Excellent Food & Service

If you are in the mood for a great steak this is definitely the place! Steaks are LARGE and pricy but delicious! The salad was also delicious, a small is enough for 2 people. Sides, deserts and wine were also amazing. It's pricy so if you are on a budget you may want to avoid this place. If budget... read more

Of the many Horneros, I like the one of La Molina the best. Very big, comfortable, noisy but familiar, the salón on the end is the best. Very big portions, try the lomo saltado (enough for two). Also good deserts.

I visit El Hornero at least once a month. My husband loves beefs grilled here, specially "entraña" and "angus baby beef". You should start with mushroom grilled as appetizer. When you arrive they always give you a nest with delicious warm tiny breads. Very nice! Excellent place to share a good beef with familñy and friends. The selection of wines... More

I loved this restaurant. It's such a great find near the coast in Chorrillos. It's best at doing meat... we had a table of 4 people, and we ordered the shared meat plate (I can't remember the name, but it has a combination of steaks, sausages, chops, and more - suitable for at least 4 people). It was so nice.... More

Group of 11 people with a mix of seniors, adults, teens and kids. 9 nights in Peru and this was the ONLY meal that everyone was pleased with. El Hornero did it again. We visited this location last year and we were so pleased that we had to bring the entire family this time. Make reservations early for a second-floor... More

This is a party place, quit e big I like the fact they have private room, if you are in a big group. I went there with some clientes, we were 16 people and we enjoyed. Food is good, service is better than the average in Lima. Place to reccomend.

I had the most expensive ribeye. It was an inch thick, must have been around 800 grams at least. Big portions so you can box up the leftovers for the next day. Above average steakhouse!

I visited this restaurant during a business trip to Lima. I decided to partake in authentic Lima barbecue. This place is a delight! Their portions are very generous, the service is superb and the food is delicious.

This place still has one of the best steaks in Lima. It has several restaurants in differnt districts but the original one is this one in Chorrillos. Great service and a fantastic salad. Warm bread and aji and chimichurri sauces are fantastic. Prices are average for the type of food.
