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.
