Outstanding, personalized service and perfectly fabulous cuisine created magical memories which will certainly be the highlight of our dining experience in South America. The evening began with spectacular Peruvian wine, a treat from the chef and heavenly freshly baked bread. We enjoyed beef carpaccio, Amazonian paiche, delicate yogurt, elegantly refined potatoes and incomparable chocolate decadence! Not only is this exquisite restaurant lauded as the finest in Peru, it is widely known as one of the best restaurants in South America. This is certainly a must-do dining experience in Cusco in an idyllic, picturesque setting.

We enjoyed the quinoa ceviche salad and trio of potatoes and sauces for lunch. We also had a salad (kale) with passionfruit dressing for dinner that was outstanding - better than any kale salad that we have had in the San Francisco bay area (lots of kale here!). The only disappointment was that the apple custard (cherimoya) dessert was served with sweetened condensed milk straight from the can. However the presentation was interesting since the dessert was on a river rock. Overall, the presentation and table setting/decor was creative and brilliant!

Senzo was the best restaurant we visited in Peru. Staff was very attentive and informative. They have a great selection of Peruvian dishes very well prepared. Strong wine list as well. While it is more expensive than most restaurants in the City, the prices are very reasonable compared to a similar quality restaurant in North America.

I had the suckling pork, which was mouthwatering drip off the fork amazing. Others in our party had seafood dishes, which they were impressed with.

This is a good choice if you want to treat yourself.

Great choice for your first dinner in Cusco. If you like fancy places, great service, and a meal where you can really explore new sensations, SENZO is the natural choice. Virgilio Martínez certainly is one of the best Chefs in the country and his skills are beautiful shown here. Try the sample menu, we had jelly camu-camu pisco, Andean cedrón cockies, delicious light main courses and a delightful selection of assorted breads. A must if you are in Cusco!

So, it was our las night in Cusco.......So disappointing! Don't get me wrong, the setting is beautiful, but I ordered a manhattan, THEY ACTUALLY MADE IT WITH JACK DANIELS! Seriously, a manhattan at a 5 star establishment made with with jack Daniels? In hindsight i guess i shouldve inquired which liquor would be used, but i really didnt think it was necessary in light of where we where. There were three of us...Two manhattans and a glass of gentlemens jack neat...total.......over $60 U.S. We were stunned! We really don't mind paying top dollar for a top shelf cocktail, this was the whole reason we went to this bar to end our evening, But to be charged over $20 for a cocktail consisting of regular jack Daniels and martini and Rossi vermouth is absurd. Halfway thru her gentlemens jack our friend inquired what she had been served because she had a feeling she didn't receive what she ordered. The waiter actually admitted that he didn't have gentlemens jack and had served her some off brand of whiskey without telling her.....again, an ounce of this over $20? What a joke! Then, once my husband inquired as to the prices on our check, we discovered we had been overcharged by $20, apparently the waiter charged us for liquor that we didn't even drink, so miraculously our bill was reduced to $44. Dishonesty, or stupidity? We're not sure, but either way what a disappointment to be treated in this manner by a property that is charging $500 - $900 a night for a single room.
