“Presumed by locals to be one of the best in town - just did not impress me”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

No English menu in both parts of the old establishment (there is new Mochica on the sea front, which they say is more posh). No English speaking waiter. Was rather disappointed by the interior - very basic. Food was OK - but nothing special, I have had better in not-so-popular restaurants in the town - AND only instant coffee! Dessert did not impress at all. Vine selection decent, but by the glass - limited to just one...

Execellent Peruvian food with very friendly service. Very simple atmosphere but absolutely worthwhile to visit.

“Only smoking...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

After reading the reviews, I was looking forward to visiting. I even convinced my colleagues that it was worth a shot, even though we'd had Peruvian the night before at Quepay.

As we entered, there was the faint aroma of cigarette smoke, so we asked for the non-smoking section, only to be told it doesn't have one. 3 of the 4 in our group are highly intolerant of cigarette smoke, so we left. A big shame, as it otherwise seemed like it could be pretty good - the decor was cool.
