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

Good food, good portions & a great vibe, many options in the menu, the service from start to finish is excellent. If ever travelling from NYC to CT or Boston, make sure to stop & try this place.

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!
