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

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

Just the right place for that really tasty meal you wanted all day, it's like a fancy homemade food, a very good quality lunch or dinner. Try the risotto de lomo Saltado, the ravioles in asado sauce!!! A very good price/quality, nice place and for the past 4 years a great service
