Too expensive for what’s it worth, there is plenty of good options in Cusco that are local and authentic

Our desire to eat local peruvian food convinced us to walk all the way to this hidden restaurant, inconveniently located up a steep slope in Cusco. On reaching we had to wait for 15 minutes before someone noticed us standing outside in the cold and...More
