Another nice moment

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... read 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.

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

We went for lunch. The place is lovely. Very rustic. I had a res seca which is a typical. Peruvian meat with cilantro sauce. Delicious! Service was great too. I highly recommend for those who love meat.

Went with colleagues to this traditional Steak House in San Isidro. The service is good, we had molleja, riñones (kidneys), chorizo and morcilla for appetizer. Everything was very good with the exception of the chorizos that looked and tasted more like a hot dog than a Chorizo. I had chicken which was outstanding, juicy, flavorful and well presented. Expect to... More

La Carreta is many things but is at its best a great local steak house. Hosted a business client here during a recent visit to Lima. The atmosphere is perfect for a business lunch and the food and service were spot on. The steaks and sides were cooked perfectly. A bit crowded at lunch but you expect that at a... More
