“Food was overcooked and burnt with too much salt.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

I had the surf and turf kabob. The ingredients were probably good but it was precooked and warmed up which resulted in fish that tasted like an old eraser. The shrimp was burned. The salad was OK. My wife had the shrimp appetizer which was overly salted. We did not finish our meals.
The atmosphere was good and the service was average with little enthusiasm.

“Always Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

There are many restaurants in this area and this is a hidden gem it seems for the many tourists in the area. The sea bass is excellent and it is very typical Costa Rica flavors that never dissapoint. We always go to Machu Pichu when in San Jose and have always had excellent food, service and value when we go.

“Good, pricey Peruvian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

In Paseo Colon area. Suggested by our hotel owner. He told us it would be pricey before we went. While value is in the eye of the consumer, I was very pleased with the food at this restaurant.

“Regular Peruvian restaurant.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We liked Mchu Picchu but we held greater expectations about it. The service was good. The food was just like the food in any other regular Peruvian restaurant and the place seemed a little dingy to us.
