Simple restaurant near the historic center of Lima, a few blocks from Parque de la Reserva (a city park filled with fountains and other water features). Good food and low prices. Open Mon-Sat 8:00am-5:00pm.

Very good food in a modest restaurant - Edit

This restaurant is situated near two parks. The first is a lovely park right across the street with a children's play area. The other park is called Parque de la Reserva and it's a few blocks to the east (on Avenida Arequipa). There are all sorts of fountains and water shows going on (more atmosphere at night because of the lighting). The admission is only 4 soles, and there are 3 water shows nightly, except Monday.

But back to the restaurant.... They have the typical meal of the day, priced at either 7.5 soles or 9.5 soles. Nearly everybody seemed to be ordering the 7.5 (important... buy your ticket at the cash register before sitting down at a table). The day I went, the 7.5 meal had either a soup or a salad, and then 3 choices for the main plate. Although not haute cuisine, I found the food to be very good, especially when taking into account the price paid. You get a lot of food for the money. The 9.5 meal seemed to be more elaborate, and I would have ordered that if one of the choices had been more appealing than the 7.5 menu.

The restaurant is very busy, and you should arrive before 1230pm to get a table right away and have all the food choices available. Single diners share tables here, so don't be shy if all tables are taken.

The owner of this restaurant runs another by the same name closer to the historic center on Jr. Carabaya. This restaurant's neighborhood is more in a business area and it's filled with locals on their lunch hour.

Pros: Location near transport, Food good, Prices good
