Sunday evening around Plaza de Armas not many dining options. This one open till 10PM is a rare offering. Generous portions so beware of how much you order. Main attraction seems to be chicken (based on what fellow diners were ordering) but don't go past...More

I have been visiting this place for over a decade. It is very good. The grace with which Peruvian waiters help the diners is a strong point in all Peruvian restaurants. The food and drinks are good. There's always a set menu for lunch.

Excellent Peruvian food at reasonable prices. The lomo saltados and the chaufa rice were great! The only minus is the basement without fresh air and natural light.

We had lunch at this place, it was honest food, but not remarkable. Portions are huge, even though they insist the main courses are individual. The result was two almost untouched plates and two people felling bad about the waste of food :-(

This restaurant is a good option because the quality of the food is OK (but above average for the area). Is is not incredible, but the dishes were OK. We went for lunch during the week, the restaurant was not full.
