MESA 24/7 recommends 10 of the best restaurants in the secret culinary world of Cusco. We recommend you book your table with time since it is the busiest season for tourists in Peru.

1.Greens Organic

Located on the second floor of a colonial building, with carved stones from the Incas, Incanto is by far the ideal place for a healthy snack after a tiring day in Cusco. The best restaurant in the Sacred Valley that offers breakfast and lunch with fresh organic ingredients from the area. Start your day with one of the freshest orange juices in town. Do not miss the abundant salads, pasta made at home and its famous trout with asparagus with its succulent alpaca medallions. A friendly, relaxed place to recharge your batteries to continue your adventures in Cusco.

2.Incanto

Formerly a Grand Palace of the Inca Tupac Yupanqui, it was converted into a restaurant whose cuisine is a mixture of Italian and Peruvian food. Located in front of Cusco’s main square, Incanto Pizzeria offers a wide variety of pizzas, breads and pastas with its large wood-fired oven. The tagliteles in squid sauce, local Cusco cheese accompanied by quinoa croquettes, make a perfect combination you will find in Incanto. We recommend the osobuco accompanied by mashed potatoes. You can accompany your dinner or lunch with the best selection of wines to make your meal unforgettable in front of an imperial square.

Tired of Andean food? How about French food for dinner? The Soleil restaurant in Cusco is one of the most elegant restaurants in the imperial city with its French dishes and its special wine list to accompany your meal. If you are celebrating a special occasion, the confit duck, rillettes and a creme brulee are waiting for you and your partner. With a subtle and romantic style of decoration, you will be dazzled by a sparkling champagne or a traditional Bordeaux wine. Our recommendation is that you taste the 7-step dish along with the duck a l’orange baked in the imperial city of Cusco but with the style of Paris.

5.Limo

This restaurant overlooks the Plaza de Armas of the imperial city of Cusco and is located on the top floor of a colonial house. The most elegant area of the place and with its great variety of Pisco.

A place of relaxation with an incredible view. And about the food? La Cocina specializes in Peruvian-Asian seafood dishes, such as fantastic dishes such as sushi (which you only try in Peru) and tiraditos (a kind of sashimi with an electrifying flavor).
