This place was recommended by our guides and there seemed to be mostly tourists in there but the food was delicious and the service was good. I highly recommend the Chocolate Balloon for desert. It is centrally located and very easy to find on the second floor.

Hard to compare vs other fine Peruvian restaurants: we only ate here. But food was very good -- especially the appetizers. We had Empanada Trio, Ceviche, Grilled Octopus. Main courses were less notable -- although that might be b/c we had only a Spanish menu to work with when we ordered the mains. Overall, portions were big; second night we... More

We have visited this as a family and particularly liked the chicken served with grilled veggies! A bit pricey but worth to try

Good main courses; service was a bit slow. Recommended but it felt a bit empty. I enjoyed some of the more mundane but local places more.

We've dined at many of Gaston's restaurants in Lima and decided to try Chicha in Cusco. While the lomo saltado was as good as the dish in Tanta or Panchita (Lima), the ravioli was flavorless. Service was not extraordinary.

We are San Fran foodie family and we were so looking forward to Gaston cuisine!! Hate to report that we were extremely disappointed, we combo appetizer, lamp chop, fried pork and lomo saltado and every single dish is way way salty. Service was slow (we had reservations), took them 5 min to come take our drinks order, then another 10... More

After finishing the Salkantay Trek, we decided with a couple of friends to treat ourselves with the famous Chicha. We were welcomed with nice little hot purples buns, but the service was rather slow. Our plates were quite decent (Pachamanca, Cordero, and Lechón croquante) but nothing overwhelmingly good for the price we paid. Good but a bit overpriced in my... More

We tried chicha Gaston's restaurants in Cusco as well in Arequipa and this has been really a great experience for us, the food is great, the location are both really good ones and the service is really acurate, not miss it if you visit Peru
