We ate here for lunch and had the ceviche, lamb burger and curry alpaca. Everything was amazing! The drinks were great too. One of our favorite meals we ate in Peru!

I'm so glad we made it here before our flight! We only had a small sample of the food, but it was spectacular. Quinoa salad was refreshing and bursting with flavor. Lamb burger was quite tasty and cooked to perfection. Tamal-- we ordered twice--it was so good. Fresh cocktails were a great touch. Try the Cusco Mule. Service was very... More

We loved this place. Great food. I had the Kapchi. It was not very appetizing looking, but it was quite tasty, and quite unlike anything I have had before. The empanadas were indeed quite good, though I wish there had been a vegetarian option. But the dessert....was to die for. Service was attentive but not fawning. Atmosphere was warm and... More

We ate here our first day and enjoyed it so much we came back again even though there were many more places to eat in the area.

We went for a late lunch (around 4 pm) so the restaurant was almost empty. The decor and atmosphere are excellent, unique art on the walls, beautiful plates, everything reflects the Peruvian culture in an upscale but simple manner. The service is outstanding too. We ordered the "Trio of Empanadas" and it was to die for. I highly recommend the... More

We picked this place just because it was convenient and ended up being an awesome experience. We sat by the window and we had a beautiful view. The place was not busy so our food came out right away, Everything was just delicious and the service was excellent.

Well decided to eat at this restaurant based on recommendations from both our driver and hotel... The ambiance isn't amazing to be truthful... the lighting is too bright. The service was however right on and no bad comments possible:/) Had the tuber appetizer which was very filling and well bland but then again what else do you want from potatoes?... More
