This restaurant has one of the most spectacular settings in the city: inside the monumental ruins of Huaca Pucllana, an ancient religious structure. The interior resembles an old-world estancia, with antler chandeliers, leather club chairs and massive wooden racks of wine. There’s live music and a lovely outdoor terrace. It’s popular with tourists, but the atmosphere and food deliver a real dose of yes-you-are-in-the-heart-of-South-America. Among the standout dishes are the hot crayfish seviche, served in a baked stone with lime and chili sauce, and the tiradito of sole, served with corn and sweet potatoes. For something heartier, consider the spicy hen casserole or the breaded tenderloin with refried black beans and fried bananas. Depending on the season, the menu may include white asparagus, fresh figs or a summer salad of lettuce, hearts of palm and avocado, all of which are grown in the restaurant garden.
