I went again to this very good restaurant, its my favorite in Lima, because I am from north of Peru and live on Florida USA, so every time that I am going back to Peru and Lima, I had the "obligation" to go there and taste what is the best of north of Peru's food. The "pato acuyado" meaning duck... More

After researching restaurants for my trip to Peru this was one of my finalists. I arrived for lunch without a reservation and they gave me a table without any problem. The cashier speaks some English. They even printed out English version of their menu for me. I ordered the Cabrito without bone. I got two pieces one with bone and... More

Went here after touring the Huaca site. All the outside seating was occupied so we dined inside. We had a fantastic well presented delicious meal at an affordable price. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Go.

Wonderful place, very unassuming tuck in the Jesus maria neighborhood. The food is delicious, love that is traditional northern Peruvian style and not your small bites. Pricing is just right, great service! Will come back !

It was the best dining experience we all had in Peru! We were careful about what we ate for two and a half weeks just so we would be sure... More

Incredible menu, great food, authentic and original dishes. The tuna carpaccio in garlic and olive oil with avocado and tomato was delicious as well as the lenguado with cebolla aceivichado and olive oil. The two brothers who are the owners/chefs can match drinks and wine perfectly with the dishes. They were very kind and spent several minutes talking with us... More

The smoked tuna in garlic, olive oil with tomatoes and avocado will definitely be ordered again in the future. The lenguado in olive oil with aceivichado onions was also outstanding. The... More

Oh my god! Their food was just super great. It was about 15 minutes by taxi from hotel in Miraflores. And price is higher than Peruvian standard. But it was more than worth it. Ceviche is their specialty and yes, definitely great. We ordered 2 different ceviches. baked prawn, mixed fried seafood. Everything was crazy great. Server was young but... More

Perfect restaurant to try many of the great peruvian specialities. The theme of the restaurant is north peruvian. Great service! The dinner started with a leche the tigre on the house. :)
