La Casona was recommended by our hotel receptionist and did not disappoint. It is on the second floor overlooking a pedestrian street a long block from the Plaza de Armas and I enjoyed watching the human drama as much as the food. The trout ceviche (it has become the dish by which I judge a restaurant in southern Peru!), was excellent, and the quinoa soup, also very good. Service was attentive and good humoured. I also asked for chicken bullion to take out for my ill husband and it appeared when I paid the bill.
One comment about the man at the entrance with a menu. My experience in Latin America is that his presence has NOTHING to do with the quality of the food inside. On a street with several competing eateries, the opportunity to peruse a menu is quite helpful.
