This is a great place to get away from the obligatory local specialties, su h as cuy, alpaca, etc. What they have done instead is incorporate some local dishes into delicious,creative sandwiches. Lomo saltado, instead of being served with the usual pile of rice and fries, is piled onto a crusty French roll. The pumpkin soup was also delicious, made, I think, with a South American squash called zapallo. This is a casual spot, highly recommended for lunch.

We had dinner here this evening and it was an enjoyable experience. The atmosphere is very nice, new and clean with trendy bossa nova music playing. The waitstaff all speak English and the service is excellent. Menu consists of soups, salads, sandwiches and pasta, all very well made using fresh ingredients. It's a great option in Cuzco.

The waitress was really nice and understood English really well even though she said she couldn't. The hot chocolates were tasty and the muffin was a great topper to the drinks. Overall a great place.

We've just got back from Peru and still cannot stop thinking about the amazing food we had at Cafe Morena. We went here 4 times in less than a week and both had delicious meals every time we went. We have been to a lot of restaurants but this is by far the best ever. All of the staff here are so friendly! Good location, easy to get to - just by the main square.

The portion sizes were so big - you really get what you pay for here. The Rico Sanguchon is the best sandwich I've ever had. Drinks are good too. All nicely presented.

Amazing place, it's just a shame there isn't one in England :(

Thank you again,

Dannielle and Pete

Great restaurant. Service was fast and good. The chef was nice enough to tell me how he prepared the best quinoa salad I ever had. Would go there a second time.
