Fantastico! Do not miss!!!

Situated in the most important museum in Lima, it is a wonderful spot for lunch. Either inside, in a very refined room with decorated sculptures or outside under a voluptuous porch in a garden full of magnificent flowers, will work well. We had 4 wonderful entrees (escalope on the grill, ceviche... read more

We went for a drink after visiting the museum. The place is great and right around the corner, you can find the "sex" area of the museum. Worth a visit. The pisco however had a bit too much alcohol.

Easily the best food we've had in Lima so far. Everything was flavour and delicious. Good service and an atmosphere that can't be beat.

A varied menu of Peruvian classics, the lomo saltado with tacu tacu was particularly good. Service was very slow during a busy period but apart from that our visit was great.

Unusual that a restaurant of a museum is worth a visit. This one is mentioned as an exception and it was. You can choose just entrees as they are large enough. During the lunch time heavy eating is not my style. Service is friendly. Our young waiter Renzo was trying his best. Like in Peru elsewhere it is however impossible... More

I had heard such glowing reviews, I had higher hopes for this restaurant. There were several things on the menu that were not available, the service was a bit curt and inattentive; we felt they were understaffed. The food was good but not excellent. The best aspect of the restaurant is the setting. It's in the garden of the museum... More
