“Best dinner in Cusco!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Food was incredible! I had the lamb and it melted in my mouth. The gooseberry juice is delicious! My husband was very hungry and wanted a good sized serving of food. He went for the chicken and it was so tasty and juicy. Great vibe and good service.

“Best restaurant in Cusco”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

Coming from New York, my husband and I could immediately tell that cusco has some hipster vegan vibe going on a la Brooklyn. That known, I guess it's easy to see why the top rated restaurants are vegan/vegetarian/organic etc.

That's cool and all but Chicha is definitely the best place to eat. Our Machu Picchu guide suggested we go here and I'm so glad we did! We went on our last day in Cusco, dead tired after returning from Aguascalientes, and we were not disappointed!

The lamb pita appetizers were AMAZING and we would have been fine eating those all night. Also had 2 drinks, the mushroom pizza, and smoked fish with quinoa - delicious!

The service, atmosphere, and food are unparalleled. Chicha deserves to be rated higher!

“Amazing food”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Fine dining, fresh produce, excellent wine. What else could you ask for! It was suggested to us by a fellow traveller and we are entirely grateful. Thought about staying in Cusco longer just so we could try the rest of the menu. Peruvian fusion at its finest!

“It's OK”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Was expecting more of the food. It was plain good. We tried tequenas which were OK, and pastel de choclo which was really not good.

“The idea is to share”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Very good fusion Peruvian food, nothing to compliant but nothing outstanding either. The service was excellence despite the restaurant was super full. The waiter told us that the idea of the food is to share. Trout - avocado was pretty good, but octopus was awesome. Desert was fair. Price was reasonable, we paid 110 soles for dinner for two with drinks and desert.
