If you like eating in strip malls, this restaurant is right up your alley. The food is good, I wouldn't say it's spectacular but satisfactory. I enjoyed the tapas, they had a nice variety. I had a cilantro risotto that was a little overboard on the cilantro but the risotto was a nice consistency. No hard liquor sales which was... More

Conveniently hidden in a strip mall, Javier's is a cosmopolitan place with many wonderful choices of appetizers, dinners, desserts, and wines. Interesting taste combinations, wonderfully cooked. Truly excellent. Unique and not a chain restaurant, with quality ingredients well prepared and tastefully served.

This small restaurant is charming and cozy, with good food at reasonable prices. On a Friday evening it was full with older couples, groups of ladies and families with young adult children. Service was attentive. We had the four course fixed price sampler which gave us a nice variety of tastes. Definitely save room for the bananas foster! Try the... More

This is a little gem hidden away in Siesta Key. The service was spot on (each course followed perfectly after each other with no waiting), food incredible and beautiful setting. We loved this place and will return for sure the next time we are in Siesta Key. It is very rare to have such a wonderful experience but Javier has... More

Wanting to try something new on our vacation and share this with some local friends, we tried this. Had gone online and clipped an internet coupon for 20% off. It is a Peruvian/American restaurant and wine bar. That being said I need to make a note that it is not a full bar. Wine is the main emphasis but they... More

What a nice place to have a meal. Owner Javier is a friendly greeter at the door. He makes the Caesar salads and the bananas foster with flare! Great food if you've not tried Peruvian before. Will be back.

the location is very convenient to the beach at Siesta Key. The atmosphere is very nice and comfortable. The service was excellent. The Sangria is the best I have ever had. The Arroza con Marisco was excellent. The seafood was very fresh. It was loaded with shrimp, scallops, mussels, calamari and fish. It was sort of between a paella and... More

Each dish was wonderful, large and yummy. We especially liked the ceviche. Service was good, but a little slow at the end. The atmosphere was not up to date.
