Not wild about it

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... read 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

Beautiful delicious food (my girl had a salad with goat cheese, I had a steak with spinach ravioli), very important: good music and not too load like most places... And the interior has great taste. Enjoy this place

A short walk from the Plaza de Armas and our hotel this restaurant was recommended by our tour company. A good recommendation, both the food and service were very good. There is also a large selection of wine available.

Starters to share were amazing. Especially the prawns in garlic and chicken with potatoes. Mains were delicious as well with good sauces. Desert (brownie with red wine ice) was a perfect finisher.

I have been to Baco twice now. Both times I ordered the Pesto pizza and Passion Fruit Pisco punch. The Pisco punch is the best pisco drink I've had in Peru. The pizza is loaded with toppings and has a thicker crust than most pizzas I have encountered in Cusco. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere. I would call the... More
