exceeded my expectations

We walked by the restaurant and looked at the menu posted in the window. It looked good but the restaurant has a wall with wave pattern, which changes color every minute or so and since I can't imagine eating food that is purple, then red, then green, etc, I didn't feel like entering. So we walked... read more

We went to Costazul restaurant because we had a certificate from restaurant.com of $25 but Costazul restaurant owners are doing false claims in that site because the certificate was not allowed and the owners are not doing anything to avoid this issue We stayed and ate there, food is good and waiters are very professionals. I left a note with... More

We came here based on the recommendation of a hotel staff member. The appetizer of cheese scallops was dry and generally just passable. We ordered a fish plate in some sauce and a shrimp platter in a sauce. The fish was good and had excellent vegetables. The creamy potatoes turned out to be just plain boiled potatoes. The shrimp dish... More

This is a Peruvian restaurant in the center of Coral Gables. The atmosphere is rather stark. The cerviche is very good. The Lomo Saltado was okay… on the recommendation of the waiter, we had their version of it as opposed to the classic version. Their version came with a risotto… and, detracted from the dish. I would suggest the classic... More

We went for an early dinner. Service was ok. Our waiter was new and kind of lost. Food portion was kind of salty and portion kind of small but it was a good taste.

The food is outstanding. The service is very good. South Florida is full of Peruvian Restaurantes, have tried several and this one by far is the best. The place is nice and compared to other ones the price value makes very good sense. We had a little misunderstanding in reference to a gift card and the owner contacted us before... More

This peruvian resturant is small with only 14 tables. We tried it with a group on and had to make in advance reservations since they only take a fewgroup ons every night. I enjoyed that we got to select from the regular menu instead of a group on menu. We started with the seafood cerviche which was crisp and tany.... More

As a rule, fresh and flavorful seafood dishes are found by the coast, but here the rules don't apply! I have heard that Peruvians knew their seafood, but was I wrong.. this place can compete with the best of Venice, Italy in the way the food is presented and how delicious it is! Our waiter Mike was very patient and... More
