Went there for a dinner and was not disappointed, thought it will be a bit pricey because the place is really nice but really it was fine! Had a cuy nicely presented for the picture and then they cut it for you, it was one...More

This hidden gem is a must for anyone looking for Peruvian-Italian fusion. The wait staff were incredibly attentive and we had a lovely evening.

The restaurant "El Paititi " (El Dorado) was once part of the palaces of the Inca nobility and was the residence of Tupac Yupanqui, the sovereign tenth Inca and successor of Pachacutec, who took correinado probably between 15 and 20 years. After the death of his father became absolute position of power around 30 years. The place was part of the religious and cultural center of the capital of the Inca empire. After the conquest was occupied by the Spaniards who surrounded him temples and built mansions. Our cuisine is complemented with Peruvian dishes from the region of Cusco , national and international . We also complemented with a proposal of Shushi , pastas and pizzas.
