“Cigar Smoke and Food Do Not Mix Well”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

During our recent visit to Cuzco, my wife and I were looking for a place to have dinner. I had noticed Paddy's on our first day in the city, and was in the mood for "pub food." I figured, Paddy's would fit the bill. Sure enough, we saw the menu posted near the first floor entrance, and it had my favorites like shepherd's pie. The food items seemed reasonably priced (for centro Cuzco), so we climbed the steps to the pub on the second floor. Once we entered the bar, the stench from the cigar smoke was so thick, you could cut it with a knife. We decided not to eat here because the smell was so repulsive. It would have been impossible to enjoy a meal at this establishment. We promptly did an about face, and exited the establishment without sampling the bill of fare.

Paddy's has a typical bar setting. There is seating at the bar, and at a number of tables in the smoke-filled tap room.

“A first!”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

We broke our golden rule of frequenting Irish and English bars abroad. We popped in as there was a pwoer cut in the square and we could not walk up to our hotel.
We were met with a charming pub with a great atmosphere. We ahd already eaten but heard no end of orders for the famous shepherds pie (we will try that today).
Two lovely Peruvian girls work there and expalined how to make possibly the best Pisco Sours we have tried.
Get in for 8pm for the happy hour on some cocktails!

“Worth a Visit”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

This pub is worth a visit, if only to say that you've been to the highest Irish pub on the planet. You can even get a free poster to prove it. The food is average and it's a bit tiny.

“Traditional Irish Pub”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Had to frequent this place as the highest Irish Pub. Felt like a typical Irish pub, complete with nice decor, good atmosphere and beer.

Food wise, I wasn't too impressed, but then it's pub grub and nothing to really write home about.

It's small, but a great place to hang out and chill, if you're lucky you can get the seat infront of the window that looks out to the square.
