Restaurant Huaca Pucllana
Situated in the upscale Miraflores district, this Peruvian restaurant is named for the 1,500-year-old archeological ruins located just outside its walls. A large terrace provides up-close views of the pre-Inca pyramid, which is illuminated after dark to create an even more dramatic setting. Besides the terrace, the restaurant has a modern dining room with a fireside bar, minimalist white furniture, and oversize windows facing the ruins. The menu includes regional fare like seared tuna fillet with an Andean herb crust, and roasted kid goat with lima beans and tacu-tacu (a traditional dish of rice and lentils).
