Description: It is the only gourmet restaurant of typical local food. We do not make fusion style. Located in the old palace of the Inca Tupac Yupanqui, we have vegetarian options. In Deva you can found the ancestral cuzco culture through its gastronomy. It is atended by its own owners. We have different Peruvian wines and piscos, and you can enjoy, if you wish so, the traditional "chicha de jora", drink that the Incas offered to the Sun in the Inti Raymi

As the name implies, they serve various foods you are not likely to see on a menu outside of Peru. We had the cuy and the alpaca. Possibly because we were there in the off-season on a Tuesday(?) night, it wasn't very busy and our waiter gave us quite an education. He brought out a display of the different types of potatoes, corn, and quinoa they use and explained their various uses, how they grow, etc. He also brought out some chicha for us to try and samples of various desserts. It was an excellent evening with an excellent meal.

Thank you very much for the comment.

We try to show the ingredients that we use to every one that come to Deva Restaurant, but is true that if the restaurant is busy we find it more complicated.

My best regards,

We visited this restaurant in Cuzco, the menu is limited to typical dishes of Cuzco, which consists of Alpaca, Cuy, potatoes and meat. Fish and poultry are not an option and the selection of the menu is quite limited.
Very knowledgeable staff and the owner greeted us and explained some of the dishes.
Very clean and excellent service.

I think it is important to mention that we have fish on the menu. We Rainbow Trout from Anta, Cuzco.

Went here on the last night of our tour with 6 other people and enjoyed it very much. Good,solid Peruvian fare and excellent drinks at a reasonable price. Very friendly host and owner. Definitely worth a trip here. Close to hotels and to the big Plaza.

On the last night of a tour of Peru, the group decided to have an opportunity to taste authentic Peruvian foods, including cuy (guinea pig). Our tour guide recommended Deva on San Agustin. We were treated to a tasting meal which included a range of delicious starters (including frozen potatoes, an exquisite quinoia dish and stuffed peppers), cuy (roasted & fried), alpaca and ceviche plus several desserts.
Each course was explained to us by Federico, the owner. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced.
If I had one complaint it would be that we could have eaten more, especially of the delicious cuy - and would have been prepared to pay more. I have deliberated carefully before giving 5 stars - these are based upon the quality given for the very low price. I would advise Federico to offer a little more and change more rather than risk lower ratings!

I was impressed by the service here (especially compared to the standard for service in Cusco). Also, if you're itching to try cuy (guinea pig) or alpaca, this is the place to do it. The food is prepared very well, and everything is clean and good. The decor inside of the restaurant is also pleasing and it makes you feel like you truly are experiencing a bit of the local life for a while.

If you're not really into traditional Andean food, this probably isn't the place for you. They do have other options and you can certainly get by, but the focus here is on the local options.
