It's a small place (book in advance) located in the popular area of paquis which offers a broad range of exquisite peruvian delicacies. Excellent to eat before going out. I had a ceviche which was amazing and the pisco sour made my night. Definitely recommendable.

The name didn't remind me Peru, but when I entered this cozy restaurant I wanted to taste everything. The food is very good. The owner is very nice and very helpful describing the ingredients of each dish.
