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!

“This is the real deal!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Very nice, friendly lady with some mean cooking! This is as close to having a real Peruvian home cooked meal as it ever gets. Get there early and with plenty of time to socialize, because there are only 5 small tables and she doesn't start cooking until you order your food, so it is fresh and the wait is well worth it. Her kids help out too, so this is like spending some time at a real Peruvian family's home as a guest. Her prices are really cheap. You can't get a better deal anywhere.

If you try one place in Cusco before you leave, you must try this place. You will not be disappointed.

“Real Peruvian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The best Lomo Saltado, Aji de Gallina and the rest. owner and chef walks around saying hello to everyone with a smile and amazing attitude. She will expand pretty soon because there are only 5 small tables there.
I have one more day in Cusco and I can't wait to go again.

“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.

“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!
