This is a restaurant amidst pyramid ruins. The food was amazing and so were the drinks. The restaurant is open, like a tent covering, so you can look at the ruins and walk through them, after you are done eating, or before. The pyramid and the ruins are nicely lit up, so you can see the detail of the stones... More

For only 12 soles, we received a guided 2-hour tour in English, as well as access to the small museum. Lots of history here, well worth the low price of admission.

We took a taxi back from the Centro to Huaca Pucllana and just bought a ticket for the guided tour. If you can check in advance what times the tours are going, you can avoid a wait (we had just missed a tour and had to wait about 25 mins). The site itself is very interesting and we really enjoyed... More

We decided to visit this place as we stayed in the hostel close to the museum. We had English tour guide. There is not English description for the exhibited items in the museum. I would not recommend visiting this place without the guide. It was really interesting place with a full of history, one of the best place to visit... More

A pre-Inca cultural and religious center. Reconstruction is interesting and not too aggressive or misleading. The English tour is reasonable but the museum has NO English explnations of the exhibited items.

Went with family to this much talked about restaurant in Lima. Though we booked very last minute since it was a Sunday night we got an outside table facing the ruins. Great ambience, food and service. A good experience overall.

We had a guided tour of the place and our guide was very interesting. She told us all about the history and excavations, and took us all over the site. I must say that it would not have been so interesting to have walked the site without a guide. Bring a hat! It was very hot when we went, and... More

We booked the same day for dinner and were not able to sit outside to get the full amazing view of the illuminated ruins. Dining room was very nice with ruins visible to the side, service and food were fine. A little pricey, but what do you expect when dining in such a special place?
