Excellent sea food and other Peruvian dishes

Went for brunch with friends from Trujillo to celebrate Mother's Day. We were seated quickly by polite and helpful staff. The restaurant has an excellent range of food including many based on sea food and "typical" dishes from North Peru. Our meals were excellent and the sea food tasted delicious... read more

El Mochica has always been great for local Northern Peruvian food. Recently the restaurant has been renovated, and is even more spacey. The food is still excellent fare. Very popular with Trujillanos.

We were seated immediately and provided with excellent service and good food. Nice and airy dining area, and nice wi-fi. Reasonable prices for the meal, and pleasant atmosphere make this one a good choice.

Called a tourist restaurant because so many eat there. Outstanding sea food dishes and lots of Northern Peru selections Love the desert cart. If you are there on Monday enjoy the Shambar. Prices are not bad for a Tourist Place!

We were in Trujillo three days and had lunch here twice. Excellent food and dishes from the region, and agreeable staff, too. Recommend trying this restaurant before any other in Trujillo.

We ordered two things, an arroz chaufa with mariscos and a ceviche. Both were great and large enough to give us trouble trying to finish them. The ceviche was very very good, better than what I've had in Lima.

The food was just delicious, even though the restaurant was full the service was very efficient and polite. I cannot comment on the prices since I was invited to eat here but the... More
