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.

Nice stop in the Panamerican Highway when you want to go to Paracas or any place in Ica Region. Service is outstanding even when you go during holidays, the food tastes as home-made and is very good.

When the sun is hot and the trip still needs to go on for a while and you need a rest this is the perfect spot. The food and service where really good and friendly. And don't forget to take some empanadas for the road.

Typical seafood restaurant tours to Paracas, Ica and Nazca. Very easy to find is just finishing the Chincha town on the main road on then REPSOL gas station. Everything is fantastic, but the Leche de Tigre, the empanadas are amazing.
