For days when I was exhausted from all the traveling around, this eatery was perfect as it was directly across the street from our hotel at Rumi Punku. They have decent food and daily specials up on their board. I would recommend the dish that includes an alpaca steak, French fries, and a fried banana if you're super hungry. Really kind staff and owner who enjoys teaching you Spanish :)

We ended up here while searching for another restaurant. It was very quiet and tiny. The food was unexpectedly good. It wasn't the best restaurant in Cusco but it was a decent meal. They were out of a few things we wanted to order but the Stuffed Chiles were delicious.

Well, it makes a good story...we did order the guinea pig and it was probably not to our taste (no, not like chicken at all) BUT everything else we had at this restaurant was phenomenol and the waiter was truly a gem. We discovered this restaurant on our 3rd night in Cusco and proceeded to eat here every night for the rest of our stay (3 nights total). The food is excellent, lots of variety and if you are game to try the guinea pig, they will be sure you experince it traditionally. There was a picture of the Beatles on the wall and we asked about it and based on our limited Spanish translation, we are pretty sure the Beatles visited this very restaurant back in the 60's. Very welcoming atmosphere and just lovely people.

Found this little place whilst walking around town, very cute and great food. Had my first taste of Alpaca here in the form of a burger and was very impressed. There is also free wifi, which is great. Would definitely visit here again when I'm back in Cuzco.
