Went here twice during out trip to Peru. Got a table by the window both times and enjoyed the afternoon/evening view of Plaza de Armas along with fresh ceviche and other Peruvian dishes. Will certainly return!

From attention, atmosphere, to the food, we loved that place. We ordered the Lomo Saltado, which is Peruvians national dish next to ceviche as we've learned that day. The mix with quinoa was delicious! Our agency made a reservation prior to our visit, because as...we arrived in the evening, the restaurant was fully occupied and outside there were people waiting. I recommend making your reservation in advance to avoid any waiting time. Overall we love the Peruvian food, it's so various.More

Lovely ambiance, outstanding food and excellent service made this our best meal in Peru. We came by the day before and booked - we could only get 6 pm or 9 pm so my recommendation is always to book here. To be honest after one...and a half weeks in Peru we were a bit fed up with the repetitive nature of restaurant food. We had eaten plenty of trout, alpaca, Guinea pig and Lomo soltada- all great - but we were seeking something different. This restaurant offers that and more!More

Our group ate here for dinner, and every person in our party of eight thought their three-course meal was exceptional! The atmosphere and presentation was beautiful and the the food was delicious. We agreed The that their tradition Aji de Gallina dish was the best...we had in Peru. We also recommend the table side cocktails and the chocolate ice cream boat.More

A bitter taste and experience on my last day in Peru. It's definitely overhyped. The hospitality is poor right from the point of taking a reservation. No matter how good the food is or how many stars rating you have, people need to be treated...well. This place does not respect solo travellers and also there is a preference based on the color of your skin and also the language you speak (I failed at impressing them via Spanish) Not recommended and will never ever go back to Peru or this restaurant. Jinxed my entire impression on Peru and it's peopleMore

I was a late lunchtime walk-in when the restaurant was very busy but the waiting staff did their best to find a place for me which they did. The Andean chicken soup and then Peruvian rice with chicken and fish were both delicious and full...of interesting flavours. All the staff were lovely, and Victor in particular was very attentive, welcoming and charming. He really made me feel like a valued and special customer. I highly recommend this restaurant and will certainly return if I am back in Cusco.More

We ate at Morena our first night in Cusco. The restaurant has a great view of plaza de armas. We ordered the special drink of the night and it was made with fresh ingredients table-side. The appetizer and meals were delicious and the photos of...the presentation speak for themselves. Highly recommend!More

Incredible location and food and Pisco sours. Couldn’t believe the food, taste and presentation. We were able to walk in for lunch but they were booked for days for dinner.

This is one of the best restaurants I have been to, we visited at around 5pm on Saturday 20 August. The gentleman who seated us was so welcoming when greeting us. Once inside, I'm sure every member of staff waited on our table during our...meal and they were all outstanding. The food was fantastic, as was the price and portion size. We started with chorizo bruschetta which was fantastic, we were also served with a range of sauces on the side from mild to spicy which were great. I then had the 'aeropuerto' and my partner had alpaca risotto both fantastic again. To finish we had the Lucamisú and Affogatto With Churros. Additionally the table next to us ordered cocktails which were made at the table which looked very impressive. Thank you to all staff and chefs for a really amazing evening!More

We stopped in for lunch and enjoyed a very good meal. Our server was friendly and efficient. We weren’t that hungry so we just ordered soup. They brought is a dish of potatoes and a sauce as a starter at no charge. My wife had...the Andean Chicken Soup and I had the Criolla Soup. Both were excellent and very filling. The location is great and the prices reasonable. All good!More

Morena offered a full Peruvian dining experience in a great location right off the plaza. Juan was our server and he did an amazing job answering questions, communicating food allergies to the chef, and making sure all our needs were met. The food was amazing...and the presentation of the food was like something out of a magazine. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had a great experience. If you’re in Cusco and looking for an authentic Peruvian dining experience in a restaurant with great atmosphere and friendly staff, Morena is the place to go! Highly recommend the affogato con churros - so delicious!More

You would need to ask the restaurant. They seem very flexible as we had some gluten free people at our table, but I'd check to be sure.
