Had lunch here on my last day in Cusco. Needless to say how slow it is, as this is the norm in Peru. They forgot to tell me the salad buffet is free and after a long wait, my food almost got cold while I...More

This was my home restaurant for five days. Great selection of tasty dishes - trout, alpaca, salmon, cuy (Guinea pig). Tasty free salad bar, efficient friendly service, pleasant atmosphere. Place popular both with the locals and tourists.

Awful place. I ordered steak medium rare. It came with a handful of fries. The steak was blue so I sent it back. It came back smoking and totally charred on the outside, still blue in the middle. Two mouthfuls and I gave up on...More
