“Geared toward tour groups”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This restaurant seems geared toward large tour groups. The food was ordinary at best, service fine, the band okay but loud--there are much better places to eat in Cusco.

“This is a restaurant you do not want to miss in Cusco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

The food is served buffet style with a vast selection of delicious dishes. The restaurant is very crowed at supper time so a reservation is in order. It is extremely popular with tour groups. You are welcomed with a Pisco Sour served exactly correctly not too sweet as some are. There are about 6 to 8 different deserts on the buffet. I just had to try a little of each. They were all good. You will be entertained by a Peruvian band while you are there, but the music is extremely loud.

“Wonderful trout, fabulous location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

We were looking for a place on the square that seemed like it would have good food in addition to a great view, and we lucked out. The trout ceviche was sensational, in a great sauce. The buffet looked nice but we wanted to go lighter. Recommend sitting on the balcony, of course.

“Great location overlooking Plaza de Armas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

This restaurant has arguably the best location in town. With a balcony on the second floor you get great views overlooking the central Plaza de Armas and beyond. The food is good, we had some Peruvian dishes from the menu as we were not interested in the buffet. Loved the trout.
