Good, unique options

We were staying in a hotel near Danica, and noticed it one night when we walked by and thought it looked neat. We stopped in for lunch the next day, and it was very good. They have some unique options compared to a lot of places in the area. My friend tried the Bailey's milkshake and said it was... read more

The pace is decorated in a dull but comforting way. All the members of the staff are very polite and care for the clients, especially the administrator of the "Emilio Cavenecia" avenue local. I am a frequent visitor at this restaurant and all I can tell is that the quality and ingredients is always very high. Also, they many options... More

We had lunch here with friends and were quite impressed with the quality of the food. The menu is primarily Italian options, many with a Peruvian twist. We shared a few appetizers and would definitely recommend the carpaccio and any of the salads. Our main dishes – lomo with artichoke risotto and spaghetti carbonara – were also delicious. As with...

Great italian-peruvian fusion restaurant. The risotto de lomo saltado (the house's speciality) is one of most tasteful thing I have eaten in my life. Their tiramisu, although a bit expensive, is definitely worth trying. The waiter was very professional. Top restaurant!

I found this nice restaurant about two blocks from the apartment I had rented in Miraflores. It is located on a main street but in a residential area. I thought I would give it a try. I wasn't overly impressed with the food but I did like the environment and cocktails. I would entertain friends here for happy hour. It... More
