“Good food, nice location, best pisco sour in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Great little place within walking distance of the JW Marriott. Ate here twice while in town, second time was not as good as the first but the pisco sour was unbeatable.

“Excellent restaurant close to JW Marriott”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Seafood was very fresh and expertly prepared and served. Would have given 5-star rating but we were seated in the middle of restaurant and were continually bumped. Sit along either wall, upstairs or outside for a more peaceful dining experience. Will definitely dine their again. As a side note, they have one of the best pisco sours I've ever tasted.

“Best spot in Lima, HANDS DOWN.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

So walking around Lima i tried many places to eat. This area is HIGH tourist so its hard to find local home cooking. When i go travel i want to try the food from the place i am going not tourist stuff. This was the best mix of both! Love the cooking so much the Chef explained to me how to make Lomo and i LOVE to cook so i was taking notes!

-Price was GREAT for the area!
-People were great and nice also know English enough to ask questions. Important for tourist areas.
-Food was fantastic!! I cant express that enough. Good Coffee as well!!
-Honesty here, Restrooms need a little minor updating after that tho... only minor downfall its not bad at all.

Bottom line here people!
If your in Peru you stop here at least once and get the Lomo Saltado!! If i remember its great price for the area around 26Sol = 10.12 US Dollar Cant beat that!!!

I am posting photos because i promised the Chef (and i do me a true Chef) i would.

Keep up the good work guys! I hope to some back to Peru soon and i will stop off and say hi again. :)

Oh one more thing if you have a large group please ask about the upstairs i got the tour of the place and they have a whole lounge up stairs for large groups and the room is BEAUTIFUL with a great feeling of comfort!

Kept my word guys!! Hope you see how much i liked your restaurant!!

“Very Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

Across the road from the ibis hotel which we were staying in, the food here is excellent. It's not cheap but you get good quality and taste in return for your money. Nice decor too.

“Good Enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

If you don't expect to have authentic middle-eastern food here, you'll enjoy your meal. The service is good, the ambience is great (lots of art all over the walls) and the food is a real value. The food tastes good, and I particularly (and suprisingly) enjoyed their falafel and "ensalda arabe" (their version of a tabouleh). Their hummus is not my favorite, but it's good enough that I've ordered it more than once. Their bread is not pita, but is quite good. I've heard Peruvian clients comment on their Peruvian dishes as tasty as well, but haven't tried that part of the menu yet. They do offer shisha smoking, but I haven't tried that yet either.

Bottom Line: Check your expectations for authentic middle-eastern at the door, and you'll enjoy this inexpensive little restaurant.
