Visited for dinner, felt like I was in an English country cottage rather than a South African fishing village. It was very nice but felt out of place. Service was formal if not friendly, menu was very nice, I had the curry and thought it was tasty enough. I liked the restaurant and the food but there was something quite... More

After reading great reviews, we expected to taste some great Peruvian food. We ordered three small dishes, as we were not that hungry. Two starters (gnocchi and something else, I don't remember now) were just ok, but nothing special for the price. The waiters asked if everything was ok with the food after we'd finished it. The last starter was... More

While visiting Peru, our friends who live there took us to this place. The experience was perfect. Even though we were a big group (about 10 people), service was excellent, food on time and good value for our price.

So good that in a 4 night stay we went twice. Food is superb and the service excellent. Not easy to find as it is very low key from the outside

I have dined here 3 times and each time it has been a great evening. The atmosphere is lovely, the waiters are friendly, especially Joad who was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list! The bread basket they give you to start with is amazing - the best bread in Peru. All the dishes we tried were fabulous... More

Just enjoyed a lovely evening - tapas, drinks and good company! The service was exceptional and even though they were booked out they still managed to make us feel very welcome.

We looked up nearby restaurants on the iphone and nearly walked past this one. It was just 2 blocks from our Hotel, the Radisson in Miraflores, but there is no sign out front, just a guy in a suit. We walked right past him then turned around, certain that this was where it showed on the map. Sure enough, when... More

I booked wrongly for 8 instead of 9; however, when I arrived, they could fix the problem quickly. The food was great every single dish that we ordered was outstanding with the exception of the spagethis that I expected more. The desserts were below expectations and must focus on that if they want to offer a very complete experience. The... More

Beautiful food, impeccable service without being pretentious, worth every single dollar . I absolutely love the way food was presented, every single dish had lots textures and flavours, bread was to die for.

The place serves good food in a buzzy atmosphere. Enjoyed all the dishes (apps better than mains as in many places) although the sardegnian gnocchi's broth was too salty. The seafood incorporated in the dishes was awesome (thinking mainly of an egg tortilla topped with several large pieces of fairly luscious uni).
