Hard to criticize. Good food, good service.

A little more expensive than some (but a lot less than comparable American restaurants), but the quality and range of the food is excellent. The roast meats and fish are really good.

Perfect if you want to be introduced vast Peruvian cuisine, although its target seems to be the foreign visitors more than locals.

Went here as a family of four! As a pescatarian, I had the swordfish (that had been on the grill) with potatoes and corn - absolutely incredible! For dessert I had a creme-caramel type mouse, also amazing. The staff were fast and happy to help, and I'd even say this was the best place I ate in the whole of... More

Food was ok, nothing spectacular, service was fast and right on time. A lot of choices regarding food and drinks. A bit pricey though.

Excellent choice for a good meat restaurant in Lima, don't forget to try the chilcano with ginger, and a good pisco after dessert.

ABSOLUTELY LOVELY!! Although Lima is known for it's amazing seafood, we decided to try one of Gaston's restaurants (the famous chef of Peru) that was more focused on Criolla food of Peru. We live in Cusco, so we were familiar with many of the traditional dishes that Panchita featured on the menu. This also meant we would be able to... More

I chose this restaurant specifically because it was reviewed as the best place for cuy in Lima. Sadly they didn't have any the day we went, as they had run out. I tried to go again the week after, again for cuy, but checked first this time, and they had run out again (or maybe still?). The restaurant is very... More
