Great service, even if we had to wait for the opening at time (Chilean timing) but so far the best ceviche... Please try the salmon one with a pisco sour... Yummy!

While I've had better Peruvian food in Peru, I think Viva Peru does a good job with its dishes, given the limited Peruvian ingredients you find in Chile. My friends and I had two different types of cerviche and an assortment of chifa (Peruvian Chinese food) dishes. The food was a little on the salty side but otherwise very flavorful.... More

The lamb stew was so juicy and so good. The seafood soup was also delicious. Totally recommend this place. The food is extremely flavorful.

We love Peruvian food and we have extremely good experience of Peruvian restaurants in Chili but this time It was a big disappointment. The food is not bad but nothing special and certainly not with a Peruvian touch. The service was slow. We received our apertise together with the main course. Since the apertise was a cold dish we eat... More

We had a great dinner and good service. The food was slightly more spicy than many Chilean restaurants, but this is a good thing. Informal atmosphere, fun evening.

I am afraid that the standard of food in Pucon is average to poor. This restaurant is fine- Pisco and ceviche are good. But compared to the quality in Santiago, I am afraid it is very second best. Friendly service, nice setting , but the food is no more than ok.

Overall, a NICE exerience ! Tasy food and friendly service with a relaxed atmosphere- we ate outside. It seems odd to find Peruvian food so far away from the "north' but when you have the urge to have it- it is certainly a luxury to find it in southern lattitides!

I don't know where to begin on how disappointing this lunch was -- We ordered tiradito as per the waiter's recommendation - basically ceviche with bigger pieces of fish and an egg/lime sauce. What we got was a couple of pathetic strips of tilapia and tiny shrimp swimming in way too much sauce. Overall, not worth the CH$8000 it cost.... More
