We visited this bar at the beginning of the night. It is very well located, half a block away from the main square. I was looking for craft beer, they didn't have a very good selection, but was enough for me.

We spent a long afternoon in here enjoying drinks, chatting with the staff and using their strong wifi signal to watch collegiate (American) football from our slingbox off our phones, while also enjoying the Rugby and Futbal games on their TVs. Drinks were cold, staff was friendly and service was great. Live musician in the evening was outstanding. Our friends... More

We were looking for somewhere to go on a saturday night that was reasonable, we walked past and saw there big promotion outside 'Meal of the Day 15 soles'. It didn't have any other info that we could see and we thought that sounds good. The burger was ok and the chips were alright, a little greasy but it was... More

I sought out The Cross Keys after reading about it in a guide book about Peru. The experience was okay. The food was decent, the drink selection was big and they had a few TVs for watching sports. It was overall a decent experience.

We happened to be hungry and so somewhat reluctantly ordered dinner. I ordered a hamburger and my buddy ordered a quesadilla. Portions were very large but the food was average. During the... More

We stumbled across this restaurant while cold and hungry and was invited by not pushy tauter. We follow him upstairs and there it was. Cosy and tastefully decorated with pleasant music. The food was delicious and we couldn't believe it costs only 15 soles. Limo Saltado was the best I had in Peru. Waiter was happy and courteous English speaking... More
