Don't let the outside of this Steakhouse put you off - the steaks are delicious and the presentation and accompaniments make this a great place to enjoy a Peruvian steak dinner.

This restaurant is deliciously unique. We found it in our Lonely Planet book and were intrigued by its stone-cooked meats and ambiance. Uchu lives up to its description in the book. I ordered the Alpaca cooked and served on a stone slab. It was delicious with the peanut chili mashed potatoes. We also ordered a red wine blend that paired... More

Had to try this place, since the place is quite popular in Cusco. We weren't dissapointed, and we both had a very nice steak. The downside was, that the food took forever to arrive from the kitchen, even though the restaurant wans't half full. The food was great though.

Good ambience, with an intimist touch. The place gets easily full, so try to reservate a table, especially if you are going for a dinner. You have more than one room, so the restaurant is spacious. The starters are good, and the juices are just like other places in Peru: wonderful natural fruit made. You could go for the ceviches,... More

I contacted the restaurant a few weeks before our trip, because we were s group of 11. They were very helpful and i looked forward to our meal. Our meal was even better than i anticipated. The steaks were wonderful and very reasonable, even for Peru. The staff was very friendly, the drinks were outstanding and our meal was perfect.

Don't miss this restaurant, Katy our waitress, described the Peruvian foods, and spices, and served us with a smile. The meats were served on hot stone plates, the deserts were interesting flavor combinations. Peruvian wine complimented the meal. I'd go back tomorrow if I could.

Everything was just great! Great taste, presentation, smell, service and price. First, the olives. They were marinated and sweet. Great start. We had the cebiche. Great combination of well seasoned fish, crispy corn and sweet corn. And then, the winner of the day. Marinated alpaca. It was our first time trying it.. Wow. The taste is beyond good, well spiced,... More

I usually like to stay with traditional local food when abroad, but had heard that Uchu used all local ingredients and dishes, but then took them to a higher level. This level I would say is stratospheric. The complimentary olives, preserved to Uchu's own recipe, presented whilst we were choosing were fantastic; and I have never had a better Mojito.... More

I can only agree with the other posted reviews. Don't go there if you look for the 5$ backpacker menu. But if you want to spend 20-25$ per person eating great food from tasty soups to meat skewers on hot stone, this place is just great and highly recommended. I would definitely go again if i find myself in Cusco.... More
