Great quality. I would definitely go back. Good service. However, please take into account that the dishes are quite large. For instance, Pizza courses are ok for 2 but too much for one if you are not starving.

High quality food. Great service. Good value. They offer Peruvian dishes as well as continental. We didn't try the vino due to the altitude sickness LOL

We came here last minute thanks to the recommendations from our taxi driver. We had passion fruit cocktails that were delicious, mixed ceviche that made me lick my fingers and a scrumptious Cordero plate that we both ended up sharing. We ended up saving room for their dessert and decaf cappuccino that we loved as well. We had great service... More

We found the food to be very good and tasty. The service was attentive, efficient and friendly. Atmosphere was lively and happy in a very busy restaurant.

This restaurant was highly recommended to us and was a huge disappointment. We had to wait like ten minutes to get a table, and were kind of excited about this because you know what they say, "A crowded place has to be really good." Well, this is not the case. Once we got our table the waiter took 25 minutes... More

Our booking at Chicha came as a very pleasant surprise during our tour of Peru! I was hoping we would try one of Gastón Acurio's restaurants but it was not explicitly mentioned on our program and boy was I happy when I found out that our first dinner in Cusco would be there. The whole experience lived up to our... More

We really felt welcome by the host. They serve very tasteful local dishes and they're big. Service not quite up to par with Chicha in Arequipa but still ok. A good night out.

The restaurant had great local food wonderfully prepared. We expected to pay a lot more for the food but it was very reasonably priced. Wish we would have had room for dessert!

Can't expect less from Gaston. Menu is based solely on local produce. Cocktails are great. Next time I'd think twice about ordering a starter and main course, as portions are deceiving so probably best to share. Definitely going back.

We ordered the tamal starter and the veal whole ossobuco to share. The starter was delicious especially accompanied by the onion salsa. The portion is generous. It could easily be a meal on its own. The veal was exceptional, in both presentation and taste. It was so good we ate in silence having run out of adjectives. It was impossible... More
