We went down Choquechaca because a local told us there were good restaurants with reasonable priced Cuy on this street. The Cuy was good and so was the aji gallina and one in our party is a vegetarian and had grilled vegetables on stone which he said was execellent. This is a fairly large place, we went sort of between... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat after the tiring city tour and came across this nice looking restaurant. There was only one staff member and a couple of clients that left soon. We sat at the cozy tables upstairs and, after waiting for several minutes for the waiter, ordered quinoa soup and the mixed meat cooked on stone. The... More

On our first day in Cusco, we had taken a free walking tour and were told there are a bunch of restaurants located on Calle Choquechaca where you could get dinner. So, we stumbled into El Canjon del Naupa. A bunch of us ordered the Peruvian Chicken in Creamy Walnut Sauce with Chili (Ají de Gallina) thinking it would be... More

We stumbled across this restaurant in the way back from Sacsayhuaman - we were starving so the quick service and tasty food were very welcome. It's a nice little restaurant and the staff were friendly, although after our first meals came we were somewhat abandoned. Nice choice of food, nothing too fancy but just what we were looking for after... More

Out of the way from the main square, we found this by accident walking back from Christo Blanco at the top of the hill. Good choice of Peruvian food with a bit of Italian mixed in. Quite cheap and big portions, definitely worth the walk. The only downside was the staff were very laid back and quite slow at times... More

We ate in this restaurant last night and really enjoyed our food. Tenderloin of beef cooked perfectly, with mashed potatoes and salad, delicious. Stone grilled pork also delicious and well presented. Excellent well priced menu, comfortable setting and friendly staff. Will be using it again during our stay here.

I have passed by this restaurant many times on the walk from San Blas to the Plaza de Armas and always admired their menu. However I rarely have time to stop for a sit down lunch so I haven't tried it...until yesterday. I had the vegetarian lasagna and it is definitely one of the best veggie lasagnas I've ever had....
