Wow!! Everything was delicious, including the "Cuy" ( never ever again in my life, just once...). The lamb plate was perfection and the service was amazing.

I'll start with the food, because it's outstanding and we loved everything we ordered. The trout ceviche was dynamite, and other favorites included the alpaca carpaccio and osso buco. Portion sizes are huge, mind you, so it's actually quite a good value for the price if you're sharing. We didn't have a stellar service experience, which is the only reason... More

Food was excellent, i had the shrimp stew. First server was VERY GOOD, (wish i had his name, younger guy) explained many dishes and gave recommendations. When he (clearly) didn't know about wine pairings he went to the som and found out (very professional and appreciated.) But then for whatever reason, he had to work a party or something in... More

So my mom, upon turning 70, decides to gift her "kids" with a trip to Miami, and I say hell, no if you want my kids to go somewhere, let's make it latinamerican and cultural, like say, Cusco. To wrap up her trip along with her 3 children, 4 grandchildren and assorted wives and lovers, I picked Chicha. Best possible... More

Outstanding food, great quality, great prices. We had some top notch food in Peru and Chicha stands out as a top meal. Lamb burger is superb and at s/38 it's a steal. Lomo Saltado was the best I had - topped with a fried egg and served with a side of rice it's a unique way to serve the dish.

Great food - arrived on a Thursday @ 8.20pm and had no reservations. Was able to get a seat at the Bar - which was just fine. The server, Frank, provided some good insight on the menu and made tasty suggestions - Sadly we were not able to finish our food, as we over-ordered on appetizers. Food was delicious!

Great traditional Peruvian food, excellent ambiance. We tried lomo saltado, carapulcra and the pesto noodles with apanado de carne. All were good choices! But I did not give it a complete 5 star review because I felt it was a little pricey for the type of food served and the fact that we asked 4 times for the check.

My boyfriend and I recently visited this place. I had been five years ago. We always look for Gaston's restaurants. We have visited a couple around the world, and always come out delighted. The place itself is warm and welcoming, as well as the staff. However, I wasnt impressed with the meal and they had removed my favorite, and the... More

This restaurant is Gaston Acurios traditional Peruvian fare. Excellent chilcanos and classic local dishes done elegantly. We had the Lomo Saltado and a breaded beef with noodles. All of it was amazing and the views from the balcony was beautiful right from our seats. This is must try for those visiting Cusco.
