This restaurant serves delicious Peruvian cuisine made even better by the story behind each dish/ingredient. The ambiance is lovely as well! I would however recommend to avoid the chocolate cake. This dry cake was the least appetizing part of our meal.

It's awesome, but you should make reservations first (it's kinda of a small place and really busy). Food is amazing, definetely worth it.

We absolutely loved Faustina’s! The restaurant has a very tasteful and interesting decor. This is a family restaurant, and many of the recipes are the grandmothers’, namely, Faustina. There is a magnificent painting in the dinning room of Faustina, and she watches intently as one...More

In all honesty, the food (Ceviche and Tagliatelle with Alpaca medallions, a rich chicken soup and Trout) deserved four stars, but the setting and service were exceptional. The day before Machu Picchu, my knees thanked me for finding a restaurant that didn’t require climbing stairs.
