Brilliant views, wonderful drinks and a friendly attitude to boot. This is a perfect place either for a drink or a meal

After looking and looking for a place to eat something exclusive from the area I decided to try "El Meson". Very close to "el malecon" and other important sites, they have very original dishes in their menu. I went for the "crocodrile" and I have to say that it tastes just like chicken. My lemonade was cold and delicious. I also had a "cusqueña" which in my opinion is the best peruvian beer you can have. They also have wifi available to their customers. I left very happy.

Great stop for lunch- there is a set menu at lunch time which offers salad or soup followed by a main with a small jug of juice with each for s/16 (around £3.50), which was nice, the service was good and food was lovely it's just on the riverfront. Just make sure to have sugar with the refresco because it's a bit bitter without and you can pay with visa.

Sat out on the walkway for lunch. Service was a little slow, but only one gal was working. Prices were reasonable and the food was good!

Another in the list of 8 or 10 restaurants within a couple of blocks, all of whom are decent but not great. They have some interesting local dishes - my wife enjoyed her alligator steak. Friendly, as are the rest, and comfortable, but not particularly memorable.
