I was amused by some of the other reviews... I am actually unsure if we are even reviewing the same place. My nephew and I visited on a Monday afternoon for a snack and a cup of coffee. Both were excellent. He toured the coffee museum while I caught up on s few emails while relaxing at an outside balcony... More

This is a must in Cusco night Specially is you are for fun, and want to dance and enjoy with good music, this is the place. But don´t expect good food or great drinks. This is beer, and fun fun fun.

I've been to the Muse several times while I've lived in Peru. I've always enjoyed myself and especially enjoy the fact that they have live music every night. But the reason I love the Muse is Salsa night. Every Friday and Saturday night are salsa nights. They have a great band and everyone enjoys themselves. The drinks are reasonably priced... More

I personally am not a fan at all of the atmosphere in this bar: I went once and just couldn't wait to to leave! It's full of 'bricheros' (locals looking for a nice foreign girl), checking each and every girl out as she walks by. If this was the first bar you visited in Cusco, you wouldn't know there was...

This restaurant is located close to the Plaza de Armas. It is quite a big restaurant so I don´t think you need to reserve. It has a laid back feel to it which I enjoyed. The food and service were excellent. I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

I had a great time dancing to a local salsa band here with friends I met on Salkantay Trek! The first time I went it was a Saturday night and it was totally packed and bumping. I actually ran into several other travelers I knew there. The second time it was a Monday and it was pretty dead, but I... More

Wednesday night trivia? No brainer. If you're interested in connecting to the local expat scene then the trivia night is the place to be. In this case you get a great atmosphere, excellent questions (thanks Scott!!!!) and great food/prices, which on it's own separates this from other tourist joints nearby. If you can't make it for trivia, head here for... More

Unfortunately we came across this place on the last night. The waitress was at best disinterested, it took over the 30 minutes just to order our drinks. Some 2 hours later the food arrived and achieved the feat of being both cold qnd massively overcooked. Avoid.
