We ate here two evenings. My favorite dish was the Peruvian seafood stew -- parihuela I think it is called--satisfyingly spicy. Bread is served with a unique dipping sauce. Prefer the quiet here to some of the more noisy, popular restuarants.

This place is... different? Peruvian, Argentine, and Italian cuisine? It works!! The food and service are simply awesome! Steaks are perfectly seasoned and cooked, and the seafood is fresh. A must when visiting Ft. Myers. Another hidden gem!

Great Peruvian/Argentinian good. Had Pescado a lo Macho, worth writing home about it. Service is good. Location is in strip mall. Food better than location. Worth the ride there. Reasonable prices.

Every time we are in the area we drop by, as there aren't too many choices in the East Ft Myers area that are unique. And every time we eat here it's an adventure. The food is pretty good. However, we were wondering about its authenticity last time we were there as both our Chicken Lomo and Steak Lomo didn't... More

If you are traveling I-75 and need a great place for a dinner break, try Gaucho de Inca!!! Food is authentic, delicious , and the atmosphere is "mom&pop" charming, with indigenous South American tapestries and souvenirs hiding the acoustic tile of the strip mall retail location. It's not too far from the highway. The service was attentive and the price... More

Delectable flavors await you at this eclectic venue. Dishes containing amazing ingredients were presented beautifully plated. The waitress was knowledgable and was quick to explain any items that we did not know. Worth the trip. Great decor. Awesome food.

Seven of us celebrated wife's birthday here. We had a variety of dishes, all seven were complimentary about their dinners. My favorites: appetizer....avocado stuffed with shrimp. Dinner Pescado a lo Macho....absolutely fantastic slightly spicy sauce over fish, topped with seafood.A must for beer drinkers...try the Peruvian beer. Good service and atmosphere.

Pescado a lo macho no Bueno.!!! Poor quality fish, miniature shrimp, very small squid, and overcook rice. The salt checkers caps are hold with pieces of dirty disgusting tape, the floors looks dirty.. This place is going down.. The sangria was so bad that we return it.. The Peruvian beer was good though

I had the vegetable wok fried quinoa and I must say that I like it better than vegetable fried rice, it was so delicious and filling that I wanted seconds! I have also tried their quinoa salad, it is so refreshing that it makes for a good appetizer, or meal, if you want it as an appetizer be ready to... More

We were looking for something different and we definitely found it. The atmosphere was super and our server was fantastic. She helped us it making choices since we had never eaten Peruvian or Argentinian food. We all tried the native foods and were happy with everything we ate and drank!
