Located on the splendid golf restaurant terrace, Yakumanka offers a panoramic view of the sea and golf course. The restaurant goes beyond cooking to provide a true sensory journey through the marvels and secrets of Peru. This new gem focuses on authentic Peruvian dishes using fresh, local ingredients to offer a genuine traditional cooking experience. The menu includes classic dishes such as Cebiche, one of Peru’s famous dishes prepared with finely diced fish marinated in “leche de tigre” sauce flavoured with coriander, accompanied by sweet potatoes, “choclo”, and “chulpe”, typical Peruvian corn. Seafood and land products are grilled in a wood-fired oven, giving them an unparalleled aroma and flavor, harmonized with various Peruvian spices.

Every detail of this distinctive restaurant has been carefully designed to embody the essence of Peruvian culture. The decor features a maritime theme reflecting coastal vacation vibes with hanging nets, wooden tables and chairs, and adorned wall quotes, all representing authenticity and passion that distinguish Peruvian ambience.
