Wonderful meal in a comfortable atmosphere! Started with the quinoa tabouli which was fresh and perfectly dressed. Both my friend and had the trout which was served over sauted spinach and a fava bean puree. The fish was seasoned and cooked to perfection. Just delicious!! The peruvian Sauvignon Blanc on the menu was great too. Special thanks to the staff... More

Very disappointing meal at Chicha. Ordered pork tamale, roasted chicken, and wine. The chicken was incredibly dry, overcooked and bland. I've had better Peruvian chicken in the US. I'd be ashamed to serve this at home, much less at a gourmand restaurant. This place isn't worth your time or money.

The food was superb. Great service which added up to an excellent experience. The ravioli with white sauce was easily the best pasta i´ve ever had. Great wine options and entrées.

Five of us shared a very fun New Year's Eve dinner. The restaurant had music, dancers, hats, beads, etc., for the festivity. The 5-course prix fixe dinner included 3 glasses of wine (and we split another bottle for a modest added charge). My only complaint is that we had to prepay in cash (no credit card) and the transfer fees... More

Nice good quality food but simple in execution and missing the wow factor we were hoping for. Hearty chicken and lamb sharing dishes and good deserts but no standout dishes and not many vegetarian options. Great staff and wine, nice atmosphere and resonable prices but I think there are more impressive restaurants in cusco based on what we saw on... More

Was recommended by our hotel. It is upstairs and there is a downstairs restaurant that is called something else. You go to the second floor. We ordered starters of Quinoa tabouli and also pork spring rolls. We also ordered a shared main of beef stew but when the starters arrived they were so large that we canceled the beef stew... More

This is a very cozy and warm place for a nice dinner. Fusion cuisine in a modern style is the strength of this place. You have to choose well to enjoy the potencial of this place. The creator is one of the best chefs in the world, so he know what he did. Prices are from mid-little hi but few... More

It is a fancy cafeteria in Cusco. Not bad if you avoid the pizza or anything not Peruvian. Truly the worst pizza we ever had. Not even a frozen pizza on a college dorm is this bad. I have to say for Cusco is a good option , chicken dish was good and to share, portions are large. Ceramic plates... More
