Good food, great portions and tardy service!

We gave this place a try after reading all the great reviews on TripAdvisor.. Also, we have never tried Peruvian cuisine so it was somewhat of a novelty for us.. We had very high expectations from the place and it would be fair to say the food did live it up.. We ordered a fish and shrimps entree... read more

Walked to this restaurant from our hotel, very convenient location. Ordered the sea bass ceviche which was delicious! For our meals we had two steak dishes and they were to die for. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

We had a fabulous meal, with great service. My wife had a Pisco Sour made in the old fashioned style, however, when we studied the bill more carefully back at the hotel, we discovered that we had been charged $35.00 for the one drink!

The Sea Bass is excellent and the different sauces, wow. It has gotten more expensive though. Good atmosphere, very romantic, close to the Cacts hotel.

We went here on our last night in San Jose. The food was all delicious, and the portions are very large. Highly recommended going here if you're in the area.

My husband and I had a great dinner here. The food was good (I had a fish soup) and it was nice to eat with some locals in a casual setting rather than in a fancy tourist hotel restaurant. I've never been to Peru, so I don; t know how authentic the food was, but it was good! I would... More

We had a great dinner there and were very impressed with the service, the quantity and quality of the food. The waiter was excellent and the location convenient to our hotel (Grano de Oro).

Authentic, delicious Peruvian cuisine. I ordered the "Arroz con Pollo a la Peruana," which was a chicken dish with arroz verde and cilantro, and it was delicious! My parents ordered two different types of Sea Bass, and they said it was the best Sea Bass they had eaten. This restaurant has a great location, one block off the main road.... More

We followed the advice of the Rough Guide and sought out this restaurant, actually very near our hotel, the Grano de Oro. The food was really good and a lot cheaper than the hotel. We had the sharing platter of fish which included lobster - lots of food. The pisco sour is worth a try too, but very alcoholic. I... More
