“Fantastic steak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Had a fantastic South American beef steak here with a baked potato. The bread was delicious too. With two beers and 20 percent tip the cost was $31. Great service too. Steak was better than Morton's, The Palm, or Capital Grille. If this restaurant were near me, I would weigh 300 lbs!

“Great food in a stylish restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

The food here was one of the best meals we have had in Peru. The cost was reasonable and the atmosphere great. We tried to return for a second meal but the wait was over one hour.

“This is the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Lima is the food lovers' paradise! Food are great in general, but the food offered by Panchita was just simply amazing. They make the Peruvian home-kitchen food to a nicely presented restaurant dishes. We had some "wild" choices, but all taste delicious! When I travel to a foreign country, I always love to try local food, because these are the "local touch" for me. Panchita did it so well, the atmosphere was very down to earth. I definitely recommend it!

“Excellent upscale choice in Lima”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We liked the atmosphere, the fresh bread and dipping sauces, the large portions and most important the flavors on nearly everything we ordered. We shared the wings, guinea pig, stew sampler and a 1/2 order of one of the South American steaks. Being from New York we have amazing steaks so the only thing we found bland was the steak. We ordered 3 courses and the starter for 4 of us and were stuffed. You can see my trip details at tabhauser.com peru. This is my personal site w/o any advertising or sign in needed.
Panchita ran us $100 for four people but food like this at home would have been almost double
