Great food, bad service
Jul 2021
Great food and amazing drinks. However the service was not great. Though the staff was friendly, they were extremely un-attentive and disorganized (this was a Tuesday night so not a huge dinner rush). It took a while to be seated (despite a reservation), no one came to take our order for some time and both drinks and food took forever to arrive, they also messed up the bill and had to fix it. Food and drinks would be 5/5 but service 1/5.

Funky neighborhood some what equivalent to West Hollywood
Apr 2021
This funky neighborhood has hip stores, adventurous and exotic restaurants, art galleries, small parks, dogs off-leash, murals, ice cream parlors, coffee shops, and so on. It is safe enough during the day. The Bridge of Sighs is there.

The Bohemian District of Lima
Sep 2019 • Family
One of my favorite neighborhoods in Lima and absolutely a must for tourists. Easy safe walking will lead you into many attractions and along the way you can enjoy great food, cool street art, and historical sites. The area is full of life and very vibrant. I wish I could have spent more time there.

At the most romantic and bohemian district of Lima!
Oct 2019
"Barranco" is one of Lima's many districts. The area was chosen by Lima's upper classes to build here their Summer and weekend fancy homes. As time passed, "Barranco" became the most romantic and bohemian district of Lima, with the old colonial mansions being converted into restaurants, cafés, bars, clubs, design shops, art galleries and museums. A sidewalk, along the cliffs, although very windy, offers beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean down below, with beaches very popular among local surfers. While visiting "Barranco", don't miss some of its most important attractions: "Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (MAC)", "Museo Mario Testino (MATE)", "Museo Pedro de Osma", "Puente de los Suspiros", "Parque Municipal de Barranco" and "Iglesia de la Santísima Cruz". End your visit at pedestrian "Boulevard Sanchéz-Carrión", near el "Parque Municipal de Barranco", a strip of restaurants, bars, cafés and clubs! Enjoy!

A nice alternative to Miraflores
Mar 2020 • Family
A funky laid back corner of Lima that rewards slow walking and is close enough via the metropolitano rapid buses to most places. If you seek out the area next to the bridge of sighs it gets better and better.

Romantic place
Mar 2020 • Couples
We visited in the evening and it was magical. Right on the coast. So beautiful, and packed with history. Writers, poets and artists filled the area in years past and used it for inspiration. I can see why.
