We had dinner and ordered the black olive bruschetta (delicious) a Cuzqueña beer for me, and two of the main course meat dishes (shrimp and my husband, alpaca). Each meat (served on hot volcanic rock slate) meal came with a refreshing salad and some "native potatoes": like tiny crispy French fry wedges. Four interesting sauces for the meat/shellfish. Our server... More

Went here courtesy of my girlfriends mum (thanks Mav) because it was bit out of our usual travelling price range (around 50-60 soles for a steak) but wasn't disappointed. Oddly enough they only have one option of beef as a steak (tenderloin) the other options being alpaca as well as prawns and mahi mahi. I attempted to have a kind... More

We went out for lunch and decided to go to Uchu's based on the recommendation of friends. The menu had good variety. I got papas rellenas with aji de gallina and it was fabulous. It is basically a mashed potato on the outside, stuffed with a typical Peruvian dish, aji de gallina that is like a chicken stew made with... More

We took pictures of the spectacular food -- bit this site doesn't need them. Believe the pictures. The food tastes just as good as it looks. If you are a vegetarian -- stay away so someone who can appreciate the food can have your table.

I ordered the steak & shrimp entree and it was absolutely delicious! I was even more impressed with the presentation as it was served on a hot stone plate that looked beautiful. The food was literally still sizzling when it was served!

Amazing food, the steak was served on hot stone. Everything was delicious from the ceviche, potatoes, salads, steak, and of course the wine! Great service. Would definitely return.

I am a big foodie, and I was looking for a great foodie experience in Cusco. This place delivered on all levels.

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.
