After a tough competition, the restaurant at El Condor Hotel took the first place.
The prize-giving ceremony was attended by Mayor Rosario Ramirez, who highlighted the gastronomic quality of the participating eateries.
The culinary contest —organized by the Municipality of Paracas— was attended by more than 4,000 visitors from Lima, who mostly filled three, four, and five-star hotels.
"Paracas hotels were packed after 17 months, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including six four-star hotels, five five-star hotels, as well as all the three-star hotels," the authorities reported.
