Top ranked restaurant and justified! Amazing space. Temple for food culture. Not a simple restaurant but more like a trip through Peru's rich food and ingredients.. Pleasure for eyes and palate! And price is justified.

Ok, this restaurant is not for everyone. You can chose a 12 or 16 course lunch or dinner. The plates come in very artistic bowls and platters depending on the course. Your taste buds travel from the sea to the desert to the mountains. It's...More
