ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!! The best Peruvian Food around!

A few friends of mine were in town this past weekend and were hungry for something different; something unique and mouth watering. I've heard about this place repeatedly from a few family members and decided i'd bring the old gang here. Well what a way to start the night I'll tell ya, nothing beats... read more

My girlfriend and I visited Cora Cora for the first time this past Saturday night after reading the reviews here on TA. We loved every bit of what was a delightful dining experience. The menu, the food, the drinks, the service and the staff were all wonderful! We enjoy trying new restaurants and were thrilled to have found Cora Cora.... More

The restaurant is located in a former McDonald's facility in a strip mall area close to the Hartford/West Hartford line. The place was almost empty when we arrived and was probably 60-70% occupied when we left at 8pm. The server was excellent and was exceptionally courteous. In the area we were in, there was a HD TV showing scenes from... More

Recently went to this Peruvian restaurant. The Ceviche was good. We also had the Loma saltado a lo pobre. However, i declined the egg. The food was great as well as the presentation. The bread was very fresh and hot. Members of my party were very dissapointed with their expresso and cafe con leche. Since there was a member who... More

We drove from 30 miles away to enjoy this deliciously unique cuisine. The ambiance is pleasant and the food is always fresh and prepared from scratch. The staff was very attentive and they made sure that our experience was a enjoyable one. That's why we keep coming back. Long live Cora Cora!

First time to the restaurant, we went on a recommendation of a friend. Staff super friendly, so many food choices and we loved the experience. It brought me back to a trip I took to Peru - especially the Inca Cola and the Cusquena beer. We has two huge dishes for 3 people and also loved the dried corn niblets... More

We decided to eat here one day due to a few recommendations and I have to say I was pretty dissapointed. We had the ceviche which was ok, we ordered a beef dish and a chicken dish sorry but I can't recollect the names of the dishes. We also asked for bread and we received a kaiser roll cut in... More

I've been a resident of a new development in West Hartford for 8 years. My neighbors are an eclectic bunch, from distinguish locals to newcomers from far places like me. A group of 10 of us went to Cora Cora for dinner a few days ago. As the only Latin American in the group, I felt responsible for guiding my... More

My husband and I dined at Cora Cora during a brief visit to Connecticut. After researching local restaurants in West Hartford on Trip Advisor, we immediately chose Cora Cora because of the positive reviews and our live of Peruvian cuisine. The restaurant is beautifully decorated in the middle of a strip mall. We ordered the Mixed Ceviche for an appetizer.... More

I purchased a $100 gift card to Cora Cora and gave it to our daughter. After having dinner and presenting the card, she was told that the card had no value and the restaurant made her pay the entire amount. They made no effort to check with me (I have a credit card receipt), and did not offer even a... More
