Visited for lunch. We arrived early and had no problem finding a table. The restaurant was full within the hour so reservations are a good idea. Service and food were excellent. Prices are reasonable considering the quality.

One of the best restaurants in Trujillo mixing a broad variety of local and international dishes. You should not miss: "tiradito 2 colores", "pulpo a la parrilla", "tacu tacu con cabrito" and "pato guisado". Great service

Squalos is one of the top places to eat in Trujillo. Big restaurant, good facilities, clean, with a wide menu. Seafood is their speciality, but they also have good criollo dishes. Ordered a fish with seafood sauce, amazing (Pesacado a lo macho). The ceviche and...More
