Pachapapa is so great that we went twice during our 7 day trip to Peru. First for the famous pizza with cured alpaca and second for the guinea pig. Both were so unique and delicious! The outdoor dining area is nicely surrounded by heat lamps for those cold nights in Cusco and the local brewed tea sure will warm you ...Popular withFoodiesLocalHistory

Inka Grill is a fantastic restaurant right on the Plaza de Armas that serves delicious food in a warm setting. On the night of our visit, there was even live band playing Peruvian music. The "land" stables here like the lomo saltado, aji de gallina, and cuy were all delicious. We also tried their special pisco cocktails...which were nice and ...Popular withTrendstersFoodiesBudget

Gaston Acurio's Cuzco smart casual Peruvian/International fare in Cuzco, Chi Cha serves delicious food in a cozy and beautifully decorated dining room with open kitchen. Our server was really attentive and made great recommendation on wines (this is on our second evening in high altitude, so wine was deemed ok). In addition to the rotisserie items, there were also delicious ...Popular withFoodiesLuxury

I came here for the ceviche but I'll be back for the pisco drinks!Popular withFoodiesTrendstersLocal
Known for its wine, the decor of this restaurant was really nice. My friend had the alpaca burger, and they did not like it. I had the pork belly, and it was good. I would go back here, and definately try more of their wine selection. I liked the vibe. It is the "sister restaurant" of Cicciolina.

This is a very touristy restaurant overlooking the Plaza de Armas in Cusco. They have a show at least some evenings at 8pm with folk dancing and a band that plays with traditional Peruvian instruments. They have a buffet and also offer a menu. They have cuy for 70 soles. I was not a fan of it, but my friend ...

I enjoyed my meal at Map Cafe. It was definitely upscale dining. This locations is perfect for those staying at Monasterio or La Casona as it is only steps away. The dining area is a glass enclosure situated in a colonial courtyard. Cuisine is Novo Andino and international. I recommend this location for a special lunch or dinner or romantic ...

Great little cafe with a perfect view of the Cathederal and Plaza de Armas. Attractive interior but the real draw here is the view. Can't believe most tourists are across the plaza at Starbucks.Popular withOutdoorLocalHistory

Best place for pollo a la brasa in Cusco! It's popular with locals and tourists alike. It's a short jaunt from the main, historic square and depending on the time it gets crowded. Many laud the salad bar, but I came here on a mission for some chicken. The bestselling dish is the quarter chicken with fries.

This was our tour guide's favorite restaurant in Cusco, and I found it delicious also. Very clean with excellent food. Also a great place for those who are vegetarians. This was where we ate when we first got together as a group and the large upstairs was great place to get acquainted.Popular withVegetarian

This is a fantastic restaurant! The Alpaca tenderloin was delicious and served with such a great combination of sauces. There is a rooftop dining area with a view of Cusco as well. Our server was incredibly nice and gave us a brief history of the dishes we ordered.Popular withTrendstersFoodiesNightlife
Great local empanadas restaurant. Pop in for empanadas, a variety of pastries, and fruit drinks. Good, solid, inexpensive and you will be one of the only tourists there. A full meal is less than $5-6 USD. A great place to practice your Spanish or just point at the case. Loved the saltenas.Popular withLocalFoodiesBudget
Solid food served in exceptional surroundings with impeccable service. The private opera performances here are tasteful and don't feel touristy. Worth checking ahead to try to catch one. They are relatively short, not intrusive, and add to the overall charm of the restaurant. One of the pricier options in town but worth the splurge.Popular withLuxuryLocalHistory

The mystery is still out as to why this restaurant is called Bagdad Cafe since there is no middle eastern influences to this restaurant at all. This restaurant serves up local cuisine where the highlight is Alpaca simply prepared and served with some steamed vegetables. I recommend getting a balcony table overlooking Plaza de Armas so you enjoy a view.
