Cuzco has an unusual variety and quantity of restaurants. Trying to find the one that you like can be either fun or intimidating. Our search engine will help you find one. It is on the sidebar.
Restaurants abound in Cuzco’s colonial core. Hardly a street exists without them. There are hundreds of them with a wide diversity of options for travelers and locals, from elegant establishments to what in Peruvian parlance are called guariques, or in English holes-in-the wall. Since we began Cuzco Eats a year and a half ago we have written about Cuzco’s restaurants, among other things, in both reviews and notes. We bring them all together here in a list with links.
Our list is noticeably different than the lists of most other sites. We do not only review tourist restaurants, or even tourist restaurants of a certain class (fine dining or back packer dining,) rather we also include restaurants that are part of he life of Cuzco.
Since our team is composed of both a North American and people from Cuzco we like to explore the city and its offerings, not simply the tourist havens. We expect that many travelers are of a similar mind.
