Wonderful hamburguer and potatoes in a amazing place. The city of Cusco has a great food and this is one of the best places.

I was with a tour group and we were taken to a very expensive restaurant for dinner. One look at the prices shocked 2 of us so we went a block away to Jacks Cafe which we had checked out earlier that day. I had been warned of queues but I guess our timing was good as we were taken... More

An excellent breakfast location away from the main plaza. Really good food portions and service. Quite a busy little cafe, and rightfully so.

Perfect place for breakfast, lunch or hangover recovery... Highly recommend the bacon and egg sandwich, on point! Looking to pay anywhere from 18-28 soles for a meal...

We had a dinner here our first night in Cusco. Had to queue around 15 minutes at the door to wait for a table but was 100% worth the wait. Big and varied menu, massive portions, range of juices/smoothies etc and great service (staff speak excellent English). Highly recommended.

Highly recommend breakfast at Jack's - just be sure to get there early as it's a small place. We enjoyed eggs, giant pancakes, french toast and breakfast sandwiches. Everything was really good - too much food for us to finish. They don't accept credit cards, so be prepared with cash.

The queue is here for a reason. It moved quickly and staff gave us menus in the queue so we could order quickly. Americana type food if you need a break from Salto Montaldo and Civiche which the kids appreciated. Handy location if you are shopping in San Blas.

This restaurant is centrally located but offers only western food. Prices are average as is the food. All tourists inside and the service was good. If you're homesick this is a good place but otherwise go somewhere else.

The food was fabulous. The service was good yes. The passionfruit smoothie I still dream of. It was not Peruvian food, at least that I remember. I remember it being "comfort food". It was very popular and busy when we went but it was so worth it :)

The food here was great, and although it was fairly expensive it was definitely worth it. Really nice atmosphere in there but make sure you're there early to get a seat!!
