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.

Thanks to Trip Advisor, I had suggested this restaurant as the place to celebrate a friend's birthday. We had had several meals before visiting Cusco, including alpaca, but the food and service at UCHU was exceptional. The alpaca was delicious, the spicy peanut mashed potatoes were a unique find, and the appetizers were fantastic. Service was friendly, attentive, and helpful and the price was very reasonable for the quality of service and the deliciousness of the food. Highly recommended!

After getting two bacteria infections in Bolivia when we moved on to Peru I was in search of some good healthy clean food. This place was amazing, great food and service.

My partner and I ate here at least 4 times while we where in Cuzco. It really was that good!

Family of 6 was accommodated without a reservation (but would recommend it!). The food was incredible-the steaks all come out cooked rare on cooking stones and continued to cook as we sat dining. Two people at our table tried alpaca and it was very interesting-gamey as I guess you would expect. The sauces, the meat and the wine was amazing. After paying the bill we were given a card for 10% off at their other restaurant, Marcelo's, which we ate at twice! Uchu is well worth the visit and half the price as a fine American restaurant.

My sister and I went there three times during our trip. 1ST was during lunch:mediocre service, good food. 2nd time: Dinner was awesome and great service. 3rd: absolutely horrible service. Rude and wait staff blatantly ignored us. There was only two other people in the whole place so we couldn't even assume it was just a super busy night. Was absolutely terrible and the experience was so bad even with the awesome dinner experience, I will not recommend this place to friends.

This was another of the Cusco restaurants that was actually pretty crowded and had a great atmosphere. You can choose a trio of meats (we did alpaca, lamb rib, and mahi mahi) and they bring over a hot stone and you can cook it yourself to however raw or well done you like. The lamb ribs were incredible. So tender and juicy and flavorful. Great appetizers, too.
