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.

Had dinner here with friends one night and it was completely worth the money! This restaurant does get crowded very quickly so you may have to wait a little bit for a table, but it was completely worth it. We met a gentleman named Victor while waiting who eats here on a weekly basis who suggested several menu items to... More

We visited this restaurant last year with a foodie tour group and have gone back several times afterward. Food has consistently been great. Fresh, Peruvian cuisine. The servers are very helpful in describing the menu items. Family owned business for over 25 years, which is really saying something for a restaurant in South Beach. Prices are good.

This was our first venture into Peruvian food. The owners and waitstaff couldn't have been any more accommodating. They helped us decide on a variety of entrées, everything was good. Be sure to sample the spicy pepper sauce that is served with the bread. Good food and service for the price.

We tasted delicious food for lunch. Service was quick and friendly. The atmosphere is one up from a diner. Comfortable and clean. The food. The food. My steak was beautifully seasoned, and the onions and tomatoes made a great garnish. The fish sew was sublime. Huge chunky pieces of seafood in a fabulous broth!!

This is my third time to South Beach and this time was all about the Sangria. This place had the best...loved it. The place seems family owned and delicious. Worth every dime, even though the prices are VERY reasonable for South Beach. The waiter was genuine and advised my friend and I to share a plate, as the serving was... More
