My wife and I had breakfast at this typical local restaurant. You can also have lunch or dinner. Very friendly staff. Good choices for breakfast. They offer outstanding fresh juices (many varieties). Our waiter Marlo was very friendly and made extra effort to speak English to us and made sure we understood what we were ordering. Definitely worth a visit... More

We just randomly stopped here and we're quite delighted with the yummy pisco sours and tasty ceviche. Our waiter Marno was very attentive and helpful. He gave us a map and pointed out spots of interest. Two thumbs up!

My family and I went to Mama Olla twice during our stay in Lima. The food was good and worth its price, minus some step backs like the clearly store bough mashed potatoes, rubbery calamari and uneven cuts of tuna. I suggest sticking with the traditional peruvian food and you should end up with a pleasant meal. Our waiter, Angel,... More

All was ok in this informal eatery. Not as hiped in the reviews. Relaxed outside seating in a quiet street. Ok food and reasonable prices.

I was with a group of five and we stopped here for a late breakfast. The sandwiches were nice, recommend anything with avocado. Also pleasantly surprised by the very fast wifi. A nice place to hang out for a bit.
