Went by myself during business trip. This place changed owner the day I was there, so hopefully it will stay good. I only ate a main dish, but the service was friendly and helpful in the choice of menu. Meat came cooked rare, as I like it so they did great on that. The sauce was a bit to salty... More

We read the reviews, it was close to our hotel Park Plaza so decided to walk here. It is a small restaurant with a small patio. The server promptly seated us. We wanted fish so we went ahead and order two different fish dinners plus a machas appetizer. All three dishes were very good. The service equally good. And I... More

Pisco Sours and desserts were very good, the rest of our meal was only OK with a pot-roast stew that was disappointing. Possibly we picked our four dishes poorly, but the portions were generous, but somewhat bland to our tastes. A bit a pepper and chili sauce helped. The local wine was very good and reasonable.

I am not sure we can do this establishment the justice it deserves in this review. We travel worldwide as I am sure many of you do that use TA. Every once in a while you find some establishment that simply defies description and is simply put a gem of a place. Del Cocinero Bistro is such a place, the... More

We came here based on the Trip Advisor recommendations. Huge disappointment. The food was ok, but not good for the rating and not good price / quality. The waiter took more than 3 times to take our correct order, and also brought us the wrong wine. Seriously? Appetizer with "Crackelet" biscuits (cheap salted biscuits bought at supermarkets) speaks enough how... More

We wanted a special meal for our last night in South America. Del Cocinero Bistro did not disappoint. The service was top notch- friendly and attentive waitstaff. Even the chef himself came out to our table to answer a question we had about one of the dishes on the menu. The food was terrific. I can highly recommend this place.... More

We were advised to try this restaurant by someone in our hotel saying it was very good and close by. Made to feel at home right away. Salmon ceviche to start which was excellent, my wife had goats cheese ravioli in a cream sauce and I had fillets of hake in a seafood sauce. Excellent. The bonus was that the... More

We ended up at this restaurant quite by accident. We had just checked in to the Hitel Orly and we're looking for a bite to eat. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. Our food selections were fantastic. Highly recommended!

Our food was tasty and nicely presented, but portions were far too big, I felt very guilty as I just could not eat all my meal. I had a fish dish which was tasty the others all had steak which was apparently very nice but again too big. The staff were super friendly and the location made it worthwhile, we... More
