First, there are purity and portion laws regarding beef, specifically burgers that make the expectations higher, and even the fast food places don't disappoint. The food here is good, pricey for burgers think gourmet burgers rather than BK. with gourmet buns.

Nice burgers. Not so good fries and onion rings. Waitress was friendly but not professional. Music was too loud, had to ask them to turn it down.

We loved the cosy relaxed atmosphere of this place. We got here before the lunch rush and had a very relaxed meal. Burgers are a good size and there are a variety of unique combinations. Fries were good and the Pisco Sours were lovely! Can recommend the Blue burger and the Kiterunner was also excellent. Slightly on the expensive side... More

I had read reviews of this place while looking for lunch options in Barranco; as one reviewer commented that they were a bit expensive I opted for another choice. Walking back to where I had been staying for the week I noticed a sign in front of Twist for a s/. 15 menú and decided to give it a try... More

I went here after a friend's recommendation and wasn't disappointed at all. I plumped for the alpaca burger which was lean, juicy and tasty. The garnishes and trimmings were ample and there were 3 veggie options too. The fries were fantastic. The owner, Jimmy, said they were made from peruvian potatoes cut on the premises, rather than bought in frozen... More

Probably not worth the hype and prices. It's fine if you are craving a burger but nothing to get excited about and the prices aren't justified

I have had burgers all around this world and Twists burgers rank among the best. The burger was very good as well as the choice onion rings. I would recommend anyone wanting a good burger in South America Twists will not disappoint.

Restaurant is cool and open without being crowded. Service was friendly and fast and the food... Oh the food! Burgers are big and tasty and cooked to perfection. Worth the stop when you are in this truly charming city.
