Nice area. Upscale like Miraflores with a lot of business commerce taking place here. I enjoyed the time spent here as there is also quite a few things to do/see/explore.

One of the landmarks of Lima and definitely worth visiting. Any city tour will take you through this area. The entire area is also known after this monument.

Wish I could help but we didn't eat there. We stayed at a B&B and spent the rest of our time sightseeing and eating elsewhere. Can't imagine you can go wrong in Peru though. Everything they serve is delicious.
