Always a Really Nice Experience

We have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions and with only one very minor exception, the experience has always been wonderful. The food is excellent and the service is decent and nicely timed for a slow but steady meal. The menu is extensive and all of the dishes we have had, have... read more

I don't know what is authentic Peruvian food is but the food was amazing. Even my 5 year old was thrilled with his shrimp dish. I didn't know so many dishes existed on a menu with quinoa as main grain, perfect for a vegetarian like me. Typically I don't like having ice creams but we had cannoli filled ice cream... More

Ate at cora cora with Husband and daughter after a great day at the Mystic Aquarium and let me say the food and service was SPOT ON.. The server was very attentive and always anticipated our needs. My daughter was a bit fussy at first and they had us sitting and eating in no time. THE PLACE WAS PACKED on... More

We very much enjoyed our lunch here introducing 2 newcomers to the virtues of Peruvian food. Food was well prepared and service was very good. Our friends have since been back for takeout since we left town so they must have loved it too. The decor and atmosphere are very nice as well and add to the experience.

I had an hour to fill while my car was being repaired. I went to Cora Cora thinking it was only fast food place. I was very pleasantly surprised. I was welcomed by everyone and had a pleasant hour with a great Peruvian wine and an appetizer.

A little hard to find in a strip mall off New Britain Avenue. Look for the building that used to be a McD. My wife loves that fish stew; I've tried most of the chicken items. The flavors are unique, not like Mexican or Brazilian. They're subtle yet everything tastes fresh, not canned or frozen. This is not burritos and... More

A friend recommended this restaurant to us a couple years ago. We have been a number of times since. The food is very tasty and interesting. The waitstaff is among the best around as far as knowledge of the menu, courtesy, and friendliness. We like this place a lot!

I had lunch with a friend and expected greatness when you see its rated number one in West Hartford - a town with a plethora of restaurants to choose from. Lunch was average and disappointing as we ordered their special to try an app, entree and dessert. Some stars for the anticuchos and lomo saltado and chicha with deductions for... More

It is hard to beat the price or the volume of food in this place. The service is great and the food very tasty. The dish I like the most is the shrimp with the tomatoe rice. We can seldom finish our meal. The white fish is very good as well.

Cora Cora has become a part of our Friday nights. We order the Rotisserie chicken including salad and fries for $18. You can either get delivery or pick up and enjoy this meal for a family of 4 at home. It gives my wife the night off from cooking but still feels like a home cooked meal.
