It was the first restaurant that I visited after my arrival to Lima, and it was a very good choice. The food is delicious and is perfect to have a first approach to Peruvian food.

Personally I'm not a big fish eater so we decided to go to Panchita instead. Very good food. Nice "lomo" and nice side dishes too. Friendly waiters. Overall a very good impression of this restaurant.

Panchita is a great restaurant to visit when you are looking to sample the flavors of Peru. The menu is very extensive and also comes in English of you have trouble translating. The cocktail menu is also very extensive and has a number of twists to the pisco sour which are worth trying. The portions offered are very very large... More

Been here a couple of times and it is always great! This time we ordered dessert, Crema Volteada (similar to a flan) and it was outstanding.
