We were a big group, with kids. The attention was pretty good, generous portions, it taste just fine but really too spicy. The cost was 50 soles per person, so the cost-benefit relation is not good. We won't back.

The restaurant has nice decoration and the service was ok. The food is average, the are far better restaurants in the city for peruvian/seafood cuisine for what you have to pay. Definitely I don't recommend this place for seafood.

The food was fine, with good taste, but unfortunately it was really spicy. The prices are affordable and generous portions, so with my wife we order just an entry (great "ají de gallina") and a main dish ("arroz con pato"). It was more than enough!

This place lacks everything except a polite waiter. The food is average at best, expensive, boring atmosphere, overall cheap and dirty look and feel. Would not even eat again for free...

We found this place by chance. You want to know some Spanish. Clean and large restaurant. Great coffee and food. The desserts are out of this world!

This is a huge restaurant and we arrived when they had a function in one room. The chairs are covered with white so it looked a bit like we were gatecrashing a wedding. We at the pollo saltado and ceviche both were excellent. The staff...More

The 4 of us were seated in a large, empty room with a very loud and annoying TV. After multiple requests they turned it down but 20 minutes later turned it back up. The service was a disaster. The food was mediocre. Maybe they were...More
