Nice place :) - Edit

Nice place, also a shop that's selling many interesting things. I would argue that french fries are NOT 'shamanic food'. But there is a lot of nice stuff as well :)

Pros: Nice shop

Cons: Small place with shared tables

Delicious Food, nice establishment - Edit

We ate there with a group of 4 people and ordered the Papa Huancaina to share as starter, a vegetable dish and different pastas. The only con woult be that the starter arrived after the first main dishes. But firstly they brought bread with different sauces, which was nice and they had spices on the table. Additionally we loved the decoration of the restaurant. All in all the staff was kind (even asked for allergys), the food was good and reasonably priced.

Pros: frienly staff, good food, cool decorations

Cons: Starter arrived with the main dishes

Good place for food as well as meeting other people - Edit

Nice vegan place in the center of Cuzco just off a main street. Nice raw food. Also has warm options in case the nights get a bit too cold and you need something warm. Great Maca power juice. Love to hang around the large central table and meet anyone from locals to people that just arrived from the airport.

Pros: Lots of choice, Great juices, Nice place to meet people

Cons: Sometimes noisy when it's busy, When busy you may need to wait for your order

Happy vibes, healthy menu - Edit

Have you ever wanted to eat at a table set with a centerpiece of giant crystals for high-vibration dining? Shaman Restaurant is your place.

The menu offers an interesting mix of home-style regional and international foods, with a focus on healthy ingredients. There are fresh juices and desserts, too.

Service is warm and friendly, and some English is spoken.

Menu Del Dia - Edit

An all round fantastic menu. I went back for their Menu of the Day (Menu Del Dia) multiple times during my 2 week stay in Cusco. It's only 14 soles, and everything is well portioned and consistently delicious.

My favourite dishes off the menu include the vegan omelette and the chocolate waffles. I also really recommend testing out their brown rice dessert.

Pros: Fully vegan, Waffles from heaven , Cheap lunch menu

My First 5 Star Rating! - Edit

Wow. Just wow you guys. I was so overwhelmed by the amount of options that were on the menu. I ended up ordering the Alfredo because its been so long since I've had white sauce, and it used to be my favorite. It was amazing! I would be willing to bet good money that a non-vegan wouldn't be able to identify it as not containing dairy. SO creamy and delicious! Prices aren't 'cheap', but very reasonable for the quality and amount of food you get. Atmosphere was great as well, beautiful decorations and friendly staff! EAT HERE!

Pros: Many Options, Beautiful Atompshere, Yummy Food

Cons: I don't have much time to go back!! :'(

I am excitedly returning to Peru next week and even more excited to return to eat at Shaman. I am sure it is going to be equally as amazing as it was last year. I will come back and edit this upon my return.

Stay tuned for updates!

Healthy Food/ Big Portions! - Edit

We ate here twice while in Cusco! Amazing (huge) dishes, prepared with great care. We loved the quinoa soup! Consider splitting salads, as they are enormous! Loved the "wall of wisdom"!

Pros: large menu

Cons: can be hard to find (it's in a small side street)

great deal for 20soles - Edit

i ate here twice at night while in cusco. The food was amazing value with large amount of lovely healthy food made & displayed with love. There are also lots of variety to choose from on the menu. However there was something missing which i cant really put my finger on, i dont know if it was the music or the lighting but there was something with the atmosphere. The communal table was good for eating, meeting & chatting to others but i did not like how the coca powders & other powder stuff was abit pushed on you to buy by a staff member & how there spiritual beliefs were pushed too. Maybe it was just me at the time but i felt it was abit much on my first visit so on my second visit i did not engage in conversion as much. Overall it is one of the best restaurants for vegan food in cusco & the staff mean well so definitely give it a go & see what you think.

Pros: great menu, spiritual, good service

Cons: too pushy on selling powder products, too deep on preaching spiritual beliefs, no cheap menu of the day at lunchtime

Discovering this place was amazing, I felt at home and could enjoy the way they prepare the meals. The salad bar was diverse up to 10 options which is very good for the Peruvian standard. It was expensive considering the quantity of food and I was very satisfied with everything. Thanks a lot for being there and sure will return there one day.

Pros: Nice Music, Great art with philosophy, Good raw options

Cons: A little inside, but not great deal, Still small, but bigger than many others

huge menu! - Edit

Huge extensive menu! so much to choose from! They have a board filled with animal rights and vegan pictures which is awesome. The bathrooms were decorated as well, with spiritual and beautiful pictures.

They have free roasted corn on the table to snack on while waiting. As for dinner, I went with the healthy option of getting a huge salad (as it felt like I wasn't eating enough vegetables on my trip!) It was very yummy..avocado, beets, greens etc

My friend got the quinoa soup and I had wished I had gotten it, but she was so full so she did let me finish it. We had a lot of quinoa soup on our trip but this was definitely the best one!! sooo good! (It also came with bread which was very tasty). She also got an order of french fries which the way they came out..was very cute. They were tasty.

The workers were all very friendly and nice. A customer was actually teaching them English while we were eating and that was really sweet to watch/listen to.

I'd highly recommend this place!

Fantastic Find! - Edit

The menu is very extensive, even includes raw options, and reasonably priced for the touristy Cusco area. I had the quinoa vegetable soup, which was delicious and a much larger serving than I expected (12 soles). That was enough for a meal, but I had already ordered some potatoes in Andean sauce (10 soles), which were also pretty tasty. The atmosphere was quaint, and the service very friendly. I will definitely go back again before I leave the area.
