With time and at this speed, Tanta will become another peruvian fast food chain...but with high prices. For example today I got "Suprema Maryland" which is breaded chicken breast with yellow fried potatoes, corn with cream, fried egg and fried bananas (yes I had fat...More

Always full of tourists and locals. Dishes look great, taste great. Excellent service. Informal atmosphere. Nice safe location. Take-out available. Try their crab meat tapas and their croquettes.

I ate here for dinner one night. We ordered several of the appetizers and pisco sours. Everything was delicious, especially the pisco sour. The view of the ocean was incredible, too.

Menu is mostly local food but there's some more "international" things. It's good and portions are big. Compared to Peruvian standards it's not cheap but very affordable for western tourists.

Nicely located in the San Isidro district of Lima. A very good restaurant serving typical Peruvian dishes and delicious pastries. Super service with pleasant atmosphere. Very friendly staff and good prices. Relax and enjoy.

The lomo saltado was delicious! It was the gold standard for the rest of the trip! Casual local dining near the Novetel Lima where we stayed. Would definitely recommend!

Hi, I agree with the receip from Paobell. Just keep in mind that in the US you need to look for lime instead of lemon. Our Peruvian Lime is small and has a lot of acid. Personally I prefer lower sugar syrup, but that... More
