I love the setting of this restaurant, wine locker, the veg table and they have a decent space too for a large group. Not a lot of veg select though but the beef was very nice and tender.

We bumped into this restaurant by accident since the prior restaurant that we had in mind was closed. Let me say that we were not at all disappointed. We had a lovely gentleman named Arturo and Rosario that were very attentive and informative on our menu selections. We ended our Peru trip with a nice elegant and delicious dinner that... More

I went for lunch. The limonade was extremely sweet. I ordered asado for main course and it was so salty. I couldn't finish. They didn't apologize for anything; therefore, the service was poor without mention the price is expensive for a poor service. Lima has many good restaurant for have of price and better service. I don't recommend this restaurant.

This a royal and grand experience in fine restaurants in the central financial area of Peru, downtown San Isidro. The bar before the meal sports an impressive accomodation of comfort and classic Peruivan Style. The salad bar is great, and the private dining area underneath the main restaurant is fit for any great occasion of 25 or 30 people with... More

Fantastic meat quality and cooking, great Pisco Sour and very nice colonial atmosphere. Only bad aspect is that I called to make a reservation a couple of hours before lunch time, they confirmed it but upon arrival, they told me that they had no reservation for us, no excuses either, we had to take our lunch at the bar... :(

Be very careful here, this restaurant is going down hill on a slippery slope. As the owner of 3 hotels with bars/restaurants and 2 Irish bar/ restaurants I don't ever comment because I really feel disappointed when I get bad reviews and ratings. Anyway things here started out badly, we walked in and it was empty, no hostess and no... More

Had family lunch there 25/6/16. Walking in was that in itself an experience, the plants were all well taken care of, clean, green and blooming. Vintage furniture. Waiters ready. Attention A1. Now the food was delicious. Some persons in my party enjoyed the well-served salad bar: lots of fresh veggies: artichokes, two types of lettuce, arugula, beets, bacon bits (freshly... More

I really like this restaurant the decor and ambience is great , however it is expensive . For the prices they charge I would expect freshly made chips not microwave :/ the steak and other dishes are great but I feel that the chips really let the place down ! It's a shame as is something very simple to get... More

Lima has plenty of good steakhouses but Carreta is one of the traditional ones, in the heart of San Isidro's financial sector. Parking can be stressful so better to go without a car. Service is impeccable, and the decor is traditional of Lima of the last centuries. You have a choice of outdoors eating, with very good shades if you... More
