“Best Meal in Peru”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

I went with a group of 5 and we were all impressed. I had the Alpaca steak. I was expecting it to be a bit tough and/or gamey and was pleasantly surprised. The steak was tender and cooked to perfection with a wonderful sauce. Others at the table had river trout, pasta and sea bass and all of the dishes were excellent. The dining room was intimate and the overall experience was top notch. If ever in Cusco again, I won't hesistate to return.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Our meal here may have been the best in Cusco, especially comparing the very reasonable price (compared to other restaurants we visited). Loved the atmosphere as well.

This isn't a cheap place, but the food is divine. I had the steak and my partner had the ink squid pasta. It was fabulous. Coupled with some double pisco sours, twas a great night

“A little pricey, but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

I have dined here twice and the food has been delicious on both occasions. It is not the cheapest restaurant in town, but for a special dinner it is the best. The service is great (something no high on the Peruvian talent list) and the setting is beautiful.

“great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

the restaurant is located on calle triunfo next to the cathedral on plaza de armas. it is a bit tricky to find since it is situated on the second floor of a building. however the food is really good, the service impeccable. the price is a bit high but the food quality warrants it. you better book a reservation if you want to be sure of securing a table
