Awesome food but the worst service. It's a MUST to eat but not to stay. Duck is the speciality and "arroz con pato" is the best you can have.

This restaurant came highly recommended from a Peruvian traveler so we had to try it out! The food was awesome. We obviously had duck (there is one whole page in the menu that features only duck dishes) and we both loved it. The service was very odd. They brought my friend's dish first and then we had to wait about... More

We ate here while visiting archaeological sites in the area. The menu is absolutely huge. I didn't count, but I would guess over 100 dishes to choose from. The staff was great and so was the food. Big portions at a great price.

Horrible service, food and atmosphere. They took over 45 mins to then tell me that my dish I had ordered had gotten mixed up. My dish never came after all that waiting. For my husband's dish, they took over half an hour to cook a fillet of fish (milanesa) and put some rice next to it with, of course, a... More

Besides all of the creative duck dishes and the excellent seafood stews, soups, ceviche and other delicious offerings, the atmosphere, service, preparation and presentation complete the equation. The owners are often around and if you are a returning guest you receive a warm welcome. Thanks to Tayo and Teresa for maintaining such high standards at reasonable prices!

We ate here twice and had duck both times, each time in different incarnations. This seems to be the only well-frequented restaurant in Lambayeque, at least by tourists. The food is fine if unremarkable and the portions are generous.

If you go to Lambayeque to visit the pyramids and the Sipan museum, a visit to this restaurant will complete your impressions of the region. They are offering many delicious variants of dishes with duck. One of these is of course the famouse regional "arroz con Pato a la Chiclayana" - rice with duck as the women in Chiclayo are... More

It's a big restaurant, designed to cope with large groups, staff is friendly and food is good enough.

They don't have a delivery service but they do take care of you if you go and ask for the food to go. Went there to pick up lunch for my grandmother's birthday and they compliment us with some "chicha" and gave my little cousins something to play with while we waited.
