This is a great spot that is off the beaten track from the main square (although it's not far away). You have to try the cuy here. We got the fried version while many other people got the roasted version. The dish itself reminds me of fried turkey --- I actually enjoyed the stuffed pepper the most (serve with this... More

I Loved this restaurant. Tasteful renovation of old home giving it a beautiful, peaceful ambiance. Food is fantastic and very reasonably priced. Varied menu with nice selection of Peruvian dishes. It's the perfect place to experience "cuy" and we were treated to a shot of pisco after the meal. Attentive, personal staff. Also good place to relax with a cold... More

Happy to have found this place to taste the typical Peruvian dish: cuy - guinea pig. Me and my husband had a great time in this place thanks also the hospitality of the staff and the owner Luciano. The cooking lasts 1 hour but we passed a pleasant hour tasting some starters, the cusquena beer and talking with other fan... More

We listened to the previous reviews and came for the cuy (guinea pig for the gringos). The trout and the anticucco were amazing and the cuy was everything we expected and more. The pisco sours were the best in Cusco and everything was great value. Special shout out to Luciano, an amazing host for a great afternoon.

I had to try cuy cuy so based on the reviews this place came up. Ordered 2 pisco sours which were good! We started with an avocado dish which was amazing. We dipped our bread in it and it was addictive. Then it was time for the cuy. Omg it was so good. It came with a potato croquet and... More

We ate here in May 2017 and it was absolutely delicious. We started off with the ceviche, delicious but spicy. A couple piano sours as well. My parents ordered the anticucho alpaca which was delicious and my wife and I of course got the Cuy, also delicious! More price than other places but worth it. The owner Luciano was very... More

We saw an add for this place at our hotel. We wanted to find some good Peruvian food for lunch and though why not. We strolled some interesting streets and made our way. I prefer an experience instead of the expected. This place hit it out if the park. From the moment we walked in, Luciano, made the magic happen.... More

This was an excellent recommendation from our tour guide for the typical Cuy dish. The atmosphere of the place is incredible nice and the food was delicious. It is a bit of walk, but totally worth it. If you are looking for the traditional Cusco cuisine on a very reasonable price, this is the place you must visit. The owner,... More

This is the place to go if you're looking for the full cuy experience. Granted, this was the first and only time I've tried cuy but it was really neat. They present the cuy twice, once for pictures (think playing with food) then later prepared for consumption. The meat was moist and the skin was crispy too. Don't forget the... More
