Small and cozy, Yaku is a great spot for grabbing some dinner. We had the alpaca burger, along with some exquisite quinotto. Presentation was impeccable, and the food was really good, they really paid attention to detail. Staff is calm and very friendly, and will...gladly guide you through their menu.More

Moses, the owner, greetest us with a smile and warmth rarely seen or experienced in restaurants. The detailed knowledge of where their local, fresh, organic food comes from is second to none. The service is impeccable and friendly and professional. Moses provided excellent suggestions and...was able to provide a personal experience we've never had before. The food was the most flavourful, unique, and gorgeous I've ever had. True works of art by the chef's. The price is extremely reasonable and I don't hesitate in saying it is the top restaurant in Cusco.More

Hands down the best food I’ve had in Peru. From the flavors to the presentation to the service. Top notch. Rudolph was wonderful in serving us. We’ll be returning here tomorrow to try other dishes:)

My friends and I were visiting Cusco for the day and we decided on this restaurant based on the reviews, which I thought could not live up to it but I was wrong. This was a top notch experience in all aspects. The service was...amazing, our server made it his mission to ensure we had an amazing experience and the food was outstanding. The alpaca burger was the perfect balance of savory and juicy without being too greasy. One of the best burgers I've had. My friend also had the vegan burger and I had a couple bites and it was also amazing! Overall 10/10 experience.More

The alpaca burger was the best hamburger I’ve ever had. It came with homemade potato chips and was plated beautifully. The service was impeccable too. The server and owner took time to explain the elements of the dish and recommended a sauce to go with...it. The prickly pear lemonade was refreshing too. 5 star experience at budget-friendly prices. You won’t regret a meal (or two) here.More
