Three of us ate here and we were all very happy. I had the grilled corvina, a delicate white fish with a light chimichurri topping, served with plain rice, nicely fried yucca, a large salad, and some beautifully caramelized maduros. My husband ordered the Chaufa de Mariscos, seafood fried rice, which was such a large portion he took half of... More

There are several really good Peruvian restaurants in this very culinary town. We think the Peruvian Grill is the best one. The service is friendly and servers will help you navigate the menu and the explanations behind the listings. The ceviche is tremendous. In fact, one of these days I'm going to order an entrée consisting of the ceviche appetizers.... More

On our first trip, the food was terrific. There was a long hair in the calamari, but we got over it. On our second trip, our table was visited by a couple of cockroaches which severely diminished our enthusiasm for the good food. We'll never go back.

We were looking for some place to dine that had good food, was casual and reasonably priced. Peruvian Grill was recommended by a Peruvian who indicated we would meet our wish list in a clean, authentic environment. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is small, clean, and has delicious food. The menu is limited with Corvina dominating the fish choices.... More

This is a hidden gem. excellent food, limited drink menu, happy service, big portions. Happily surprised since it is not in the best location. I had a bowl of the shrimp soup and it was big enough for a meal and very tasty. I also tried the Ceviche mixta and it was excellent- good selection of seafood and a lovely... More

Three women, including my wife, enjoyed dinner last night at this warm, engaging and cozy restaurant in a strip mall on Beneva, sandwiched between two bars and a tobacco shop, in Sarasota. The limited menu features standard Peruvian highlights. We were limited in our order because two can only eat so much. So we shared the Seafood Chowder, chock-a-block with... More

One of several Peruvian restaurants in Sarasota, and arguably, the best. Small, almost cozy, with an agreeable and efficient staff. There is substantial variety and as said, huge servings, so big that you are invited to take uneaten portions home. I only had the seafood this trip, starting with Ceviche and then Jalea, heaping portions of fried fish and (mostly)... More

We are peruvians living in Tampa for the last 20 years, and of course, we know our food. We decided to try a new place so we drove all the way to Sarasota. The waitress spent a lot of her time just checking her cell phone. The "chicha morada" was fermented and when I mentioned that to the waitress she... More

This was our first experience with Peruvian cuisine but it will not be our last. We were a party of four and ordered the chicken cilantro soup, and four different main dishes. The soup was excellent and the bowl was huge, shared by all four of us. We ordered two Corvina fish dishes, a chicken dish and a beef dish.... More
