Peru Restaurants

  • Pacha Papa

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • La Rosa Nautica

    4 out of 5 stars

    Lima Restaurants

    Dispite the media and local security guards warning, we found it extremely safe and secure in wandering around that market place, foods are extremely cheap, full of local people, just a few of us tourist. Spanish speaking in communication at all time, is a must, and of course, body language is a plus, just point to what you want or sit down and...

  • "United Mice" Inca Trail Guides

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    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...

    Lima Restaurants

    I had the scallops melt in your mouth type cusine with cream in the shell. I also had the Lamb the meat close to the bone was soft and excellent but the outter part was a bit tough. I need to return and try more dishes here. its that good. The prices are a bargain for Peruvian Cusine back home easily twice the price if not 3 times in San Francisco.

    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 !!!!!!

  • Quinta Eulalia

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • Santuary Lodge a la carte

    3 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • Kusikuy

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • Combined Suggestions

    2 out of 5 stars

    Machu Picchu Restaurants

    Having already mentioned that we took advantage of the buffet lunch at the Tinkuy Restaurant which was included in our tour, I'd still like to mention 2 more options for where to eat during your time at Machu Picchu -- 1) The "Tampu Restaurant Bar" -- located inside the Sanctuary Lodge, offers fine dining in a nice setting with a view for lodge...

  • Inka Grill

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • 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

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • Fallen Angel

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    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...

    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...

  • Emperador

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • La Retama

    4 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • Paititi

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • 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...

  • Best food in Cusco!

    You WILL NOT be disappointed with this restaurant! The staff was awesome, the food magnificent. I had the lasagne and it was great! Friend had Alpaca steak and it was the best we have tasted anywhere in Peru on our 18 day trip! Great wine list, too! Al Paca steak and lasagne.

  • Choice place for churros!

    Manolo Cafe is mentioned in many tourist guidebook and for good reason. It is a great place for an afternoon coffee and churros rellenos. Each afternoon after sightseeing and shopping we would stop here and refuel. The churros with manjar blanca (caramel) filling are delectable. After about three of them with a tea or coffee, I was ready to go. The...

  • Killer find in Barranco

    I was walking about Barranco and literally under "el puente de los suspiros" saw this restaurant that looked like an oasis in the middle of a few tacky places. It has an open bar facing a zen garden and the dining room structure is separated from the bar. It is was done by feng-shui experts and it is zen. The bar has couches and it is just nice to...

  • Eat like a king for pennies!

    The Inka Grill was one of the nicest restaurants we ate at while in Cusco. It's a very stylish, contemporary restaurant for the area we were in. The food was elegantly prepared and plated and was extremely tastey. The ambience and the service were really good. We would have thought we were dining in a NYC restaurant if we didn't know any better!...

  • Bembos

    If you like to have a fast food dinner I would recommend you to try Bembos and not the Burger or McDonalds one. They are a bit cheaper, bigger and much more delicious!!! Combo Lomo Saltado

  • Gem near the ocean

    Stumbled upon this great place on 176 Moore. The Chef, Milenka Zapata literally translated the whole menu to us. Now we were the first 2 people there so he had the time to do it. He had suggestions but we chose the ceviche. Fish was perfect and tender. The ceviche broth was pleasantly spicy. The fondue of 3 mixed cheeses and tiny crusts of bread...

    Fallen Angels ~ Good food, strange owner (who apparently grows his own salads). Good Ambience.Paddy's Bar ~ Massive burger and chips The starter of Salmon with a home made pesto sauce. Lovely !Also a lovely beef casserole. Everything was good.

  • Cuy

    I have eaten cuy 5 times and in each it was very different. The most dramatic was in Urubamba where is was served whole, stuffed with herbs and dramatically presented. It was crisp on the outside, with lots of tender meat and then the flavor of the herbs. The second time it was just the very tasty meat of a stew, and the third time in Chupay it was...

  • Churros famous in Lima

    I do not have a picture, but the taste remains a memory. This is a picture from the corner steps of the cathedral side of the main plaza in in Lima. If you take the street the little yellow taxi is going on for a block (or it could be 2) you will come to an old place with authentic churros from Spain. There are cheaper imitations on the same...

  • Great value set lunch

    Toqoqachi Restauarant is great value. An excellent set lunch of quinhua soup, grilled trout and a pisco sour cost just S/.10. I ate lunch here nearly every day I was in Cuzco. It's a small, cosy family restaurant and the staff are really friendly.

  • menu economico

    Of the many Cuzco restaurants offering a menu economico, Mijunanchis Restaurant offers the greatest variety of choices. The food is very good too. A set meal costs just S/.10. For this, I had avocado salad, pumpkin soup, steak and chips. Amazing!An added bonus is that as it's on the second floor and has a balcony, there is a nice view down the...

  • Try it all

    Peruvian's want tourist's obviously and this country has not been spoiled yet. They go out of their way to make things taste good and look good. I have eaten in a lot of high end restaurant's and they could not touch some of the little diners we ate at. Alpacha, is awesome, but I recommend have it cooked. I got sick after eating samishi, but it...

  • Don't Miss The Guinea Pig

    A delightful restaurant in Miraflores, Lima that specializes in grilled dishes. We had a wonderful grilled guinea pig and a grilled strip steak. Both were done to perfection. The guinea pig was juicy and served on a plate over hot coals. We were served by an english speaking waiter whose service was beyond the expected. Overall a first rate...

  • Great Meal at a low price

    When you go to Aguas Calientes, search for India Feliz, this is the best resturant for money and amazing food. You will be bombarded by so many other local eatieries but this place is increible. The food is a mixture of Peruvian and French cuisine and the results are amazing presentations, and great flavor. When you go ask the local where is this...

  • Mango's by the ocean

    Mango's is known for its breakfast and bruch buffets on the weekends. They serve up a good selection of salads, sandwiches, desserts, coffee drinks. They also have a bar. Quite a trendy place. There is an ice cream/gelato place outside which always had a pretty long line of customers. I tried it and it was quite excellent.

  • Peruvian style Chinese food

    I had to find out what Peruvian style Chinese food was, and I was not dissappointed. The owner told me that there were about 1 million Chinese immigrants living in Lima, which was very surprising. This style of food is very popular in Peru, evident by the number of Chifa restaurants. I had a combo meal for lunch (soup, lemon chicken, rice, fresh...

  • Dinner and a Show

    We had a fun first night in Cusco at El Truco. I really enjoyed the two different bands and the dancers (NB. they do charge an extra 7 soles/~$2US for the show).The place has a nice, if not a little touristy atmosphere. My dish was quite average (spicy chicken, which wasn't spicy at all), though others in my group really enjoyed their meals. I was...
