Visited for lunch. We arrived early and had no problem finding a table. The restaurant was full within the hour so reservations are a good idea. Service and food were excellent. Prices are reasonable considering the quality.

We went here for lunch, and were taken aback by the prices. My husband had tortilla with prawns (which is essentially an egg pancake) and I had avocado "salad" with prawns. I was disappointed that the avocado was firm and without much taste, as the...More

We ate at Squalos on the last night of our Trujillo trip thanks to trip advisor and LOVED the food and their staff. Restaurant is gorgeous and the staff is so friendly with our limited (yet trying hard) English speaking waiter explaining the dishes and...More

I'm always worried when the menu for a restaurant is more than 3 pages, and this was like a book. It's hard to believe that they have fresh ingredients every day. Even though the food is good, for the price of everything, you definitely expect...More

One of the best restaurants in Trujillo mixing a broad variety of local and international dishes. You should not miss: "tiradito 2 colores", "pulpo a la parrilla", "tacu tacu con cabrito" and "pato guisado". Great service

Order the sudado. It's amazing. Based on the opinion of one in our party I would advise against the pasta Alfredo. Very pretty restaurant with delicious food. Check it out.

The food was fair at best. We were all very causious about what we are and still got sick. The menu is a beating to understand and the staff speaks zero English. Great atmosphere.

Pretty good quality food. Unfortunately for such level of restaurant, the lack of Air Conditiong is glaring. It's unforgivable. Gets toasty inside on sunny days. Seafood is pretty good. Nothing to rave home about. Attention is very good.

Great food in a beautiful colonial style building. It was a place full of locals so it wasn't typical touristy food. I'd definitely return and have recommended it to friends of mine visiting Trujillo.
