I had been to the Candiles Restaruant in Cusco on my first trip in 2009 and decided to go back again in March of 2014 and to my delight it was still there and we had a great dinner. Started with one of the best Pisco Sours I have had which include many restuaruants in the US and of course... More

The restaurant is clean, food is excellent, price is affordable. What more can you ask for? I had the "menu" and I was able to try 3 different plates plus a drink. The staff was very friendly. highly recommend. I do not remember the exact price, but once you convert to USD the price is not bad at all. Compared... More

This is an establishment to get a tasty and filling meal. Since 2004, for each stay in Cusco, I have always eaten in this restaurant at least once or twice. Always have had a hearty and flavorful meal. I like the "ají de gallina". Service is congenial, especially if you initiate the conversation (en español), I have had the same... More

It was... More

I invited friends to dinner last night and we were met by a street hawker hyping the restaurant. We went there to be met by a waiter who was rude, arrogant and condescending. They did not have the items we ,ordered. We ended up with warm watery soup. When we asked for bread we were told they were out. Crackers?... More

This is one of the worst restaurants I have ever eaten at. We ordered a rocoto relleno as an appetizer, my girlfriend ordered trout and I opted for the cuy (guinea pig) al horno. The rocoto tasted of nothing, but was inoffensive. The trout was bad. The cook had cooked it at too high a temperature, as the white albumen... More
