I must say that here I found the best chocolate cake of Lima. Is incredible and also could give you an entire cake and not only a slice if you call some weeks or days before. It's a bit expensive but you won't regret.

Pasta was well prepared. Pita sandwich was not in pita bread. French fries were cooked from frozen. Service was good. Good enough after a full day of travelling.

Not fancy but totally welcoming, with both armchairs and restaurant tables available. Tapas and salads were great--much better than I had expected for a casual neighborhood place. Half a block from our B&B so went there three evenings in a row!

Despite the cafe look, it has a full menu and they serve breakfast all day. The vegetarian crepes were delicious and my boyfriend is still talking about the pork belly cracklin' sandwich. Highly recommended!

We've been many times at the Barranco restaurant. Every time, we had attentive polite service, delicious and nicely presented food in generous portions. The ambience has been designed beautifully, a mix of the old Barranco and the new, soft music, not noisy, very clean. They...More
