“Best Meal in Peru! Get the Alpaca!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This restaurant was great. Excellent South American wines, a creative menu and amazing service! We started with a small amuse-bouche from the chef and a glass of Malbec and a glass of Cab.

I had the Aplaca with a wasabi butter sauce and mashed sweet potato with bacon! Absolutely incredible! My partner had the short ribs and was very pleased as well. We ended with the chocolate cake and almost came back on our second night :)

I Will return for that Alpaca!

“Awesome restaurant. Great value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Great meal at the right price. We stumbled upon this restaurant and didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised by the menu, the wine, and the vibe. The restaurant made me feel like I could eat there for a while.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We enjoyed cebiche, salad, and shared an entree of shrimp, scallops squid, and octopus. The octopus was delicious, unlike other we experienced in Peru at high end restaurants.

“Go for the ribs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

As the sister restaurant to Cicciliona we knew it would be good. Loved the ribs and salads and they have a good wine selection. Likely to be one of Cusco's rising stars, worth trying.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

I was expecting better of this, really small portion for the price. We took an entry with shrimps and chicken which was okay but the shrimp salad had no taste. I guess it depends on what you order but there are many other restaurants that are way better.
