Recommendation from our hotel to attend this show. The food was great, however the show was amazing and unique to regional dances with colorful dresses.

We were not sure how cheesy this would be but we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was pretty standard (but good!) Peruvian fare and the entertainment was really good! They had a variety of dances and singing and the costumes were incredible!

Been there as the review on TripAdvisor are great. Indeed the food was not bad but nothing exceptional. We were first in the restaurant and it was somehow quiet. Then some giant groups arrived and it felt like eating at a cantine. Some Peruvian show...More
