Octopus Anticucho was SALTY Steak was SALTY Scalloped Potatoes... you guessed it! SALTY! They said the Sancochado would take 30 minutes... it took ONE HOUR and the beef was so full of fat it made me sick. I'd expect these at a cheap restaurant, but one that is owned by famous Chef... hummm

Recently I went to Lima and visit Central, Maido, Astrid y Gastón, Oso, etc. and of course Panchita. Have to say this was the best restaurant of all the aforementioned. It is honest, without pretensions but with great taste, specialised on the true Peruvian cuisine. I did not have to make reservation; a plus, restaurant was full and I had... More

We went there with a party of 20 for a pre-wedding dinner. The food was very good and the service was excellent which is not easy in a party of 20. The atmosphere was very nice.

We visited here on our first day in Lima and spent most of our time looking at everyone else's food. It was different to anything we had seen before. The portions were huge and we didn't eat for the rest of the day. Well worth a visit to try out a variety of traditional dishes.

We only had meats and they were all excellent -- anticuchos as good as we had in all of Peru and we unanimously agreed that the pork roast was the best we had ever tasted!

This is one of my family's favorite restaurants in Lima. It offers all the main classic Peruvian dishes from different regions of Peru, so you are sure of finding something you'll like. It uses top quality ingredients, for a reasonable (but not cheap) price, and the taste is fantastic, very authentic. The different sauces that accompany dishes like anticuchos are... More

Without reservation, 3 families went to this restaurant. The food was really good and combines typical dishes of Peru with risky but successful fusions (inca kola, chicha and pisco was good). We ordered a combination of starters and we're full afterwards. I can't imagine the main dishes, but, looking forward to try again. The environment and attention outstanding; however, finish...
