Chicha is an excellent restaurant. It s a bit more expensive than the restaurants in the square but this is a really nice place to eat and take in the atmosphere. As befits a Gaston Acurio joint, the menu is imaginative and the décor cool...More

Starters were delicious. Main courses average at best. Service was really good too. Lamb was very fatty. Changed to sea bass, good but not as good as La Mar. Wine was overpriced and not much better than box wine.

This restaurant has a relaxing and cozy vibe that draws you in. Service was very good and they spoke English! Our cocktails before dinner ( a Negroni and a Chilina) were really good. The bread service featured three types of housemade breads with herbed butter....More

I chose the erizo (sea urchin) ceviche for starter and the baked suckling pig for main course. I devoured every bit of the erizo but just managed to taste a bit of the pork (which was a pity because it was good) as I was...More
