My wife and I were staying at the Melia hotel in San Isidro. We were looking for a restaurant close to the hotel. Sacha is only 6 blocks from the hotel and it is really nice. It is a new restaurant with lovely decor. This is a chef owned restaurant, so the food is prepared with great care. We sat outside in the back patio. As a previous reviewer mentioned, English is well spoken here. Our wait person is originally from New York State, and moved to Peru when she was 11. Coincidentally, my wife and I are also from New York State. My wife had Porcón risotto croquettes, which is only an appetizer, but it was very good. We just came back from Cusco, and she was getting over a bad case of altitude sickness. I had a salad and Charela on mushroom risotto. Charela is a mild Peruvian white fish which was very good, but the mushroom risotto was truly outstanding. We had Sacha trio de chocolate for desert. One was white chocolate Crème brulée, another was a chocolate shell filled with chocolate ice cream, and I forget the third, but all three were very good. We also had a very nice bottle of Argentinean red wine. The service was outstanding! We have eaten at a few very good Lima restaurants, and this one was equal to all of them, but the atmosphere is much more intimate. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys excellent food at reasonable prices. Our total bill includingwine tax and service (tip) was 165 soles. We plan on returning this April when we are in Lima again.

My wife and I had a wonderful dining experience at Sacha. We were greeted by an amiable host named Alberto who spoke English which automatically put us at ease and the young lady who was our server also spoke English. The restaurant is located in San Isidro, one of the nicest areas of the city and the dining area is tastefully done, comfortable, with good lighting and is warm and inviting, complemented by small outside patio.
The service was impeccable; she was attentive and knowledgeable, her recommendations were excellent and the wine pairings she suggested were right on.
We started with the Peruvian classic Ceviche and were pleasantly surprised by the ingenuity of the chef using a “leche de tigre” gelatin over the sweet “camote” potato that I had never seen before. The fish was fresh and the citrus was on point but the gelatin gave a texture contrast that brought this plate to the next level. I was also impressed that the chef came out to the dining room and personally checked on the guests and obviously is well trained. The gelatin I mentioned and the Algarrobina foam on the “Chicha” complementary “Piqueo” signifies that the Chef has a working knowledge of cutting edge culinary tequniques.
The other apps. And our main dishes were also excellent; if you like Duck the Duck Risotto is definitely a must. The menu has a good balance of Peruvian classics and international dishes with an Italian fusion influence. The prices are well within the acceptable range you would expect for a restaurant of this caliber and could even be considered a bargain. The average appetizer was 20 soles (about $7) and the main courses 30-44 soles ($10-$15).
Sacha is a gem, delicious food, full bar with interesting and inventive cocktails and a well balanced wine list. The service and prices are right on I highly recommend this restaurant.
