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.

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 :)

A little pricey but the food was beautifully presented and the service was excellent. The dessert of chocolate truffles over banana creme brûlée was decadent....highly recommend.

I had the osobucco de seco which is a simple but delicious dish followed by the chocolate truffles with ice cream and tempered chocolate on creme brulee which was one of the best deserts I have ever had. Service was excellent when I was there on a Tuesday night. I had to hold myself back from licking the plate! One... More

I had a seat by the door to the kitchen. The friendly and efficient staff were coming and going, though it was late in the lunch hour and things were slowing down. Each time a waiter came out, I saw another wonderful sculpture or two. One of these was the fish ceviche our waitress recommended as an appetizer. It was... More

If you want a mixture of home and local Peruvian cuisine, this is a good place to start. This was our first major meal in Peru and we enjoyed it. On a Tuesday at noon, it was empty so we had great service. We tried the local ceviche as our appetizer, and then I had Mushroom risotto and my husband... More
