A great view of Plaza De Armas in Cusco (center of historic Cusco). Went there for a late lunch. Relaxed and people watched. Didn't really have high expectations for the food because of the view, but it was outstanding! Service was a little slow, but wasn't a real problem. The entrance is kind of hidden, but worth the search.

Thank seamgh

I know we ate here last night. But really, why spoil a good thing. The Lamb Chops tonight we're on point. The service is great. And for a restaurant on the main plaza the prices are fantastic. If you're visiting Cusco please don't short yourselves. Stop here. It is that good.

Passed out here our first afternoon in Cusco because of the altitude sickness. Great location, and be sure to grab a table overlooking the plaza. Service is friendly and there is free wifi. Awesome place to take a break and grab a snack. Best view in Cusco!

I ordered two delicious pizzas here - one I made of my own, and the other was the Bagdad special. I enjoyed both. I enjoyed all aspects of my experience here: food, atmosphere (cozy and warm while overlooking all of the Plaza de Armas) and service (happy to accommodate and patient with my limited Spanish ability).

Came here for a drink and the view over the Plaza de Armas during Inti Raymi and stayed for dinner. The staff are friendly and attentive, and speak fairly good English so it made ordering easy. The chicken curry was delicious! Generous chicken portion with apple and potato in an authentic yellow curry sauce. Small bites of ginger every so... More

I enjoyed this restaurant and it has a very good quinoa carne and bean soup. I also liked the view of the main square parades from our table. I think the soup cost 24 soles.

The menu is extensive and the prices are comparable to other restaurants in Cusco. I was feeling a little ill with altitude sickness so just had the chicken soup. The service was great and I wish I could have felt better to try more food.

Our group- 15 people- went there almost every evening during our stay in Cusco. We tried other places but there, food, service and view on Plaza de Armas were just great. And there was Odile, a French speaking waitress, so friendly and so nice and funny ! She really made the difference. We will not forget our wonderful evenings there... More

We settled on trying the set menu because it looked like good value and there was plenty of choice on the starters and mains. We both really enjoyed our selections. The staff were friendly and there is great views over the Plaza.

We came here for the cuy, since it was less expensive than other places in town. All of the food, including the stuffed peppers, potatoes, and sweet tamales was great. We ordered our cuy half baked and half grilled. Both were done well and brought out whole for a picture, then quartered after. The restaurant had a great view of... More
