Quaint and romantic. The best steak I have had in south America (even better than in Argentina). The staff went out of their way to make it a magical evening for us after 2 weeks of roughing it. Don't miss it!

Great food and fantastic service! We had a large family group with 3 children and we all enjoyed the atmosphere, food and drinks. So fun to enjoy dinner near the Plaza de Armas,

It's a little tricky to find this place, because the staircase to enter is inconspicuously next door to a convenience store. Once you go up the stairs, you feel like you are in an old friend's study or library. The vibe is very relaxed. The food was really good, and the waitstaff were friendly and attentive.

I had dinner here with my wife for 3 nights in here. The internal decoration is vey classic. The services from the waitress are excellent and always with smile, though they spoke very little english. The steak was very good. On the last night, they offered us a free dish.

Lovely surprise to find such a delightful restaurant in Trujillo after dining at the third rated restaurant the previous evening. It definitely deserves its first rating. The ambience was lovely, the food good, the wine excellent, and the service outstanding from Bella.

Our personal favourite restaurant in Trujillo! Romantic balcony tables, beautiful old wares, lovely cosy atmosphere and fantastic service from the moment you pull up outside! The food is a wonderful European/Peruvian blend. The ceviche de lomo is a MUST!

Service is delightful, warm and welcoming. Food is excellent. Loved both mains in particular. Beef wellington Peru style. Covered in potato rather than pasty. This is quite a filling dish. Beef in cheese and white wine sauce was delicious, Nice wine list. The building is really a pleasant place to sit. If warm enough do sit on the balcony. There... More

El Celler de Cler is a place I wanted to go during my whole 2 years living in Trujillo and I finally went twice before moving back to the US; once for food and once for drinks. Their balcony outside is great for drinks but definitely just for two! Its pretty narrow. But they have plenty of space inside as... More

This restaurant served the best Lomo i've ever had. We stept in by accident and ordered the Lomo parmesan. It was lovely. The waitress was very friendly and helped us with the menu.
