We ordered the mixed meat stone platter to try the alpaca (though can't really say I'm a fan). Meats were tender and flavourful though I'd recommend taking them off the stone plate almost immediately if you like your meats on the rare side. The key lime shrimp and parmesan toast and the tomato/bacon toasts were amazing! Very flavourful and wouldn't... More

After reading lots of good reviews, we decided to try out Uchu for our last night in Cusco. The food was great. We each had the steak- the plate it comes on is very cool- you can leave it on for however long you want so you get it cooked exactly as you like it! The dipping sauces were great-... More

The service, the food, the presentation were all fantastic! We went back for lunch after eating there for dinner. I also personally think they had the best pisco sours (of the several different pisco sours we tried).... Definitely try the bacon bruschetta with aguaymanto. So unique and sweet-savory delicious!

Nice decoration (you can imagine you are in a nice restaurant in Barcelona or NY) and simple menu. The meat served in stones is menu's star. All the meat we ordered was good (alpaca, beef, lamb) and it was presented in a fancy way. I can't say the restaurant is outstanding but I would recommend if you like good meat... More

We craved for meat after 2 weeks in Bolivia ... Uchu Steakhouse was exactly what we needed. It's quite touristy, but the food is great. The alpaca steak was served on a vulcanic rock, and was so tasty! The ceviche we had as starter was very good as well.

We enjoyed an early dinner here during our stay in Cusco. We loved the presentation of the food on hot stones - the meat or seafood comes out still sizzling! Our party ordered alpaca, shrimp, fish, beef & lamb. Everything was delicious. Definitely a good place to go while in Cusco!

I first visited Uchu in March of 2014... It was so good that we had to come back on our most recent trip to Cuzco! The alpaca is brought out on a hot stone and you cook it to the temperature you prefer. It's a delicious and entertaining experience especially for larger groups of friends.

Ate at Uchu on a recent trip to Cusco, and was very impressed with the food and service. My girlfriend and I shared a bruschetta, seared tuna ceviche and a steak. All the food was really well executed and some unusual combinations in there that work really well. Had a couple of cocktails to that were excellent. Best meal we... More

Description
Uchu's kitchen is inspired by classic Peruvian recipes touched with contemporary sophistication. We also play with new ingredients taking new flavors and creating unequable experiences for the palate. Carved wooden bases, volcanic stones prepared at high temperatures, an ample selection of surf and turf ítems from which to choose, native aji creams and aromatic herbs allow us to provide a unique dining experience for all. Located in a colonial home in the center of Cusco, exposed adobe walls, clay, aged wood, avant garde textiles, candles and crystals create an eclectic ambience in which to enjoy your experience.
