This was my husband and my third trip to Cusco, and Uchu has become our favorite restaurant in Cusco. We had zero complaints and the food far exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend any of the stone cooked dishes, but particularly the alpaca. Make sure you have a reservation as it can be difficult to get in due to... More

We ate here our first night in Cusco. We had a so-so experience, could be due to some altitude sickness. We found the space beautiful and comfortable. We were seated pretty close to the kitchen, it can get really warm. We ordered a stuffed potato dish for an app, a combo of beef and fish to share. Food was good... More

One of the more expensive places in Cusco (comparatively by local standards), this restaurant is worth every sol! They have a great menu which specialises in mains of grilled meats, cooked just as you like them - order medium rare here and that's exactly what you will get! Too many restaurants massacre their meats but Uchu is not one of... More

We visited this restaurant on our first night in Cusco. It has a very modern interior and specialises in stone grilled meats. We both ordered the trio of stone grilled meats which comes with 4 typical Peruvian sauces and a side dish of your choice. We chose the mashed potatoes with peanut butter which was amazing. The food and the... More

This is the best restaurant we visited in Peru. We stopped in for lunch during our visit to Cusco. I had the stone cooked steak combination - 4 oz. Alpaca Tenderloin, 4 oz. Beef Tenderloin and 4 oz. Lamb Tenderloin. That's a lot of meat and it was extremely fresh/delicious/savory. My wife had the stone cooked Beef Tenderloin - which... More

Reservations recommended but the found a table for us after a short wait. I had the beef tenderloin, "crispy" potatoes, and a salad. In Texas, we would have grilled the meat over charcoal for better flavor, but at least they did not over cook the meat and the chimichurry sauce was good. With a beer, the cost of the meal... More

They take grilled meat seriously here. Well, really they take all food seriously. Uchu clearly puts a lot of thought and care into everything they make, and it pays off. Everything we had tasted fresh and amazing, and the presentation was off the hook -- the food was a delight for the eyes as well as the palate. Probably the... More

I wanted to try alpaca meat and it had seemed like a place to go. We went with a friendly early in the evening, as they were quite full later that night. I decided to get alpaca tenderloin and it was absolutely phenomenal. I asked the waitress what was the best way to have alpaca and she recommended medium, but... More

Description
Uchu's kitchen is inspired by classic Peruvian recipes touched with contemporary sophistication. We also play with new ingredients taking new flavors and creating unequable experiences for the palate. Carved wooden bases, volcanic stones prepared at high temperatures, an ample selection of surf and turf ítems from which to choose, native aji creams and aromatic herbs allow us to provide a unique dining experience for all. Located in a colonial home in the center of Cusco, exposed adobe walls, clay, aged wood, avant garde textiles, candles and crystals create an eclectic ambience in which to enjoy your experience.
