“Excellent”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Excellent choice, two blocks away from main plaza on a second floor. You prefer a table in the balcony looking at the bizarre driving of peruveans. Excellent food, the chef is very good. Service very good too.

“A lot of potential, poorly realised”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

This is a beautiful place. In fact it's a potentially gorgeous place. It's a really lovely building with one of the very few balconies still left in town, which is a beautiful place to look out of. The thing is, they are aware of this, and by god have they taken advantage of the fact (and also the fact that there are no decent old bars in the centre of town, public drinking being illegal [!] around the Plaza de Armas). The wines are HEINOUSLY overpriced, like 85 soles and up for bargain basement rubbish. The food...well we didn't dare try the food as it was also pretty heinous. It's more expensive than the standfast best restaurant in Peru - which I can't name due to tripadvisor policy, but it's in Lima and has an ancient pyramid - and has a truly bizarre musical taste (think Mariachi band combined with a mezzo soprano). It's such a shame. The place was nearly empty and of those that were there, all except one couple were tourists. The service was good, and they provide free garlic croutons and peanuts with the cocktails (18 soles for Long Island Iced Teas and Piña Coladas, so fairly reasonable). Sort this place out. It could be a legendary Trujillo spot.

“A must in downtown Trujillo”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

This might be the only restaurant in downtown Trujillo with a balcony. Starting from that fact, this is a winner. Cocktails are just delicious and food is well above average. My favorite spot in Trujillo, so far.
