Very busy restaurant, fair service but very good food. The swordfish skewer or "anticucho" as it is called in Peru is simply juicy outstanding. If you go without a reservation, be ready to wait up to 40 mins. There are some "special" foods such as skewered cow heart, very good and the guinea pig, did not get that far

I saw all the great reviews - I thought I should go and check it out. I arrived by myself to sit at the bar and have dinner. It was fantastic!!

The people were very nice and quick to service my needs. Drinks, starters, bread / cheese, hot salsa medley - everything was great.
I can't wait to go back.

Our hotel recommended this place to us. They had no reservations so we sat at the bar. The food was amazing! We ordered off the spanish menu so we werent really sure what we were ordering but it was all so good.

We started with the yuca fries with 5 different dipping sauces. The only down side of this was it was very very filling. We fish and pork for our entree. Both protiens were cooked nicely. The pork was served two amazing sauces, a sweet bbq one and a spicy pico de gallo. The service at the bar was great too.
Overall a must eat in Lima!!

Make a reservation at Panchita as soon as you arrive in Lima, it gets very busy. Deservedly so. The food, service, and atmosphere are all top-notch. If you love wine they have an extensive list, although the good stuff is very pricey. Great place for a group of friends to celebrate. As in most Peruvian restaurants the staff seem genuinely happy to have you there.
