My friend and I ate the "cuy al horno" and loved it! It is very very good, very tasty. We also had the maracuya sour and it was the best I have had in Cusco! Great service! Thank you:)

We went twice to this restaurant and twice we enjoyed the dinner very much. Very friendly service, excellent food with a number of complementary extras such as pisco sour. Nicely served. Deserves a higher ranking on Tripadvisor! Last but not least: good value for money.

The setting was very warm; the service, attentive and fast; and the pizza, simply exquisite. So, it's a highly recommended restaurant.

This restaurant was right across from my hotel, and was essentially my first meal in Peru. Everything ordered by my group was amazing. The restaurant gave us gratis pisco drinks, and the appetizer that came with the food was so good. I highly recommend this!

Stopped by for a quick lunch as it was one of the only restaurants opened today (national census). Our dishes were overly salty, but overall it was a good meal with the bread and choclo con queso that are complementary. Friendly staff and quick service.

Small, welcoming place. The service is good and the prices ok. The soup and the grilled trout where both very tasty. More than ok place in a quiet street.

Don Carlos is a good restaurant in a quite street. We ordered off the specials board, which was good value and lovely food. Peruvian food is a good mixture of a lot of different cultures. Friendly service and a clean restaurant.
