Pozo Santo review 1 Users say 1/5 Rate it

While all the rage seems to be Peruvian-Asian fusion food, chef Rafael Rivera Danila has struck out along the path of Peruvian fused with Mediterranean, an idea whose time was probably long overdue. Danila turns out inspired combinations like lasagna filled with one of our favourite Peruvian dishes, ají de gallina, and one of the best causas we've ever had - a room temperature mashed-potato dish topped with seafood, paired not only with its perfectly cooked prawns atop, but with deliciously juicy breaded fish gougeres on the side.

In addition, the restaurant has one of the most handsome spaces in the city, beautifully decked out in a mix of Peruvian artifacts and handicrafts set against expanses of neat brick, panes of glass, and a waiting lounge that doubles as a small garden. Service is beyond reproach. While expensive, Pozo Santo is not outrageously priced, and the food is well worth it.

Friends, I think I spent in this restaurant more time than other tourists here. We decided to celebrate our wedding at this place. To say the truth we were really charmed by the ambiance and design at the first time. That's true. The place has charm. BUT the service is lausy. One of the waiters was really drunk during our event. He was giving us recommendation about the music and forgot to clean the tables. They CHEATED us with food we paid for, later with wines and corkage fee. They made us to pay for all bottles we brought to the place. And as it turned out they used their wines instead. And we still had to pay. Later when I opened one of the boxes with wine, it was FULL of cucarachas!!! You can imagine what happens in their kitchen.

So take care! Take a look at the design and go to Sipan - really great peruanian restaurant.
