Great atmosphere in the chic dining experience. Very cool vibe, with involved owner/manager who wants to deliver an outstanding customer experience. This place is known for their CUY (Guniea Pig) - a Peruvian delicacy. Super FUN experience with great photo ops. The Cuy is delivered whole for the shock factor to the table - love it...then they happily cut it... More

This place was recommended for trying guniea pig ! We first had starters, since the guniea pig takes an hour to prepare. I has the guacamole with chips, my boyfriend had avocado with vinaigrette. Both were outstanding, though the vinaigrette was a bit too acidic. The guniea big is a bit like a skinny chicken and difficult to eat. Compliments... More

Came here just to try the Cuy. With friends shared a fried and a baked Cuy. The fried was ready within 30 mins, the baked takes around 1hr. They bring the Cuy out whole for picture opportunities then take it back to the kitchen to cut it up for eating. Overall I didn't really enjoy the taste however it was... More

I really wanted to try cuy here because the of all the rave reviews. The presentation was interesting but the actual taste was not the greatest. The skin looked really crispy but we could barely cut it, it was so chewy and rubbery. The meat was not cooked all the way - still red. We ended up eating about 1/4... More

This is a great spot that is off the beaten track from the main square (although it's not far away). You have to try the cuy here. We got the fried version while many other people got the roasted version. The dish itself reminds me of fried turkey --- I actually enjoyed the stuffed pepper the most (serve with this... More

I Loved this restaurant. Tasteful renovation of old home giving it a beautiful, peaceful ambiance. Food is fantastic and very reasonably priced. Varied menu with nice selection of Peruvian dishes. It's the perfect place to experience "cuy" and we were treated to a shot of pisco after the meal. Attentive, personal staff. Also good place to relax with a cold... More

Happy to have found this place to taste the typical Peruvian dish: cuy - guinea pig. Me and my husband had a great time in this place thanks also the hospitality of the staff and the owner Luciano. The cooking lasts 1 hour but we passed a pleasant hour tasting some starters, the cusquena beer and talking with other fan... More

We listened to the previous reviews and came for the cuy (guinea pig for the gringos). The trout and the anticucco were amazing and the cuy was everything we expected and more. The pisco sours were the best in Cusco and everything was great value. Special shout out to Luciano, an amazing host for a great afternoon.

I had to try cuy cuy so based on the reviews this place came up. Ordered 2 pisco sours which were good! We started with an avocado dish which was amazing. We dipped our bread in it and it was addictive. Then it was time for the cuy. Omg it was so good. It came with a potato croquet and... More
