Really nice unusual flavors

Small family owned. Enjoyed our meal here. Started off with anticuchos meat skewers. Very tasty. Accompanying green sauce was extremely spicy but not needed. Pescado a la menier was also delicious but didn't think much of either the accompanying mixed vegetables or french fries... read more

The food here is authentic. My wife is Peruvian and she loves it. The service is a little slow and its pricey but if you want authentic Peruvian food, you wont be disappointed.

I joined two friends who had an expired groupon coupon for dinner at Villa Peru. Had trouble finding it in the mini mall but they had several vegetarian options on the menu. The taste was bland but it was the first time I had Peruvian food. My friends enjoyed their meals: chicken with rice and seafood platter. Was a quiet... More

We knew we'd come back to Villa Peru and unfortunately we might not be back. We found a deal on Living Social. It promised quite a deal. We went on a Tuesday night so it was not busy. We had even called as requested for the Living Social deal. Too bad we weren't told while on the phone that they... More

We must have picked the wrong dish or gone on the wrong night (a Friday) but our lamb shank dinner was horrible—extremely tough and dry (my wife would have thrown it out). When we told the waiter about it the first time, he brought me a sharper knife to cut the tough meat. When he came back to check, I... More

Villa Peru is a casual, friendly with excellent food. We ate ceviche, seafood soup and aji de Gallina. Each dish was well executed and tasty. The ceviche in particular was clean and fresh tasting. Try something different and go here. Generous portions, so you can easily split some of the dishes. Nice folks serving food too.
