Nice place, good meat

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 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 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.

It does not matter what your order, everything is very good. Don´t forget to ask for dessert, specially Suspiro de Chirimoya, is the best. They have a beautiful private room which can be book if the number of persons is bigger than 10, and maximum 16, just call to check availabity. 100% recomemded.

Big steakhouse in Lima. If you want to enjoy a "Lechon al Palo" (milk piglet barbecue), reserve your table and be there before 13:00, Monday to Friday. But anyway they have a great variety of prime cut Angus and Kobe beef. Attention, quality and service are great, although (in my opinion) it is not the best steakhouse in Lima; but... More

Probably the best steakhouse in Lima. Great food and service. Generous portions. A meat lovers paradise. A bit pricey but worth it.
