Refugio was incredible. The wait staff treats you like royalty and the food adds to it. The food and cocktails are fabulous, and they had plenty of vegetarian options. The presentation of the food and cocktails was exquisite. Get the pisco sour ahumado and they will smoke your drink right in front of you! Also, the restaurant has a gorgeous view of the city and a cozy lounge area where you can sip fresh tea from the included tea bar. It was one of the best restaurants we’ve been to in a while!

What a hidden gem. To walk through the Incan tunnel to this charming skybox and dine overlooking the city is a priceless experience.

Maravilloso servicio y cocina en un hotel boutique. El ambiente excelente y los platos de lo más elaborado con una excelente relación calidad precio. Además adaptaron los platos a mi intolerancia. El jefe de cocina salió a saludarnos al preguntar por el excelente trabajo que hace

El restaurante y hotel boutique, están en Barrio San Blas, muy pintoresco. Se accede al hotel por un hermoso pasillo de arco en piedra, adentro un pacífico jardín con fuente de agua.
La decoración es minimalista, las vistas son espectaculares! Mucha paz y relax.
Los platos presentados magníficamente, pero tuvimos un problema con la entrada de pulpo, estaba mal cocido y un poco duro.
El mozo equivocó el pedido de los platos de fondo y en vez de traer el lomo de alpaca de mi marido, le trajo mi pedido, corvina y a mi me trajo otro sobre el cual, solo le había consultado si era con quinua. Por supuesto ambos platos estaban exquisitos, pero no fue lo ordenado.
Luego cambió el turno de nuestro mozo y fuimos atendidos por Josef Manuel, quien fue súper amable y nos atendió excelentemente. Nos dieron un postre de cortesía por el error.
Riquísimo el pisco sour ahumado. El ambiente súper agradable.

Food was good but not great. The first courses were better than the main courses. We were the only ones there other than a large group that came in right after us. This impacted the quality of service that we got for the night significantly. It was otherwise a lovely restaurant and a nice experience.

El restaurante está escondido. Es incluso difícil encontrarlo. Pero es un oasis de elegancia y buen gusto en medio del agitado barrio de San Blas. La comida es deliciosa y el ambiente espectacular. Lo mejor que probé de Cusco en mis siete días de estadía.

Fantastic hidden gem! Their reservations only policy and the ambience they try to create after dinner as you relax in the living room overlooking Cusco is spectacular!
