Seven of us visited this restaurant for an evening pizza. Firstly the beer was very reasonable, and then the pizza proved to be totally fresh and beautifully made. They tasted superb. the staff were so friendly too, I recommend this place.

Been here 3 times consecutively, the food and cocktails are always delicious and the view of the square is perfect. Highly recommended!

Nice cozy place with a great view of Plaza de Armas. Delicious food and the chicha morada was the best I've tried even after going around several towns and cities in Peru. The friendly manager speaks English in case you haven't brushed up on your Spanish.

A great view of Plaza De Armas in Cusco (center of historic Cusco). Went there for a late lunch. Relaxed and people watched. Didn't really have high expectations for the food because of the view, but it was outstanding! Service was a little slow, but wasn't a real problem. The entrance is kind of hidden, but worth the search.

I know we ate here last night. But really, why spoil a good thing. The Lamb Chops tonight we're on point. The service is great. And for a restaurant on the main plaza the prices are fantastic. If you're visiting Cusco please don't short yourselves. Stop here. It is that good.

Passed out here our first afternoon in Cusco because of the altitude sickness. Great location, and be sure to grab a table overlooking the plaza. Service is friendly and there is free wifi. Awesome place to take a break and grab a snack. Best view in Cusco!

I ordered two delicious pizzas here - one I made of my own, and the other was the Bagdad special. I enjoyed both. I enjoyed all aspects of my experience here: food, atmosphere (cozy and warm while overlooking all of the Plaza de Armas) and service (happy to accommodate and patient with my limited Spanish ability).

Came here for a drink and the view over the Plaza de Armas during Inti Raymi and stayed for dinner. The staff are friendly and attentive, and speak fairly good English so it made ordering easy. The chicken curry was delicious! Generous chicken portion with apple and potato in an authentic yellow curry sauce. Small bites of ginger every so... More

I enjoyed this restaurant and it has a very good quinoa carne and bean soup. I also liked the view of the main square parades from our table. I think the soup cost 24 soles.

The menu is extensive and the prices are comparable to other restaurants in Cusco. I was feeling a little ill with altitude sickness so just had the chicken soup. The service was great and I wish I could have felt better to try more food.
