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

Had a very pleasant outdoor dinner at this restaurant located on a pedestrian street in the heart of Miraflores. We all had seafood. The Pescado a lo Macho with a shrimp, calamari, octopus, and scallop sauce was delicious (for about the same price as a foot long Subway sandwich with chips and a drink). Washed iit down with a pitcher... More

Actually went to this restaurant because of the reviews on Trip Advisor and yes they are right. What a great place to have dinner. The staff could not have been nicer. The food was great and so was the Peruvian wine.. Plus it was right around the corner from our hotel Casa Andina.

Friendly staff, quick service. The food was ok, but good value for the price. Total for entree and a beer was 35 sole. I would go back and try some new dishes. Had lots of traditional Peruvian fair on the menu. Everyone would find something to eat here

Real yummy food. Great menu. Tastes fantastic. Personal service. That sums it up. I am not a favourite of the sloppy style American fast food and found this little place near my hotel Courtyard Mariott. It's small, cosy, run by two older guys and their young nephew (just guessing), but most of all, it is GREAT food. I had the... More

This was just a 5 minute walk for our hotel and was recommended by our tour guide. Both locals and tourists were eating here and there is an outside eating area heated by gas burners. A good selection of local dishes served by friendly waiters who will help you choose, the portions are big but try the Ceviche its great

This was a brilliant choice for dinner! It is a warm and cosy restaurant with a terrace outside for dining in warm weather, equipped with outdoor gas heaters. The Ceviche was brilliantly marinated and came with a very generous portion (44 soles), and the Sole covered with sautéed Onions and Tomatoes, served with Rice and Corn was succulent (24 soles)....
