We stumbled across this restaurant while cold and hungry and was invited by not pushy tauter. We follow him upstairs and there it was. Cosy and tastefully decorated with pleasant music. The food was delicious and we couldn't believe it costs only 15 soles. Limo Saltado was the best I had in Peru. Waiter was happy and courteous English speaking... More

Unlike other places in Cusco, live music here starts earlier, at approx 8:30 PM. They have happy hour (two for one) and the local crew inviting people to the bar. Snacks are good, pisco sour too. Inside design is something between colonial and english pub furniture. Nice place for a drink, talk, dancing and/or meeting people. Staff is friendly, but... More

I apologise in advance for the length of my review, but I feel like our experience at the Cross Keys warrants it... We were beyond impressed. The bar itself - an "English pub", as it turns out, in all but appearance- is beautiful. A sweet second floor joint tucked away from the busier more touristic areas of town. We found... More

This pub has great selection of beers, including ales like Old Speckled Hen or Delirium tremens. Great music - live - rock from my young days. Excellent snacks - chicken wings, cold cuts, olives, bread and cheeses, cheese tortillas - good food. Great ambiente - mix of English pub and Cusco colonial furniture - bright service. We enjoyed it tonight,... More

Stumbled upon this place after dinner one night and to my delight we found a lovely selection of craft beers that are made locally. I wasn't expecting much from the IPA having read weak reviews on Peruvian craft beers, but this IPA was pretty solid. They had live music the night we went, mostly classic rock and the staff was...

On the 2nd floor of a building @ Triunfo 350 and I called in for a couple of beers only on 2 occasions. Very enjoyable staff to talk to and it was clean and I would have liked to visit it again. Worth a visit as the Crystal beers were very cold and very nice. Should I visit Cusco again... More

I'm an Irish Rugby fan, and was frustrated when Cusco's Irish Pub wouldn't show the Irish Match. So I went the the English Pub, The Cross Keys, and they couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. They changed their channels to accommodate me, and even recorded the game so I could come back and watch it again if I liked.... More

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a guide with a large group. Our visit was booked. There was already a large group at this restaurant and although drinks were ordered and delivered to tables after about 30 minutes food orders were not taken until about an hour had elapsed. Food delivery was hit and miss with some of... More
