Reviewed April 4, 2022

First a disclaimer, 3 stars is leveled to overall Barranquilla level, which is sadly not very high, at least in anything that should be above the street food. For the food I had very mixed impressions, both, the Traditional Peruvian Ceviche and Aguadito of Mariscos...gave the impression of using mostly fresh ingredients of good quality but the taste was sadly simply blind. Similar was with two different Piscos, in both there was only a trace of Pisco, and they were mixed with artificial syrups. The serving staff was friendly, but the serving itself is typical for the place, you sometimes wait to long for anything to happened, and than suddenly you are left with two different dishes, fighting the server not to take away something. I took one point in grading away for clearly greedy pricing practices of the restaurant. The VAT is not included (small print) and the staff is trying to stir you to more expensive dishes without any explanation why their suggestion would be better for the dinning experience. Disappointing.More

I went there with two friends. This is a very nice restaurant. It’s small but quaint located near a couple other restaurants in the area. I have been to Peru so I know the food fairly well. I first ordered a Pisco sour and they...hit it well. The menu has a really broad selection. We had a variety of chicken fish and risotto. Everything was well prepared heart and presented well. I will definitely come here again. Three of us ate here for around $98 so it is not a cheap restaurant but I would recommend this place. The servers were friendly and knowledgeable. They presented them selves well and dressed well. I will be back.More

This is probably if not the best, one of the best restaurants in Barranquilla. The service is very good and it has a great ambience. The best Peruvian food in the city for sure.

Cuzco is always my choice of preference when it comes to have a date for lunch or dinner. Food always has great presentation and taste, but service is the top of the best in the city. You will feel like home when they serve you...and almost feel like we are a single family. My best date with my loving partner I have it in this restaurant. Recommend for Friday or Saturday night because they have live music, but also good for a Sunday lunch, with a great cold sangria for a hot afternoon in Barranquilla. it is a place that never disappointsMore

Some complain about the prices but I find decent value for money when you consider the high quality food and drinks at Cuzco! Good service, great food, nice atmosphere with live music. The Peruvian food is creative and as good as any Peruvian food anywhere....I have been there with my wife, with my family and I have also taken work colleagues there.More

We went there because I wanted to show my Colombian Girlfriend what is the Peruvian cuisine. I lived in Peru for 4 years and always and still think it’s the best food in the world. The service was exceptional. A1. I ordered a Ceviche tradicional...(limeño) and a Lomo saltado (2 of the most iconic Peruvian dish) . Both taste and texture were close to perfect except that the ceviche was lacking the Ají limón and the potatoes in the lomo saltado were not fried and crispy. But other then that, the ceviche was still exceptional and even though (to me) both dish was lacking a bit of spiciness (the server later explained me that Colombian don’t eat spicy at all) the food was of the highest quality. If I was to give a true Peruvian taster one single tip, that would be to ask the server to put aji limón when the prepare the ceviche and also ask for the potatoes to be fried for the lomo saltado. I’m sure they would do it. We also had a Malbec from Argentina that was a perfect match for the Lomo saltado. Overall, I’d give them a 4.8/5. Again, the server were A1. There was also a very nice Jazz Band which really gave a romantic feel to our dinner . Highly recommended. Oh and last point, we also ordered 2 Pisco sour, but again, they made it the “Colombian way” ....the taste was still very close but they put some crushed ice ....which made no sense to me ...but yes, it was almost the same. Our total bill was 254k cop. I think it’s totally worth it. Bravo and long life to that beautiful restaurant.More

Good place to go with your partner. Live music is nice (at least on Saturdays). Good taste. Our plates had enough for what we paid, but some dishes might be overpriced. Some dishes can be spicy so be careful with your orders. Great service.
