Menu at View House, Cusco

In the San Blas neighborhood of Cusco, there are several restaurants that have balcony seating with expansive views over the historical center of the city and the entire valley. View House is a casual bar with a pool table and great sound system and comfortable, retro sofas in its rooftop, open-air lounge area (photo of the lounge below, too). Here’s the menu at View House, Cusco:

Have you had a chilcano? I knew all about pisco sours but I’d never heard of the chilcano until I landed in Cusco. They’re pisco, lemon, ginger ale and bitters. Refreshing. You’ll see (and drink them) all over Cusco. The View House does a range of specialty house cocktails, like the Humantay (which tries to capture the blue-green of Humantay Lake), as well as Peruvian cocktail mainstays, fresh juices, and a Happy Hour deal.

I had the tequeños (deep fried tortilla tubes with gooey Cusco cheese inside, along with a pile of guacamole. That was 15 soles, which is around $3.75 USD. The food menu is a mix of Peruvian and American pub classics. 

Like many restaurants in Cusco, View House a Menu del Día, a combo menu that’s usually very reasonably priced and includes an appetizer, drink, and entrée. On the menu there it’s showing the three entrée / fondo options, the pork chop (chuleta de cerdo) with salad and fries, the chicken breast (pollo a la plancha) with salad and fries, and the lomo saltado, which is a popular Peruvian dish that’s a beef or pork stir0fry with vegetables and French fries mixed in, alongside rice (for those days when you need rice with your fries).
