Loved Panchita!

I was adventurous and tried the grilled beef heart, as our waiter stated this was one of their specialties. It was amazing, cooked to medium perfectly, and tasted like a lean cut of beef! The sauces that accompanied it were fantastic as well. One of the best places we've eaten on our trip.

Dined here recently with friends and selected 'Panchita ', on the basis of recommendations of our hotel manager. We went in search of quay, more commonly known as guinea pigs. Panchita had run out of them, so instead we selected a range of equally sublime dishes, including potato and maize based local delicacies and superbly cooked seafoods. Panchita also offers... More

I love Peruvian food and this a great place to eat gourmet peruvian food. The dishes are big, so be careful with what you order, because you may end up close to explode (even the appetizers). Since i wanted to try a little bit of all, we ordered 3 appetizers to share which had a little bit of some typical... More

Panchita is one of the greatest restaurants in Peru, from the service to the food everything is great. I love the fact that all the waiters are male since they are very friendly and fast. They always offer something you might need and are happy to help. Every time I go I order their famous and delicious bread. The price... More

Panchita is a restaurant with a nice environment, the food is excellent, we had the anticucho which was superb, the arroz con pato, the lomo saltado and the tacu taco, each dish was better tan the one before!!! The desserts were really good as well, my favorite the one with chirimoya (merengado de chirimoya). Service is a little slow and... More

A fun restaurant with a lively atmosphere. I finally got to try Cui on my last night in Peru and it was quite different and the Pisco Sours here were delicious, the service was excellent. A varied menu, I would say a good place to go if you have a large group and want to really enjoy. Don't get me... More

Panchita was another recommendation from our friend and also endorsed by the JW Lima. We were trying to get into Central but they were booked for the night so we ended up at Panchita and weren't disappointed. Both the food and service were on point and we had an excellent night. The atmosphere was fun, it had a Brazilian steakhouse... More

Anticuchos... order them. You will not regret it. We went on a Thursday night.There was a bit of a wait, but the bar had an amazing menu with lots of different Pisco concoctions. We rolled out. The portions were generous and the bread was incredible. We had two apps. Pastel de Choclo and Papa Rellena... very classical Peruvian entrees. I... More

Went to Panchita with some colleagues. Great food. We enjoyed some loin. I recommend to eat it medium rare. Try some of their micro brew beers, such as the Barbarian Indian Pale Ale.
