- Casa San Agustin — Amazing.
- The Ananda — next door to Casa San Agustin, also fantastic.
- The Sofitel — luxurious, but low on personality.
But wherever you pick, make sure it’s inside the old city.
Order a Small langostino, Ceviche pescado peruano, tortastadas with guacamole.
2. El Gobernador by Rausch
Amazing. The costa negra (Colombian-style black beef) with plantains and coconut rice was one of my favorite things I’ve ever had.
For desserts and wifi.
4. Demente in Getsemani
…if you’re already in that neighborhood.
5. La Vitrola
An old Cuban place. Our highlights were the coco de pie and mojitos.
6. La Mulata
A fish place for locals.
7. Marea by Rouch
Solid, but not quite El Gobernador level.
Make sure you try:
- Ceviche — lots of it!
- Pargo rojo with coconut rice
- A granizada
