Tasty and delicious food with emphasis on Peruvian dishes. Service could be a little quicker, but the food makes up for any delays.

Good food and service. It is inside the Casa Andina Private Collection Hotel. A nice place for a quiet dinner or lunch, would recommend a lot their chicken consume.

I stayed at the Casa Andina Private Collection and that is where Alma is located. It was a lovely and delicious meal with excellent Pisco Sours, wine and service. I had a traditional dish: Aji ala Gallina and was very pleased with it. All and all a great experience.

Fine dining at low prices, we really enjoyed our meal here. Very attentive service and the food was amazing. Highly recommend the Alpaca and the dessert selection. Lovely palatial setting with a gorgeous courtyard. Highly recommend.

The food was nuevo andino, extremely tasty and well prepared. The rooms are well appointed and quiet -- perfect for conversing.The chimichurri was the best I've ever tasted. Yum! Don't pass the one up if you're looking for a great meal.

Alma Cocina Vina is the hotel restaurant of Casa Andina Private Collection. While the restaurant isn't something to go out of your way for in a city filled with excellent restaurants, if you're staying at the Casa Andina, take one night out and give Alma a shot. We had pretty low expectations after receiving our very poor room at Casa... More

The Alma restaurant is excellent! It has a wonderful athmosphere, a very attentive service and wonderful dishes! The highlights were a plate of tenderly cooked filet mignon with potato and garlic mash and a pork belly cooked for 36 hours served with leek puree. I rarely had such an excellent pork. For Europeans the prices are cheap: we had a... More
