The place is nice and the food is ok . It is a good place to go with the family and the Pisco Sour was great. The food didn´t impressed me much.

I tried shrimp soup - Chupe de Camarones (46soles) and it was very nice and very big portion. Not too far from the center. Clean toilets. Very nice staff. There are some options for vegetarians.

Pretty poor experience: the food (seafood grill) was tough, or undercooked (chicken); of the on the menu mentioned 4 items of my grilled seafood only 2 were actually served, although after a remark one mollusk was added. The wine bottles of relatively expensive wines weren't shown at the table (glasses of wine came directly from the bar). The Hawaiian sauce... More

From our guesthouse we were recommended to have lunch in this restaurant which was a good recommendation! Absolutely a good choice is the ceviche! And the portion served of all dishes are big.

A group of us went over one night and we were not disappointed. Not the first time I've been here. We order a parrilla, that is a dish to be shared. Basically, a portable grill is brought in and all dig in. The pisco sours kept coming, which as you guys in the know will know is a dangerous proposition.... More

A local recommended us this restaurant to try Cuy. And indeed it was good (can't compare it to other places, though). It's also a place that served vegetables and crispy fries (not the norm in Peru). The waiters were fast, though not overly friendly. But also not unfriendly. The price was rather expensive for Peru but that was expected. If... More

Cons: the prawns were very tiny... like the ones in the maruchamp soup! (NOT KIDDING). It was a pity because tye taste was great but if they're serving baby prawns its a total wasye and i'd... More

We had quite a nice experience - recommended to go here to try the Cuy (but too expensive for something we might not like...) and ended up having some other traditional dishes including the stuffed pepper (so worth it!!) and lots of pork! There was a live band playing the afternoon we went and we had pretty decent service from... More
