I loved Machu Pichu! The grilled octopus and shrimp with parmesan were absolutely fantastic. They serve seafood, and Peruvian classics, including various potato and meat dishes. This is a bit more on the pricier side, expect to pay 50$+ for two people but the food was cooked excellently, waiter was friendly, and an English menu is available

While visiting Panama City, Panama we had heard of the great food at Machu Picchu Restaurant. We were not disappointed! My wife and I enjoyed excellent and tasty meals of: Sea bass (corvina) with prawns in a light white wine sauce ( unfortunately the lobster medallion was not available) and tenderloin steak cubes with a rice and white bean mix....

We were excited to try Peruvian food. There specialty is seafood. We ordered the variety plate to share which had octopus, squid, potatoes, chicken fingers (?) and ceviche. Octopus chewy and little flavor, squid was fishy tasting, potato's bland, ceviche way to much lime, hard to eat. Chicken fingers was the best item on plate, weird. Ordered a drink and... More

I just had THE most delicious lunch of my life at a Peruvian Seafood restaurant recommended to me. Amazing. A dish called "Seafood Saltao": "A mix of seafood tossed on the spot with onions, yellow Peruvian chile, tomatoe and siyau Peruvian soy sauce." Served with rice. Tasted like the sea -- every bite. Fresh al dente vegetables & abundant mixed... More

We ate here on our first and last nights in Panama City. Both times the food was excellent and the service quick by Panamanian standards. We ordered the same things 10 days apart and the food quality and taste were consistent. It's a nice sized restaurant with indoor seating out of the heat. I would recommend this place if you're...

Upon arrival, our server mentioned that they were out of basically all vegetables which limited the sauces and sides they could make. Even though the things we wanted from the menu were unavailable due to this, we understood and still had a decent meal. It is also forgivable to run out of veggies especially around the holidays. What isn't ok... More

I hate writing bad reviews, but we went there with my husband after reading all the good reviews and are a bit confused as this has been one of the worst meals we had in a long time! We travelled in South America for 6 months and spent over a month in Perú and this was not peruvian food!! I... More

We had dinner at this restaurant twice and thoroughly enjoyed the food. Since all the family love Seafood, we tried mostly the fish dishes. The Seafood Paella was excellent and the Ceviche was the best we have ever hand. Here also if you don't like to drink alcohol try the LEMONADA excellent. If you are planning on having dessert, the...
