La Candelaria de Lima
Feb 2020 • Couples
Very much enjoyed the show, but we rushed through very heavy, crazy Lima traffic to arrive before the published start time of 9:00PM, only to discover that the show actually started at 10:00. It was very late for a 3- hour show, but the wait and late start time were well worth it. The show was beautiful, the costumes gorgeous, and the MC was energetic and entertaining. The meal was nothing special, but at 11:00PM. I wasn’t that hungry anyway.

Great place to hang out with friends and family to appreciate peruvian dances. You can also dance and participate in some parts of the show. Make sure to order the Lomo Saltado and Pisco sour de Maracuya.

Excellent place to see a wide variety of Peruvian Music

The Peña is one of the best in town , has an excellent live orchestra and has a link with the well known folkloric group which toured Asia and Europe.
Surprisingly for such a place, the food was quite goood as was the obligatory pisco.

A wonderful dinner and show with an excellent host who was very energetic and knew all of the various dances. The show included audience participation and had guests in the audience from all over the world. The food and drinks were superb and the atmosphere was electric. The show included selected guests from the audience from various countries performing their homeland’s folkloric dance!

A fantastically fun night out!
Jul 2019
We really enjoyed our night out at La Candelaria! You may want to arrive earlier if you'd like to eat hear, but the dancing doesn't really get started until 10pm and goes on until around 2 in the morning. The dancing and music are great and the host was funny and entertaining. Great drinks including cocktails. Not the cheapest but well worth it for a memorable evening. Audience participation is very much encouraged - we were glad we'd had a few drinks!

Fun!

We really enjoyed the live music, the variety of dance performances and the appetizers with Pisco Sour drinks! We went on a Friday night and it was not crowded. We arrived around 9:15pm to get a table for 10, but the show started at 10pm. We left the place at 2 am. Parking is horrible so take a cab or have family drop you off. We all had so much fun as we celebrated my boyfriend's birthday. The audience participates by dancing on stage. Great ambiance and reasonable price. Fun place if visiting Lima.

The perfect event to end our trip!
Apr 2017 • Friends
This place had everything to culminate our wonderful week in Lima. As a Peruvian American, I genuinely enjoyed the dance show variety, the audience engagement and interaction from the host, and the food/drinks were pretty good. I wasn't expecting it to be but it was all tasty. I will recommend this to any friends and family visiting Lima! It's a long show so be prepared to leave at 2:30 am to make sure you see everything. Doors open at 8pm but it doesn't start until 9:45. Use the first hour and a half to eat and drink. Or arrive at 9:30.

Good Entertainment while in Peru
Mar 2017 • Family
I've been coming here for 16 years during visits to Lima for both family and business. It is always a fun night out with good folkloric shows, good food and drinks. The only thing is they could use more fans inside as it gets hot on a summer night... For someones first time in Peru, this is a don't miss.
