Great place to sit outside and enjoy a beer while looking onto The Plaza de Armas . I could of hung out all day, the music ranged from eighties hair bands to sublime and 311.. The prices were right. I highly recommend.

We did not eat at Norton Rats, but we did have a few drinks and felt right at home. This style of bar is rare in Peru, and it reminded us of a neighborhood-style locals bar in the US. The first time we went, we...More
