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.

“Magical place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

We went in a large group, but I think the environment suits better for small groups or couple. Food was delicious but our order didnt come all at once, that was a bit dissapointing for some of us. The waiter could have done better with the drinks menu...

“Great flavors, interesting combinations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

We've eaten there twice and the food was great. Last visit we shared appetizers: rare bonita in lime/basil sauce, panko prawns with passion flower/ginger dipping sauce, and panko/sesame seed crusted scallops with local salad. Everything was outstanding, bursting with flavors. Coupled with a bottle of wine, it made for a lovely afternoon.
