Besides the delicious Peruvian meals they serve, they also create a great 'ambiance' with their extraordinary Inka-decor and the Peruvian musicians who come and play in their restaurant.

The atmosphere was jovial, with traditional music and Peruvian costumed hostess! Best cuy/roasted guinea pig, and the best part is you can share the dish for two people. They would bring it out with the decoration et all. Afterwards, they will separate them into two...More

We had a fantastic meal. We ordered a couple different entrees of alpaca, shrimp diablo and mixed seafood soup. All the meals were excellent. The service was very attentive but let us relax and enjoy the meal.

A very nice place to eat traditional and local food. The Chupe de Quinua was delicious and so was the courtesy drinks and appetizers (Maracuya Sour and Choclo con Queso). The service is also standing, the waiter did everything to make us feel comfortable and...More

This restaurant does not deserve its current rating. Super slow service, mediocre local drinks and overpriced. Having live music for a bit was a plus but the food was very underwhelming. There are better options in Cusco. Don’t waste your time or money.
