Tanta restaurants are high quality, dependable, and excellent. There's a great range of food on the menu, ranging from ceviche to paella to "Grandma's beef stew". Local craft beers as well as a selection of good house wines. Reasonably priced, reasonably priced, and dependably good.

My family and I stayed in Lima for 8 days this last October. We had rented a lovely Air BNB in the San Isidro neighborhood. We spent our days walking all over and only saw a fraction of this amazing and massive city. On our last night in Lima we had spent the day walking (probably did 10-15 miles) we... More

My wife and I arrived in Lima in the evening, fresh from a meal at Acurio's La Mar in Santiago Chile to the pleasure of a casual style authentic Peruvian menu at Acurio's small restaurant near our hotel in SAN Isidro. The ambiance is active but relaxing, the service prompt and friendly and the menu representative of a wide variety... More

This restaurant was close to my hotel. Very cordial waiter. I ordered the typical Aji the Gallina. Excellent taste.

Went for dinner with family and friends. We were staying at Novotel and the restaurant is one block walking distance from the hotel. Good value for money and choice of food is great. They ran out of fish that evening Even though we went at 7 pm. I guess they had too many visitors from the APEC summit. The cilantro... More

Tanta is a peruvian chain restaurant in Lima. This is my preferred location. Whilst it is in the less tourist populated area of Lima ( San Isidro is the Financial business area of Lima), i find the ambiance to be better here, with more attentive staff and higher standards than the Lacomar outlet ( based in the more busy and...

The restaurant is quite good, so is the food, considering its category, it is a simple place, with tables without tablecloth and paper napkins. So if you have the right expectations, is a good place to visit.

We ate dinner there 2 days in a row. The food is very good. The service was great both nights. The waiters all speak English and all our questions were always answered. The suggestions that they had for us, were just great, for our first visit to Peru. The green tamales were outstanding. The deserts were AMAZING.

Thank l0v32trav3l
