Description: Uchu's kitchen is inspired by classic Peruvian recipes touched with contemporary sophistication. We also play with new ingredients taking new flavors and creating unequable experiences for the palate. Carved wooden bases, volcanic stones prepared at high temperatures, an ample selection of surf and turf ítems from which to choose, native aji creams and aromatic herbs allow us to provide a unique dining experience for all. Located in a colonial home in the center of Cusco, exposed adobe walls, clay, aged wood, avant garde textiles, candles and crystals create an eclectic ambience in which to enjoy your experience.

“Great Ambience, Great Food”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

With generous portions, an upscale feel and extremely gracious and helpful service, Uchu was one of our favourite dining spots in Cusco. We tried the stone-cooked beef and both enjoyed it - big hits at our table included the beet and potato soup and the spicy peanut mashed potato side dish. Although a bit pricier than some of the other Cusco dining options, we felt that the price was more than justified by the food, atmosphere and service - we would strongly recommend Uchu to others in the mood for meat while in Cusco.

“Add it to the must-do list in Cusco”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

My friends, wife, and I went to Uchu based on a whim and left utterly impressed. First, we spent about 20 minutes at the bar getting a lesson on how to make Pisco Sours from the bar tender, Ebony. Next, we moved on to enjoy a delicious round of Ceviche. Finally, we ended up trying four different meals which were all superb. The staff was by far the most attentive and helpful that we encountered during our 10 day trip. Any traveller should be certain to include a dinner at Uchu during their travels to Cusco.

“Excellent food, try the alpaca.”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Great venue, service, value and food. We loved our meal here. The alpaca was beautifully presented on a hot plate with four sauces and vegetables. The alpaca was delicious.
