We had lunch once. The place is very bwautiful.The waiter helped us deciding which typical dishes from Arequipa to try, and all were delicious. We were 4 adults and had 2 entrees and 2 meat main dishes and 2 desserts. Enough food! And delicious! The beef stew was great and the lamb in the wood oven was delicous.

Food is really good and prices are not so expensive. The place itself is very nice and looks very traditional. A lot of people usually go there so you may need to wait between 10-15 if the place is full. Sometimes the waiters and waitress are very busy and not so helpful but overall the experience is great. Don't forget... More

We had to wait a bit (about 45 min.. not too bad) and it was worth it. We did come on the festival of the city's founding so that probably fed into the long lines. While there were a few North American and European tourists the atmosphere was a lot more local with tons of extended families sharing long tables... More

If you want to experience a lunch with typical and local food, this is the place! The food is really tasty and the prices are fair, the environment is quite relax and fun. After lunch, you can walk to Yanahuara and enjoy the view of the city. Highly recommended.

Great ambiance, service, and amazing traditional experience! Awesome to sit and enjoy with the locals. The location is perfect, you can eat and then go for a nice walk around that historic part of town!

An offspring of an original "Picanteria" going back to late XIX C. la Nueva Palomino offers traditional fare from the region with good service and fairly priced. Cauche de camarones -a soup of river shrimps and cheese- is highly recommended.

Had a lovely traditional meal which we ate family style so that we got to taste more dishes. Lots of cheese and potato based dishes. Liked the fried snacks tasting plate.

As a peruvian speaking, I recognize good food and tradition, and you can tell from the start that this place is looking for that. The food was phenomenal, you have to try the chupe de camarones. Everything we ordered was incredible and everything had its "Arequipa" touch. The service was ok, so it doesn't deserves 5 stars. Don't make the... More

This is an expansive, 9-room restaurant with a complete menu of food from Arequipa. The ambiance is rustic, the service very friendly and large portions. We ate Rocoto Relleno that was absolutely the best we ever had in Lima. We may go back tomorrow for Chupe de Camarones!
