From the outset this looked like a perfect restaurant. We were sat overlooking the square, the waiter was friendly, chatty but not overbearing, the menu looked great!
I ordered the alpaca steak, my friend had the trout.
They arrived and all was well - my steak was excellent...
The trout however was undercooked and my fries were cold. This was very disappointing as this place had everything going for it...
We mentioned the trout when we asked for the bill - sadly the waiter did not want to know.
I don't think we will be back, which is a shame.

This was my home restaurant for five days. Great selection of tasty dishes - trout, alpaca, salmon, cuy (Guinea pig). Tasty free salad bar, efficient friendly service, pleasant atmosphere. Place popular both with the locals and tourists.

The pepper and salsa dressing they have for the salads were the absolute best. We also took the dressing tô have with our meal (pizza and meat skewers)

This was in one of the guide books our friend wanted to try it while in Cusco. The place is upstairs, elegant and tastefully decorated. With the meal you get the salad bar that had many interesting items. It was really fun to try.

Our group ordered the grilled chicken, alpaca steak. We all enjoyed our dinner. The cream of asparagus soup was also really good. We found the portion is quite generous.

It was one of the best meals while staying in Cusco.

We ate at this restaurant 6 times on our vacation. We couldn't get enough of the grilled chicken. Lomo, steak is fantastic as well.We all agreed that this is the best grill any of us have ever experienced. And it is a great value as well. It is a must try if you are in Cuzco.
