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.

I'm peruvian and from the bottom of my heart I must say that this has been the best dinner that I've had un a long time. This was an outstanding experience. I didn't know that these dishes could get any better but this restaurant actually did it. Congratulation!!!

We had a fun night, good food, great service and a menu with some excellent descriptions I made one huge mistake in agreeing to share a pasta starter as I would have happily eat it all. The good news was that it left room for a desert which was excellent The beef was cooked to perfection and the owner could... More

With so many choices in Miraflores, we decided on Saqra. We were not let down! Food and service were both top notch. Each dish we ordered was incredible in every aspect.

We arrived a little late on a Saturday night in Lima and I wanted to experience Saqra because of trip advisor reviews. When we arrived they were closing and before walking away I mentioned that we had just arrived from Chicago to eat there and that we will order immediately the waiter talked to the manager and they agreed to...

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at the Casa Andina hotel. He also gave us a card that gave us a first round of drinks for free. This was an excellent suggestion. The restaurant is small and welcoming with a wonderful, understated atmosphere. Every dish we ordered was excellent. The Pisca Sours were awesome. Four of us had two... More

We ate here on our last night in Lima and I'm so glad we did. It was great value for money with similar prices to the other places we had tried, but the quality of the food and presentation was streets ahead of the other restaurants we had been to. I had the Ceviche as a first course. Not a... More

This restaurant was recommended by our concierge at the hotel because it was close and fine for kids. We ate on the outdoor patio, the feel of the restaurant was very "local". The food was top notch, gourmet in presentation and flavor. We had several seafood dishes around the table which were all spectacular as were the steak and chicken... More

We decided to visit Saqra for dinner as it was very close to our hotel (Casa Andina Private Collection) and we had a quick browse of the reviews on Google and TripAdvisor and it scored well. It was a fantastic decision! We arrived without reservation and were immediately seated without fuss. We were given English menus and the waiter explained... More
