We tried to get into the No 1 on trip advisor but they were booked out. So we just stopped at the next place in the street. Service was excellent and food was very good for the price, the main clientele were locals so I suppose that gives you a prety good indication of the current food being served. i... More

Our first meal in Cusco. We both selected the menu of the day. We started with the quinoa soup, which had a delicious flavor and freshness. For the entree, we enjoyed the alpaca a la plancha (stone grilled alpaca). It was tender and also full of flavor. The Cusqueña beer became our go-to dinner drink on the trip, mostly due... More

The food was good, typical Peruvian dishes in the menu. WiFi works and the staff was friendly. The prices are OK.

A group of seven of us enjoyed a meal here. We tried the cuy, which was an interesting experience and tasted great. The service was wonderful and the waiter showed us how the locals eat the cuy - very interesting! Not a dish for the faint hearted, but there was plenty of other good food on the menu as well,...

The restaurant has great location, right next to the plaza de armas, quite touristic and around 20 soles per person. Food is pretty good, true Peruvian food. Be careful with rocoto! So so spicy. And the service is sooooo slow, they're nice guys though

We had lunch here after our city tour. The place is very cramped and tiny. We sat towards the back and we were so squeezed in. We ordered our food. Their style is you choose one of the five soups offered, quinoa, mushroom, tomato or squash. Then you select your main entrée which can be trout, lomo, chicken or any... More

We ate hear on several occasions and always found the food to be very good and the staff friendly and accommodating. The menu has a good variety of dishes, something for most people and the prices are reasonable compared to other restaurants in town.

Traditional Peruvian food at good prices. I tried the Alpaca and Mrs. Had the stuffed peppers. Great food great prices. Service great too but a tad slow. Maybe they were short staffed

My husband ordered Aji De Gallina a spicy chicken in pepper cream sauce: it wasn't massively spicy, he liked it but as he normally prefers his meat straight, he wouldn't choose it again, I went for Lomo Saltado: Alpaca w fried potatoes tomato onions rice & Chips! This was my first taste of Alpaca 😳 however I was pleasantly surprised... More
