If you feel like waiting 2 hours for your main courses, come here. When the food finally arrived it was decidedly average. What a waste of time! There are many better places in Cusco, do not waste your time and money!More

Definitely worth paying a visit if you're in the mood for Cuy. The presentation was as good as the food was delicious. Luciano was a great server. It's a short walk from Plaza de Armas, and well worth the visit
