During our trip to Cusco we ate here twice. Best guinepig in town as well as other tradional Peruvian dishes. Cosy place and friendly staff. Must visit if you are in Cusco

If you want to try typical peruvian food go to KusiKuy. It's the best place to try the guinea pig. Price is 70 Soles. You get the stuff you see in the pictures.

I spent a couple of hours here with two friends to eat an authentic Peruvian meal. Everything that Juan our very attentive waiter brought out was delicious. The drinks were fantastic as well. Next time I'm in Cusco I will certainly be back!

I can't remember seeing Pigeon on the menu, but I have eaten them in France and they were delicious. Also both meals I had at Kusikuy were very good.
