LARGE portions - consider sharing

Great meal - did not understand the menu but just explained what we wanted and the staff made recommendations. REALLY good prices in an expensive area.

Service and food are awesome. The sea bass was delicious as was the seafood dish with rice. Not a fancy place but the service and the quality of the food make up for it.

I'll admit I've never eaten Peruvian food before. However, after eating here I don't see why everybody is raving about this restaurant. Yes, the portions are huge. Yes, the service was good. (Actually I found it to be abrupt and not so welcoming at the start, but when we had an issue with our order this was solved in an... More

We had a lovely time at this restaurant. Staff were friendly and helpful. Sangria was a winner.we relied on waiter's suggestion for seafood main courses and it did not disappoint - hearty portions, fresh fish and great combination of flavours! If South Africa was not so far away this restaurant would have seen me return many times!

Visited several cities in Florida with my sisters. This restaurant in Miami Beach served us one of the best dinners. We had ceviche mixto, arroz chaufa (Peruvian fried rice) and Parillada de mariscos. Yummy! We were too full to try dessert. Cafe con leche was pretty good. Staff was friendly and efficient. I would return the next time I visit... More

The 5 stars are not for gourmet style food, but for honest and hearty dishes that come in big portions and with small twists (such as cilantro marinated meat or very hot chilli dip sauce) at great prices. We had a great dinner and were back the next day for lunch

Food with a Peruvian flair is what's on offer at Chalan. Almost everyone in the restaurant was Peruvian, so I guess that's an indication of its authenticity. Our dishes were mixed. The fish with shrimp was tasty but the ceviche was disappointing. Portions for both were generous. We shared a classic Peruvian dessert which was very good.

Went for lunch had ceviche and a beef dish with rice and onion and peppers. Beef was so thin , I guess it is Latino style. Even though it was so thin it doesn't mean it has to be bad . Meat was terrible. Mystery meat as I call it. And ceviche very soso. My apology for this harsh review.... More

Much of Miami can be showy and pricy, but not Chalan. It was so nice to find a low-key restaurant that was substance over flash. Don't get me wrong, the place is nice - get a window seat and people watch (note, it is not actually on the beach...a few blocks inland). But...it is all about the food here! Order... More
