MARVELOUS EXPERIENCE

Cozy environment with elegantly cheerful group of waiters primed an evening that started with a good white wine along with a delicious ceviche, followed by really tasty food and desert, all of it for a pretty much affordable price. Excellent choice!

Incredible Peruvian food! As a local, I would say this is a must-go restaurant. Exquisite food and taste, good service. Restaurant located in a nice area (Lago Sul). Expensive prices.

This restaurant is excellent! The food was delicious. We were a party of four and ordered different plates. All of us were satisfied. The ceviche is wonderful and the service is excellent. The wine selection very impressive. I would love to go back to try another plate. It's a little pricey but worth it!

The restaurant really lives up to its fame. It is not cheap, but you can get a reasonable deal at lunch. Needless to say that you really should make the complete meal. Having a ceviche as appetizers and a proper dessert is a must. The "combinado peruano" (dessert) which includes ice cream, rice pudding and fresh fruit was really great... More

We went here to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. We have visited Lima Peru and Peruvian restaurants in the US. This was really authentic and delicious. We had the ceviche taypa with classic, Chifa and Nippon. The was very well done with sweet potato and corn. Was missing the corn nuts to be really authentic. The Nippon was a wonderful... More

Book early to avoid disappointment as this place is very popular and rightly so. Excellent cerviche to start and even better main course. We had booked but they couldn't find our reservation so seated us in a poor table by the kitchen. They were not happy when we complained but eventually allowed us to move onto the veranda at the...

Food was great yet very salty, all plates, expect for the desert :) Staff always trying to help you and nice place for a romantic dinner. It's away from the city center, so prepare to get a taxi or renting a car. I found wines very expensive.

I went to this restaurant and I had a horrible headache the table were under a light spot, I asked to change tables and employees did not like it, and they made sure I was aware of that. They put us in another table with the same spot lightening straight to my eyes. The food was not that great, in... More

Great food, lovely service. A little bit out of the centre of Brasilia but as Brasilia does not really have a centre and you need to drive anywhere anyway (and traffic is easy) this is a must. Yummy!

Great ceviche and Peruvian inspired meals (all done with finesse). At lunch, they have a tasting menu with appetizer, main course and desert (R$72,00). You should try any of the Lomo dishes.
