Finding the restaurant inside an ordinary courtyard, behind air drying laundry and kids playing was a surprise. The restaurant is mostly frequented by locals and few well informed tourists. Food is very good, and portions are very generous.

Since I was tired of finding in Cusco only 'american style' restaurants I asked around where to have real Peruvian food and many people suggested La Chomba. The menu is plenty of heavy meat dishes, like chicharones. The food is quite good. The atmosphere very nice, with music and friendly waiters, really helpful to suggest what to eat and drink....

Our best dining experience in Cusco! We came here for lunch on a Saturday. The place was packed with local families having a great time. Seating consisted of 2-dozen or so long picnic tables and benches, and the entire menu was on a small chalk board. It offered sheep and goat (ribs and shoulder) fried or in soup, and fried... More

I got a table with some friends and each one ordered something different to try out the peruarivian menu. We got lamb, Chuy, chicken and trucha. The waiter was nice and friendly and got out our orders fast. The food was ok, all the plates we tasted a lot of fat specially on the lamb. All the plates got a... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a tour operator when we asked him 'where do the locals eat?' We found it easily enough and entered and it was full of Peruvians with not a tourist in sight. We both ordered the chicken soup and shared a large fresh-squeezed fruit juice that was a shade of purple and came in a... More

We were advised to try it by our friend from cusco. It was so delicious we had rellenos and Tucha Frits. Rellenos being just stuffed peppers which were very nice and had a side of potatoes and the other was breaded and fried salmon with rice and potatoes. The fish was great! They also serve guinea pig for those brave... More

Yes. This is the real deal if you are willing to try something as authentical as it can get. No tourists here, just locals. As to the food... again, if you are willing to set aside your references and go for something genuine, this is the place. Now, let's keep it real, you gotta have some guts to try the... More

Before discovering the Cusquenita, I used to take all my foreign guests to the Chomba for the authentic Peruvian dining experience. It´s setting in a back ally, the un-even floors and rustic setting are perfect in my opinion. However, not all of my guests agreed, it was a little too rustic for some; too noisy, too crowded and chaotic and... More

Well worth making the effort to find. Went with my daughter and a couple of Cusquenian friends a couple of times in 2009, and I'm going back next week. It is lively, friendly, seemingly highly authentic and gives good portions. Great value. Don't go if you want tablecloths, Maitre D's etc, it is in a run down courtyard, in a... More
