If the owner is Peruvian is an scamer, Or maybe he's street vendor but definitely doesn't know anything about Peruavian Food but the worst part is they charge you as you are eating in France or New York . Close that place. Understood that people in Brasil need to work but do it right.

I love Peruvian food so I went and checked out the Intihuasi restaurant with my family. The place is very small but nice. Service is good although rather distant and serious. We ordered lomo saltado, arroz con mariscos and ceviche. It was good quality tasty classic peruvian food. The problem is with the price. 50 to 70 $R per plate... More

I'm Peruvian so I know what the cuisine is and I don't know why people are giving them high marks for something so below mediocre. This is more of a moderation to the taste of the locals and those who do not know what real Peruvian cuisine is, plus it was far too expensive for something so bad. For example,... More

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!

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
