Food was well presented, reasonably priced and tasted good. One of our better meals in the main plaza area of Cusco with the bonus of a nice view.

We stopped in to Bagdad Cafe after a morning of hiking around the ruins above Cusco. The menu includes pizzas with a wide range of toppings, and we went with the house special. The medium was enough for two people, and the pizza was great. The location, with a balcony overlooking the Plaza de Armas, was excellent, and we had a nice time people watching while we ate. Overall a very pleasant place to have lunch.

One of the good things about this restaurant, one set of stairs up, is that it is located right in the main Cusco square. We had a table next to the window and you have a very good view from where you eat.

I had this Peruvian chicken curry, which I believe is called Aji de gallina. It is mild and creamy. Service was good and friendly too. My meal came to $34 Nuevo Sol which is pretty reasonable.

If you spend some time at Plaza de Armas, then consider dining at the Bagdad Cafe. The cafe provides a wonderful balcony from which you can view the Plaza from your table. The staff are very friendly and professional. While my wife had more mainstream fare, I gravitated to the cuy (Guinea pig). They offered the best price (that we could locate) in town for a whole pig. Perhaps a main staple in Peru, roasted cuy is delicious. This is simply an all around good restaurant with a wide variety of dishes and drinks. Go with confidence!

For 15 soles you can choose from a range of starters and mains. It also includes a dessert and glass of coke. I had the trout which was lovely. You can also have ceviche for starter and makes it even more better value for money. Very tasty overall, highly recommend also has a balcony overlooking the main plaza, excellent views.
