Third time around and last, not coming back. Came for lunch. POS "out of order", so not able to pay with Credit Card. No barbq chicken as grill "undergoing service". Slow service. Very expensive compared to other similar places, like El Hornero or Rincon Gaucho. Finally had to return check twice, as they were charging 3x Bread and "salsas" (which... More

I came here last year so I will not repeat myself on many of the restaurant attributes. All of its charm and service was still present. I want to add that the restaurant had a underground tunnel connecting to the Museo de Osma which I used. If you like steaks and you plan to visit the Museo de Osma afterwards,... More

Good choice if you want a change from Peruvian cooking. Not cheap. In a quiet side street behind the Osma museum (connected by a tunnel). there is a car park (Osma museum) 50 years away with security. A pretty house that has been converted to a smart restaurant with 2 medium sized eating areas and a large double height bar... More

Really liked this place. The service was quite possibly the best in Lima. (Very attentive, without being overbearing). The three lovely salsas were all tasted homemade, rather than the usual you get everywhere and the meat really tasty and tender. We visited twice, both early evening so not necessary to book a table. Tucked away in a nice house building... More

Great place for meat in a beautiful old house. It´s new location is by the Museo Pedro de Osma in Callao with plenty of parking. We had ribeye, salmon, chicken and lomo saltado and all of them were extraordinary. Very nice service. Would definitely go back.
