We went here for lunch at the suggestion of our guide in Machu Picchu, after asking about a good place to try Cuy in Cuzco. Which is what I ended up ordering, although I thought I had ordered the roasted version, ended up with the fried, which I attested to the communication (the waiters didn't speak much English). My wife ordered the Aji de Gallina.
Portion sizes were quite enormous, comparatively to what we had seen at other restaurants, and the prices were rather reasonable, the Cuy being 45 soles, vs 60 that we had seen in other areas).
The service was very good, our server Percy being attentive, but not overbearing.
During our meal the dining room (which seemed to by quite large compared to other restaurants in the city), filled up, with quite a bit of locals, I don't remember seeing very many other travelers in the dining room. This and the lack of English suggested that it may be more authentic than what we had seen, which was exactly what we were looking for.
The restaurant is a good distance from the Plaza de Armes (about a 10 minute walk)
