Description: Enjoy the delights of a gourmet menu that helped Alma become recognized by Summum (a Peruvian restaurant guide) as one of the Best Hotel Restaurants in Cusco. The restaurant is full local flavors, from the succulent Andean minestrone made of the best vegetables of Cusco’s pantry to the main dishes like pastas and rice, river fish, beef, lamb and alpaca are inspired by the Andes, yet he also includes seafood, chicken and duck.

“Amazing food, romantic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2010

Fantastic food. Really romantic dinner. Top notch service. Their coca pisco sour was the best I had in Peru. Their alpaca tenderloin was the best I had in Peru. Their potato soup was the best I had in Peru.

We almost missed this restaurant, in the Casa Andina Private Collection where we were staying. Thankfully the hotel manager offered us a free meal here because of some other issues with our stay. We were so glad we took him up on the offer - it was probably the best meal we had in all of our 2 weeks in Peru.

Only complaint is that the background music was looping silent night over and over and over and over again. It was a great version sung by little spanish voices though, so it was bearable.
