Sorry to see it go

We were there a couple of nights before they were closing. The had lost the lease. They will be greatly missed. The food was always great with very good service. The owner and his wife make a very good team.

The restaurant was quiet and the tables well spaced. The wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful. He explained the dishes and offered suggestions on the wine. The food was excellent and generous portions. We stayed mainly with the nightly specials (lobster bisque, salad, BBQ pork ribs), but they have an extensive menu and several good fish choices. The wine list... More

Saturday night out with my husband; we had a very enjoyable evening. The atmosphere is cozy; the Server was very knowledgeable and friendly; the food quality is outstanding.... delicious. We had lobster-ravioli with grilled shrimp and halibut in parchment paper. Glasses of wine were very good, too!

Anthony's fashion show is quite often on the menu. Great fun and excellent salads. Highly recommend. Be sure to make a reservation as it is a very small restaurant.

Delicious and wonderful service, vegetarian friendly. Relaxing atmosphere. Will return. Had been a peruvian restaurant in the past now more standard seafood and itilian style with a touch of peruvian dishes. Ask for the yuca a la huanciana appetizer
