The food here is hardly worth the price given the many options availble in Lima. The restaurant sells itself as a classy place with excellent service, but the food will only excite those without a palate. Better service can be found at the nearby McDonalds. Others may express joy with this location, but we found the place to be sub-standard... More

The food was absolutely delicious. One pound steak done to perfection and so tender. Generous portion of jumbo shrimp. Service was great. No complaints other than a bit pricey.

La Tranquera has the total package. Great food, ambiance and service. The meat was cooked right and the service is outstanding. It'll rival any top shelf steak house in the US.

We found this place walking down the avenue to the coast and could not be more happy we found it. Although we stopped for lunch the first day, we actually came back the next night for dinner. This restaurant is super clean and has been around for quite a while. They have a great selection of wines, a wonderful bartender... More

Last year, we had taken a trip to Argentina and the steak was absolutely bursting with flavor. I am from the Midwest where we eat a lot of beef and I can honestly say that beef from Argentina is far better. The menu not only showcases beef but also has seafood and chicken. But why on earth go to a... More

Decided to try La Tranquera after about three years. Last time the quality of the meat was pretty low. However I was pleasantly surprised this time. Service staff were attentive and the meat was excellent. I had the entraña cooked to perfection and my wife the Bife Ancho. Portions were large and delicious. Will be back!

If you have time for only one meal in Lima, whether it's lunch or dinner, you absolutely must eat here. Fantastic service with excellent local dishes. Wide variety of items on the menu (in Spanish and English) priced in both soles and US dollars and you can pay with local currency, US dollars (be sure your bills are in good... More
