“Price worthy”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

This is a very good mid range restaurant. We visited the restaurant two times. Both fish and meat dishes are good. Our steaks were cooked exactly in accordance with our instructions. Wine list is good with very low prices. Julio took good care of us.

“Avoid!!!”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

We were cajoled into this place by an over eager waiter who saw me perusing the menu. Not only did it take 35 min for our "starter" to arrive but when it finally did, the chicken was still raw. 15 min later we got our main entrees. My lomo saltado was almost indelible, the meat tough and over cooked, the fries cold. My husbands entree was lukewarm but better than mine. Waiter showed us that he removed the chicken finger appetizer from our bill as if he was doing us a favor. He offered us an already free map as compensation for the missed opportunity at great food in this city with so many better restaurants.

“A Great Find in Lima”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

On our first night in Lima, we were wandering, looking for a nice place to have dinner, when we noticed this restaurant on a small street off Av Largo. Much quieter than the main street, the menu looked interesting so we stopped. Had our first Peruvian beer, Cusquena for me and Crustal for my wife. The ambiance was very nice as we watched the street get dark and saw people scurrying in all directions, while we sat under a canopy enjoying. Dinner was great. I had a beef dish and my wife had chicken. Our server, Marco, made sure everything ran smoothly, and as we were leaving, gave us a map of the area so we could find our way home.
All in all, a great find and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“First time trying Ceviche”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Wasn't sure what to expect from raw fish in a foreign country, however, marinated in its citrus juice and spice, it was quite nice!! Polished it off with a Cusquena. Excellent meal and Angel is an excellent server and quite comical.
