We had dinner twice in this place and it was amazing! The Cuy al Horno was so delicious and so nicely prepared by Luciano and his crew. We also tried Alpaca and it was extremely tasty, something completely different compared to what we knew from other trips so far! You should definitely visit Kusikuy when you are around Cusco and...

I went here with a friend because we wanted to try Cuy (70 soles). We also got Papas Rellanas (35 soles) and both dishes were absolutely delicious. Our server and the owner stopped at our table to show us how to eat the cuy and were both extremely friendly. The atmosphere was cozy and I liked that it wasn't directly... More

We had dinner here on our last night in Cusco, couldn't leave without trying cuy! The restaurant is away from the main plaza but worth the walk. Once inside it's a really nice, relaxing environment which is good because the cuy takes 1 hour to prepare. We relaxed with some drinks and a starter and the time flew by. One... More

Excellent service, the location is unique, not in the tourist zone but short walk away from the main square. We had the cuy, based on the prev review, not disappointed. Luciano our waiter explained everything very well, provided a perfect service.

We went to Kusikuy for lunch to try cuy. Luciano was very friendly and had good advice in respect of the quantity of food we ordered. The cuy was good, even if it was not to everyones taste. But this had nothing to do with the quality of the food. The grilled alpaca, chicken and the guacamole as a starter... More

Arrived here on a Friday evening around 6.00. Restaurant was quiet as thats early for most people. Luciano was the waiter that showed us to a table in a nice cosy back part of the restaurant. He was friendly and recommeneed some dishes on the menu. We ordered Aji de Galiina and Alpaca Steak with quinoa and potatoes. Before the... More

Without TripAdvisor we would never find this interesting place which deserves a visit if you are in Cusco for more than one day. The waiter is very attentive and kind. The Gaugamela very good with a very hot Salsa. The cuy (which you must try) is easily shared by two and a great experience even though once in your lifetime... More

Luciano and the young lady assisting him were excellent hosts. The service was very friendly and they put a lot of effort into explaining the dishes and making sure we were happy. The food was excellent! We had guacamole, alpac a la plancha, cuy al horno, and pollo a la plancha. Every dish was well cooked and seasoned with excellent... More
