This place was our first culinary stop in San Miguel and Ricardo was the first restaurant owner we met upon arriving at Lima, and let me tell you he set the standards high for the rest of the trip! An absolutely lovely place, with delicious food and incredible service. Ricardo speaks French too, which was a plus for my friend... More

Customer service was great, food was flavoursome and got to try the Guinea pig which was actually pretty good! Pisco sour was to die for. I would have given 5 star but the pork was a little dry. But overall a wonderful meal and experience and would recommend , try the meal with the 3 or 4 meats so you... More

We've eaten there twice and definitely plan to return. Both times we ordered the pachamanca with 5 meats - beef, pork, chicken, lamb and cuy (guinea pig). The rich flavors of the perfectly cooked meats were complimented by the habas (lima beans), humitas, camote and potato. The personalized service by the family made the meal a special experience. Hidden away... More

Full disclosure. I am a foodie and I have the gut to prove it. I brought with me four very picky eaters and a friend. By the end of the meal, everyone was extremely happy with the delicious aromas and taste of every bite and sip. It was a wonderful culinary sensation. We tried the Pachamanca Del Inca, among many...

We accidentally gatecrashed Don Ricardos wedding anniversary party, not realising that a private function was going on inside, however we were warmly invited in and offered something to drink. Gianfranco was our waiter and served us delicious pisco cocktails made with native fruits, along with the obligatory pisco sour. The food was next to arrive and I must say, make... More
