“In my opinion, the best Gaston Acurio restaurant in Peru”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

...and I (believe I have) eaten in all of them. It would be misleading to say this place isn't as "refined" as Astrid y Gaston—the service was outstanding, but it definitely had a more Peruvian flair and much, much bigger portions. This one is a little bit (just a tiny little bit) off the beaten tourist track compared to other famous restaurants, but the trip is worth it.

The food was great.

“Lima restaurant”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Myself , wife & two friends enjoyed a very good meal at Panchita in Lima. The restaurant was full with customers waiting so making a reservation here would be advisable. Interestingly, there appeared to be many locals eating here, always a good sign. We shared beef with fried rice & beans, Milanese veal & ajida de gallina(hen ) with a desert of Picarones. All were extremely good- fresh produce cooked very well indeed. Service was good considering the number of customers. Very well worth a visit.

The restaurante is located in a good neighborhood (Miraflores). The architecture of the restaurant is very nice, the atmosphere inside is cool. About the food i just can say that they have the best "anticuchos" in town.

“Unique Peruvian Street Food Made Elegant”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

We had two anticucho platters (fancy meat on a stick with great sides) with roasted potatoes and choclo (HUGHE corn kernels). Gets VERY busy around 2pm, we got there at 1pm and had not problem getting seated, but you need reservations to be safe. NIce atmosphere, dress ranged from suits to casual (would not recommend shorts). Meat quality was excellent. Keep in mind they charge for the bread they put on the table (it tells you so in the menu if you pay attention, it is only like 2 bucks). We had 2 different Pisco drinks which were quite tasty (I still prefer tequila but when in Lima...). Highly recommended.
