interesting but overrated

Guess I'm the one who has to come here with a non-glowing review (one of the best restaurants ever? really?)
Sure, it's a lovely little place, with a creative, ever-changing menu. They're happy to make things vegan on request.
However, some things were a bit off for me. Maybe it was just my luck, but two separate times I came the servers seemed either righteously stoned or just not that into working. Also arrived once at 8:30 p.m. on a Monday and it was closed, several hours early - apparently because they just wanted to.
I did have some great food there, including a super "Focaccia del Campo," but also had slightly less luck with other plates... a red pepper stuffed with some alright bean stuff, with a side of... alright bean stuffing. At easily the most expensive price per-plate of any restaurant in Lima.
Creative, good-intentioned, but iffy in my experience. I had better dinners at several other places and would have to say that the place is a bit overrated. Still worth checking out for a splurge, but a lot's going to depend on your luck + the night.
creative, organic, nice folks
sometimes meh, closes early, randomly, servers a bit out of it
