We have been waiting for more than 1 hour at here last night, but we just ordered two meals: alpaca and aji gallina. There were no forks and knives until we mentioned the stuff who didn't speak English and had bad attitude. l won't recommend anyone to this restaurant except you have lots of time (for example: all night) and...

Very cute family run restaurant. This is a great place for hearty and delicious traditional Peruvian cuisine. The quinoa soup was very flavourful and the aji de gallina was incredible. It's a hidden gem slightly tucked away from the central area. Food was a bit slow to come out, but friendly service and warm atmosphere.

The food was so delicious. I had Alpaca and it tasted so good. My friend had a vegetarian sandwich which was also very delicious. The fresh drinks are also just perfect. The place is very welcoming and the staff is very nice. We stayed a few days in Cusco and this was the best restaurant. And the price is very... More

Located just outside primary tourist area this family restaurant offers very good local cuisine in decent prices. They have just 5 tables, so booking may be advisable.

Wonderful little family restaurant, we ate the alpaca burgers and they were absolutely delicious. We were there when the power went out and they attended to emergency lighting straight away. Lovely food, great service 😀

We had dinner at Seledonia's as we wanted some different Peruvian food to what we'd been eating. It was lovely. The whole family pitches in to run it and they were very welcoming. Food was lovely and put a modern twist on Peruvian cuisine. We had the pollo neoandino and it was delicious :) Would definitely recommend if you're in... More

Quinoa soup to die for. The chicken in quinoa with sauce beyond belief. The family were so naturally friendly. Going back to try the alpaca and doing a cooking course. Was fantastic.

This is the most wonderful restaurant in Cusco. Tucked away in a beautiful courtyard, it is run by a lovely family, the food is delicious and the atmosphere cheery and kind. Would recommend to anyone.

If you are looking for a great food, local experience, this is the place. Seledonia herself welcomed us into her home. Her son sat at the next table plying on his computer. Her daughter helped set the table. And her husband did the cooking. We had a lovely lomo saltado which was served with rice and potatoes with a Cuzquena... More

Great food from a hole-in-the-wall-family-restaurant. The quinoa crusted stuff is delicious and crispy. Be sure to ask for their hot sauce, which seems to be homemade with that local orange chili.

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!
