“excelent ambience, badservice”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

I usually do not like to write a bad review, but I wanted to try the restaurant that I went before a couple of years ago and love it, but this time I went with my mother we were there before, also and she like it, well everything fine, very nice enviroment, excelent ubication ( just shy of 1 block from main plaza) great menu, prices uhmmm in the upper level for my taste so I wanted to eat something light ,I asked for a sandwich called the special club. moderate price, nice and warm, my mom asked for a lasagna..frist it took too long the get to the table both dishes and second my mom got sick..again service was lousy every time we needed something the waiter did not look at us, and when he did he just ignore us, so not a good experience there. I wont go back there instead will try something new.

A big, fancy expensive shopping mall. Might as well stay in the US as to go here. Very nice inside, but not really "Peruvian".

“Lots of Pricey Shops”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

It´s located on Mercaderes, a street closed to traffic that ends at the Plaza de Armas.
This street has a starbucks, burger king, kfc, and pizza hut! I was so surprised to see it!
We went to Ekeko just for the public bathroom, which was always hard to find in Peru.
