Honest basic Peruvian food. I've been there twice, both times it was packed with Peruvian, which I'm guessing it a good thing. The ceviche, which I try every where, was good. Food was good. Prices were fair. Hard to get to for tourists, but worth it.

My friends came into town and were raving about this place, it is their favorite peruvian food joint. We usually go to Sabor a Peru' but tried El Chalan because of their recommendation. The ceviche was excellent, perfectly cooked and very tasty. El Chalan allows you to order spicy, medium, or non spicy. I also had the Ahi a Gallina... More

I am speechless, the fish Ceviche is addictive, the Jalea Mixta, fried seafood is cripy and yummy, and the Tacu Tacu with Steak is something you simply must try, a dish of rice and beans with steak in a brown salty sauce...amazing, trust me.

This restaurant is usually very packed because the food is excellent. The "suspiro limeño" is "out of this world".

We have eaten at El Chalan several times and we try to eat there every time we are in the area, it is by far the best Peruvian in the area. The Ceviche is great, good portions and good price. We also enjoy the Lomo Saltado. If you are looking for great Peruvian food this is the place to go.... More

My dad loves fish so we brought him to one of our favorite places for ceviche. The food was great. The server was horrible. She abandoned us during the meal and I had to call the manager for coffee. I probably will go back but ask for another server.

The BEST Peruvian food ever. Whether you pick ceviche, fried or broiled fish or one of their rices (Paella, Mariscos or Fried) they are all fabulous! Their service is good, they don't take reservations but the wait isn't too long. It's worth the wait. If you are looking for romantic dinner this is NOT your place. The lights are all... More

What's not to like? They greet you cordially as you walk in, and bring warm crunchy rolls with butter and a green piquant sauce. You get wine, beer or sangria(too sweet for me) within the next five minutes, and as soon as you are ready , out comes the most delicious seviche (their speciality) or a well cooked Peruvian dish....
