I went at lunch, and paid a pittance for a great meal. Other than street food, this was one of the cheapest meals I had in Peru. The 3 courses were each good. I'd say this food wasn't as much "fine dining" as it was "comfort" food. The atmosphere is more like a cafeteria than a nice restaurant. My meal was a salad, baked chicken and bread pudding. I was a bit surprised to arrive and find Spanish was not spoken! Since we had no French speaking people in our party, we had to take a guess at the menu items. For lunch you get to choose a starter, main course and dessert. It's possible to determine what meat you're getting (pesce, pollo, etc) but other than that, we weren't sure. That was a large part of the fun...seeing what dish came to our table! For a touristy area of Lima, this restaurant offered a better value for the money and something different than the standard tourist food around the Plaza and Church of San Francisco. It's a bit tricky to find, but surely worth it!
