Had lunch here after arriving in Lima. Our waiter, Marlon, was very helpful and provided us with a map of the city and suggestions of where to visit. I had the grilled chicken and fries and really enjoyed the meal

I really enjoyed the nice breakfast. It arrived very quick after ordering. The location is nice as it is along a brick paved courtyard area connecting two busy streets. The server was kind and attentive. LOVED the coffee!

Hi there, I was unaware that this is also a B&B? As far as I know it is just a restaurant but I could be wrong... we stumbled on this little gem as we were just walking about the Miraflores area. However, I would... More
