A very good steak house with great service and nice atmosphere in the charming San Blas neighborhood. We had a bottle of the Casa Silva Carmenere red wine, restuffed potato and trout ceviche appetizers, and a main course of beef and alpaca filet with shrimp, served on their hot plate. Struggled to finish this big delicious meal!

The three meats served on a hot stone are the signature dish here. Simply delicious. Wine list is decent too. You will enjoy it.

Great meal at this restaurant. The appetizers and salad were incredible, and the main courses were good too. If you get steak (I had alpaca tenderloin, wife had beef tenderloin kabobs), do as others have suggested and take it off the stone quickly if you'd like it rarer, or leave it on for more well done. Would have given 5... More

What a lovely way to spend a night! From the moment we were seated, Elvis, or waiter ensured we had a very enjoyable night. Menu was fully explained along with recommendations. Food, Wine and service was all flawless.

It would have been 5 stars but the service is a little slow to start. But when it started, it flowed well. They don't ask you how you want your meat cooked since they serve them on a very hot stone, rare to start and you cook it (leave it on the stone) to your liking. One thing I would... More

Went here for lunch and ordered the bruschetta, alpaca skewers, and lamb. Everything was great and was a fair price for what you get. Highly highly recommend.

I've been to dinner here twice while visiting Peru on 2 separate occasions and it's a great place to eat! The steaks are served on hot stones that cook the steak in front of you, it's cool to watch and adds to the experience. The staff were nice enough to bring out a birthday cake for me (which my friends... More

My wife and I ate here with friends we met on a Machu Picchu trek. We were excited to try the place based on the great Trip Advisor reviews. The menu was very extensive, including all the Peruvian specialties one would expect. We shared a deep fried mashed potato appetizer that was served hot, fresh out of the fryer. It... More

We were taken here by our guide who had booked a table for the 10 of us left on the tour. He recommended that we try the steaks which we all did. I had the lamb and my partner the llama. The steak is delivered on a hot volcanic rock and continues to cook at the table. The steaks were... More

Having failed to get a booking on one night we managed to get in the following night and didn't leave disappointed as Uchu lived right up to it's reputation. The food here is amazing and all 4 of us had great meals, with 1 choosing the mari-mari and 3 going for steaks. The presentation is great with the meat coming... More

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.
