Truly a hole in the wall! We walked past it twice! There is a little fish market type store front, it's barely bigger than a phone booth. Once I spotted the sign, buried under the ivy, we poked in and asked if there was a restaurant. Sure enough, she showed us to a hole in the floor, where there was a skinny little staircase. Down the steps we went. Watch your head! There's 4 tables down there. Very simple menu on the wall. Don't ask for translation, no one speaks English. We all had a fun time trying to figure out what to order. In the end, we took the gentleman's suggestions. We ordered cerviche for starters. That was delicious! Huge amount of shrimp and fish. Then dinner entrees came. We really had no idea what we had ordered. One dish was shrimp with oil and garlic. On the menu, it was camaronnes. I guess we now know that is shrimp. The other dish was a crab augratin. Lots of crab in it. It came to the table incredibly hot. The dish had gone into a broiler, no doubt. It was so hot it was difficult to eat. No hurrying. It was delicious. I think on the menu, it was Pasteljaiba. Accompanying dinner was bread and butter. Add in a bottle of sparkling water, one beer and a very generous shot of Pisco. The owner told us that if we needed another beer, just get one out of the fridge! The total was about 37000 pesos. We left 40000, and it's about $60US. What an experience! It was truly like having dinner at someone's home, in the basement. Lol. Very quirky and fun. No hoity-toity here.
