I could not recommend a place for tourists to go more than La Bistecca. It's all you can eat, made to order food. A unique combination that essentially allows you to try a variety of Peruvian dishes in one sitting. And the food is divine. Extremely well prepared with high quality ingredients. The atmosphere is perfect, properly lit and never too loud. I love coming here as they change the menu up every couple of months.

The only thing that keeps it from a perfect score is that no drinks are included and the meat/cheese table is rather light, it feels tacked on. Also the dessert bar isn't great, you're better off ordering a dessert (which comes with the meal anyway).

But a fantastic place to go for an evening, stay as long as you like and sample the entirety of Peruvian cuisine in one sitting.

We went there with a large party and the service was great. The buffet is large and has many options including typical Peruvian food, pasta, pizza, Chinese, Japanese, salads, side dishes, and desserts. Being a gluten free vegetarian was tricky for me in Peru, but I found some things I could eat at this buffet. The salad bar was fresh and well stocked. My husband enjoyed all the different stations and meat offerings. The one downside was the wait for the sushi to be made. The line for this station was long and wish they had some pre-made sushi ready to grab. The restaurant's atmosphere is nice and well laid out.

Have it all, Chinese, Japanese, BBQ, Criollo, Seafood, Italian etc all for just one price, around $22 dollars, high quality everything, different concept and high quality standards, I personally recommend the pasta, they have several different types and the Mushroom sauce is over the top. You won't be disappointed.

Good ambients, yummy food, a lot of variety. The best you can try all since its a buffet you are not stuck with 1 or 2 dishes. Amazing variety of desserts. The service was a bit slow to my liking. But other than that everthing was very Good.

Great place to try all kinds of food which has been adapted to Peruvian style. Ceviches were all amazing,every single dish. Peruvian sushi was sooooooo good, so does dim sum. Personally, I did not like their pasta, I think it was too dry. Desert was ok, too sweet. The service was excellent and caring. Definitely worth to try !!! Highly recommended :)
