To be honest, this is the first time I've had authentic Peruvian food so the dishes I ordered were recommended by the server. I also had a Pisco Sour cocktail. Holy cow that thing was strong. I had a mashed potato and chicken appetizer. it was seasoned well and quite filling. For the entree I had... read more

As a vegetarian who spent time in Peru without finding many options, I was really excited when I read about the veggie friendly options at this Peruvian restaurant, but my dreams did not come true. I ordered the vegetable paella, and instead received the seafood paella with every type of seafood you can imagine mixed in with my rice, which... More

Just up the street from my hotel, it provided an excellent meal at a good price. As would be expected in a Peruvian restaurant, they had several varieties of ceviche.

We ate here a couple of times. Seafood is fresh. The soups are very tasty. Prices are not cheap, but quality seems good. Waiters and Waitresses are not very friendly. So for service, I would rate it a poor.

I liked the atmosphere which seemed like South American Colonial. The food was Peruvian. I had a sea bass that was very tasty with a wonderful sauce. When I first came in I was only their second customer and I got plenty of attention. After being served the meal it was like I did not exist which seems to be... More

We read about this restaurant in one of our two guidebooks (Fodors & Lonely Planet) and decided that for our last meal in Panama City, we would dine there. It was a bit of a trek from our hotel, but saw it as an urban adventure to eat Peruvian food. The interior is more traditional for a nicer family-run restaurant,... More

We tried a couple of times to go here, but the first time they were closed for Carnival. We had enjoyable meals and the service was good but not exceptional. The sea bass was very good. One meal was with shrimp and the other (sauteed) with Tacu Tacu. We've been to Peru and was please to find some of their... More

We went on a Friday night and it was crowded and loud. We were seated immediately and chose a table away from the band so that we could still hear the live music without it being too noisy. We enjoyed the Sangria and Pisco Sour (both free with a Foursquare check-in!). We ordered the Corvina a la Perricholi and Corvina... More
