Very crowded place, not so much dishes to choose. Each menu( lunch dish) costs 15 soles. Too much for what is really worth. But if you're in a hurry, el fogon is an option. The food is not bad. 7 out of 10 points

This place was cheap, the food average, but my Son and I got extremely sick after eating there. May want to consider some place else to eat

This restaurant was recommended to me by a local from the area, saying it was cheap and good, and so I went and was not disapointed. The menu (around 10-13 soles), comes with chicha (maize juice), and a two-meals course. I went for the classic: a ceviche and a lomo saltado. Being my first ceviche in Peru and South America,...

For lunch, you can get a two-course meal with a chicha morada (non alcoholic maize beverage) for 13 soles. While there are other fixed menu places nearby for 10 and even 8 soles, the quality of the food in El Fogón is astounding for the price. The ceviche (fish) entrée is very good, as is the lomo saltado, the churrasco... More

My friends and I went here twice (and might go again!) It's good and cheap, approx S/.13-15 for two courses and chicha morada. What a steal! It's a great place to try different Peruvian foods with low commitment. I personally enjoy their ceviche and the last menu item... Though I've forgotten the name. We learned quickly that meal times are... More

This place was recommended to us by an employee of the Chocomuseo nearby. We were in a rush to get back for a workshop and she said this place would be fast. She was right! Great Peruvian food from a restaurant stuffed to the brim with locals. Salads are washed with purified water, the meat was great, plantains excellent, the... More

Go early or you won't get a table at this great little lunch place. The first course is a meal in itself and you'll leave the restaurant happy and stuffed to the gills. You can immediately tell if the food is good at any lunch restaurant in Lima by the number of patrons eating there. El Fogon always caters to... More

How am I the first person to write a review of this fabulous eatery? For S./12 (USD $4.8) for almost 10 choices or more of lunch consisting of an entrada, an entree and a chicha morada to drink. The entradas come is a very generous portion. I had a nice piece of causa and the others at my table had... More
