This lovely restaurant easily catered for my gluten and lactose intolerances. The food was tasty and the glass of maracuya juice was HUGE! Lovely hot tea in a really nice cup!! 37 soles in total.

Good breakfast, pleasant place to sit with a afternoon beer and watch the world go by, in front of the action at night. Service a bit slow, but who cares?

The french fries were excellent. Pisco sour with whipped to a wonder froth. Two friends loved the mango and chicken sandwich. And another raved about the taco. Note the service is slow, as it was many places.More
