Been there as the review on TripAdvisor are great. Indeed the food was not bad but nothing exceptional. We were first in the restaurant and it was somehow quiet. Then some giant groups arrived and it felt like eating at a cantine. Some Peruvian show...More

The food was ok, but it was the worst service of my entire life! The waiter took our order entirely wrong, the drinks were warm, they were outnumbered compared to the number of costumers!

Even for Peruvian standards, the customer service at this restaurant is SLOW. The appetizer arrived about 35 minutes after we ordered it, the waiter was short and snapped at one of my friends, the entree took even longer after the appetizer. On a positive note,...More

This place caters for big organised trips - there were 3 German groups when we ate there. The show is interesting but food could be better. It's bland and stripped down of spices and original flavours that we tasted in other places in Peru. Go...More

The show is included in the price of the meal. The show starts at 7:30 (verify to make sure this is still true today). We left at 9:00 and it was still going on, but I think it is only scheduled to last for an hour. It was... More
