“Great food and service!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

Located right next to the Temple Del Sol. Very attentive staff, the manager Angelo, was very friendly and we had a nice conversation about Cusco, the weather and where my wife and I were from. Food was excellent (Lomo Saltado) was amazing! Thanks to the staff for a great lunch!

Thank Daniel G

“A great disappointment”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Had been advised the restaurant was Asian fusion nouvelle cuisine.
About 36 of us booked in. Service was chaotic, had to ask 5 times just to get some water.
Tried two of the tapas and enjoyed . Ceviche de champignons and quest Fritos which were fine. Others on the table didn't fare so well.

“Worth the effort of seeking it out”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

The entrance is on the main thoroughfare next to the Qorikancha convent, but the restaurant itself is tucked away on the second floor, through a courtyard, up some stairs, down the balcony. That said, it is well worth wandering around looking for a table. I went twice; once by myself for lunch (the service was rather slow although the restaurant was empty), then with a group a week later for dinner. The staff that evening was ncredibly attentive and prompt. The food was unbelievably good, the presentation worthy of $$$$ restaurants, but without the commensurate cost. The alpaca with quinotto was perfect; on my second visit I tried the pumpkin ravioli - sublime. There's a decent wine selection, mostly consisting of Chilean vintages.

“Excellent soups and cuy!”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

We went there two nights in a row during our August trip. The service is a little bit slow, but the food was great!! I just loved the corn soup with trout, it was delicious! My husband had cuy (guinea pig) and he loved it! It is a bit more expensive than the other local restaurants, but if you enjoy a nicely prepared and decorated dishes, it´s a place to go! They just need to speed up the service a bit..

“Food Was Good, Service Was Bad”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

My title says it all--while there were some very nice items on the menu (and everything our group ordered was good), the service was painfully slow. If you have plenty of time to kill, I would consider this place. If you are in a hurry or don't want to spend your vacation time sitting in a restaurant, I would likely avoid this place.
