A Local and Very Good restaurant

We dined at this restaurant one evening and found it to be frequented by locals. No one spoke English and there was no menu in English either. We sort of guessed what to order and every dish turned out to be very good. We would recommend dining there without hesitation.

The staff is nice but not always very organized. The restaurant is not super clean and the food is mediocre.

Recommended by our private guide, this tiny local restaurant is very close to Hotel Costa del Sol Chiclayo. Attentive service; limited English spoken. We ordered the ceviche: huge portions, tasty, but not exceptional.

One of the oldest & most traditional restaurants in the city. Food is OK and servings are enormous, but I think it is overrated by locals. I should've follow my instincts and go to Fiesta Restaurant

We ate here twice, once for a late breakfast and once for lunch. Breakfast was pretty good but lunch felt quite expensive for not great quality food. Huge portions rather than great taste.

Every time I am in the city of Chiclayo, Peru, I make sure to eat there at least once, but most often I and up eating there every day of my stay. The decor is nothing special, but food... a nirvana of taste. My preferred is parihuela; a sort of seafood stew, or Peruvian bouillabaisse. last time my wife liked... More

This is a solid,middle-of-the-road restaurant. Nothing that we had was spectacular but neither was it questionable. The service was very fast and friendly and it was obviously popular with the locals. If you are looking for a meal more than an experience, this is a good choice.
