Since i am half peruvian, I was picky. I ordered Aji de Gallina and asked for fresh aji, and surprise, they brought the fresh aji to see before cooking my plate. The sea food was incredible.

Waiters tried to push the dearest wine available but the food was a joy. Stuffed squid was delicious - mixed platter to begin was also very good. Fish was wonderfully fresh - really good although not cheap.

This restaurant paints itself as Peruvian cuisine, but it definitely offers a lot more. The seafood was superb and the dessert I had (Manjar blanco) was absolutely amazing. One of my favorite restaurants in El Salvador!
