I don't think you can go much wrong in Cusco for restaurants. This was tucked a way a little and up a couple of flights of stairs. But another smiling welcome and an english speaking waitress (or was she the owner?). Great, intimate atmosphere, menu chalked on the board which gives you the feel of freshly cooked food. Menu was a sort of fusion of Peru and Venezuela/Caribbean. We both made Andean Stew with a glass of chilean wine - simple but great.

We visited Peru on our Honeymoon and planned on eating a lot of delicious food. We had many amazing meals and Inkazuela is the only restaurant we visited more than once. We heard about Inkazuela by word of mouth, and after visiting trip advisor knew it was a meal we had to experience. The location is central and in a quiet lovely plaza next to Hotel Monastario. Ever warmly greeted us and was incredibly helpful with the menu. We started ( both nights ) with the Andean cheese and Spinach dip which we loved. It came with fresh rolls which were delectable. The two stews we tried and highly recommend are the Caribbean coconut chicken with curry & ginger, and the Peruvian beef with spicy chilies. I wish we had discovered this gem earlier on our trip as we would have gone as often as possible. It is the perfect meal after a long day exploring town or the Sacred Valley. The ambiance is warm and inviting, and the stews and dishes are unique and packed with unforgettable flavor. This is honestly a restaurant you won't regret visiting while in Cusco.

We had dinner here based on the trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. To begin with, if you are looking for an earlier dinner they open for dinner at 5:30. We went about 6:30 and were greater by friendly staff and the owner of the restaurant. She took the time to give us recommendations and a little on the background on the restaurant. They have a variety of stews to choose from and ours were delicious. If you are in Cusco be sure to stop by Inkazuela!

Hands down the best restaurant service I've ever had.
As a group of 4 American visiting cusco for an internship, we were often faced with less-than-friendly service. Many restaurant owners/workers were impatient with our requests for an English-speaking server. At Inkazuela, this was NOT the case.
Upon our first visit, Our server Ever welcomed us in English with arms wide open, and spent his valuable time translating the dishes into English complete with details about ingredients and recommendations for each diner's palate. His caring and compassionate service paired with the absolutely delicious food kept us coming back for dinner every day during our week-end
The prospect of a different stew like stew spicy beef coconut chicken and chesse dip each day was perfect for our short trip, since we wanted to experience as many different peruvian foods as possible; and we were never disappointed! From appetizers to desserts (pear pie: chocolate cupcakes) the food was unparalleled, and the service provided by Ever made for an unbelievable experience

This restaurant located right across our hotel Monasterio, in a nice and quiet square. I like the atmosphere there and colorful design. And of course food there is in my opinion the best in the city. They make delicious bread and stew, which is there specialty!
Definitely recommend!!
