Went here on a referral and it didn't disappoint. What an amazing experience, not only the food was out of this world but the service impeccable. A must when visiting in Lima. Prices on point for all the food you get. The owner also came over to make sure everything was fine. Great guy Great food Great restaurant.

Soo we went there to celebrate my dad's anniversary. The decoration and atmosphere was great, the food was really good and tasty. The salmon I ordered was soft and melted in my mouth! The only thing I can criticize and which really bothered me was the attention, it was kinda poor. But aside from that, everything was great!

American Baby Beef full of fat, could only eat a third of the meat spending over $30. Don't waste your money in... More

When we entered to the restaurant nobody was in the entrance, no host there, is this possible?the rest was almost empty, so it didn't offer you a kind of security.... More

For a city that has so much seafood, finding a steakhouse was a pleasant surprise. There were a lot of families, however this was perfectly suitable for a business dinner. The service was outstanding and for non-Spanish-speakers, the waiters were fully bilingual in English and Spanish. The steaks prepared just right. Even better, it was a terrific value, and both...
