“Very bad service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

The food was delayed about 90 minutes! Then, the pisco sour wasn't nice. Poor service, but it is very cheap compared to others restaurants around Cusco. The atmosphere wasn't good either.

“A good meal in a nice restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

I dropped in here alone for a quick meal as it is near my hotel. It looks expensive with the white table cloths and silver service, but a quick check of the menu revealed that prices are more or less on par with "normal" restaurants, so in I went.

Apart from one other table I was alone in the restaurant, and the service was exemplary. They brought out the complimentary pisco sour and starters, which comprised of some crunchy corn accompanied by a couple of really nice dips.

I ordered trout, which came with rice and vegetables. The fish was done to perfection.

I would give five stars, except it felt a little lonely in there all on my own, but highly recommend for a great night out . My bill came to 35... the grilled trout and a bottle of water.

“Well presented Peruvian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

As part of our trip to Cusco, we wanted to try the local delicacy of Guinea pig (Cui) and these guys did a great job of making and presenting the dish. They also offered free Welcome drinks (Pisco Sours) with some appetizers.The service was good and we enjoyed the meal. Happy to recommend this place to anyone wanting good service and great local food.
