Central Cusco Restaurants

After living several years in Cusco, I have a short list my favorite restaurants in the center. You can see a more complete list of Cusco restaurants on my website.

Two restaurants that I haven’t reviewed yet, but which deserve to be mentioned are Limo and Morena (on the Plaza de Armas). I recommend making reservations for both.

Cusco has so many restaurants it’s impossible to list them all here. See my website for a more complete list of places I eat often.
