1. The Rabona

Resturant the Rabona

Located in the narrow Herrajes street, La Rabona offers the best sandwiches and the best chocolate cake in Cusco. Based on pure organic products, their paninis are an absolute delight first thing in the morning. We recommend the Capresse and Hummus panini, the latter with avocado, cherry tomatoes and seed sprouts. The best thing is that at very good prices the portions are quite large, to the point that a single sandwich can easily satisfy two people.

With unparalleled attention, here you start your day enjoying from the first bite. You can sit in their comfortable armchairs on the first or second floor, or enjoy the view of the Plaza de Armas and Plaza Regocijo from their balcony.

With a relaxed atmosphere and a fresh and bright decoration, Nuna Raymi is typical Peruvian food with a creative and innovative touch. Their alpaca anticuchos make your mouth water just thinking about them, an unmissable flavor that you can only try in this restaurant in Cusco. They also do demonstrations of their drinks, making delicious pisco sours of different flavors such as passion fruit, aguaymanto and chicha. At the end of your meal, the sommelier passes by with an emolientero cart (cover photo) handing out herbal teas with properties of lemon verbena, yacón, penca de sávila, llantén, among others.

7. Green Point

Restaurant Green Point

If you think that by being vegan you are sacrificing flavor, Green Point is evidence that this thought is far from reality. With typical dishes transformed into vegans, such as causas, ceviches and sushis, Green Point stands as the best and most varied option free of any animal product in Cusco. The Causa is a true gastronomic and vegan miracle: made of Andean potatoes, stuffed with mixed vegetables in avocado mayonnaise. It is accompanied by grilled oyster mushrooms in anticuchera sauce with aji panca chili, and on the side a delicious passion fruit sauce that adds exoticism and creativity to the flavor. The restaurant also holds famous cooking classes that seek to expand the knowledge of the vegan and raw diet.

The oldest restaurant on this list. Karl-Heinz is a German farmer who arrived in Cusco 20 years ago, set up his dairy farm and wanted to make his products known in a restaurant. Together with his wife, they created the Heidi Farm, in honor of one of Karl's mules. Under the cooking direction of his wife, Granja Heidi works with the most excellent natural products, achieving a perfect blend of French German food with Peruvian touches and ingredients. You can order vegetarian dishes as well as meat dishes, such as the delicious seco de cordero, perhaps the best cut of meat of all the restaurants in Cusco. At the end of your lunch or dinner, you can order the Mate de la felicidad, a secret formula of 7 herbs that gladdens the heart and soul.

9. The Marshal Barra Cevichera

The Mariscal Barra Cevichera Local

Outside the historic center is the best ceviche in Cusco. El Mariscal's charm is that their fish travels from Lima so that you can eat it the same day. Therein lies the secret of the exquisite taste of its ceviche, which transports you from the first bite to the Peruvian beaches. With a very friendly and well-lit restaurant, you can watch the bar right at the entrance so you can see the preparation of your dish. Not only the ceviche is good, the grilled octopus is the star of this place.

With hundreds of varieties of Peruvian piscos, here you can have a fun pisco sour class behind the bar, plus a tasting of different types of piscos while listening to explanations about their origin and characteristics. As for the food, we recommend their lamb tapas, as well as the very fresh Muchame, an herb chimichurri with olive oil on slices of avocado and duck prosciutto. As a starter you have to try the avocado al Carbon, with a surprising presentation and flavor.
