From the outside, it's hard to tell that the inside decoration will be so classy and interesting. Their specialty is the Alpaca steak served at your table on a hot stone so it can continue cooking. It was excellent- I'm not always a big fan of "slabs" of meat and given how lean Alpaca is (like Ostrich if you've ever... More

... and let's face it why would you be with meat that tastes this good - this is THE place in Cusco for your meat requirements. The amount of times I've been to a steak joint and they have missed the mark on cooking times is just silly. Here it's totally up to you how you get your steak. I... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who spent 6 weeks in Cuzco, as the best steak he had in Cuzco. Coming from staying in Argentina for a whole month, I felt the beef here ok--not bad, but ok. But the alpaca and shrimp were delicious. We ordered beef anticuchos and the alpaca and shrimp from the stone. The anticucho... More

This place is worth a visit. We had the alpaca that is served on a sizzling hot stone with a choice of sauces. Absolutely delicious. The wine choice was amazing considering the location considering. Diner for two with drinks was about S/. 200. Give it a try.

When you go to a steakhouse you just want a good steak....well this is exactly what I got. Staff were friendly and spoke good English (which was nice) and I can't really fault anything. Highly recommended.

Really lovely place just two blocks off the main Plaza d'Armas. Our waiter was excellent and attentive, and the food was excellent. The lamb was extremely tender, and we discovered Papitas Rellenas - wonderful!

We liked this place so much that we went back the next night. I ordered the skewers and my boyfriend got the alpaca steak. Both dishes came out still sizzling on a hot stone slab. The stone was scolding so you could choose to let the meat continue cooking or move it onto your plate. Everything was delicious and the... More

I went to Uchu last week for a steak and I can't say anything else apart from that it was amazing. I had the chicken steak and it was cooked to perfection, supplied with 4 great sauces , the freshest salad in Cusco and some (different but delicious) peanut and chili mash. It was a romantic feeling restaurant but not... More

Went to this place because we saw the good comments on here and we weren't disappointed. Its a cool little restaurant with a nice courtyard. The service was awesome and the staff very friendly. We had shrimp bruschetta and alpaca on the hot place. It was all delicious. Cost for an entree, 2 mains and 2 sodas was 130 so... More
