We chose this restaurant because of the recommendations we had read, however we were severely disappointed.

However as a result of eating their spent 2 days in bed being very sick... More

My family and I had a lunch of the best, the attention is amazing, food is delicious, which you will love to repeat, the pisco sour is one of the best I've had, very rich. Hary Hernandez is a very kind person, he is the one who serves you and makes you spend an unforgettable time with your family. The... More

First restaurant ever where the waiter took an order and did not bother if we would like something to drink. After ten minutes waiting we had to take the initiative ourselves and order a drink. No efforts were made to make one feel comfortable...

My wife and I decided to visit the restaurant on the last night of our honeymoon as the Rough Guide mentioned the quality of the food and the ambience with live music. The restaurant certainly measured up with the food quality being delicious (amazing trout). Unfortunately though they did not have all the drinks advertised (after asking for 3 different... More

well written about in guide books but I think they must have been from a bygone era. Food was not typical, not too nice, and the atmosphere a but stuffy.

indeed overrated by the guidebooks. There was a group the night we went, so the service for us was slow and poor. The chef was arrogant and unfriendly. The pollo iqueno was good, but we can't recommend this place....

Over-rated by guide books. There is no Peruvian menu of a night so choice is limited to European influenced. Tv with kids cartoons was the ambiance that we were greeted with on our saturday night out! Only one bottle of wine available despite numerous listed on menu & expensive.
