The sweet lady at the front sat us at our table and we weren't sure what to expect, she warned us it takes about an hour to freshly prepare a roasted guinea pig wait but it was well worth the wait. The presentation was excellent and the flavor to follow was like no other. Definately a delicious,fun and friendly experience.... More

We ate here for our last dinner in Peru and it was great! A wonderful decor and ambiance to celebrate the conclusion of our trip. The butter is INCREDIBLE and the tamales are a must get.

After reading amazing reviews about this place, i was thoroughly disappointed. The cuy (guinea pig) was served warm rather than hot. Not sure if the restaurant is to blame, but it wasn't very good. The Pisco sour was also disappointing. Still hungry after the main course, we decided to order a salad, which turned out to be even more disappointing... More

You should also try the refreshing special... More

Awesome presentation for the cuy. The food was good. If you want the roasted cuy it takes an hour so be prepared to wait.

This is high quality food at a price you can afford becuase of Peruvian currency. Normal dishes like the quinoa soup were really a step up and DELICIOUS. We had alpaca, lamb, chicken,... More

We tried the alpaca, stuffed peppers and vegetable soup and the food, service and atmosphere were all delightful. Highly recommend going here to try some local food. We didn't try the guinea pig, but it looked good!
