Restaurant details
Good for: Local cuisine
Dining options: Late Night, Breakfast, Delivery, Reservations
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 service and delicious alpaca”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

This is a somewhat new restaurant in Cusco. The owner of Marcelo Batata, which is the same owner of here, told me UCHU has been open for about a year. You would never know it was so new! Great, great service and the alpaca on stone is worth trying.

“Best meal in Cuzco”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

We ate here and it was the best meal in Cuzco we had. On the pricey side for Peru standards, but relatively fair prices for US standards. The meal was worth every penny. Highly recommend the Alpaca steak and the Lamb Ribs. The three chocolate desserts they have are amazing!!!

“A gem of a restaurant!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We made our last meal in Cusco to be at Uchu because we knew this place was going to be a treat of a restaurant. Boy, we weren't disappointed at all! Fine dining at its best, Everything we had at Uchu was so delicious and beautifully presented, including the drinks. We had their signature grilled meat combo with yummy sauces to dip in and an appetizer. Perfect! Decor was warm and interesting as well. Can be a nice place for a date.We recommend everyone to splurge a little and check this place out. Even the owner/ host was wonderful and accommodating as well. We can't recommend this place enough!

“Fantastic authentic Peruvian steakhouse.”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Based on a recommendation from a good friend currently living in Cusco, we went to Uchu for dinner. Like many restaurants here in Peru, the exteriors of the buildings can be deceiving. The interior decor is very nicely done. We ordered one of their steak combinations, which included beef tenderloin, lamb & alpaca. It was served on a hot volcanic stone and included a salad and a very delicious mashed potatoes w/ peanuts and chile. A fantastic dish. We enjoyed the chocolate madness dessert as well. We highly recommend dining at Uchu if you are visiting Cusco.
