A great place to meat

Get the meat. The rest is good too. Salad bar is worth the cost, but so is the meat sampler. Great drinks, greater meat. Meat.

Decided to splurge on our last night in Lima, and we certainly picked the right place to do it. Started with their bread, served with the best chimichuri I've ever tasted, as well as an aji sauce and butter. For an entrée, I ordered half a chicken with yucca fries and sautéed vegetables. The chicken was cooked perfectly, juicy interior... More

Another of Gaston Acurio's many restaurants. Serves typical Peruvian fare with a flair. The Stuffed Ricotta Peppers are spicy and delicious. Great service and an appealing decor.

Panchita offers traditional Peruvian fare specialising in grilled meats. Hip decor and a cozy waiting area with a bar. Enjoyed the Causa Limeña and their famous TacuTacus. Had to order the Suspiro Limeño as dessert -- I'm still sighing with delight.

Ambiance, service, Peruvian anticuchos, all good. we ordered pork chops and sword fish. Tried my first and last Pisco Sour....bleh. Nice wines by the glass. A good place for adult dining experience. Mostly upper-middle-class-looking Peruvians dining around us.

Loved this place, 6 of us went and there was something for everyone. Service was very good, prices reasonable and nice ambiance. Had the tamales, and husband had the Lomo Saltado, both were very good. Loved the bread as well

Fantastic spot for anticuchos. Vibrant and delicious dishes. Simple but fitting drinks list. Service was attentive and friendly. Only falls short on the decor which is a tad kitsch. Great restaurant for anticuchos that I would highly recommend.

The food was delicious, I ordered the grilled octopus and it was a very generous portion. Don't ask for 1 portion bread each, sharing should be more than enough.

I only ate anticuchos, but they were great. It's a very popular restaurant, always crowded, so you'll probably have to wait before getting a table.
