We found the restaurant after a fair walk from the centre, a taxi would be recommended. The menu is extensive with many styles of food to chose from. The ceviche is excellent, some of the best we had in the country. Very high standard restaurant and definitely worth a visit.

The food here was phenomenal. The cuisine is Peruvian, with additional fare offered. The service was even better. The staff is attentive to your every need. Though we did not have reservations on a Saturday Night, They were more than welcoming.

Well, service was great. The food arrived quickly and the kids enjoyed the salmon and some food from the kids menu. Most people were tourists and looks like everyone had good time. My father and my mother ate great ceviche and for main course my father had the fish Machu Picchu that had too much cheese in it and he... More

Very good peruvian food. Great Cebiche, Tiraditos and Causas. The service is good too. The restaurant offers various dishes aside from the peruvian classics; Steak, Chicken, Seafood and other kinds of meat, the sides are also really good. I recommend the Steak in Mushroom sauce, one of the best I've had in San Jose.

We have visited several Peruvian restaurants in San José and none of them is cheap; neither is Machu Picchu. However, we found the food to be delicious and abundant, and they provided excellent service.

This restaurant was very good. A bit on the pricey side, but the food was good. Try the lemonade, my daughter swore it was the best she's had.
