Very Good Authentic Peruvian Food

My wife and I and another couple had dinner at the Peruvian Grill. Waitress was very welcoming and capable with good service. Food was very good especially the ceviches.

The multi-ethnic influences of true Peruvian cooking are wonderfully on display in this hidden away location at Clark and Beneva. A family operation with flavors and presentation to make the other Peruvian and "fusion" contenders green with envy. Available beers and wines perfectly compliment the menu. Be adventurous. Try the beef heart and fish offerings. Do ask if grandma's chocolate... More

This is the second time we have driven close to 100 miles to come down to Sarasota and have dinner here. The place is outside of the city in a strip mall and not too easy to find, but it is well worth finding it. There are only about 15 tables... The food is genuine Peruvian and all made from... More

The tiny, almost deserted strip mall doesn't inspire confidence, but their food is delicious and well priced. I had never had Peruvian food before, but will return, even though we live in Palm Harbor now. The service is always good and the food beyond excellent. I highly recommend it, don't pass it up. Usually I'm a grouch in my evaluations,... More

Small restaurant in non descript strip mall. Dark with around 10 or so tables. We were the only ones there but it was 3PM. Food was totally amazing. My wife is from Colombia and almost never likes the rice anywhere but she loved it here. The food was outstanding. We both had fish and it was perfect. I had some... More

The food was delicious and they serve a lot of it. My husband had the Peruvian fried rice and I had the boneless chicken with rice. The waitress was very nice

It's a small restaurant but has delicious food and interesting Peruvian décor. I always get the lomo saltado - an excellent dish containing strips of beef and onions served with rice and French fries. Definitely recommend!

Our party of four throughly enjoyed our menus of cordova and steak with seafood. A chocolate cake for dessert was to die for. The service was impeccable.

Being in that my fiance is part Peruvian, we are always on the lookout to try Peruvian restaurants. This is one of our favorites to go to time and time again! Inside is very small and quaint, but definitely feels authentic. We have enjoyed every different dish we have tried from there...but our favorite "go-to" meal is Lomo Saltado with... More
