We went there twice. We loved the food. They have excellent fish and seafood. The service is slow, as is customary in Panama. The staff are very curtious. Prices are reasonable. They specialize in Peruvian food.

This restaurant serves great Peruvian food at reasonable prices. The wine list isn't extensive but there is plenty of choice and the prices are competitive.

Is have been lucky to visit several Peruvian restaurants in Latin America and US. This place is below expectations or at least based on the reviews; poor variety of Ceviches and Tiradiros, or maybe it was just bad luck. I had the grilled Octopus (tiradito or ceviche) and the huancaina tiradito, not good. Restaurant needs maintenance, ambiental music remind me... More

Had the Fish Ceviche Classic and their signature dish Machu Picchu Seafood. Both were fantastic as was our server Gio. Will definitely return. Thanks!

We are there twice. It was just around the corner from the Toscana Inn where we were staying. Food was good, prices reasonable, staff were helpful.

We visit Machu Picchu for the Peruvian dishes. It was a little to find because has no big sign. The environment, was good and with interesting decoration. We tried fish soup and grilled sea food for two (fish, octopus, shrimps etc). The fish and shrimps were very well cooked, the calamary and shells were overcooked. We also have peruvian beers...

We had dinner here one evening, clearly before the rush arrived. Our waiter wasn't too interested in caring for us, more in the Olympics on the nearby t.v. It was a bit of a sad sight, as there were 5 or 6 men standing around, apparently waiting for the Monday night rush. The decor's nice enough, pics will attest. When... More

We went for lunch here and were not disappointed. Being seafood lovers we shared the Octopus Ceviche and the grilled seafood platter, both were delicious. The Pisco Sours lived up to their reputation. Service and restaurant were great.

We've had large family dinners in this restaurant, and it has been very comfortable, private and the food just delicious. Great and prompt service. Drinks are also really good. We have also been here alone as a couple, and it has a nice comfortable ambiance for a date night.

This restaurant was close to our hotel in El Cangrejo and provided an opportunity to taste Peruvian food and drinks. Our server did not speak a lot of English but she was patient with us and our poor Spanish and we worked things out. I strongly recommend the Pisco Sour (if you like alcoholic drinks) it was great. We ate... More
