We come here every year and it never fails. Chicken is to die for. This time we caught some mahi mahi and brought it to billy who turned it into a delightful ceviche. Will go back many times.

The chicken was so roasted to perfection and the service was exceptional. Great value for money. The hot sauce does sneak up on you so careful!

Of course, the chicken and fish tacos absolutely live up to all the excellent reviews. The special hot sauce is worth bringing back.
I will miss Oscar's exceptional Pisco sour and my husband wishes he could have more of the amazing passion fruit cheesecake, homemade by Oscar's sister.
Such a welcoming place with a genuinely nice, attentive and interesting owner.

We went there because it looks very inviting. Once you get to know, Oscar, his crew and the delicious food they serve, it is hard Rock go somewhere else. We have been there 4 times in one week, it was always a pleasure. Our favourite main dish: Lomo Saltado!!! But everything we ordered was delicious! Go there and you will agree!

We ate lunch here late in our trip and I wish I had found this place sooner. Don't let Chicken in the name fool you. They have excellent fish dishes too. And the food presentation for some of the dishes ...rivaled what a sit down high end restaurant might provide. The owner takes pride in his place it is very clean, nice, and inviting. The service from him was above the norm. It is a must place to try while in Mal Pais / Santa Teresa. The homemade Passion Fruit Cheesecake was yummy too!!!
