This place caters for big organised trips - there were 3 German groups when we ate there. The show is interesting but food could be better. It's bland and stripped down of spices and original flavours that we tasted in other places in Peru. Go...More

This is a really well organised restaurant and show. The food is a fantastic standard and the show is really enjoyable. The musicians and dancers are mainly university students who rely on the generous tips from the patrons. It is a great show, so please...More

The main attraction of the place is the show which offers a range of typical music and dances from all over Peru and each one is introduced in English and Spanish by a presenter. The food choice is also wide.

We decided to eat here for the entertainment factor because I enjoy seeing cultural dances and costumes. We didn't stay for the whole show but enjoyed the first hour. We had the alpaca with cheesy quinoa and both enjoyed it. It was worth the visit.

Ate dinner here tonight and enjoyed it. I had the grilled trout, which was nice, along with some steamed veggies. The show is nice to watch and I think families with kids would especially enjoy the show (although none were in attendance tonight).

The show is included in the price of the meal. The show starts at 7:30 (verify to make sure this is still true today). We left at 9:00 and it was still going on, but I think it is only scheduled to last for an hour. It was... More
