“Great place to take a rest and enjoy good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

The place is very cool, with the walls covered with art pieces. The staff is very gentle. We arrived a little bit late for lunch time, so it was empty, but the food was still great. There is a relaxed atmosphere, so this is a great place to rest a little bit and enjoy a Cusqueña after walking the steep streets of San Blás. Also nice for those who want to taste Peruvian food that is not too exotic.

“Sister of Fallen Angel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Owned by the same couple as Fallen Angel, the first clue is the highly styled interior that is a little more subdued. Like it's sister the menu is fusion and offers a wide variety of choices. There is a full service bar and the staff is very friendly and attentive.

I had the lomo saltada which is a Peruvian take on beef stir fry and a popular dish wherever I travelled. Portions are quite large. Definitely order a pisco sour while here.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Order from the Breakfast Menu for a more economical meal - the food was divine! You enter the restaurant through a shop so don't think you're at the wrong place.

“Fabulous food and a diverse selection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

We stumbled on this place after spending a morning on a Long Cusco city tour including numerous ruins. We were tired, hot, mad VERY hungry. An hour later, we were relaxed, cool, and completely satisfied ... Make that ecstatic ... With the food. Vegetarians and meat lovers will both find wonderful choices - the menu was so good, making a choice was difficult. We're already planning a trip back.

“Perfect for a sunday's hangover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

We had a brunch a sunday morning with a massive hangover and this place was kind of an heaven.
The atmosphere is relaxing with a smooth electro jazz music, and the food is delicious and generous, many style of brunchs with 3 eggs , sandwichs...
The only bad thing is that there is no juce or hot drink includes and they are expensive an they don't know ow to do a milk cofee (3/4 milk!!)
