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.

A delightful and busy place

We were walking around the block from our hotel and noticed this interesting restaurant with a few people sitting outside. After walking around and back within 10 minutes the place was nearly full. Even without a reservation they managed to squeeze us in. We were very pleased they did. The food was... read more

Several years ago this place used to home one of the best restaurants in Lima, with a good bar, well decorated although small dinner area and the best Lenguado al Garlin which still is remembered in Lima. So, when you see today the simply decorated Saqra the first impression was of a sandwich place. No bar to enjoy, very simple... More

Our friends stumbled across this restaurant near our hotel. We ended up eating here for the 2 nights we spent in Peru. It's very colorful and charming. Our hotel provided a card for free pisco sours. It's a great drink, similar to a whiskey sour. I do not recall the name of what I ordered but it's a pork dish... More

Saqra was reccomended to us by a local tour guide and rightly so. It's a beautiful venue with unforgettably delicious Peruvian food. The lovely young Eduardo was a big part of our positive dining experience also. We had the grilled octopus, 2 types of steaks (can't remember the names) and the most exquisite deserts!! Sad it was a quick stop... More

We were spending one night in Peru as we concluded our trip to Machu PIcchu. Saqra was within walking distance of our hotel, Casa Andina Select, and we had walked by the restaurant earlier in the day and thought the menu looked interesting.

We stayed around the corner at Hostal el Patio (which is great) and had a really lovely dinner here. I recommend the banana creme brûlée! Great service from the waitstaff who speak Spanish and English. Make sure you check out both bathrooms, as weird as that sounds!

The initial whiff of disinfectant in the air and funky decor instantly lowered my expectations for the evening. However, the air eventually cleared and the decor made some sense after being explained to us by the friendly staff (this is a socially responsible restaurant- normally a description that sinks my hopes for an above par repast). We then went on... More

Our first night in Lima brought us to this restaurant. We ate on the patio, which was very nice. It is located in a fun area with several bars and restaurants and shops, so we enjoyed walking around a bit before our dinner reservation. The service was fast and efficient, and the food was very good. Highly recommend this restaurant!
