Good food for low price

I had the local specialty, sopa seca y carapulcra, very generous quantity and excellent quality. There are also other typical Peruvian dishes, all with a very good quality. The service has been very fast and the final bill was lower than average (50 USD for 4 persons, including wine). It can be... read more

Was not expecting to find such great ceviche in a restaurant known for other things but found it nonetheless. Ambiance is the best in Chincha.

Proper peruvian breakfast or meals, very clean and the service is friendly and efficient. Ask for a salchicha huachana and chicharron con camote, you will not regret it.

My husband and me loved their ceviche with a fish named corvina. I ate a delicious green rice with fried pork. The place is clean and comfortable. The personnel was kind.

We stopped on the way to paracas. The place is within a gas station so we has low expectations. The food was outstanding... We enjoyed grilled lenguado with rice and with a nice salad of tomato and avocado (we asked without onion)

It is on the highway, Pan American, in a gas station. We did not expect anything more gourmet then a 7-11 store but we were pleasantly surprised. I ordered a stuffed fish, which came dressed between two seashells, with asparagus spears, perfectly cooked and drizzled with a sauce. Even the mashed potatoes were good. All the rest of the food...

Best and only place to stop for food while passing through Chincha. The restaurant is next to a gas station and may not look very appealing but the food is FABULOUS. The restuarant also has a bakery that is worth visiting. I had the tacu tacu that was amazing. PS.

A special place, easy to find at Chincha. I eat a perfect tuna, but you need to taste the carapulcra, a regional speciality.
