I've been to this restaurant with my friends. I eat lomo saltado and arroz con mariscos and ice cream de lucuma. We drink rich pisco sour. I recommend this restaurant the best one I had in London.

The food was very tasty, the atmosphere welcoming and the waiters were kind and friendly. I would recommend "Causa rellena dish" and "Ceviche", which are the best courses.
