“Consistently very good”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Always great food while the crispy Thai fish was the definite winner at out table. I try to visit this place every time I'm in Lima.

“Unpolite staff, silly no-menu system”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Went with some friends, the waiter refused to bring a menu (la carte) saying they don't do menus. He pointed to the blackboard which had some dishes listed but no prices. Whoever there thought not defining prices would make them cool...is not aware of consumers rights. Indiferent waiters & bar staff. Even the decor & lighting was boring: no view , no terrace. Far better restaurants are: Costa Verde, Rosa Nautica, Mangos, La tratoria, Osaka, Astrid & Gaston.

“Piscos a bit small!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

I was last in Rafael 5 years ago and the quality of the food remains as good as it was then - good to see that rafael is still in the kitchen making sure things run smoothly - the flowers in the loos were spectacular touch!!

“Good food, beautiful people, service can do better”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Party of ~15 on a busy Wednesday night. This Lima spot was busy with beautiful people in keeping with the food. I had entrées of ceviche and a main of yellow fin tuna. Service wasn't always attentive though this was a very busy night. Regardless, I'd recommend.
