Situated in the centre of Providencia, an area of Santiago which is both commercial and residential. The Peruvian owners opened this restaurant only two years ago and they have been so successful, especially with the young people, due either to their affordable prices or the quality of food, that they have had to build an extension to include the house next door.
I took my family to eat here instead of Los Ranchos. I was craving ceviche and lomo saltado. The place was practically empty, and I waited 2 hrs. for the food, and the food was not good. The price was outstanding. The service was poor. Never again, Never.Go anywhere else than here.
Food great, nice place....Great Peruvian food outside Peru. The lomo saltado was very good. For a real Pisco Sour, we liked it more than the Chilean version. The service was great too and very helpful. We had a good time eating there
Off the beaten path in Providencia, the place has no exterior signs indicating it is a restaurant. Not to fear...the owner told me that his clientele finds the place by word of mouth. I can understand why.
The food was simply mouth-watering. We started with the customary pisco sour (Peruvian style) and were not disappointed. This was followed by a delightful appetizer of "pulpo de olivar" (octopus with olive paste. Never tried octopus before, but after this experience I will !! Our main courses consisted of "Picante de camerones," a wonderfully picante treatment of shrimp in a chili-laced cream sauce, complete with rice, chopped olives, and egg slice. I had the "Lomo Salteado," beef sauteed with onion, tomato, parsley, chilis, and topped with papa frites.
While the exterior is almost hidden, the interior is spotlessly clean. The wait staff is clean and attentive, the decor is light and airy, the airconditioning works wonderfully (a plus on a scorching day), and there is absolutely NO SMOKING!!! What more can one ask?
This restaurant is one of the best I have visited in Chile...after 4 trips. A true gem!!
The owner, Emilio Peschiera opened this place 10 years ago, and will surprise you with one of the best Peruvian
meals in Chile. It is situated in the bohemian Bellavista neighborhood, where you can stroll down its marrow streets ...
