Great meal with great service. Food seemed authentic yet within reach of most. I enjoyed my beef tip stew, my eleven year old had duck over rice and my nine year old had a great filet mignon. Deserts were fun as well. This is a must visit!

It was a bonus that they had 3 reasonably priced port wines with... More

It was a very pleasant experience to visit this place. Service was A+. All the servers and the owners were checking up on any detail in our order, explaining us all the ingredients. It was perfect, thanks...

This appears to be the same restaurant as "Javiers" so see my review for that restaurant and you'll see the same positive review.

I have been to countries where it is customary to add gratuities to the bill. No problem. You know what the rules are. What Javier's does is to add the gratuity, 15%, (certainly not customary in America for a party of two) then present you with a credit card slip with a total (now including gratuity) and a line to...

We've stopped being surprised that a strip mall can deliver exceptional restaurants. In fact, the little mall where Javier's is has three other resaturants that we've tried and like a lot! Our recent meal was exceptional, We shared the Tapas Sampler - it was outstanding with char grilled medallions of chorzo, bacon wrapped sea scallops, marinated botija olives and fresh... More

Tucked away in a strip mall.... walk inside and welcome to Peru! The menu is varied with lots of choices and the waiter was very helpful in assisting with our selections. I had a ceviche appetizer and the house salad which was very good.... and filling. My dining companion enjoyed his choices as well. I highly recommend the Banana's Foster... More

This tidy, attractive restaurant was probably the most interesting during our 10 day trip to Florida. The owners appear to be very active in greeting, checking out how you enjoyed your meal and making the flaming deserts. The decor is very attractive and comfortable, with an entire wall dedicated to a most colorful mural depicting scenes from Peru. For dinner... More

Was over the road from where we were staying so thought we would give it a try. The service was excellent and the food wonderful. Tried some things I have never tried before (and I've been to Peru once). Overall a very good experience and I would happily go back.
