We had our best meal in Cusco here. Service was phenomenal. We were treated like royalty. The food was fantastic and the beautiful presentation and service made it taste even better. The romantic medieval atmosphere make for an ideal restaurant setting.

The chef's take on Peruvian "street food" was great, combining the sophistication of a well-run restaurant with the tastes of street life. The fish dishes were excellent, too! Can't speak of the beef, though others we met raved about it. The presentation of the dishes...More

We visited the Tupay restaurant for dinner and enjoyed it. We arrived at 7:30pm when a live opera show started and the place was full. Unfortunately that lead to long delays in the service which was fortunately corrected due to the General Managers intervention. The...More

My sister and I decided to splurge on their opera night. Totally agree with several other reviews. Lovely setting, friendly and professional maitre'd, nice opera presentation. Food was overpriced, underseasoned and underwhelming. Huge disappointment!

Lovely setting, great opera, good service, nice ambiance, lighting and decoration. Ordered fish of the day and Uruguayan steak; fish was good, the steak was just a regular steak at NY prime price, side salad was good though. The complete disappointment came with the dessert:...More
