We have not been to this restaurant in quite some time but we had good memories of it. So, we took some out of town visitors. The food was quite good as expected. There were very few people dining with us (it was a Sunday evening and it was quite early). So, we were disappointed as the service was quite... More

Beyond the well known "ceviches", this is a good place for traditional Peruvian cuisine. This is the place if you are looking for the traditional Peruvian dishes. Fine quality of food, drink and customer service. The place is usually crowded and very popular with locals. Prices are very reasonable. Recommended.

The food is great, specially the meats. You have to try the "choclo Jose Antonio". I had the "brocheta de lomo" and it was tasty.

In this restaurant you will find many of the traditional Peruvian plates. My waiter was very kind and oriented me in ordering traditional plates. I had the “anticuchos de res” (beef’s heart) and “ají de gallina” (chicken with aji sauce). The place is crowded. Prices are decent.

We used to dine here very often when living in Peru and remembered the fine quality of food, drink and customer service. So, almost 30 years later we come and surprisingly found the same qualities we remembered it for! Thank you for keeping up with the times, for maintaining impeccable premises and for excelling with your traditional wonderful peruvian cuisine!... More

Loved the food, the impeccable service and the ambiance, we ordered a couple of appetizers, pisco sour cocktails, duck and meat, plus suspiro a la limeña, everything was spectacular! Will visit again next time I am in Lima.

This is a signature Peruvian "Creole" cuisine Restaurant. Busy place on weekends, waiting time over 30 minutes . Service is fast and courteous, but food nothing to dig for. You can easily skip it and you would not be missing anything.

I was told this is one of the best typical Peruvian food restaurants, but it turned out other wise - try Siete Pescados Instead

We went to this restaurant for mothers day, we made a reservation at 1 pm so we could eat at a decent hour, but once we arrived to the restaurant they told us that the person that took the reservations for that day didn't tell the manager and so we had to wait like everyone else that didn't make a...
