This is a great Peruvian restaurant two blocks west of the Plaza Uruguaya that has delicious Lomo Saltado and other typical dishes of Peru. It has a very friendly and unique decorated atmosphere common in the United States but not so much to restaurants in Asuncion. Prices are very reasonable, the service very quick and well prepared, and its a... More

I must say writing this down makes me sad, but I feel the obligation to let you know about it. Dear reader, this was once a great peruvian food restaurant. The best in the city. But the soiled and dirty space made a visit to La Flor de la Canela unthinkable. Years later (live in Asuncion) we thought the problem... More

We had a shrimp cocktail, a white fish and a beef dish here. Forgot the exact names, cause everything was in Spanish. The choice is huge, but our three picks were awful. Salty and untasty. Not worth the money. Cost was around 15$ per person.

The food is excellent and oversized. It is ideal for food sharing. The ubication implies some concern about security but it is face to face with San Roque, an historic restaurant

This is a reasonable place in the centric section of town. Not right next to the park, as erroneously pointed by another customer. It looks like this place has recently taken over another space. You enter from the corner building now. Lots of seating, in at least three distinct areas. I came at the end of lunch, and was the... More

This is a cheap place where you can get typical peruvian food, and also INKA COLA :) The atmosphere is ok, the place is clean and the seafood is good, you actually feel like in a chifa restaurant in Perú. Highly recomended for the budget traveler...

Very cheap but poorly cooked food that is difficult to loacte combinations other than the cheapest of ingredients. Prawn cocktail is a one prawn dish ! Crumbling unappealing decor. Asuncion can offer so much better. Oh, situated just on the main commercial sex workers area Plza Uraguay!!
