In an 18th-century building, this very simple and unusual eatery is run by French Carmelite nuns. Expect French and other continental specialties (think coquilles St Jacques ) with Peruvian influences. The food isn’t jaw-dropping, but the real reason to come is to enjoy the strange serenade. Every night, after dinner (at around 9pm), the nuns gather to sing ‘Ave Maria.’
