Description: Saqra, from the Quechua language meaning “little devil”, “naughty” or “mischief maker”. Saqra also refers to one of the characters found in the festival of the Madonna of Carmen in the village of Paucartambo, Cusco. Here, this happy little devil wins the heart of the Madonna with his childish pranks and mischief making as he dances around her playfully in the procession. These ideas inspired the creation of Saqra as a restaurant bar that offers modern Peruvian food where we reinterpret the Peruvian identity in a playful and contemporary key, conjuring up fun and colourful results. Saqra, in essence, is not really a place but a state of mind where this little devil plays a delightful host who wants that all his guests live a unique experience, where they meet again with their the inner child, sometimes long lost.

Basically we enjoyed all we had there. Ofcourse saviche, tataki Bonito and most of all the Allgea Salad.

“Great Peruvian Food with a Twist”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

I've been to Saqra twice, once when it first opened up and another time recently. The restaurant strikes you quickly with it's unique decor and atmosphere. The food is fantastic. Most of the items are Peruvian style dishes, but often with a different preparation or presentation. You end up trying an old favorite in a completely new way.

The appetizers are also very clever and well put together, and compliment the main courses very well.

Service is excellent, and a nice plus is that you can use the outside area and smoke if you want to.

My only knock on the place is that the portions are a little on the small side, you definitely have to get an appetizer and a main course for yourself. The appetizers aren't really meant to share. Essentially food is served in the traditional Peruvian "Menu" style, but they could tell you that up front. Otherwise you might make the mistake of ordering one small appetizer for a few people. But if you know this going in, it's not a problem.

Ideal for romantic dinners, or an evening with your friends.
