I discovered La Carreta last night. Beautiful place with seating inside and outside. Amazing garden with the famous 1938 carreta. Food was delicious , carpaccio de atun, steak and salad. French wine red from 2009. Service is impeccable. Great. I will be back !

Famous restaurant for different options with meat. I suggest Lechon because it is really great. If you want another kind of meat is ok but my humble opinion Lechon is another level.

I love the setting of this restaurant, wine locker, the veg table and they have a decent space too for a large group. Not a lot of veg select though but the beef was very nice and tender.

We bumped into this restaurant by accident since the prior restaurant that we had in mind was closed. Let me say that we were not at all disappointed. We had a lovely gentleman named Arturo and Rosario that were very attentive and informative on our menu selections. We ended our Peru trip with a nice elegant and delicious dinner that... More

I went for lunch. The limonade was extremely sweet. I ordered asado for main course and it was so salty. I couldn't finish. They didn't apologize for anything; therefore, the service was poor without mention the price is expensive for a poor service. Lima has many good restaurant for have of price and better service. I don't recommend this restaurant.

This a royal and grand experience in fine restaurants in the central financial area of Peru, downtown San Isidro. The bar before the meal sports an impressive accomodation of comfort and classic Peruivan Style. The salad bar is great, and the private dining area underneath the main restaurant is fit for any great occasion of 25 or 30 people with... More

Fantastic meat quality and cooking, great Pisco Sour and very nice colonial atmosphere. Only bad aspect is that I called to make a reservation a couple of hours before lunch time, they confirmed it but upon arrival, they told me that they had no reservation for us, no excuses either, we had to take our lunch at the bar... :(

Be very careful here, this restaurant is going down hill on a slippery slope. As the owner of 3 hotels with bars/restaurants and 2 Irish bar/ restaurants I don't ever comment because I really feel disappointed when I get bad reviews and ratings. Anyway things here started out badly, we walked in and it was empty, no hostess and no... More
