Great food and INCREDIBLE music!

A tip from a local led us to this low-key restaurant- We enjoyed a very good dinner but the performance after was really a highlight. It was traditional afro-peruvian music and had the entire joint jumping. Highly recommended!

Petite and located on a strategic location of Cusco, Baco restaurant is open for lunch and dinner with a great menu and wine list. Creative cooking, simple but special, is a nice place to hang out for a good meal. Very well recommended.

Went on our first night in Cusco and it was a great way to start the trip. The waitress was extremely helpful- suggested not drinking any alcohol to avoid any altitude sickness. Suggested great light dishes- roasted vegetables, salads. The rest of the menu looked great too. Same owners as Cicciolina.

Fantastic service and a great cozy place to enjoy a good glass of wine and delicious typical tapas. Their home-made bread and pizza were the highlights of our dinner on a cold Cuzco night. They also carry a large selection of South American wines. Highly recommended!

We ate there on our last night in Cusco, having eaten at two good, lively restaurants on the previous two nights. Our experience here wasn't helped by the fact that we were the only two people in quite a large restaurant. Neither of us felt especially hungry, so we shared a barbecued meat platter to start. It was ok, but... More

Same as sister restaurant Cicciolina, it was great. The pisco cocktail was amazing and the food was awesome. It’s better to have a reservation since its usually busy.

We returned from the Inca Trail needing good food, great drinks, comfort and attentive service. We got it here. My friend and I split the wild mushroom pizza as well as the blue cheese bacon pizza. It was great. The wine was also fantastic as were the Pisco Sours. The service is definitely on Peruvian time but we didn't care,... More

We ended up at Baco twice after trying to get into their sister restaurant Cicciolina which was always too busy. The service was excellent - lovely friendly waiteress - and the food is just delicious. Be careful - their Pico sours are doubles - and addictive!

The experience in Baco overall was disappointing. The food was nothing but fair, average food for Cusco. The food came out quick, the wine list was okay but my issue with the visit came at the end. I was charged a bottle of wine instead of a glass and charged double drinks instead of one. Coincidence? On top of it... More
