We were on a trip to South America and on a private tour of this area and our guide said this was the one to eat at; amazingly right on the ocean. We had a very nice salad; I had Chicken tho others in our small group had the Cervecia, which is raw fish in Lime juice and very tasty.... More

We found the food at this restaurant to be very ordinary and fairly tasteless compared to most other restaurants we went to on our 2 1/2 weeks in Ecuador and Peru. There must be better restaurants in Trujillo to try. We chose this one due to our guide's recommendation and the fact it was open early. Service was satisfactory but... More

Went here for lunch with our daughter who had been before for a birthday meal previously. Meal was good and staff helpful, we were hoping to see the traditional dancers but they are only there on Fridays and Saturdays apparently.

many options, good service, your Spanish will come useful when ordering. Do not eat the lettuce , just the cooked vegetables. They do use filtered water for ice,but not all drinks come with it.

The second dish I ordered grilled fish with seafood souse, my girlfriend ordered lomo daltado special that was accurately made and delicious. A bit High prices but... More

A bit overpriced on a lot of items, but I guess you pay for the upscale of the restaurant. main plates are not that big, but overall great tasting

We were sent to this place on the advice of our hotel, as it was tourist- friendly and very near the Plaza de Armas. After struggling with the Cheesecake Factory- sized menu in Spanish, we were pleased to find that they had an English version. The rate-limiting factor was our ability to choose our meals. Salad was large and wonderful,... More

I lost a chance while visiting this place and missing Fiesta. Food was average, they didnt have Cuzqueña beer. (THEY OFFERED US PERUVIAN FOOD WITH CORONA). They just don't sell peruvian beer anymore, just Pilsen Trujillo. Huge portions, duck was good but beans where too juicy. Music was too loud. I"ll never return.

Trujillo has many good restaurants, this is not one of them. The food is average, it does not have a lot of variety and the place is not spectacular.

We were disappointed in this restaurant. Terrible service (our beer took 30 minutes to deliver and beverages and meals came out one dish every ten minutes and the food was cold). Food was good but not great - the tacu tacu (a bean and rice dish) was excellent but the goat it came with was over cooked, the ceviche was... More
