My husband and I have visited Cora Cora several times over last couple of months, and also dined here with friends. We enjoyed every meal. The dishes tend to be on the high side, but very delicious.

I visited the restaurant again. I am Peruvian and can tell you that it is the best. My daughter lives in New York City and she came over to visit with some friends and off course we went to HER favorite restaurant. The place was packed, but we had reservations. The food was still excellent, the same with the service.... More

It came with french fries but I ordered the rice and a side order of the plantains. I could not get enough of it, licked my fingers... More

For years Cora Cora has an excellent service.... but last month I ordered with my boyfriend Arroz con Pollo and the rice was uncooked, so hard, my boyfriend chicken looks old and without flavor. It seems that the chicken was from the day before. When I complained to Hector (The Manager) His explanation was that we got the rice from... More

First time here, was wowed by the extensive menu of delicious foods, especially the seafood offerings. Meal was delicious and some of the best rice I've ever had. To top it off, the staff provided great service, nice and friendly. Loved the decor as well. Will definitely be back!

We went here on the recommendation from a waiter at another upscale restaurant. We were seated immediately and our waiter was very polite. The waiter gave us more information about items on the menu. We settled on the Cora Mixed Grill and the Cora Yuca Rellena for starters. The portions were enormous! Both dished were amazing. We had the Tallarin... More

I frequent the Elmwood area of West Hartford weekly and always drive by this restaurant so I decided to give it a try one evening. I'm very glad I decided to see what it had to offer. If you like authentic Peruvian cuisine then this is definitely the establishment for you. There's a variety of items on the menu and... More
