Whilst in Peru we really struggled to find decent places to eat, with interesting menus. We visited Inkazuela's for lunch on our last day, after a recommendation from a couple who had been in Cusco a month. We were not disappointed, and left Peru on a high - THIS WAS THE BEST MEAL WE HAD WHILST IN PERU. Tastefully decorated... More

This place had a Peruvian- Caribbean fusion. Delicious and spicy stews from beef to chicken to alpaca. All different. All hot and wonderful and perfect for those cool Cusco evenings.

This place was our favorite during our visit to Cusco. The restaurant is kinda hidden and easy to miss unless you're specifically looking for it. The lady that served us was the owner and her husband/business partner was the cook. Their menu is simple: appetizers and stews. My fiance ordered a chicken curry stew and i ordered the Alpaca stew.... More

Inkazuela was probably our best meal on a 10 day trip to Peru. Expensive? No. Fancy? No. Incredibly good food? Yes. Incredibly friendly server? Yes. They do basically one type of food, a hearty local style stew in a bowl. They have about a dozen different types of stew (in addition to a few appetizers and such). Each stew was... More

Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this restaurant. My husband had a bean and shredded beef dish and suffered serious food poisoning. Good thing we had Cipro.

We are sorry to learn about the sickness your husband suffered during his stay in Cusco. However, we would like to point out that food poisoning symptoms may appear at any time between 30 minutes and 72 hours after swallowing the contaminated food. After you have spent some time in Cusco it is very difficult to identify the exact source... More

After my trek to Machu Picchu I went here for a 3-course meal that was absolutely phenomenal. Pumpkin soup? Divine. Ratatouille? Perfection. Chocolate cupcake and ice cream? Heaven sent. The prices are totally reasonable and the waiter was adorable and extremely attentive (a true rarity in South America). Just go.

The price is a little high (15-20 soles entree, 35-40 soles main dish), but it is the top restaurant i've been in cuzco, along with Inca Grill. Food is marvelously good.

It was absolutely delicious! A little bit expensive than 1$ rating of this restaurant but the food and the friendly staff worthwhile.

The concierge at Palacio del Inka recommended this restaurant, describing it as a restaurant that serves only soup. It was a chilly, wet night and soup was what we were craving. We wondered if it would be filling enough though. We decided to give it a try, thinking that if the soup wasn't filling, it would be a good excuse... More
