It is the only gourmet restaurant of typical local food. We do not make fusion style. Located in the old palace of the Inca Tupac Yupanqui, we have vegetarian options. In Deva you can found the ancestral cuzco culture through its gastronomy. It is atended by its own owners. We have different Peruvian wines and piscos, and you can enjoy, if you wish so, the traditional "chicha de jora", drink that the Incas offered to the Sun in the Inti Raymi

My friend and I went to this restaurant, she took a ceviche, it was good, but I took a guinea pig, this wasn't delicious, it was a bit dry and salty. Also i could see some people inside the kitchen when my dish was being cooked, they weren't the cooking staff, they were other guests from the table next to... More

It's not easy to get some typical peruvian food with english information (it would be alright if you can speak español) but this restaurant was good to do so. I was by myself and there was no customer except me. And waitress and the owner were very kind to me. They were really nice and explained some peruvian typical food... More

It was our first night in Cusco and we wanted to try the local food. Our guide recommended Deva. The staff was terrific - very friendly, accommodating, and informative. They even allowed us to see the guinea pig cooking in the kitchen. Very cool!

At the hotel reception we were adviced to visit this restaurant. And we really liked it, so we went back there several times. They offer Peruvian food. Alpaca steak and Guinea Pig are something I would recommend. Service is attentive, they will explain everything you want to know. Location is very central. There is no need for reservation. Everytime we... More

This was a nice surprise to us. The restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide, and we decided to give it a shot as we wanted to try some local cuisine. The restaurant is located near the cusco center, but it might be a bit hard to figure out at first. For those of you who decide to... More
