A little disappointing

In honesty I think we may have picked the wrong dishes. We aren't fans of too much sauce and sadly the octopus starter we had was smothered in an olive mayonnaise salsa that distracted from the tasty octopus. The same happened with the tiradito that we ordered. We asked about the difference between... read more

We loved the setting of this small restaurant in Pucon. We tried sevice which was excellent and had 2 fish dishes, both were tasty and full of flavour. The only complaint: the portions are way too big. Washed it down with an excelent Emiliana wine which was house wine. The waitress was very attentive though the food was arriving a... More

We have gone to viva peru twice now and on both occasions the food was good. Rice dishes with chicken are very tasty and seem to have some asian influences here. The price / quality relation is good and the place looks the part, when you want to eat a nice dinner with your spouse. Peruian pisco sour was the... More

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.
