Ate here twice during a week in Cusco and enjoyed both our lunch and dinner. Very small, quirky, simple decor and the family and children eat with you and serve you. Great food, really tasty, plentiful and extremely cheap, loved it.

We stumbled into this restaurant by chance and it turned out to be one f the finest restaurants we've eaten in our South America trip. Clean, fresh, homemade tasty traditional peruvian food, friendly and cozy atmosphere. Excellent!

We had lunch here today and we're back for dinner. Fresh food, excellent service & clean! Chicken soup for lunch with a healthy serving of chicken and fresh veggies. Pumpkin soup that tastes like pumpkin. You can see the kitchen from where you sit. So clean and organized. Seledonia made me fresh orange and papaya drink using the papaya I... More

We saw a lot of postive comments about Seledonia's Mesa on Tripadvisor and Flyertalk, we wanted to check it out. We were not disappointed. The place is small, but the food was tremendous. Exactly what we were looking for in local Peruvian cuisine. We did not want fancy, but wanted to try a local, home cooked meals. Highly recommended.

This place was amazing! It is a small family restaurant a short walk from Plaza de Armas. Selia and her family are wonderful people that we really enjoyed visiting with. We ended up eating here on 2 different occasions: the pollo novoandino was one of the best things we ate in Cusco, but we also tried the pollo saltado, the... More

We went to the restaurant rather early for dinner, the staff wasn't ready but still welcomed us in. We ordered three dishes in the picture menu to share. The crispy chicken had mash potato on the side, we asked to swap for rice, they were happy to accommodate. The stir fried beef dish was very tasty. The restaurant is small,... More

Was wandering around looking for somewhere for lunch when I came upon this little treasure. Lovely home cooked food. Very friendly family run restaurant. Am going back tomorrow to sample some more. Thoroughly recommend.

Based on the TA reviews we were so excited to go here that we did not notice it was closed on Sundays! Whoops! So we went back on a Monday... It is in a picturesque garden and the restaurant itself is also very sweet. We ended up getting the menu del dia (how can you turn it down for 10/s?!)... More

Seledonia's Mesa is the place to be in Cusco if you want a familiar athmosphere and truly excellent local food! Lunch at Selia's (as friends call her) is a sunny and joyful experience in her warm, covered patio. And dining is like being home at a Cusco family, enjoying some of Cusco's finest dishes in a cozy athmosphere.
Cooking classes are part of the experience, too: so you can take Seledonia's wonderful cuisine back home!
