well decked out restaurant with an apropriate level of finery. We had the place almost entirely to ourselves and thus had excellent, but never intrusive, service. A large choice of alternatives on the menu and what we had was excellently prepared and very tasty. Definitely save room for dessert!

I went to this restaurant in Cusco because of the reviews in Tripadvisor. To be very honest, I didn't like it that much. I ordered chicken fingers with mushroom sauce and potatos. The chicken was not crispy and tasted nothing but lemon. The potatos were undercooked. Only the sauce was good. I also thought it was overpriced - I spent... More
