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

17 of us went here for a birthday because the birthday boy likes steaks and he was pleased with what he got! Portions were big and one could almost share a plate with someone. Prices were almost twice as much as a regular place. I had the tuna steak which was delicious, but one slice would have been enough rather... More

Very nice elegant place. Perfect for dates or family dinner. Expensive too but definitely worth it. I always go for this meat cut called the cuadril and for some chips. They've also got this amazing salad bar.

An assorted menu, good steaks and prices medium to high. A highly charged country side decoration, old-fashioned, and neglected. A typical problem in Peruvian restaurants, happened to me in this opportunity (is not the first time), the check already includes a tip percentage for services, yet, waiter ask you if you add a tip, to which I replied that they...

We were invited for dinner and I suggested a place where they serve nice steaks. We were advised to come to La Carreta. When reading the feedback on Tripadvisor I feel that people are enthusiastic or very negative. I do not know if we were lucky but I liked everything about this restaurant. The staff is courteous and the food... More

You will love La Carreta. It is so nicely appointed I would return there even if the food hadn't been as delicious as it was. One of my Lima favorites. ENJOY!

It is ok, but nothing to die for. It is quite expensive and it looks very touristic. If I am in the financial district, I will return
