Fodor's Review

The oldest continuously running restaurant in Cusco, Paititi's newest owners have presented a concept that makes the most out of the historical setting of this small but beautiful locale. Surrounded by original Inca walls and colonial accents, the presentation of your food fits in perfectly. Appetizers come to your table in stone mortar-like bowls while mains arrive on plates reminescent of Cusqueño-school paintings. It's not all about the presentation, however. Paititi is the perfect place to experience the best traditional flavors of the region such as anticuchos (grilled beef heart), home-style soups, lomo saltado, aji de gallina and, of course, cuy. A special treat is the pachamanca, made of pork, chicken, alpaca, potatoes, and native vegetables slow cooked in a clay pot in the ground. Even the pizzas have been given a Cusqueño twist.
