Wow! Great steak. Recommended by a local foodie friend and was extremely happy. The food itself was great -- had steak and some local style deserts. Service was good and the place was not too loud which is very good for dinner. It got busier later in the night. One big plus is the beautiful view of the beach. It... More

The steak is aged to perfection, I had the "baby beef"..whatever that is it is good. If you like mushrooms, they have like 6 different versions as an appetizer. Unfortunately they have no other appetizers - kind of weird. It was very pricey, especially the wine. They have pasta which my wife ate - it was good but had NO... More

We were fortunate to have a waiter who spoke English at El Hornero in the Lima suburb of San Isidro. The friendly and very competent waiter guided us through the menu and served us with professional excellence. We selected Peruvian beef that was so large our waiter suggested we share. We did. We accompanied the beef with sautéed vegetables and... More

A very nicely decorated restaurant in a traditional Spanish style with a beautiful view of the beaches in Costa Verde (from second floor tables only). The steaks were good, the price expensive and the side dishes the regular potatoes or rice, plus salsas (ajies). The service was quick and polite. It is a nice restaurant where you can enjoy a...

Had an excellent dinner with friends - and yes the steak is as good as the reviews. Service was good and the venue cannot fail to impress you. Would I go back - without any hesitation.

Great steakhouse, best beef in Lima. Good service, great location. Parilla doble is for at least 5 persons with pommes frites and the salat.

No two ways about it, if you are a meat lover, this is your place. Actually, you can order anything on the menu and it is superb. I usually have the Salmon which is always cooked to perfection. Now, all this goodness doesn't come cheap. This is a pricey restaurant but totally worth it.

Hands down my favorite steak house in Lima. Nice ambiance, rustic look. Never a wait. Always cooked to order and seasoned well. Huge portions and good salads. All meat is angus now, they don't offer national meat anymore. However the service is 50/50 at best and the desser menu seems a bit dated (lots of gelatin). This is the only... More
