Jauja has very good food. It is obvious that the vegetables and fish are fresh and the meat is prime cut. There is a good selection of desserts.Most of the desserts are homemade.

We had one of the best pizzas ever. Service was good, atmosphere was very nice, love the tree growing in the middle of the restaurant. A bit pricey but must say it was well worth it.
