I have used this restaurant over the past few years and while its not a 5 star classic it is very nice. Great and friendly staff, the Piscos are excellent and the Cerviches are classic and excellent. Main dishes are classic Peruvian and well presented. The place has been renovated recently and Im sure the inner sector is non smoking now. I dont smoke but there were certainly no smokers present the last few visits. The menu is extensive but not not overwhelming and the quality of the food and presentation is very good. Its relaxing, its airy enough and plenty of space.

No English menu in both parts of the old establishment (there is new Mochica on the sea front, which they say is more posh). No English speaking waiter. Was rather disappointed by the interior - very basic. Food was OK - but nothing special, I have had better in not-so-popular restaurants in the town - AND only instant coffee! Dessert did not impress at all. Vine selection decent, but by the glass - limited to just one...

Execellent Peruvian food with very friendly service. Very simple atmosphere but absolutely worthwhile to visit.

After reading the reviews, I was looking forward to visiting. I even convinced my colleagues that it was worth a shot, even though we'd had Peruvian the night before at Quepay.

As we entered, there was the faint aroma of cigarette smoke, so we asked for the non-smoking section, only to be told it doesn't have one. 3 of the 4 in our group are highly intolerant of cigarette smoke, so we left. A big shame, as it otherwise seemed like it could be pretty good - the decor was cool.
