This was a delicious and most relaxing lunch spent outside under an umbrella on the patio. Our beef kababs were tender and very generous portions! Service was excellent. This is a great place to satisfy your your craving for high quality beef.

In the area this is one of the eldest Restaurants - it is there since more than 30 years. It is the melting Point for Business lunch and offers a wide variety of typical Peruan cooking - super delicious. Also the Desserts are great and the Prices are acceptable. In evening hours a bit less frequented but still a place... More

If you want to have a good steak in Lima, this is the place to go. They have excellent "achuras" and the meat is either from the USA or Uruguay, both of excellent quality. Salads are fresh and good. The Carpaccio is over decorated with too many toppings. Right now the street where it is located is under construction, but... More

This place is packed at lunchtimes. Why.....because it is so good ! It is a local style restaurant focusing on steaks and certainly the cut I had was divine. Thoroughly recommend visiting this place as the atmosphere is great and the food to match.

Went here for a birthday dinner with another couple. The birthday boy wanted beef so our Concierge recommended here. It was a great recommendation. We had table grilled appetizers, great steaks and a really good selection of wines. Very good moderately priced Argentine, Peruvian and Chilean wines were available. The service was very adequate, not fabulous, the menu almost too... More

This is a good choice if you want meat, plenty of options. Beware that during weekdays lunch, it could get busy, but anyhow it does not affect the service quality. Great wines as well.

From Financiers to comerce, everyone that is somebody will have lunch in this restaurant sometimes during the year. So if your business lunch take you there, you... More

Great spot for a heavy meat laden lunch. Pork or beef - cannot go wrong. Vino tinto and you are all set

I had lunch here three times on my last trip to Lima. The restaurant is close to our office which is a plus, but the food was also very popular with all our Lima staff. This is a great choice if you want meat....they have lots of choices. The portions can be quite large....especially for the suckling pig. By my... More
