“Outstanding Food & Ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

We found this restaurant while wondering the streets of Cusco. It was a truly fantastic find.

Really didn't know what to expect but we were blown away with this chic fusion Peruvian food. A must for anyone staying in Cusco.

I had an open faced alpaca burger that was super tasty. Didn't know alpaca could taste so good. For dessert it was a caramel chocolate date cake to die for.

If we had found it sooner would have sampled much more of the menu. The owner stopped by our table during the dinner and made us feel especially welcome.

Really don't miss out on this one!

“Best Meal in Peru! Get the Alpaca!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
