"Rosa Nautica not so Rosy" Departamento de Lima Tourist Trap Tip by blondelaw

Departamento de Lima Tourist Traps: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Rosa Nautica is a beautiful restaurant. However, the manager and staff are incredibly rude. Food is good, however, you can get a great meal at many great restaurants in Lima. If you want a view of the ocean while you have drinks and a meal, sit out at Mangoes or one of the many restaurants on LarcoMar's cliffside for lunch rather going to Rosa Nautica where staff will talk about you and point at you from across the room if you don't order a dessert or if you question a mysterious charge on your bill. They also charge a "Cover Charge" of 10 soles per person just to sit and eat at their restaurant. Finally, the menu clearly states that tax is included in all meals, yet when our bill came, almost 50% of the bill was cover charge, and two "taxes" as well as service charge. When we questioned this, the waiter walked away from our table after stating "that's all taxes." After leaving a 10% tip on top of the 10% service already added to our bill, the waiter came back to our table to tell us that our tip was "no good" but he kept it nonetheless and would not return the credit card slip to us to change the tip to ZERO after such rudeness.
