This restaurant is located in the archeological site of the Huaca Pucllana in the northern part of the Miraflores district. The site is located near to the eight block of Avenida Arequipa, which leads off of Parque Kennedy in the centre of Miraflores. 15 – 20 minutes from Parque Kennedy by foot, or 3 – 4 minutes in taxi (4 – 5 Soles). We recommend that it is best to take a taxi when eating in the evening.

Our Verdict

This restaurant is all about the setting with the food following close behind. If you go you need to make a reservation and ask for a table on the terrace next to the edge overlooking the ruins. Don’t worry if it’s a chilly night as there are firepits all around so it never gets cold.

The setting is just wonderful looking out over the ruins and makes for a great evening out. You can order then get a tour of the ruins!
