It was my second visit to Lima, Peru and decided it's time to try traditional Peruvian food except the famous and truly remarkable cuisine, namely ceviche. My mate took me to this restaurant mentioning it's one of the fanciest local restaurant started by the legendary Gaston Acurio. He was quite correct, the food was great. The orange and mango mixed...

If your visit to Lima is confined mainly to MiraFlores and you don't have the time or courage to venture into the neighborhoods with incredible street food, this is your place. In one sitting, using bilingual waiters, you can sample the best of Peru's street food including, of course, cuy or guinea pig....

Every restaurant makes their own sauces and my husband so loved their hot sauce that he wanted them to bottle it for him (they didn't have the ability) but were happy to send us away with a container of it.

Craig and i loved this place. The interior decorating was so amazing, we got friendly service from the waitstaff, the bread here is delicious but sure to leave room for the mains which are HUGE! We sahred a lechon which was a roasted baby pig. great value for money for amazing Peruvian food.

I have eaten in my fair share of restaurants and also went to one of the two top20 world restaurants localted in Lima. I would say that Panchita was unexpectedly soooo much better that A&G and definitely the best restaurant we ate in our 4weeks honeymoon in Latin America. The ambience is rather modern/"US like" but the food is just... More

This is where the fiances wanted to have lunch. Very busy place, but still a reasonable attention and excellent food. There was a slight mistake in the order, which was rectified hastily. Definitely a place to go and, to come back again.
