“Great service, good food, slightly overpriced.”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Nice place right on the main Plaza. The service was outstanding, the waiter asked every course if everything was alright. The food was very good. I had a salad to start with (~ 7€), the Wok Spaghetti for the main course (~12€), which were spiced too light in my opinion and then had the maracuja mousse for desert (~ 6€)- it is to die for!
Overall a great lunch but in my opinion overpticed.

“Calle Del Medio”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

The restaurant is right on the Plaza de Armas, Cusco so you have some great views. Restaurant is nicely decorated, very clean, staff are very helpful and the majority have sufficient english to explain dishes for those of us whose spanish is not quite up to par. We found the food to be very good particularly the empanadas but dishes are very large so it is better to order as you go. Some dishes were not to our liking, the lamb shanks were a little too rich and not as tasty as we anticipated. Drinks were great and there were a number of local cocktails. All in all a very good find but beware portion sizes even for appetisers.

“Great value and friendly owner”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

Last night we had a dinner for 6. Good value over all. The owner was very charming and engaging. We wanted a light meal and you can't beat the location.

“Excellent Peruvian Cuisine with great view on central place of Cusco”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We were offered seating in the balcony what gave us great view on marvelous central place of the city. We decided to try local specialties so we started with Trout Cheviche, followed by the Chicken Soup and Grilled Trout with Spinach. We had a Coca Tea for altitude and a bottle of local Savignon Blanc. Service was good even girls had a little problems with English. Food was fresh, delicious and beautifully served.
