I'd passed this place several times but only took notice of it when I needed a restaurant with Wifi. Unfortunately, I felt unwelcome the moment I walked in. I know it's tough to be in the service industry, and I understand people can have an off day, but the waitresses saw fit to look at me as if I shouldn't have been there at all or just ignored me completely. They were ridiculously unfriendly and when I asked questions about the menu was given curt responses.
Regardless, I stayed and ordered Chirimoya (a fruit) with milk - a wonderful drink, thick and milkshake-like and a greek style lamb sandwich. One might be disappointed as the meat isn't in the same style as the strips of lamb one gets with a gyro (my favorite), but with the yogurt sauce it tasted enough like a gyro but with a delicious, original twist. The red peppers in the dish added great flavor. All in all, incredible food.
Finally, when I went to pay with a 100S bill the waitress rolled her eyes and told me she didn't have change. By this point you'd think I wouldn't have been shocked by the attitude, but I was. I tried to see if I had enough in small bills and coins to pay my bill but didn't - at which point she produced the change for the 100 immediately. On leaving I said thank you and got no response - so much for trying!
Usually I make a point to steer clear of places where I'm going to be met with an attitude, but I also adore good food. This restaurant is probably reasonable for a tourist, as I'm on a Peruvian budget it's a slight bit in the expensive range for me but a good value. I know I'll be coming back here and I truly hope that the day I went was an exception rather than the rule in terms of my treatment.
