I have eaten at this restaurant twice, the first time I had the chefs special which was a seafood and rice dish. Not particularly tasty and everything tasted like salt. The second time I tried the Beef Lasagna. Not sure where they got the recipe, but I couldn't tell if there were actual noodles in this or not. Also the... More

Food was okay, nothing special but in my opinion overpriced. We had a steak and ravioli. The stake was dry, ravioli were good, but I have to mention that the portion was very, very small and 10 ravioli for 25 soles is heavy. Waiter was nice and helpful. You can find a lot better restaurants in Lima for less money.... More

Do your taste buds and stomach a favour and eat here. While in Lima I try to make it to Mama Olla's at least once a day (seriously the food is that good). The menu has a wide selection of seafood, meats and poultry and each of the items that I have eaten has been outstanding. My favourite is the... More

My partner and I had dinner at Mama Olla in November 2016. This is a cozy spot just off one of the main streets in Miraflores. Colourful decor and lots of character. The prices were great, and the food, while not amazing, was flavorful and authentic. Portions are somewhat modest but given the low prices, the sizes are fair. Good... More
