I love peruvian food, but sometimes I need a change of pace. On a recent visit I found this unique English? pub and was pleasantly surprised at the warmth and quality of the food. There is no fancy food here, just great pub food, wings and other fried foods served with a great choice of beers. But my all time... More

I was hoping to see the owner, a birdwatcher who had accompanied Michael Palin on one of his TV adventures. In fact I was the only customer in the place on my visit, but the barmaid was friendly and helpful; she took a photo of me on my camera, drinking a very pricey pint of Old Speckled Hen.

Great service, fantastic food, fair prices, and very friendly staff. I went in for dinner, Naturally, due to proximity to the Plaza, prices are a bit higher. Totally okay with me -- very well decorated, clean, great tasting food, huge variety of beer/liquor/food, free WiFi, and they take Visa/MC as well. Sat around for an hour or two speaking with...

We were the only customers eating, the other max 6 pax were just drinking, we were 5 and we waited more than 40 min... More

Following our disappointment at Paddys Pub we went to the Cross Keys and were delighted. The pub is clean, comfortable and good value. Footie fans have plenty of English Premiership to watch as well. The toilets were spotless which is always a good sign.

Cross Keys has a good internet connection, and is a great place to get some work done during the day. It's generally quiet and has a nice fireplace. The food is pretty good- the quinua crusted chicken fingers are tasty and interesting. However, the service can be really slow. I'm not sure why it always takes 15 or more minutes... More

We were out roaming the streets and plazas of Cusco and came across this English Pub not far off of the main Plaza de Armas. It was a good spot for lunch. There was a soccer game on the TV. The menu looked good but we just had the pizza...which was good. It was a rare sunny day (rainy season)... More

My friend and I decided to do a little pub crawl through Cusco on her last night of vacation, and we ended up here at the end of the night for pub food and drinks. The place was pretty empty, but nice. I was planning to get a beer or whiskey, but they had a martini drink special that I... More
