Not quite sure why this restaurant is so highly recommended. Although the service was excellent, the ribs I had were fatty, chewy and tough. My wife enjoyed her trout for the most part, but overall neither of us would recommend it.

Make yourself a favor and don't come. I asked for al pesto pasta and 30 minutes later they brought a green pasta soup. I asked to take it away and they refused saying they will fix it. Later they brought a green pasta that tasted horrible. They use monosodium glutamate as principal ingredient of all their food. The price is... More

.Good range of dishes, very good service, wide range of choices from the specials menu. Good sized portions good service and good food. This place is not over-hyped in the guide books and is an interesting experience to boot. Sadly the beer, whilst not expensive is a tad overpriced. Very popular and should you have to queue to be seated... More

Rather to our surprise – given its position on a busy seafront – this was one of the best restaurants we found in Northern Peru. The seafood was extravagant in both quantity and quality and the breezy veranda overlooking the Pacific a perfect place to linger well into the afternoon.

I hoped to eat some good traditional peruvian food, but I was totally disappointed. Low quality, not recommended.

This is a very friendly restaurant that has been going for decades and doing it right, without changing. The food is good, the prices are fair and the staff are friendly.

Everywhere in Cajamarca, I received gracious service. This was no exception. The extensive menu included cuy (guinea pig), conejo (rabbit) dishes as well as the beef, chicken, and fish offerings. The vegetable puree soup was delicious. My baked rabbit was well prepared, as well as the vegetables I substituted for the traditional rice and potatoes.The fried bananas side plate was... More
