The antichuno was amazing and I'd recommend the chocolate tort. I'd probably skip the potatoes and corn, but that's just me. They didn't have beer here which was a let down. Other than the waiter having us sit right at the entrance of a massive...More

Be prepared to share as the servings are generous. The quality of the food is top notch and the service fine. We had the fried trout, the grilled calf liver and the famous picarones for dessert. We went to the one on Avenida San Martin.

This place is always mentioned when talking about the best anticuchos in town and it's easy to see why... Perfectly prepared, great side dishes, substantial portion, all served with a smile! It gets an extra nod for the location alone.

I liked the dishes that we tried but somehow I felt like they were missing something. I guess we were expecting a bit more. The chicha morada though, that was really amazing here! If you are in Barranco, there are other options too. But again,...More

Wow! I thought I had eaten the best anticuchos de corazon in Peru. Well, I hadn't. Not until I had these succulent morsels at Tio Mario in Barranco. Perfectly cooked, wonderfully seasoned and tender as a new mother. They just can't be better

We just passed by this place looking over the famous bridge of sighs and stopped for drinks and snacks to enjoy the view from the balcony. Portions were big, service was fine. Loved the papa a la huancaina!
