They bring Angus prime cuts and even American Kobe. I'm pretty sure this is the only place in Lima that you can find meat with this outstanding quality. Well worth the visit. Food is delicious and service is great!

Lima is known for its great seafood, ceviche, and sushi. If you're fished out, Carnal is a great place to grab some red meat. They offer a great selection of local/import beef. We started with the beef Carpaccio, a delicious appetizer done with some flare. The bone-in Rib Eye was the special, and it did not disappoint. It was well cooked (Latin American restaurants tend to overcook) but this came out perfectly medium-rare. Their house fries are addicting.

The service was spot on all night, our waiter was attentive and ready with a suggestion or two. The ambience is quintessential steakhouse, low lights and leather. Great for a special evening.

This is an overrated restaurant in Lima Peru. In a city with more than its share of top quality restaurants to choose from, this one is a total miss.
We arrived and despite the restaurant being half empty, we were told to wait while the table was made ready. Once we sat down, we ordered standard menu dishes. The tables surrounding us which had sat well after us all got served before we did. Once our food arrived, they had made several mistakes with our orders. I ordered a standard hamburger with fries, I was served just the meat with the cheese and salad. No bun, no fries. They did eventually bring them, but when the rest of our friends had finished eating. It is also one of the restaurants that push customers to consume more alcohol by continually emptying the wine bottles into glasses which are already full. Why such complaints? Because it is not a cheap restaurant. To be laden with a hefty bill after such poor services and quality is an insult.

We went on Wednesday night for the prime rib special and it was amazing. The cut was generous and cooked perfectly. For this option, we had to make a reservation a day or two in advance and the prime rib was prepared ahead of time and taken out of the oven around 8pm. We also checked out the menu for other items and they have a range of other cuts of steak, sandwiches and appetizers. Prices on the menu were moderate (the prime rib was more expensive) and the service was decent. The atmosphere of the locale was nice as well.

One of the only places serving prime rib, but get ready to pay top dollar. It also serves a huge Porter house steak
