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

Stopped in town for business and saw the raving reviews, so I chose to visit. Everyone was right, it was absolutely delicious! I ordered a plantas de quinoa, ohhhhh I couldn't stop eating it. It was so flavorful. I also got a side of fried yuccas, because those are my favorite, it was fried perfectly and was such a large... More

You know it's a good sign when you walk in and the tables are full of multi-generational Peruvian families. Despite it being in an old McDonalds the food is fresh, varied, healthy and we assume traditional. Our waitress was super friendly and helped us navigate the menu for both kids and adults. The Sangria was excellent! I highly recommend it... More

Love Cora Cora from the moment we walk in the door every time. Staff is super friendly. My 8-year old son is always thrilled to go there for the salchipapas (basically a hot dog and fries), my daughter loves her Bisteca and my wife and I always share the Ceviche Mixto, which is quite adequate for 2 people. We always... More

Hidden gem in a section of West Hartford, would never have guessed to find such a great ethnic restaurant in this part of town! Service was excellent, Muna was such a sweetheart and had great suggestions. The menu might be a little overwhelming if you have never had Peruvian food before but definitely worth going outside of your comfort zone!... More

We read the various accolades for this restaurant and decided to try it for a birthday dinner. We began with Pisco Sours, which were very good ($9.00 each) and we given Peruvian dried corn with a dip. The dip was OK, fairly non-descript. We ordered a salad with quinoa. Unfortunately, it never arrived. My husband order trout with one of... More

Had to find a spot for lunch and this place sounded exotic and for the most part it was. Quinoa dish was terrific, appetizers of mango ceviche were wonderfully spicy and despite the fact that the space appears to be in a converted Wendy's we all had a grand time. Portions were huge and could have been split! Lots of... More

Dinner with friends on a weeknight. Service and food was excellent. We tried a variety of dishes and all were delicious and fresh. Big, tender shrimp, scrumptious cerveche, and delicious beef. Very reasonable priced. Take a picture with the life sized llama, or was it an alpaca?

Being Peruvian has always been an advantage when it comes to enjoying Peruvian Restaurant food because I know exactly what to order although it can sometimes become a boring experience. From the first time I had a meal at Cora Cora until now every experience is just like the first time, they have the most extensive menu catering to all... More
