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....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...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...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...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....More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
How can this restaurant described as 'vegeterian friendly' when in most pictures you can notice that the high light meal is an entire cooked Cuy served with a tomato on his head as decoration. . I have nothing against carnivores, but it's totally bias to define this restaurant as 'friendly' just in order to be political correct. .

When I visited, they didn't take any cards. Some bureaucratic problem from switching address recently. This may have changed, but don't count on it.
