Great service! We really enjoyed our dinner. Delicious nachos and horchata :)
The restaurant is located up a small street from the main plaza.

“A nice find.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

We saw the reviews and came to this quaint little place. It was very delicious by and the service was great. We are vegetarians and were tired of the same food options at other restaurants. Just about every dish had a vegetarian version and we felt it was tastier than the mexican we've had back home. Not having the food swimming in tomato sauce meant no heartburn. The vegetarian chimichangas were very good.

“The best cheaper option in Cusco.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

The staff was very good! There´s a lot of options in Cusco, but this is cheap (about 15 soles per person, with all include) and very very good. Was clean and there´s a big menu! In other restaurants the touristic menu is very small, you can choose between 2 or 3 main courses, but in El Cuate you have A LOT of options. The flavor was very very good. We had dinner one night and came back another day for lunch.

“Can't do much better for 15 soles!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

This menu turistico for 15 soles is fantastic. It includes a drink, including house wine or pisco sour, free chips and pico de gallo and garlic bread, then your choice of salad or soup and a main course of Peruvian, Mexican, Italian or vegetarian cuisine! Yum!

“home atmosphere, great food, cheap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

It is a lovely place run by a very hospitable host. There is a 15 soles menu that will fill you up easily. Great soups (tomato, criolla) and mexican dishes, delicious house wine. Very cosy atmosphere.
We came there twice during our stay in Cusco and every time enjoyed it.
