“good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This place gives local food a very special flavor since different ingredients are used. Additionally, there is a great variety of food and waiters are very friendly always attempting to provide a better service by asking if everything is okay, if there's something else you need, etc.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

I was told the vegetarian hamburger was delicious so I order one and...I was disappointed when I tasted it. Not much taste. I would happily have spent those soles on other food.

“Trying to be something that it shouldn't.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

A cute little restaurant with a very friendly owner who, we are told, used to be the chef. We are also told that he can actually cook the plates on the menu although his cooks clearly cannot. A real shame. A menu that promised much but a kitchen that delivered little!

“Delicious food! But be prepared to wait for it...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

Really nice food. The duck magret with sauco sauce was an absolute win. Excellent presentation and flavors. The problem, they took around 40 minutes to bring it over. Also highly recommended the tequeños of lomo saltado and rice with duck a la Don Paco. Try the Tuna juice, really nice!

“Try the duck with salco!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

One of the best dishes I ever had in Peru, the duck breast with salco (elderberry) sauce was unbelievable. It's a bit pricey at 30 soles, but for a special treat well worth it.
