Fodor's Expert Review Machu Picchu

$$ West of Downtown Peruvian

A few travel posters and a net holding crab and lobster shells are the only props used to evoke Peru, but no matter: the food is anything but plain, and the seafood is excellent. The pique especial de mariscos (special seafood platter), big enough for two, presents you with shrimp, conch, and squid cooked four ways. The ceviche is quite different from, and better than, that served in the rest of the country. A blazing Peruvian hot sauce served on the side adds zip to any dish, but be careful—apply it by the drop. One more warning: the pisco sours from the bar go down very easily.
