Huaca Pucllana, Lima

Pucllana Museo de Sitio
8 General Borgoño Cuadra
Tel: 51 1 445 4042's insider take:

Even if Huaca Pucllana were located in the world's most nondescript setting, the food alone—from the crunchy yuca spirals with huancaína sauce to the classic house ceviche—would warrant a visit. Actually, the drinks would, too. The resident variations on the pisco sour theme (the aguaymanto sours, in particular) are some of the best in Lima. However, the backdrop happens to be a spectacular pre-Incan pyramid, best enjoyed from the restaurant's ample terrace. Though lunch here is lovely, dinner is even more so: The ruins are lit up, and you can walk through them after your meal.—Updated by Abbie Kozolchyk
