Luciano made sure that our first Kuy experience was amazing! He made sure that we knew what we were ordering and how to eat the dish. He was very attentive (without being annoying). We had the roasted Kuy. 10/10 recommend! Tastes like a saltier chicken....More

We spent 125 soles + tips for a delicious dinner (Peruvian Guinea Pig, Vegetable Soup, Stuffed Avacado with Vegetables, a cup of tea and hot chocolate) The atmosphere was nice and romantic 🕯, warm service. Recommend it for others.

If you want to try typical peruvian food go to KusiKuy. It's the best place to try the guinea pig. Price is 70 Soles. You get the stuff you see in the pictures.

Bias? Last time I checked, "vegetarian friendly" meant that there were options for vegetarians or that they could modify items on the menu. If you have a problem seeing a whole cuy on a plate, you have a problem with... More
