Delicious Peruvian food

Our lunch here was great! I had the jalea de mariscos and all the seafood was fresh and delicious. My boyfriend had the steak with pepper sauce and it was huge and delicious! Great lunch. I loved it.

Without a doubt the most incredible fish and mariscos I have had in Panama. WOW, must check this place out. Try the shrimp stuffed corvina (sea bass).

Glad I found this spot hidden one-street behind avenida central (Central ave). It is located directly behind the Banco Nacional - definitely order the ceviche (I personally like the ceviche mixto which includes shrimp, octopus, squid, with the fish) or just straight ceviche made with corvina, plus causa. A treat!

We were excited to come here to eat, but very disappointed to find out that they were completely out of any beef so those plates were off limits! The ceviche, however was great and the pisco sours very tasty too!

We enjoyed a very good Peruvian meal with a Pisco sour. Corvina was very good along with superb sauce and vegetables. This place was just as good as the Peruvian restaurant we ate at in Panama City if not better. I would highly recommend it, and my wife and I will probably be returning before our vacation ends

My wife and I joined two other couples for a lovely dinner at Machu Picchu. We ordered a variety of appetizers and main dishes and created our own smorgasbord -- and what an adventure that was! While everything was delicious (well, the squid ink dip was an odd thing for sure) -- the very BEST dish was the ceviche! Spicy,... More

Machu Pichu is worth the visit if you love or show interest in Peru’s excellent cuisine. The flavors are very rich and pleasant, and the decoration is very nice. On the con side the service is quite slow. When I visited it there were few customers and it still took them forever to wait on us and bring us our... More

I was looking for some Peruvian food for my birthday and was not disappointed. I chose this place because I heard the other one, La casa de Cusco, was expensive, and it also seemed to have strange hours. The ceviche was great, as were the entrees and Pisco Sours.
