We were looking for Peruvian food in an authentic setting, not an easy task in Cusco ;-) This place is traditionally decorated and surprisingly enough not so crowded (as also mentioned in earlier reviews). Their speciality is stew which is really nice and comes along with crispy bread: takes your breath away ;-). Well recommended.

We were tired of walking, hungry on a cool night. Stumbled upon this place by accident and decided to give it a try. We were a little concerned at first. No one else in the place except us, which raises a red flag in my opinion. No menus either - only written on a chalkboard on the wall. We chose... More

Good service, nice stews and i loved the home made bread! The open fire however caused some smoke to come back into the room, which sting a little bit in the eyes.

Surprised to find the restaurant so empty, as the food was very good. I had the vegetarian stew, my husband ordered the Caribbean one. Generous portions, very good service and healthy and tasty food. Would certainly return.

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
