This small restaurant was just around the corner. We were greeted by a young man. English was fine. He understood enough to take our order. Lots of variety, but decided to try a pizza

This little restaurant was right around the corner from our hotel. We went in and were greeted by a young man. English was ok. He understood enough to take our order. Lots of selection but we decided to try a pizza. My husband had the Hawaiian and I had the mushroom. Both were personal pizzas and they were very good.... More

We thought we would wing it and give this little place a try. Bad call! The waiter was hovering over us to order. After we order, the 4 of us each received our drinks at a different time. The pina colada could not even be drank. The food was mostly tasteless. 1 meal was barely touched - quesadilla. We didn't... More

Cheap and big portions. Food tasted pretty good to be honest. It's not posh place to be but if you like the food and don't mind local environment you gonna like it .

Don't be fooled by the cheapish extensive set menu the food was the worst we have had in Peru. It was New Year's Day so potentially fresh food was hard to come by but the burrito was nearly inedible with a dry wrap, seriously old beans and soggy lettuce. The service was also incredibly slow. With so much fantastic food... More

This place is cheap but not worth it! The food was salty and tasted awful. I ordered OJ and they gave me something completely different. DO NOT ORDER SPAGHETTI AL PESTO! My sister and I took a bit of the spaghetti and instantly spit it back out, it was just awful.

It is a very small restaurant/cafe but with a good food. We ordered asparagus soup and lasagna. It was very good. The problem is that it takes long.

We were extremly hungry and we were late as all the restaurants close at 10 pm so we jumped into the first one for some quick bite. First impression was that was dirty inside but we didnt have time to change and we tought maybe its just interior and food could be delicious. They offered us with two menu options... More

This place was cheap and clean. The food was what I have come to expect in Peruvian fare. It was quite plain, but palatable. Nothing special. Service was fine.

With a name like Tabasco, and Mexican food on the menu, but you'd be wrong. I ordered an enchilada and some nachos. The chips were fluffy flour things and the guacamole was chopped up avocado, which was good, but no cheese, no salsa. The enchilada was beige thick soupy stuff with some pieces of chicken floating in it - nothing... More
