Beautiful dinner!!

Always when we were coming back from a mountain trip we were already dreaming about late dinner at El Fogon - a well done chicken (in every possible way you want, grilled, saute, cordon blue etc.), big portions plus french frice and a nice price (not to expensive, quater of the chicken, 12 soles) that was it what we wanted...

The food was good not great. This was a good choice just not anything to write home about. Atmosphere was okay too, a typical Peruvian grill and chicken restaurant.

Wow! What a find. El Fogon is great. It's mainly frequented by locals but don't let this stop you if concerned about quality or pre climbing hygiene. This place is clean, the staff incredible, English menu's and food incredible. Vegetarians might be disappointed at the choice of 2 pastas but carnivores will love the steaks. Chorizo also great. Fantastic wine... More

El Fogon has great options. Great Peruvian food, great lemonade. They have a large room for bigger parties and many big plate options to share. Their chicken, steak and pork chops are all good options. It's location is good (on the main drag, near the plaza, second floor). Go try it out!

Definitely a locals favorite. The "menu" (fixed price 3 course offering) was delicious and incredibly cheap. Just arrive before 2. Made the stop here several times, for dinner as well.

This seems to be where all the locals go when they need a meat fix. We ate an enormous mixed grill, huge pile of chips and salad. It tasted good and was good value too. The staff are atentive and the dining room is atmospheric.

Wow I loved this place! Went with some locals and had a tasty meal, lots of food, and what a great price. Nice to leave the Periodista area and eat sort of locally, especially if you are really hungry.

We came here several times and enjoyed it each time. The price is higher than most places, but lower than some of the other gringo haunts around town. The salads are good. So is the chicken, rabbit, and trout. Service is okay. If it's a little slow or things get forgotten it's balanced out by cheerfulness and good table manicuring.
