“Piscos a bit small!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

I was last in Rafael 5 years ago and the quality of the food remains as good as it was then - good to see that rafael is still in the kitchen making sure things run smoothly - the flowers in the loos were spectacular touch!!

“Good food, beautiful people, service can do better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Party of ~15 on a busy Wednesday night. This Lima spot was busy with beautiful people in keeping with the food. I had entrées of ceviche and a main of yellow fin tuna. Service wasn't always attentive though this was a very busy night. Regardless, I'd recommend.

“Just as impressive as Machu Picchu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

I've be coming here for almost ten years, the prices have increased but the quality is consistent, you must go, if you can get in, if not go to the bar, or to El Mercado, the last few times I have ordered the duck, done differently each time but always inspiring,

“Best Peruvian I ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

The food is just delicious! Cannot miss this hot spot, which is very much hidden in the Miraflores neighborhood. Fish plates are my favorite.
