I love this place. The food was gorgeous. It was really difficult to choose from the menu... Everything I have tasted there has been delicious. Well done, Rafael!

This is a great restaurant the place itself is amazing I think its only open for lunch but the food is incredible. They specialize in traditional peruvian dishes I tried one of the tacu tacus and I remember thinking this is the best tacu tacu ive ever had. I can only recommend this place.

Tender enough to cut with your fork, creamy and charcoal flavor, this exotic tasteful dish is superb, not taking anything away from their ceviche's that are all amazing. Very busy place at lunch and they close early, but the wait is totally worth it

This is my favorite for lunch time restaurant and I go as often as I can! Make a reservation or arrive early but it is worth it. Try sharing dishes so you can experience more things ... Be warned the cocktails are good and strong!

We seat at the bar (where there are always seats available),the Best... More

You are in Lima! Is difficult to pick where to go since you are in one of the best cities to eat. Try as much places as you can.
