Our dining area is warm and romantic with art lining the walls and soft Latin music in the background. It is large enough for any occasion and can seat up to 50. Our outdoor patios also has soft Latin music to make an evening under the stars a night to remember. We are locate in the heart of Fairhopes most famous Art Districts with plenty of shopping and fine dining.

Really wonderful food made to order. Lovely people and nice atmosphere. Enjoyed the special carnitas. Definitely get the tamale; loved the light Peruvian slaw on the side. Very friendly place.

After reading the other reviews and purchasing a Groupon, we tried this place. Since we both love authentic food, we were excited. Our first visit was a disappointment but we thought maybe it was just what we ordered. We came back a couple of weeks later, ordered different things and still were not impressed. Chicken is chicken...nothing special. The rice... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant at lunch time, just after opening for the day. We were not familiar with the cuisine served here, but wanted a break from all the vacation seafood we had been eating! We are so glad we stopped! This food is fresh, made on site, and delicious! We will be back! Lunch prices very reasonable.

My husband and I took my two boys and one of their dates to celebrate my birthday. One son ordered the Peruvian soft drink, which was very good, and my husband ordered the sangria, also good. We got a variety of dishes, ranging from the chicken with potatoes and slaw, to a fried fish topped with a seafood sauce and... More

Stopped in for a drink with friends. Met Cristina and had a very nice conversation. Very interesting since she grew up in Peru. Cristina made me an authentic Peruvian appetizer that was delicious. All food is made from scratch on the premises.

What a pleasant surprise to find Peruvian cuisine on a brief trip through Fairhope. We stopped for lunch on our way home from Perdido Key to walk the shops and grab a bite. We almost stayed the night just to be able to return to this lovely restaurant. The food was yummy and well prepared. The ceviche was delicious, but... More

Walking through downtown Fairhope, we noticed one of those chalkboard signs restaurants have for the daily menu. Paella, and more! I was kind of hesitant because I had my two young children in tow, but decided it was worth it. We ordered for an appetizer - the tamale. It had chicken inside, and they served it with a very spicy... More

I ordered 5 different types of sandwiches (several of each) for a catered office lunch. Everyone really enjoyed it and one person described his sandwich as "kickin'." The grouper sandwich seemed to be the biggest hit of all.
