“Steeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwww!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

We had just finished hiking Machu Picchu and traveling by bus and train all day, so suffice to say our stomachs were growling. As one of the best rated restaurants in Cusco, we had to try some Peruvian Stews. Everything lived up to its expectation. The coconut curry stew was a perfect blend of creaminess and spiciness, the Belize style sweet and sour stew hit all the right tangy notes, and the Andean Chile stew was earthy and filling. On top of that, the spinach and queso dip and the gazpacho appetizers were heavenly.

Overall a fantastic dining experience. Show up hungry!

“Warms you up on a cold night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

This is the perfect place to eat when you need to be warmed up from chilly Cusco. The ambiance is charming with a wood burning fireplace and candlelit tables. Go early or get a reservation- this place fills up. Especially loved the ratatouille, queso appetizer, and delicious dessert. Prices are great as well, and owner couldn't have been nicer!

“Good place for a stew”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

We made a reservation for Monday night (in rainy season) and they only had a few customers. Both of us fancied stew, based on some reviews we had read, and were not disappointed. Place has a nice ambience and staff were attentive.

“Best stew I have ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Seriously. Try the Inkazuela Carne Picante if you are ok with spicy food. It is made with beef, beans, vegetables and Peruvian spices. It is the best stew I have ever had in my whole life. Reasonably priced, of course if you add wine and appetizers you will spend a bit, but it is worth every cent. Ah -- the bread is also excellent: served warm, it is soft inside, crispy outside. Try the Dip de Quesos Andinos as well. You won't regret. Service is provided by the owner herself, and it couldn't be more friendly. I would give it six stars if I could. I'm glad I saved it for my last day in Cusco. Simply superb!

“incredible stew”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

the stew comes in big bowl and is nothing short of remarkable. yet be no mistaken, this place is WAY oriented for tourists. Nevertheless our waitress (who could have been the owner, didn't bother to ask) was behaving most familar, very good vibe if you are into that sort of thing.
