This was a nice treat. You can trust these folks and their food preparation. They serve your food on a hot sizzling skillet and it was a great meal. They speak great English and are ready to accommodate. It's a bit pricey but a nice treat. The indoor seating is nice and warm which isn't always the case at all... More

I never return to the same restaurant 4 days later but this place makes my mouth water. Everything was delicious and service could not be better. Prices were very reasonable for such fine dining. I recommend to everyone every age.

We went here for our first night in Cusco and it spoiled us for the rest of the trip as we never had meats as tender and delicious anywhere else. We tried the steak, lamb, and alpaca, all served on a sizzling lava stone. It's making my mouth water just thinking about it. The servers were attentive, but could have... More

I agree with everything others have already said. We went as a family of four and I offer this advice: the appetizers are fabulous! We just ordered two "meat plates" as entrees to share between the four of us (2 adults and two teenagers) and went heavy on the apps apps. By doing so, you get to try lots of... More

Had dinner here with my husband in July while touring South America. There usually comes a point when travelling for many weeks when sitting in a restaurant, trying yet another thing (and perhaps being disappointed) and going through all the motions simply becomes tiring. You miss home-made food. You miss your own kitchen and your own, perfect and tasty creations.... More

I don't write as many restaurant reviews as I used to, because I feel that I experience so little in one visit that writing a review is ultimately futile. However, since I had my best meal of 2014 in Uchu Peruvian Steakhouse last week, it's incumbent upon me to write this review so that you all go to Uchu too!... More

This place is awesome. Atmosphere is good, blah, blah, blah. The food is amazing! Visitors from abroad should let this restaurant show them how good alpaca can be! Tastes great! Hot stones cook top quality cuts of meat to perfection. And, by the way, what a bargain. This meal in the states would be three times the price!

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we secured a reservation at Uchu, a highly-reputed Peruvian steak house just up the hill from Plaza De Armas in Cusco on the Saturday of the long Peruvian independence-day weekend. Uchu is located in a small courtyard on Calle Palacio up the hill a few short blocks from Plaza De Armas. The restaurant is on... More

We had a grata meal at Uchu steakhouse. The alpaca steak is amazing: juicy, tender, just perfect! We also had the marinated beef kebab, which was also lovely. The sauces and sides that come with the meats are delicious. I particularly loved the sweet potato mash. The staff are very friendly and the restaurant is nice. If you want excellent... More

Great steak here served impressively on a hot stone so still sizzling away. We had beef and alpacha, one smoked one unsmoked , we much preferred the unsmoked meat , but that is just taste preference. We ordered them quite rare and this was good as they continue to cook on the hot stone so you can then cook them... More
