About
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.

Very decent steak in a more upmarket restaurant in Cusco. Offers a wide range of meats, from imported steaks such as t-bone to alpaca, as well as seafood and vegetable kebabs. All come with a choice of local potatoes and a salad, as well as...a variety of sauces. I had the sirloin which was delicious even if cooked a little over my request of medium rare.More

Everything was better than ok! The drinks, the salad, the beef, the pasta, the desserts. Our host was Edson and he explain us about everything, recommended the author drinks and give us the best service in Cusco. We’ll be back soon!

This is an amazing restaurant. Our steaks were prepared a little undercooked because they were served on very hot stones and were able to basically continue to have them cook on our plates in front of us. We thought that very cool. They were very...flexible on mixing and matching or steak with seafood with various Peruvian sauces. The wait staff was amazing and it was a very very pleasant and different experience.More

Even though it was busy, our waitress was not very friendly and did not provide the order requested correctly - because she CHOOSE not to listen! The meal was cold, the stone was not hot and the meat came out blood raw. Very disappointing considering...the price.More

My son and I ate here our first night in Cusco. The service and atmosphere were really nice. The food was excellent. Everything tasted great. I would return on another trip to Peru.

We both had the Alpaca Steaks. We ordered medium rare and then with the hot lava rock it was served on we could finish cooking to the doneness that we each like. The food was so good we returned the last night of our stay...in Cusco before flying out. The Pisco Sours and Desserts were also really good. Great and friendly staff/waiters.More

I was really looking forward to eating here. It wasn't what I was expecting in comparison to the other venues we ate at. It had a kind of highbrow feel to it. A little stuffy in its offering. I was after a big juicy steak...and nice glass of red. That wasn't really an option here, trying to be too up market. I got a mix selection of meats on a hot stone to cook myself, small portions of each. Not a great atmosphere in the place, it just felt all too formal for a supposed steak house.More

We ate at Uchu after seeing good reviews online and it did not disappoint! The steak was delicious along with the sides - the house salad you get with all steaks was really good and huge for a side dish! The cocktails were also great....Amazing value for such delicious food - I’d highly recommend if you’re a steak lover!More

We just had an amazing experience at Uchu. Even though we did not have reservations the head of the restaurant found us a table for a party of eight…four adults and four children. The children are picky eaters and they all cleaned there plates because...the meal was so delicious. I ordered a medium steak. It came out a bit more raw, but then because it was served on a sizzling hot stone it continued to cook and came out just to my liking. The desserts were delectable as well. It is definitely one of the top restaurants I have ever eaten at. My sons give it a five out of five! It made our last night in this part of Peru fantastic before we head to the Amazon.More

The staff was very warm, helpful and accommodating. The meat came on a heated plank that allowed us to keep it warm or make it a bit more done. The salad was a wonderful mix of vegetables. We tried the alpaca steak which was delicious...by itself and with the many sauces that accompanied it. Both the sweet potato fries and the mashed potatoes were good. All in all a great dinner.More

Superb, excellent, cost for myself and Partner was 200 sols total (about £45). We opted for the 3 meat tenderloin platter, couple of beers and some wine. Staff great, presentation superb, cooked perfectly and that was true for the entire group of 7. This is...a must for steak fans.More

We loved our dinner at Uchu. The atmosphere is very nice (take a warm sweater everywhere in the evenings in Cusco), and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food was all delicious with very generous portions. Fantastic ceviche, meats/fish and the chocolate...desert was one of the best I’ve ever had. Pisco sours and Peruvian wine also excellent.More
