A hotel manager where I'm staying recommended this place if I liked fried fish. I have never been so glad to take a recommendation. We grabbed a taxi (thankfully as the parking is limited, but very interesting to watch) and had perfect timing as we didn't have to wait, but the crowd grew more and more as the night went... More

Tremendous restaurant of Peruvian cuisine. Excellent service (consistently). The waitress and bartender was very attentive. A hidden treasure in Isla Verde, San Juan. The Piscojito (Peruvian version of Puerto Rican Mojito was really great. Recommended.

Coming from a true peruvian.. the food looked delicious but tasted bad and was overpriced. The chef wasnt definitely peruvian and the chicha was watered down with ice which didnt make it taste like actual chicha. The pisco sour was too lemony and sour no pisco taste. Waitresses didnt know much about peruvian cuisine which is not helpful when ur... More

We tried the ceviche with octopus and shrimp and it was amazing. The seasoning was perfect. We also had the yuca and tostones and they were amazing as well. If you are close to isla verde you must try this place. The staff are mostly girls and they are very pretty hehe.
