Description: Seledonia's Mesa is the place to be in Cusco if you want a familiar athmosphere and truly excellent local food! Lunch at Selia's (as friends call her) is a sunny and joyful experience in her warm, covered patio. And dining is like being home at a Cusco family, enjoying some of Cusco's finest dishes in a cozy athmosphere. Cooking classes are part of the experience, too: so you can take Seledonia's wonderful cuisine back home!

“Perfect Traditional Family dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

This small restaraunt provides excellent food, for great prices and completely without pretension. You really feel like the whole family is involved and all the meals are prepaired in the same room in the small seperated kitchen.

Great small family run friendly restaurant, providing top quality peruvian food. The prices are low. I was amazed at the high quality of the food; it was an absolute delight eating here.

“Good food for a great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I've been their because a friend recommended the place, when i visited the owner smiled and really welcomed you as a guest, not really a customer. The food is really good and the price is low for that kind of quality!

“Delicious Peruvian dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

For anyone interested in local food AND an authentic experience, Seledonia's definately a go..! Her small restaurant with just a few tables set in a Peruvian atmosphere, offers delicious Peruvian dishes for a good price. It's like dining in her home/kitchen, with her children walking (and helping) around: it's a warmhearthed place. For the ones who are looking for Peruvian cooking classes, Seledonia would love to have you in her kitchen! She's not only very friendly, but also helpful and a splendid cook (only Spanish speaking though). I know the Aji de Gallina and Alpaca are favorites, but I tried her menu (only S/.5) and I'm sure to be coming here again..!

“Wonderful food, lovely family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

It's like sitting in the kitchen for a family meal, lovely smells, warm cosy atmosphere, friendly kids doing their homework at a spare table. The alpaca saltada was tender and delicious. It would be great for more travellers to leave the main square to support family businesses such as this, and experience true Peruvian cuisine and hospitality.
