We tried the beef brain and octopus as appertizers and it was excellent. The main course we chose the baby goat and it was surprising good. Good service

The food here is quite tasty...try the fried yucca and the anticuchos...both top notch in my book. Dinner time is a busy, lively affair at this restaurant, which we found to be really fun. The warm decor also adds to the ambiance. Service was quite good considering the full house...I would happily eat here again.

There were good parts to tonight's dinner. I enjoyed my swordfish steak - hard to find on the menu at home. My dinner companion enjoyed her ribs. But this was a restaurant where we were ready to eat skewers of beef, beef heart, or some other meat. But do you think this was easy to find on the menu, that... More

We had heard that this place is very popular so we called ahead for reservations for the 4 of us only to be told that they don't take reservations. So we planned to get there right when it opens at 12:30 pm and I was surprised to be asked whether or not we had a reservation! But anyhow we did... More

Nice place, easy parking, and most of all, it is one of the best places to eat the already famous peruvian typical food and drinks, such as the Pisco Sour (the real and only). If you come to Lima and you are a gourmet you cannot miss this restaurant.

Octopus Anticucho was SALTY Steak was SALTY Scalloped Potatoes... you guessed it! SALTY! They said the Sancochado would take 30 minutes... it took ONE HOUR and the beef was so full of fat it made me sick. I'd expect these at a cheap restaurant, but one that is owned by famous Chef... hummm

Recently I went to Lima and visit Central, Maido, Astrid y Gastón, Oso, etc. and of course Panchita. Have to say this was the best restaurant of all the aforementioned. It is honest, without pretensions but with great taste, specialised on the true Peruvian cuisine. I did not have to make reservation; a plus, restaurant was full and I had... More

We went there with a party of 20 for a pre-wedding dinner. The food was very good and the service was excellent which is not easy in a party of 20. The atmosphere was very nice.
