Went with friends to try the Cuy Chactado. The food was good but the service was pretty slow. The waitress passed few times without even noticing us.

Recommended this place by a walking tour guide, and it looked so promising, packed full of locals, and really bustling. We ordered a wine, a juice, a salad and a (somewhat of a mystery) lamb main. (The menu is only in Spanish and the staff...More

We went 2 couples & all 4 meals were subpar to say the least. For starters we had the fried cheese, which was good, however once the main courses started arriving they were all basically tasteless and the meat over cooked. Perhaps this is something...More

Food served here is more expaensive comparing to normal picnterias but you pay for much better quality of your meals. Chancho which I ate here was the best I had in all Sud Amerika. Really, really tasty food. It's worth spending few soles more for...More

Friends in Lima said come here so we did. Had the rocoto relleno, pastel papa and chicha guiñapo. All were good, there was some live entertainment when we were there for lunch.

Loved this place so much it deserved a second visit. It was packed to the rafters with friendly local people both times, all enjoying customary meals and drinks. Capacity appears to be 130 from the signage, but I lost count of the number of sittings....More

This restaurant made a clear choice of quantity over quality. Even tough the restaurant was full of Peruvians, i wasn't embraced with the food.
