Local from Cusco, Peru

Food is supposed to be great, unfortunately the host plays games and does not have any respect for reservations or people’s time.
We made a reservation for 7pm, upon arrival we were told we had to wait between 45 and 55 minutes to be sat down-funny thing the couple in front of us with no reservation was told the same thing. 40 minutes later they sat down and we were told that we had to wait another 30 minutes for a table.
I explained to no avail why make a reservation, and why they were giving tables to people without reservations, essentially o was told we are the best restaurant and we do what we want. You can wait or you can leave.
Guess what, I left. Cusco is a great place and has other great restaurants.
Wonder how long they can stay in business with this kind of nasty attitude. As far as I am concerned no matter how good the food is, I will not be caught dead in that place. They suck !

I can't say how much I like Gastón Acurio's food and restaurants but the Chicha in Cusco absolutely blew my mind. Like it's brother in Arequipa, Chicha respects local recipes and ingredients, by preparing the dishes with the same tradition from centuries of history and by buying the produce from local farmers. The starter potato bread was the best and lightest bread I've ever had in m life. The potatoes with three sauces was amazing and I had a divine soup.
The service at Gastón's restaurants is impeccable and Chicha was no different. Waiters are super kind, quick, speak fluent English and are always glad to help and explain the dishes.
Reservations are mandatory and you can hardly get one for the same day, so make sure you reserve your table at least one day in advance.

Great restaurant by Lima chef Gaston Acurio, modern Peruvian cuisine e fusion influences, expensive by Peru standards but similar in price to any moderate fine dining place in NYC or LA. Generous portions.

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 trucha (trout from the lakes), and traditional staples like aji de gallina and lomo saltado. Our favorite that evening, octopus cerviche, but the bread and sauce were the most memorable.

The restaurant is just a block off of the plaza de armas so it is very convenient to get to...although it is located upstairs and climbing stairs in Cuzco could be quite a feat. We really had an enjoyable time dining at Chi Cha.
