Incredible, inexpensive dinner

I was a bit timid on deciding to visit Chalan but both of us are very glad that we did. They started out with rolls with a salsa verde that grew in hotness after you ate it. The hotness wasn't a killer, though - it was hot and stayed there. We got the lomo saltado and the beef stew. Both... read more

On a recommendation we went to dinner here on our first night of vacation. Despite our waiters advice on what to order our meals were not to our liking. Apparently even though I like seafood and LOVE sushi... I don't like ceviche. Another rice and seafood dish was very bland. A fifth dinner order was brought out 15 minutes after... More

Affordable Peruvian food. Food was great! Book a table as there is a line to get a table otherwise. The ceviche was delicious!

This was one of the two best restaurants we visited on our vacation to Florida. The food and service were excellent. Unlike many places frequented by tourists in Miami Beach, Chalan on the Beach provided friendly and fast service. Chalan on the Beach has the best and most extensive menu and the food is authentic. We were a large group... More

Loved this place. Busy, great atmosphere, great front of house staff, quick service, huge portions, cheap, tasty and delicious. Such a great change from tourist traps of Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road. Get some ceviche in your life! What's not to love?!

wanted to get away from the restraunts in the area. It seemed like the same thing over and over. Went to Chalan and was ease fly surprised. Atmosphere was fun, beer was cold and the food was far better than anything in the area. Not expensive and very worth the visit.

Visited the restaurant during CSM. First time ever on a Peruvian restaurant. The Food was more than excellent, we had a wide selection of different courses. I recommend everybody to try this. The price is just half the price of the restaurant at Lincoln.

We visited this restaurant on the Miami Food Tour and came back for dinner. They do take reservations. Very popular with the locals and visitors from afar. The Parrillada de Mariscos fresh fish combination was perfect for two. Their Ceviche is outstanding. Cost is moderate. Easy walking distance from most anywhere in SB at 1580 Washington.
