Named for an iconic local bus, this contemporary bistro serves Peruvian–Mediterranean fare, with sustainable fish. Some dishes seem rushed, but standouts include homemade ravioli with barbecued meat, fluffy rice bowls and duck risotto. The bar serves wine and pisco concoctions, or try the amazing herba luisa lemonade. To end on a sweet note, split the crisp, warm churros for dessert.
