Excellent Service by Luciano! He is amazing! Great atmosphere. Food was great! and shared a Cuy between the 4 of us. We went there for dinner after a long tour to the Southern Valley. We didn't realize it was a cash only place and we came back to pay for the meal in a matter of minutes -- we stayed... More

This is why I like tripadvisor. Finding a small off the beaten track place like this: great home cooking, super friendly service. Lomo saltado is huge and excellent, the lamb cutlets huge and juicy. Pisco sours are creamy and sweet with a dash of cinnamon on top. Awesome.

We ordered their Loma saltado and the Guacamole. Both were out of this world. We came back a second night and had the same dishes. Service is super friendly and atmosphere is warm.

A fantastic dinner. The owner, Luciano, comes out and checks on everyone. We had Papa a la Huancaina, Lomo Saltado, Troucha al Huacatay. We made 2 visits both wonderful.

Authentic meal - order the guinea pig in advance and enjoy a Pisco sour while you wait. Alpaca and lamb also enjoyed.

We ordered the cuy al horno (roasted guinea pig) and trucha a la plancha (grilled trout). Both meals were delicious. The trout had a brilliant flavour and sauce. This was my first guinea pig so I can't compare; but I can say it was very tasty and had a fez made of vegetables, what else could you want? Luciano and... More

We usually never try the same restaurant twice in the same city but this is the exception. It's bliss. We tried almost all the restaurants in the TOP 10 on trip advisor in the 7 days in Cusco. This is the best one. Try the roasted guinea pig (cuy) and the alpaca steak!

We enjoyed this place so much that we stayed for hours and tried many dishes. I especially liked the giant, stuffed avocados and the fruit pancakes (crêpes). The owner is a friendly and chatty guy who was fun to meet. The building is a very old one, historic and fascinating. Really great memories made here.
