Good seafood and deserts, nice atmosphere, the wine and beer were reasonably cheep and very enjoyable. We loved the fresh seafood and caramel - based deserts. In the end, we now know we'll love Peru food when we'll hopefully visit!

We were in town for a short trip and a concierge at our hotel recommended this place. The food and service were great. This is a restaurant that I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

This resturaunt is awesome. One of the best Peruvian resturaunts in Southbeach. The food is delicious. We ordered the ceviche mixto to start( mixed seafood with lemon and fresh cilantro) this dish is spicy and I have to say that most of the dishes contain seafood except for a few here and there We also ordered soup on the day...

Loved the fish soup and octopus ceviche. Order a small portion of both. Peruvian desserts are not my thing - too sweet. Service was super-friendly.

The service was excellent and i loved the food. Nicely done. Satisfies everything i could possibly want when I'm dining outside… Rice+ seafood (grilled, steamed, fried)+ good price+ location + friendly service. A good home run for me on every count. Returning again.

This place was recommended by 3 separate people. It is quaint, but NOT on the beach. Our group ordered Papas la Huancaina as an appetizer (boiled potatoe with a sauce over). It was delicious. Then of course I ordered my favorite Peruvian dish- Lomo saltado (beef sautéed with tomatoes, onions, and French friends served over rice). And others ordered another... More
