I had a wonderful vegan lunch special. There were two choices for the appetizer and the entree. I had am amazing vegan avocado "nachos" starter and a vegan paela for my entree. Both were delicious. The service was very relaxed and friendly the restaurant comfortable.

All there id to say about the Blue Alpaca: Outstanding alpacaburger! With a drink it only costs 15 Soles ($ 5). The service is great and really friendly. When we ate here the second time we even got a pisco sour for free-awesome!!!

After reading all the good reviews we were a bit disapointed with the food. The food was luke warm when it came out. The lama steak was nice and the sauce more so. The trout was dry and a bit tasteless. The service was good and the staff were friendly.

Had a fun time at the Blue Alpaca. The food was good and it was a great place to hangout with our friends and kids. The staff was very inviting. The Alpaca was not the best I had in Cusco, but still very good. Enjoyable experience.

I was drawn to this place because of its lovely artwork and creative menu options displayed on the street...I was so drawn to it, in fact, that I went two times! The ceviche was good, but the menu del dia (14/s) included salty mushroom soup (nachos with guacamole was better) and an OK quinoa burger. Really my problem with this... More

Carmen, the owner, was at the place when we arrived our first night in Cuzco. I was sick from my stomach and she went out of her way and prepared a soup that was Not on the menu which was savoury and light and yet strong enough to make me feel good again. She also prepared a medicinal Muña tea,... More

I came here for the alpaca, but the lovely waiter and chef recommended the cuy instead. Since I hadn't tried either, I went with the recommendation. Though still looking like a "tourist platter", I was quite satisfied with the guinea pig. It came as a large serving of potatoes and baked egg + cheese. The meat itself was tender and... More
