Years ago this was a dreamy restaurant with good food. Not anymore. Second visit in 6 months confirmed the decline. It has become too big and too much of a production line. The need to pack 'em in has destroyed the elegant, relaxed air it used to have. The huge outdoor covered terrace added on to the original one means that unless you are right at the edge you might as well be inside. Worse, the main space is often used for events in which case you have no view and the noise, while the inside area is crowded.
The food, in spite of a good new chef, is very disappointing. The menu is short on traditional dishes without a compensating excellent new cuisine selection. It is heavily fish (not seafood) with rather similar sauces. Our starters were fine if uninspired but the fish (pasta, corvina) was dry - a crime in Lima. The arroz picante was completely devoid of picante - tourist alert - and had little flavor. The suspiro was good - light and not too sweet.
The service was poor. "you done?" is not what one expects at these prices. By the time the waiter appeared to take a win order after cocktails the main course was already in the table.The menu says service included in large letters but it was clear that no one took that seriously.
I dont usually slam restaurants but the Huaca is expensive (s./50-70 for most mains) and well below the standard of most comparable and cheaper places.
