This restaurant was a great find. We ordered four different dishes and shared them around the table, and they were all wonderful! We had the lamb, beef filet, trout, and "lomo soltado." They also gave us plate of little appetizers to try: corn, roasted cheese, and yuca--yum! Excellent presentation and a nice ambiance. The entrees averaged around 40 soles, which... More

We visited this restaurant after going to it's sister restaurant(Cicciolina) the night before. It's a bit off the Plaza de Armas but definitely worth finding. We had 2 wonderful meals there. My alpaca burger was wonderful. The salads and appetizers also very good. It's not nearly as busy and crowded as Cicciolina and the don't charge an extra fee to... More

Ate here twice whilst staying in Cusco, and both meals were phenomenal! I don't know why this place isn't ranked higher....! I had the beef fillet which was cooked to perfection, and my pals had the alpaca burger and chicken salad. Fabulous food, hefty wine list and not too steep a bill. Full marks Baco!

Quite possibly the best meal I've had in many years. That's saying something. We had ceviche for an appetizer, and beef filet and alpaca for entrees. Very succulent, melt in your mouth delicious. Kudos to Ronnie, you're the best! We were in Urubamba before Cusco, and ate at Tres Keros. We asked Ricardo, the owner, for a recommendation in Cusco,... More

We had the rack of lamb and filet of beef with wild mushrooms, both were very good along with the accompanying potatoes and vegetables. Before the meal arrived, we were presented with some appetizers on the house. There is a good wine selection but it is on the pricey side. Service was pleasant and attentive.

This restaurant is nearby to the JW Marriott and the other more upscale hotels in Cusco. The atmosphere and food were both very inviting. I only had a salad, but it was hearty and tasty. The remainder of our group enjoyed their meals including one who raved about the Alpaca burger.

As a vegetarian, there are not many things on this menu to choose from. I picked about the only veggie things on it however they were amazing! The salad was beautiful and the pizza was sensational. The blended wine was a perfect accompaniment.

It´s a nice cozy place which in my opinion serves one of the best salads in Cusco. Most restaurants just have one or two on the menu and often its just a heap of lettuce with a few bits and pieces of something else for 30 soles or more, which is a bit much for just greenery. My favorite salade... More

Seems to be same owner as more highly rated Cicciolina. Ate her twice as close to hotel (Maytaq Wasin). Very good peruvian food (Recommend soups and alpaca dishes) and wine. Attentive staff. Prices not the cheapest but reflected in quality.
