Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our server Christian was excellent 🙂. The food plentiful, well presented and tasty. The pisco sours were the best we have sampled in Peru and at a good price during happy hour.

After searching for hotels near our hotel, we saw very good reviews for this restaurant and decided to give it a try. The food here was delicious and seasoned to perfection. Large portions and good prices. The meats were great. Our waiter, Cristian, was super...friendly and gracious. He made the evening incredibly enjoyable, providing great service, and checked up to ensure everything was ok. We even got to chat with him a bit about the native language Quechua which we found out he also speaks For a great meal out, we strongly recommend Mama JamaMore

Sunday night Mama Jama was recommended to us for dinner. We decided on the house speciality and we could not have had a better pizza. It was unlike anywehad ever had--absolutely wonderful! The staff was so friendly, especially our waitress, Silvano Castillo. She really made...our visit with her enthusiasm and her beautiful smile. We enjoyed our meal so much we returned the next evening for the same delicious experience. We were not disappointed!More

Indira was our waitress and she was very friendly! Great service and sociable. Nice small restaurant that is a bit outside of the tourist area of Cusco. Food was amazing! It was my first time having cow's heart and surprisingly delicious! Tasted like beef. Great...presentation for all our plates and I would definitely come back!More

Amazing authentic Peruvian food and exceptional service. If you are in the Cusco area, the Mama Jama restaurant is a stop you must include in your itinerary. Our group of 9 found this gem and had a great experience. Our waitress Indira, made our time...there even more memorable. She was beyond kind, attentive to detail and accommodated our needs. Indira thank you for making us feel welcomed and well taken care of!More

Wow, what a gem of a restaurant!! I would highly recommend this place, we arrived at the restaurant and were greeted by such a friendly lady called Indira, always smiling and very knowledgeable about the menu, really wanted to make us feel welcome and any...requests we had were accommodated 😁 Indira was fantastic but onto the food……omg it was 10/10, within 60seconds of looking at the menu I knew what I was going to have, I had the hot stone platter which was a hot stone that had a selection of meat sizzling away on top. The meats included beef, chicken, alpaca, pork and sausage, this was served with a salad and Peruvian potato’s and I did not regret my choice, the presentation and flavour were brilliant! You need to try this…..look at the pictures 😋More

I had an exceptional dining experience at Mama Jama. The trout dish was simply amazing, perfectly cooked and bursting with flavor. The service by Cuban Indina was impressively attentive, and I particularly appreciated the thoughtful recommendations. A must-visit for anyone who appreciates delicious food and...top-notch service.More
