Tasty Peruvian food next to a Pre-inca Pyramit at Huaca Pucllana Restaurant Mar 29, 2010
Huaca Pucllana restaurant is located next to the Huaca Pucllana Archaelogical Complex, which is a Pre-Inca Pyramid. This fact makes its location just great!

The building is an old big house, which should have belonged to a wealthy family. It has different rooms. The bar and dining room inside are beautifully decorated. The high ceilings and low lights give it a special touch. They also have a dining area and bar at the terrace. It's also very well decorated, but the view is just breathtaking. Imagine enjoying your meal, watching a Pre Inca pyramid and feeling the breeze. I have been here for lunch and dinner and recommend you to go at night, when you can get an amazing view of the pyramid beautifully illuminated. I also like the fact that they are open daily and serve dinner on Sundays, not many restaurants do so.

Regarding the food. It's Peruvian cuisine, but more orientated to tourists, who want to taste the Peruvian food, but don't want to take many risks. Besides Peruvian food, they also serve some international dishes. If you want to try the guinea pig, but don't feel to adventurous. This will be one of the best choices where you could taste it for first time. All their dishes are very good, but one of the best is the "Cabrito" baby goad, really tender! Their desserts are soooo good. If you are a fan of the chocolate, you can't miss the vulcano. I had the mango one and was really good!!! And also have a good wine selection. Before having lunch or dinner, ask for a drink with pisco. The bartender fixes good pisco sours.

Yes, this place isn't cheap - specially for Peruvian standards, but if you have money and want to treat yourself, this place is a good choice! Also the portions have a good size. And do not forget the wonderful view of the pyramid with the lights :)

Enjoying piscos and an awesome view at Huaca Pucllana May 06, 2009
Huaca Pucllana is better known as a great and fancy restaurant. But they also have a nice bar.

Same as the restaurant the atmosphere in the bar area is elegant and so nice. From the window you can enjoy a wonderful view from the Pre Inca Pyramid. They have a wide variety of liquors and you can see how many bottles they have storaged there.

All wooden and quiet. This spot is perfect to enjoy a couple of drinks, while you can have a nice conversation. They also offer some food there, besides the complimentary snacks.

My recommendation is to get a pisco sour or other pisco cocktail. You can see while the barman is fixing them.

This restaurant is fancy and so elegant. So if you want to go there without spending much money, having a drink is the perfect choice. If you have a budget, you might not be able to drink much, but you´ll be able to say you went to that fancy place ;)
