Best Restaurants in Cusco

The local diet in Cusco has been based on corn, potatoes, rice and indigenous animals for hundreds of years. This is still the case today and restaurants and street vendors reflect these culinary traditions as well as embracing more international influences. Typical dishes you can try on your trip to Cusco include; Cuy Chactado (fried guinea pig), Lomo Saltado (stir fried beef) and Anticuchos (Skewers of marinated, grilled meat- usually beef heart).

There are hundreds of restaurants in Cusco and after trying most of them out we came up with our 2017 list of the best restaurants in Cusco including Peruvian fusion, traditional ‘cusqueña’ fare, mediterranean and japanese cuisine. Bon appetit!
