Not so impressed

The exterior offered a misleading impression. The ambient inside is too big and impersonal, as the attending personnel. I asked for mixed brochettes and the quantity and quality didn't match my expectations for the asked price. I think this place is more suitable for local people, not for tourists.

We are the Curry and Orange Chicken with rice and french fries. The chicken was tender, the sauced (five to chose from) good and the french fries thick and crispy (unheard of for Peru). Price was ok and service quick.

Excellent roast chicken, huge portions, good value. Decent service and amazing desserts! Our friends didn't think their pizzas were very good, but with chicken this good who needs pizza?!

The food was good, but when the check came we were surprised - it turned out that the prices on the English menu that we've ordered from weren't correct, and the true (higher by about 25%) prices are written in the Spanish menu. Although we don't speak Spanish and non of the crew didn't speak English, we didn't get the... More

I love the Pollo a la Brasa here and the great selection of soups and lasagnas try one with red sauce. It is a great place for dinner with a semi casual atmosphere and great food. If only they served some artisinal beers... I would would love to give this place five stars (well, circles), but the service is sometimes... More

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner because we had read good things. Overall, I'd go again specifically for their chicken dish. Everyone was getting that around us! We branched out instead. I had the Lomo Saltado, a Peruvian classic and my boyfriend had the pork. His dish was really salty, mine was great. The service is a bit... More

This seems to be a popular place as it was packed with both locals and tourists. We ordered a whole chicken with fries but unfortunately the chicken was tough and partially undercooked and the fries - despite having asked for 'crocante' (i.e. crispy) - were soggy and we had to send them back.

A tiny entrance leads to a massive venue busy with locals. A large menu but most seemed to be here for roast chicken dishes. The food was great value for money and of a quality that belies the price, but it just felt a little impersonal and functional, hence only 4 stars.
