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.

A group of us ate there and we were well taken care of. I had the parihuela. It was a soup with seafood. A bit spicy but very tasty. I got the medium spicy, can't imagine what hot would have tasted like. There was so much seafood in the dish that I simply could not finish. It wasn't that expensive... More

Found this via trip advisor on my to my sisters house in Farmington CT for Christmas. Wow, the food and service was outstanding. Tried the ceviche and fried fish with spices, onion, tomatoes, and asparagus, outstanding!

This restaurant is well worth visiting. The Pisco Sour was almost addictive (I had to restrain myself from ordering a second drink!) and the food was flavourful. The service was attentive and they definitely went above and beyond. When I expressed interest in the liquor used to make the Pisco Sour, the waiter brought a high end bottle of Pisco... More

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. The restaurant is generally crowded, so reservations on a Friday night would be a good idea. I would highly recommend the special fried... More

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

Visiting Hartford on business and had to go out beyond downtown. Found this place in West Hartford by the other reviews. I had the Peruvian roast chicken and it was delicious and juicy. 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
