The design of the dining area is reminiscent of the Incan ruins that you find everywhere in this part of Peru. The staff was very helpful to us in selecting our meals. I had a delicious alpaca and sweet potato ( one of the 300 types of potatoes grown in Peru). My husband had a delicious roasted pork, roasted stuffed pepper and tamales. Everything was presented nicely and the price was right. I would definitely come here again.

I ate at this restaurant while in Cusco and it is some of the best food I have ever had! I had the trout which was quite tasty and cooked to perfection. My friend had the alpaca and it was quite tasty as well. They make the best Pisco sours in Peru.

We went to have dinner to El Meson during our stay in Cuzco. They have a wide variety of local dishes and some international options too. The lomo and the soup we ordered were very tasty and abundant. There is some good selection of cocktails - i would suggest to try the local beer though. There is a light and a dark version, and have more taste than many local brews I've tried in DC.
During our dinner a group was playing some inca-style tunes and made the environment very amenable. They were not loud, but blended very well with the restaurant ambiance.

This restaurant is just off the Plaza de Armas, so it's a convenient place for lunch, which is what we ate there. The food was inconsistent--mine was much better than my husband's. But the atmosphere was pleasant (including live
Andean music) and the service was friendly if a bit slow.

Warm welcome, good atmosphere and great food. You don't need anything else. It seems to be very busy until about 8pm so either get there early or later
