After reading many favorable reviews, we were very much looking forward to trying this restaurant. We were not disappointed and had an excellent dinner. Would highly recommend this place.

Located on the second floor of a hotel overlooking a plaza you are immediately aware of the warm hospitality of the staff. Locals and tourists were among the late lunch diners. The multiple waiters who assisted spoke fluent English if that's an issue. Pumpkin Chupe, roast chicken and empanadas hit the spot.

We went as a group of 11 with no reservation and the restaurant was able to accommodate us. Everyone's meal was great. The only thing I need to remember for next time is that in Peru, eggs seems to be on and in everything! The Alpaca curry was lovely as well as the squash ravioli.

Nice service. Two out of four choices were excellent! The other ones so so. Peruvian wine needs to work a lot!

Went for dinner at Chicha on a Wednes night. We were warmly greeted by the hostess. It took a bit before we could have our table in the corner. It was a bit cold and the seats were not all that comfortable. The atmosphere of the place is simple and is stylish decorated. We started with Octopus and stuffed Hot... More

I loved it so much I came back 3 different times. It was a great place to try a lot of different refined Peruan cuisine with a modern touch. The location is great and the restaurant itself is nice and cosy. Service is excellent and the food was delicious, albeit a bit expensive. The cocktail menu allows you to sample... More

This was supposed to be a great dining experience but instead it turned out to be a big disappointment. The place, service and drinks were great but the food needs some major work. We ordered the pork belly and the ribs. Both dishes were so over cooked that not only were they tuff but they were tasteless. After a couple... More

The entire staff was friendly. The menu had a great selection, especially of native dishes. Our dinners arrived and we were amazed by the excellence of the food... More

We tried a variety of dishes and everything was amazing. The service exceeds expectations as well; everyone is very polite and helpful. My favorite dishes were Carpaccio de Alpaca and Ossobuco de ternera. The passion fruit pisco sour was very good as well. Only one thing left to say: 150% recommended!
