  • Pacha Papa

    Cusco Restaurants

    The evening after going to Machu Pichu, I went to this restaurant Pachapapa on the recommendation of the hotel I was staying at. The hotel provided the transportation so, it was an easy choice. i didn't want to explain directions to a taxi driver. I decided on the Lomo Saltado (I've never had it). The wait was not long (as expected on a rainy...

  • "United Mice" Inca Trail Guides

    Machu Picchu Restaurants

    Breakfast consisted of some drink (coffee, tea, cacao), cereals, milk, pancakes and bread with butter and jam. Not amazing but big enough to keep hiking all morning. There was usually a coffee break at 11 or so...

  • Govinda

    Cusco Restaurants

    Lila Govinda runs a 1.5-room kitchen and lunch spot, offering tea, delicious soups and overflowing main dishes for just 4 or 5 soles (about $1.50). Her café fills up with approving travelers, volunteers, and Cusquenos. Visit gracious, lovely, and engaging Lila, her 11-year-old son, and pet rabbit near San Blas Monday through Saturday. From the top...

  • Santuary Lodge a la carte

    Machu Picchu Restaurants

    According to the rules, you are not allowed to eat or drink in the Machu Picchu park. So, we opted to get our tickets stamped and leave the park to eat at the Sanctuary Lodge. Sure, we could have bought some food and ate on the picnic tables outside, but it was raining both days that we had lunch at Machu Picchu, so our options were limited to two...

  • Quinta Eulalia

    Cusco Restaurants

    I'm vegetarian so the menu was very limited for me. However, I dined with five other people who ordered various traditional dishes and they all enjoyed their meals. Beware...if you order the cuy (guinea pig) it is served whole and looks a lot like a fried biology experiement. A trio of musicians entertained us with traditional music. With the...

  • Combined Suggestions

    Machu Picchu Restaurants

    We were visiting the ruins with a guide and lunch was included so we went to the buffet at the Sanctuary Lodge. There was a large selection but on the whole I was disappointed. The room was very noisy and seemed more like a canteen than a restaurant in a five star hotel. There wasn't enough space between the tables, so it was hard to get to and...

  • Tunupa

    Cusco Restaurants

    This place has a very nice view of the Plaza from their restaurant. I decided to have the Buffet which was very pricy. They had a very large selection of different kinds of food. However me being a vegetarian my selection was limited. However the buffet include a drink(which I didn't have) as well as a wide selection of desert and coffee. Theye...

  • Inca Wasi

    Machu Picchu Restaurants

    We went for lunch to "Inca Wasi" restaurant, and most of the people got stomach problem after having their pizza. I had some sort of local version of shishkebob with alpaca which was OK (I didn't get sick).

  • Bagdad Cafe

    Cusco Restaurants

    Named after the German cult movie, this place serves good Peruvian, Mexican and other foods. There is a good range to choose from, and the serves are generous. Despite the name there is no evidence of flavours of the middle east, or any sign of sauerkraut. You might find the more mundane selections at a truckstop in the Mojave Desert, but not of...

  • Inti Killa

    Machu Picchu Restaurants

    The majority of us had pizzas and beers,lots of them,I think we were all shopped out and needed to recharge our batteries............... A local band came in ( as they tend to do ).Played a few tunes and sold a few CDs to the unsuspecting tourists, YES I bought one !!!!!!

  • Inka Grill

    Cusco Restaurants

    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...

  • Kusikuy

    Cusco Restaurants

    Another restaurant has taken it's place but didn't seem to offer Cuy on the menu. 2 doors down ( toward Plaza de Armes) was a nice little restaurant that offered Cuy, Alpaca, Trout etc. Price for Cuy about 2/3 of going rate on the menu's of big tourist restaurants on the Plaza. All three main dishes were excellent. The "Crow with Cheese" turned out...

  • Fallen Angel

    Cusco Restaurants

    Cusco has a lot of fun and inexpensive Andean restaurants, but only a couple in this restaurant's league. It's the most expensive in town, but it is well worth the splurge! A glassed-in corridor overlooks the handsome colonial patio of the former monastery, while the main dining room is a series of intimate rooms sumptuously decorated with...

  • Emperador

    Cusco Restaurants

    There are touts all around the arcades of Palza de Armas, imploring you to come upstairs to partake of their fare. The Emperador is a just one of many of these. We picked it mostly because we could secure a balcony view of the parades ion the square below. The food was OK for the price, neither stunning, nor poor. As always, the potato dish took...

  • Paititi

    Cusco Restaurants

    This is a friendly fairly up-market restaurant in the south east corner of the main square in Cusco, the Plaza de Armas. It serves traditional Peruvian cuisine (including cuy) and some international dishes too. I really wanted to try the cuy while in Peru (my motto when it comes to food is "try anything once - you might like it"); however having...

  • La Retama

    Cusco Restaurants

    Overlooking the Plaza de Armas from a huge second-floor space, La Retama is one of Cusco's most enduring favorites. The restaurant's walls are lined with the art and handicrafts of Peru. While it can feel a little touristy, the food is excellent. We loved the classic Peruvian dishes, such as pink trout and king fish from Lake Titicaca, seco de...

  • El Fogon

    Cusco Restaurants

    Though just off the Plaza de Armas, this is a tourist restaurant that seems to still cater to Peruvian tourists. The menu is in Spanish only and relies heavily on Peruvian standards. The decor is a bit tacky and the flourescent lighting irritating, you can't deny that you are in a true local place. This is a place to try lomo saltado (a beef strip...

  • Peruvian Nouveau Cusine

    Chicha is run by a world famous chef, Gaston Acurio, and is up stairs. It is named after a fermented corn drink invented by the Wari, who came before the Inca, and had breweries to keep their empire happy. Corn in a great variety of colors and shapes decorates the entry way. The food takes traditional Peruvian cusine and prepares it in new ways. We...

  • One of the coolest restaurants in...

    The vegetable soup was delicious - no small feat. The pasta was just right, al dente-wise. Servings are generous.The ambiance is contemporary and more like what would be found in West Hollywood than in Peru. Easy listening, familiar (Norah Jones, Leonard Cohen) music, soft lighting, comfortable couches, and tasteful decor make this a delightful...
