Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

One of the best locations in Cusco for stopping for food or drink. Right across the street is the center of the city, the beautiful Plaza de Armas. They offer inside and outside seating plus second floor patio areas. BOTTOM LINE: Awesome location to take...time out for lunch or chill-out spot to enjoys the views. MY RATING: 7/10More

Tonight my group chose this bar as a last dinner and drinks before we all moved on from this part of our trips. The service wasnt great but the food and alcohol was ok for the price. After several hours it came time for us...to leave and to pay our bill (no pay as you go). After I payed 100 soles for my father and I, and the rest of my group not only payed their sgare but also left a tip, we somehow still owed 233 soles on a 801 soles bill. We explained seceral times how mych we payed and asked why one of the servers had brought us back 120 soles with no explanation, a server in a red gat was very aggressive and angry and kept saying our drunk friends out side (2 out of 9 people) needed to pay their share (it had already been paid). Im the end not only did we pay over 250 soles extra on our bill, they kept that 120 soles change for themselves aswell. We asked repeatedly for them to check the security camera above us to show what we had paid but they refused. It honestly ruined a great end to a trip gathering after we had survived the Inca Trsil.More

...which rounds down to 3. That's unfortunate because there's lots to love about 'Norton's', including: - a valid attempt at efficient, kind service - decent choices for your local/central pub; they have a few (meek) vegetarian choices, there are good Peruvian craft beers + ciders...- great location, with a fantastic (skinny) patio for viewing others/central Cusco - chill, welcoming vibe - great spot to meet up with your fellow hikers That said, it's an odd slippery slope of pride (location) with service (too crowded? timing?) that keep 'Norton' a humble 3-star rat. No harm visiting. Just know what to expect...More

We just grabbed a beer and sat outside in the sun and watched the courtyard. It's a really cool skinny balcony.

Take the opportunity to enjoy a beer with a view. The balcony offers lovely views of the Plaza de Armas - it was a little windy, so you might need a jacket. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the TV was showing premiership football, which...meant some people stayed for the whole afternoon. We ordered the chicken wings - delicious and delivered quickly. Very reasonable price.More

We visited whilst staying in Cusco and decided we wanted a bit of British food and beer after a couple of weeks of great Argentinian and Peruvian food. The place does have the feel of a British pub with Darts and Pool too, but the...overall cleanliness and food quality was only average. The toilets clearly aren't checked on a regular basis. The server did a good job but the food, wings and chips weren't great, with the chips undercooked. It could be so much better.More

This place feels a bit like a British pub mixed with an American bar. Wide range of beers. Nice balcony area with a view of the main square.

It almost doesn't matter what you are drinking, you are drinking on a balcony bar overlooking the Plaza de Armas! This is a tiny little balcony attached to a pub, very British, and a little edgy, but with an amazing balcony! I wanted an Irish...coffee, and seeing that perhaps it was out of keeping to order an Irish coffee in Peru, I ordered a cafe con leche and Kalua (no Baileys available today). My husband had a few cold beers, and we watched as the sun sank in the sky. The clouds were a show-all white a puffy and gray and looming. After a busy day, lots of shopping, and hiking, this was a welcome respite to recharge and admire. Take a moment to find this gem! It's off the square, and up the stairs!More

This pub tries to be a pub. It does have everything to make you believe. Pool table, darts, lots of beer and the walls are full with posters. However, it does not serve proper pub food. To my regret (or theirs) the first three beers...I tried to order weren’t in stock. Staff seems to be interested in themselves, rather than being a friendly host. Big plus, the balcony. But, if you cannot make it, please do not fake it...More

At the end of a long day we ended up here on the (narrow) balcony at this establishment. We squeezed in and sat and drank 2 beers with friends. It was fun watching the crowds below.

Deceptively much bigger inside than what it looks like from the street. It was busy as the football was on but we managed to get a decent table for drinks and some table service. There were some good two for one drinks offers on from...7pm which were really good value.More
