We went here and tried several dishes. The beef dish was wonderful. The cold potato dish was very heavy. The kids fish dish was VERy expensive (12 bucks) for about 5 very slender fish fingers and a few fries. The perk here was the flan, good but expensive.

The Machu Picchu was very low key and even blue-collar, but the food was great and very reasonably priced. The fish soup was some of the best I've had, and the ceviche was also very good. Watch our for the Peruvian hot sauce, though (it was on the side).

We went to this restaurant on the back of several excellent reviews. One said it was not to be missed. We are at a loss as to why. Starters: The seafood ceviche was, to be fair, very nice. The fried calamari was mediocre at best. Lastly, we ordered an unusual sounding dish of prawns stuffed in avocado with parmesan. There... More

If you only have the chance for one restaurant in San Jose, Machu Pichu is your choice. The place is typical, menu is great and inexpensive and food is simply awesome. Try Chaufa de Mariscos (Seafood Peruvian rice), corvina macho, and ceviche. Make a room for Suspiro Limeño, a typical Peruvian dessert, with few drops of Pisco, traditional Peruvian spiritual...

We found this place on Trip Advisor and took a cab from our Hotel in the Park Sabana area. Very friendly staff. The menu has all the usual suspects for Peruvian cooking... but the grilled octopus skewers were the best I've ever tasted. My dining companions had the Sea Bass and the Shredded Chicken in garlic sauce. I had ceviche... More
