We enjoyed a great lunch outside on the plaza. We went to Tanta because I wanted to try the grilled beef hearts and ceviche. Both were an adventure and very tasty!

Great food and service. Something delicious on the menu for everyone in the family from a five year old to her grandparents. Tamale and grilled fish especially good

This restaurant had a nice casual atmosphere, and seemed to be a favorite among the locals. Although we were English speaking tourists, the staff were very helpful in ordering. The drink menu rocked. I recommend the Chicana (spelling?) that has the ginger and cardamon. My order of Peruvian Paella was delicious! Our guide recommended this restaurant and he did not... More

We chose Tanta on a night when we had 8 people together, all different styles of eaters and Tanta was perfect for us. Our group had vegetarians, non-fish eaters, and small appetites eaters so we were able to find something for everyone with authentic flavors and high quality food. Cocktails, anticuchos and beef stir fry were excellent.

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. The drink I ordered which was a mix of papaya and pineapple was to die for, really good. It all came down to usd 13, for quite a good meal. The restaurant is really nice although a little bit noisy. Service... More

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
