You get a lot of wonderful food for a really good price. Service may be a bit slow but they are typically very busy so it's understandable. Great chicken!

The dishes are big and very satisfies. Also had there soup that was good. The place is hygienic and also the toilets are clean. I didn't like their lemonade. Probably the slowest service I came across in Peru. The waitress looks like they fast asleep. But cool place and they open many hours a day

If you want to try the traditional dish of pollo a la brasa, or chicken over coals, this is the place to do it. Prices are very good and food is very delicious. The service is decent, and atmosphere is good as well. Good for large groups, as they have dining tables that can accomodate up to 25 people or... More

Everything here is good. The Q'Palta burger with chips for S/9 is excellent. The roast chicken for S/10 is delicious, big and comes with a yummy olive side sauce. The Bistek a lo Pobre is enormous, tasty and is the ultimate reward after a week trekking. All washed down with a jug of freshly made lemonade. The dining room is... More

'1/4 de pollo a la brasa' (blackened chicken) is the most typical Peruvian dish and together with 'Chifa' (Chinese-Peruvian food) are what most Peruvians eat outside their homes with family and/or friends. In Huaraz at La Brasa Roja you can try a really good one.

Huge hamburgers with tons of toppings but the burger was cold and red on the inside. I couldn't eat it, it tasted like raw meat. I hope I don't get sick tonight from the part I did eat. I know that's probably just the way Peruvians cook burgers here, but it's not super safe for their international visitors. I guess... More

Living in Peru, I eat a lot of Chicken (pollo a la brass), going into this restaurant I was unsure whether a 1/4 chicken would cut it, as I feared it would be to small for my healthy appetite. I decided to against upgrading to the half chicken however, and kept it simple with the 1/4. When it came out... More

All the food we've ordered there has been really good. The menu is huge so we figured quality would be low but we were wrong every time. The tomato soup is great. The bread is fluffy. The artesian beer, S10 everywhere else, is only S7 here. Prices are a little lower than other "gringo" restaurants as this one caters to... More

This is a pretty big restaurant and they have all sorts of food (from hamburgers to fried chicken). You won't find typical Peruvian food because this is more of an international restaurant. Their specialty are the burgers, which we very much appreciated after 10 days of only eating chicken :)
