Description: Saqra, from the Quechua language meaning “little devil”, “naughty” or “mischief maker”. Saqra also refers to one of the characters found in the festival of the Madonna of Carmen in the village of Paucartambo, Cusco. Here, this happy little devil wins the heart of the Madonna with his childish pranks and mischief making as he dances around her playfully in the procession. These ideas inspired the creation of Saqra as a restaurant bar that offers modern Peruvian food where we reinterpret the Peruvian identity in a playful and contemporary key, conjuring up fun and colourful results. Saqra, in essence, is not really a place but a state of mind where this little devil plays a delightful host who wants that all his guests live a unique experience, where they meet again with their the inner child, sometimes long lost.

Expect a warm welcome at this gem! While staying in Lima for a few short days, we ate here twice, the waitstaff and food was so good. Their pisco sours are fabulous, and every dish is complete in all ways– texture, flavor combinations and of course, presentation. We shared amazing Andean Ratatouille Pansotti, Portobello Anticuchos and peruvian corn pepián, the... More

We had a lovely experience sitting on the patio of Saqra last night. Our waiter, Edourdo was attentive and efficient in serving our party of ten. He willingly provided separate checks for the delicious multi - course meal he served us. The patio was festive. I'd recommend Saqra while visiting the the Miraflores District of Lima.

Located in a small alley, this restaurant had a lot of charm. We have started our dinner with tasty, house Pisco drinks, recommended by the manager. They offer several pisco flavor drinks you can choose form. We don't remember the name of the dishes but I had a delicious chicken and my fiancé had beef. At the end we ordered... More

Had a great meal, we ordered the cerviche to start and the Panko shrimps both were so tasty and the portions were very healthy. For our main course I had the mushroom risotto, loved it! My husband had the grilled octopus on rice again it didn't disappoint. Throughout dinner we had great service and the whole staff was very attentive.... More

Great place in the Miraflores section of Lima. Kitschy but cozy décor with fabulous food presented with an artistic flourish. The creamy asparagus soup is gently poured over an island of cream surrounded by diced smoked trout…heavenly! Ate here more than once during our short stay in Lima, staff is friendly and helpful, enhancing the entire dining experience.

We have been traveling in Peru for 5 weeks, and we had some problems finding really good food in Miraflores. After talking to a local guide we were recommended going to Saqra restaurant. The restaurant was not to hard to find. This is without a doubt the best steak we eat in our hole stay! We tried the Huancaína gnocchi... More

I really wanted to try contemporary Peruvian fusion cuisine, but the prices at a lot of the trendy restaurants were hard to justify on a travellers budget. Saqra has all the creativity of a lot of the more pricy places, but in a much more casual setting. I loved it - it was super funky and arty, not at all... More

We try to go last night without success as it was packed, we try again tonight, we went early and we found seats. Very nice place, interesting menu, good service and positive overall experience. Not cheap but affordable.

This was a great find! The drinks, the gnocchi, and the fried pineapple/doughnut dessert were excellent. Wonderful services from Valdimir. Check it out if you're in the area :)
