Went here as part of an organised tour, if I had my own choosing I would have looked up something on trip advisor and chosen that way, but I didn't have a choice in this instance. My partner and I got 2 entrees. The soup was so salty and the alpaca salad had 3 1cm slivers of alpaca with some... More

I think I have only ever given one 1* review before on TripAdvisor but this place more than earned it. We ordered from a set menu and it took us over an hour for our bowls of tepid, salty soup and alpaca-less alpaca salad to be bought out. In the meantime another large group who came in a long time...

First day in Cusco on holiday. The tour guide recommended the restaurant. The guide tools there. Most people already there were tourists. We just order main courses and drink. It took over 90 minute for the food to arrive. When they finally arrived my dish and my friend's beef were tough and not very hot. Staff didn't off an apology... More

We came here on the recommendation of a local who even came with us and sat with us during the meal. Great. They recommended the alpaca and it did not disappoint. Lovely Peruvian Cabernet Sauvignon and local beer to go with it. A lovely night out. Excellent service and very well priced. A hidden gem.

We stumbled into this hidden gem during our first day in Cusco. Service was good, albeit slow and unhurried. We ordered the trout ceviche (delicious), aji gallina (mediocre) and a bottle of vino tinto (very reasonably priced and also very good). We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We enjoyed a great dinner here after a long day of touring the Sacred Valley. The big hit was learning how to make Pisco Sours, which is the local drink. Our guide, Roxner, with Action Peru Treks recommended this restaurant and we were all pleased. I enjoyed carbing up on a large plate of Fettucini Alfredo before hitting the Inca... More

We didn't have any specific place in mind to eat and came across Ima Sumaq just walking around. First, the service was great and everyone was ver attentive to our order and requests. The food is made fresh to order so it didn't come out immediately, which you would expect for good quality food and it tasted delicious. The drinks... More

We ate at this restaurant twice during our stay in Cusco. The first time was lunch with our guide, the second was by ourselves for dinner. The staff remembered us! The menu has a good mix of local food and pastas etc. The staff were helpful and friendly. The food delicious and well cooked.
