  • Historical fact - this location was a speakeasy during the prohibition era. See if you can find the trap door in the stalls of the men's bathroom!
  • Order the Lomo Saltado!
  • Visit Machu Picchu Restaurant Mondays and Tuesdays and receive a half price appetizers with the purchase of 2 the entrees
  • Try the Lomo Fino al Pacifico, steak with seafood, simply amazing.
  • BEST tamal I ever had in my life. It had peanuts in it!!! Creamy Garlic Ajo Shrimp was my choice & shared Lomo Saltado (though the french fries are frozen out of a bag). Caramel Cookie for dessert!!!
  • Went with a Peruvian friend who deems the place to be quite authentic. The lomo saltado was ok. So was the arroz con pollo n antichurros.Washed it down with the nice n sweet chicha:) Pretty pricey tho
  • Lunches only for 5bucks , amazing!
  • Lamb shank and ceviche were amazing!!
  • BYOB with no corking fee! Great $25 for 2 dinner special on Mondays - ask your server about it. The arroz con pollo is phenomenal.
  • The Papas Rellena and Empandas we had were so delicious! The Pechuga a la parrilla (Grilled Chicken) was covered in the most delicious spices and tasted so delicious as well. I'll definitely be back.
  • Chicken is amazing
  • Steak and avocado with stuff stuff chicken salad.
  • My mouth is still watering over the #ceviche! You MUST
  • Chili-spiced ceviche and steaks cooked a la parrilla are highlights at the Peruvian BYOB. For a switch from the usual beer or wine, bring a bottle of vodka to spike a pitcher of passion fruit juice.
  • Everything's great. .. the yucca a la huancaina is a must and A really nice surprise!
  • The food was great! No corking fee which was awesome so BYOB! The green salsa worth the bread is so good and the flan was amazing. This place was a pleasant surprise.
  • They raised the price of lunch. Still under $10 with tax and tip for lunch and sharing a bread basket. It's a good deal for a surprisingly tasty basic plate of fish, chicken, or steak.
  • Inka cola! Oh yeah...and really great Peruvian food. =)
  • Try the ceviche de pescado!!! Amazing!!!!
  • The big kernel corn with the yellow sauce and chunks of queso = great. Order it.
