Very good food we had the vegetarian TABULA it was really good, my friends had the trout and chicken, they have very big portions the desert susperos, it was so good a bit pricy we were 5 and paid 76 each, but it was worth it.

Gaston lives up to reputation. Would have eaten every meal here if I could have gotten reservations. Plan ahead for this. #worthit. Try the guinea pig, the way he prepares it will remind you of duck Chinese style Yum. And cocktails of course!

Had dinner here but found the food quite bland. We tried the guinea pig and it was a little like chicken/ crossed with pork! (When in Rome and all that)! It would be wrong to critique the food as it is just different from what we are used to in the UK. Service was good and clean with open kitchen.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by friends in our tour group. The food was very good, but the service we received was not top notch. Nice atmosphere. Moderate to high prices.

Pisco sours were amazing. Like 8 different kinds including cinnamon. The food was all excellent and service was good too. Strongly recommend a visit. Got out at about 50$ per person.

Reserved two months ahead but there was a long line and crowd which one has to fight through to get to the reception. The man there has the typical attitude that those in control of the reservations do at such high demand places. Not sure why perhaps it is the petty power that the job gives or the harassment they...

Following the recommendation of friends, I visited Chicha hoping to get a great meal during my first night in Cuzco. The waiting area is cramped. Host could be more organized and move things quicker. The food, Empanadas and alpaca carpaccio, were just ok. Chips felt stale and empanada dough didn't taste fresh. For the price, I'd go elsewhere.

I booked well in advance in Chicha just to make sure that we had a table as Chicha is well written up, recommended and relatively hard to get into. It is of the stable of Gaston Acurio- (he of Astrid & Gastrid and other establishment fame)- so we had high expectations of Chicha. I have to say that I felt... More

We were recommended this place by the staff at Maido. We were so glad they told us to eat here. It's an interesting mix of local food and things you would remember from each home. We had the capybara and empanadas to start and both set the tone for the meal. Both had a tone of flavour and each bit... More
