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

Our concierge recommended Deva when we asked about cuy. Tried the baked and the fried, and I have to concur that there's not much meat on the little critters. We did like the special touches provided by our server and hosts - wine recommendation, roasted corn, sampling of chicha, info about the potatoes and other ingredients. Very convenient location for us, between our hotel and the plaza. They had 2 rather large groups in that night, so we were glad to get a table.

We went on a culinary tour with Frederico of Deva. We thouroughly enjoyed the market tour and his womnderful knowledge of the Peruvian cuisine. We were able to try the Cusco specialty Cuy as well as a dish made with Alpaca. Both were excellent. Try the different Pisco infusions. They were wonderful.

Alfredo (and all the others in this restaurant) made this experience truly special. His warm greeting, the time he took to help us with some Quechua phrases, and his service helped to make this a wonderful evening. We started with chichas, ordered the guinea pig (baked), shared alpaca tenderloin, french fries and the quinoa risotto. Yes, the food is very good, the opportunity to taste the local guinea pig is special, and the entire experience is one not to be missed. We had only one evening meal in Cusco so I cannot compare Deva to any other restaurant but I do recommend it highly. Have fun!

We had a great meal here. Delicious food, great service. Alfredo goes out of his way to welcome guests and make everyone feel at home. The room is beautiful, if a bit too brightly lit.

Wonderful, authentic restaurant with a terrific waiter--Eddie! Well worth the visit! We went with friends and had a great time and a lot of laughs. The service was wonderful as was the food. If you're a bit adventurous, try the cuy or the alpaca. Eddie took such great care of us! Thank you!
