Nice restaurant

It is ok, but nothing to die for. It is quite expensive and it looks very touristic. If I am in the financial district, I will return

You will love La Carreta. It is so nicely appointed I would return there even if the food hadn't been as delicious as it was. One of my Lima favorites. ENJOY!

When you get in from the street you do not imagine to find a hacienda stlye building and decor in the center of the city. A ver cousy place to have an excellent dinner. Service is good, polite and speedy.

The worst service anywhere in Peru. We called in advance to ask if open, they said yes and waited for us. We arrived around 3h30 pm for a late lunch. The restaurant was empty, it took them 10 min. to get us a table... When we were seated at the table the waiters ignored us completely for about another 15... More

The place is very nice and with a good atmosphere. Excellent food, you go to La Carreta to eat meat. I had a bife de chorizo, the quality was very good. Good choice of vines. Buffet overpriced.

The place is very spacious. Most likely they were expecting more customers given the amount of waiters present. We ordered the Lomo and a porter house. Unfortunately the steak was not warm in the middle so I gave it back. They came back and I realized they put it in the microwave. This for me is unacceptable in a restaurant... More

We went in December with my Peruvian husband and his best friend. They used to eat here years ago and were raving about it. 3 hours and £300 (yes, GBP) later, we left feeling abused and ripped off. I have never eaten such tough meat. It was inedible, and that's from a serious carnivore. Lima's restaurant scene is on fire... More

For many, this place has the reputation of best in San Isidro for important business meetings. However, although the interior has a nice touch, the food (meat) quality is not as high as in other places nearby. The desserts, however, stick out positively.
