I'm Peruvian -American and I'm working at the World Cup, I was starving to eat my Peruvian Food. Many loco people tell us about this place.

This is by far the best ceviche in Rio! If you don't mind the slow service and the scanty waiters you will love it! Highly recommend it!

If you want enjoy a great Peruvian meal, at Intihuasi you will for sure find the real cuisine from Peru. The restaurant is very small and not in a great area, but the food compensate all, as they serve the "Best" Ceviche, the main meals also have the favor you want find from Peru. Don't exitate and just ask for... More

The restaurant is small but has a pleasant atmosphere. The food is good, not exceptional, however it is overpriced for the quality and also for the service, as the waiters are not attentive.

Just been to Intihuasi, situated in the neighbourhood of Flamengo, on a street just off Guanabara Bay. I was surprised with the quality and variety of the food. In a rather shabby two-storey building Chef Margarita Sayan from Peru has created a warm, friendly and interesting restaurant decorated with books, articraft and pictures. The portions were of good size compared... More

This restaurant offers typical peruvian dishes. I had a tamales mix as a starter and a lomo saltado as the main dish. Both were good. I also had a Pisco Sour. After eating excellent food at other restaurants in Rio, including Lima Restobar, I was expecting however, something comparable to Gastón Acurio, the great Peruvian cook. This was not the... More

Pisco sour was best part of the evening, vedy well done but pricey @R19. Lomo Saltado was very disappointing. Excesive gravy and seemed to have an asian influence?? Not what I was hoping for or wanted. Ceviche was just OK, but way overpriced. Have had better Peruvian food in the US at better prices. Arrogant condescending waiter. Wish i'd gone... More

After trying to book by phone and having dealt with the rudest receptionist I've ever had on the phone, we were craving Peruvian food strongly enough that we decided to give Intihuasi a try anyway. We were greeted and sat upstairs by an apathetic waiter who seemed bored out of his mind. He didn't offer us any drinks we ordered... More

Intihuasi is a small restaurant located in Flamengo that has the best Peruvian food in town. In the last few years, Peruvian food has become more popular (why it took so long I do not understand why because the cuisine of Peru is fantastic!) and Intihuasi does the fine cuisine of Peru true justice both in preparation and presentation.

Small place, but cozy with great service. Beautiful at night. Also good for small lunch groups. Good choice of authentic Peruvian Cuisine.
