    This restaurant is located beside the Plaza de Armas street (did you hear it before?...), traditional live music, international and traditional foods.
    I recommend the Alpaca sirloin (alpaca, llama and guanaco belongs to the camel family, please don't say nothing to him...) or the cuy (similar to a small pork) with potatoes (more than 300 diffs kinds of) or covered with "kiwicha" .(typical gramineous from the mountains)
    I like the beer "Cusquenia", manufactured in this city and always fresh, or some white wines from the valleys. Enjoy the music, the food, wine and new friends. Salud!!

    Favorite Dish: Even so is an international cuisine restaurant, you can taste Cuy covered with kiwicha. Delightul.

    The Inka Grill on the Plaza De Armas: Good Coffee and Cuy

    According to some, the Inka Grill has the best coffee in Cusco. We stopped in for some espresso drinks and we must say that we were impressed.
    The Inka Grill also has quality meats, so this is where we stopped for a lunch of the local delicacy -- cuy. Most English-speakers will recognize cuy as guinea pig, a favorite food here since the pre-Inca times (archeological sites have been found with guinea pig remains). I will discuss the whole cuy eating experience under "Cultural Tips" as the Inka Grill serves far more than rodents. You can also get a fine steak (Lomo Saltado), a great chicken dish (like Andrea did) or even alpaca. All of it is delicious and well presented.
    And, of course, you can follow it by coffee. Yum!

    Inka Grill: Delicious, even without the cuy!

    Everyone told us we should go to this restaurant, as it is known as the premiere eating experience in Cusco. I was concerned that it might be an overrated tourist trap. Upon the recommendation of a local we met while marooned in the Lima airport, we decided to make the trip. The food was well worth the hype and cost. It was well worth it!
