Great food - service ok

The food was awesome. We all tried a different Peruvian dish and were all very pleased. Flavorful and plenty of food. The place isn't very busy and our server was not very attentive but I would go back!

We went to this restaurant by chance while shopping. We ordered the special Peruvian dish and fish. i must say both were probably the best we have had. They could improve on the service but i had to give them 5 stars for the excellent food.

A wonderful meal, Tacu Tacu and Cilantro Rice made a memorable meal along with white wine sangria. Didn't know much about Peruvian food before our visit but now we are sold. Excellent friendly service. Don't pay the high prices of Lincoln Rd mall or along the beach, great food is waiting nearby.

The seafood dishes selection was awesome. I had Tropical Pescada (fried fish with rice and tropical flavor). It was so delicious. The service was excellent. And we enjoyed sangrias for drinks. We will definitely be back.

We stopped here on a food tour and had the ceviche and lomo saltado. Both were excellent and we can't wait to go back for dinner and have more!

My wife and I discovered this little bijoux when walking toward the Lincoln area in South Beach and we really love it. We wanted a nice seafood restaurant, but apart from the huge posh(ish) blasonated restaurants (where they treat you more like a cash machine than a customer) the choice in South Beach was really poor. Then we end up... More

My husband and me were only in Miami for two days for NYE 2014, and I wanted seafood. We did a Yelp search, and stumbled upon this little hidden gem. I was very skeptical because unlike most of the restaurants of South Beach Miami, this place didn't have the chic ambiance or outdoor seating or cocktail menu that I was... More

Lipsmackingly delicious, and reasonably priced. You cannot go wrong with this place! Excellent Ceviche, as well as seafood dishes. Even the chicken soup that I ordered for my five year old was so good that I almost ordered one for myself. Glad that I didn't though because I was filled up to my throat with the generous portion of the... More
