We had a late lunch after arriving from Cusco. The restaurant was recommended by our driver as a good local hangout. The atmosphere was excellent and the food even better! Big portions and some of the best flavors of our trip.

Oh my god is all I can say. Every item that I tried is delicious, mind blowing and mouth watering. This is the best Peruvian food I have had so far in 3 weeks. If you are in Lima, it will be a sin if you miss this place.

We had an evening meal here with our friend and her children. It was excellent and a great place to take the children. The food was very good and yet the children had a meal they could enjoy. The special of the night was a vegetarian dish made of spinach with asparagus, carrots and other vegetables with a tomato sauce.... More

I found this place had good reviews and walked to it from my hotel. On a Saturday not having reservations for her lunch I had to sit in the bar.

We have been to Panchita with the extended family 3 or 4 times for sunday lunch. The place is always packed so we always arrive early. The menu is traditional Peruvian food. The service is slow and uneven. There are dishes to take 45 minutes to prepare. One of the waiters drop hot chicken fat from a dish on her... More
