If you have tasted authentic Peruvian cebiche in Lima, you will quickly notice that this is not very authentic, but I must admit that it is reasonably good. Prices are affordable, service is friendly. The menu seems to be a little bit of everything to satisfy local market but as I said before, it lacks the flavor punch that you... More

I had never experienced food from Peru, but I was lucky enough that one of my friends suggested this restaurant about two months ago and we went! All I have to say is that the food is amazing! IT IS A MUST HAVE! Since I visited the first time,I have gone back three more times and have ventured to order... More

This is our "go to" place when in the area for movies or shopping. The food is consistently good, especially their sauteed chicken dish on spaghetti with a spinach and basil cream sauce. YUM!!! The service could be a bit better and no atmosphere to speak of.

I just had never gone in the place and I've lived near it for forever. Great Sangria, food was great. The bar is a little funky but there is noboday ever at the bar. If you are looking for a place to watch a game at the last minute its great.

It was maybe the 1st time where I did not finish a meal because it just did not taste right. Got the beef dish with mashed potatoes. It was just so amazingly salty and didn't really taste fresh. Ate maybe a third of it and left. Tasted like a Costco ready to eat meal, with extra salt. Was pretty hungry... More

My favorites are the saltado de mariscos, macho fish and flan. My husband likes the pounded out chicken breast on top of spaghetti with green sauce. The complimentary French bread with butter and green aji sauce is addicting. The ambiance is nice, prices are fair, and service is okay.

In a strip mall and DELICIOUS food! The ceviche is great and the service was very helpful. This is a true restaurant with prices in the 10-25 dollar range for entrees. I was with a medium sized group and the staff did an excellent job of accommodating all of us.
