On hotel recommended Uchu and we were not disappointed. Our party of 4 arrived without a reservation, but we were able to get a table. Our waitress was friendly, but after our entrees were served, she was not very attentive (this is cultural, so no points off). Their speciality is steaks on stone, so we all ordered some version on... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here recently while in Cusco. Great ambiance, great service. We ordered a combo of beef, lamb and alpaca steaks served on hot lava stone. So amazing! Located centrally near the plaza, an easy to locate place and in a safe area. Would definitely recommend!

We eat here two times. The appetizer with the Alpaca Meat with local cheese and potato is really excellent. We had the second time two additional potato appetizers and these were also really good. It is something you have to experience. The stone grill option turned out to be excellent and their chocolate desert looks really inviting. Overall a very... More

We ate at Uchu on two occasions during our stay in Cusco. On both occasions we had their stone grill. We were given generous servings of meat including Alpaca which I really enjoyed. The restaurant is well located near the main square. The service is excellent, the menu extensive and is well priced. One of the best dining experiences of... More

I met a few folks from rafting that invited me to join them at Uchu. Loved the experience. I order the skewers and the waitress was kind to let me select two different meat. You can get it with salt and pepper seasoning or Peruvian seasoning. I chose the Peruvian to taste the flavor...if not you get just regular meat... More

This was by far the best meal we had during our stay. The owner was so welcoming and the food was awesome. The beef tenderloin is cooked at the table on a hot stone, which makes for a fun experience and the peanut potatoes are wonderful. A night to remember!

We dropped in at Uchu without a reservation so they just set us up a small table near the bar. They offer a good wine selection and great prices. We made a dinner of the appetizers.

Tucked away slightly but worth searching out. Really good, cosy, candlelit sort of place which was buzzy, busy and bustling. We had some amazing starters of papas relllenos and very very good steaks - I couldn't finish mine - Peruvian portions being what they are. Side orders of salads, about 3 different types of potatoes (and my giddy amount the... More
