Huaca Pucllana Review

You feel like a part of history at this beautiful restaurant, which faces the ruins of a 1,500-year-old pyramid. Rough-hewn columns hold up the dining room's soaring ceiling, but the best tables are outside, with a view of the huaca, which is spectacularly lit at night. A 20-minute, partial tour of those ruins is available to restaurant customers from 7:30 to 10:30, except on Tuesday. The novo andino cuisine served here improves on old recipes, such as pastel de choclo (a corn and beef casserole) and chupe de corvina (a creamy sea bass soup). It is one of the few places you can try paiche, an Amazon fish whose meat resembles swordfish, and the cabrito al horno (roasted kid) is simply a work of art.
