Fantastic Peruvian Food

Lovely change from the normal seafood bars in Siesta Key. Great range of quality dishes and drinks. Scallops and Bacon, and the Chinese/Peruvian fusion (sounds strange but is great) are my favourites.

We started with a Pisco sour. The service was friendly and our waitress knowledgable. The ceviche was incredible. The seafood was perfectly prepared. The owner and his wife were present and made sure we had a great experience. Don't be afraid to try Peruvian food !

Good food, friendly service, lovely décor. My parents used to go here quite a bit and they highly recommended it. Still just like they describe. A little pricey, but worth the splurge. Food is very nicely done.

Always wanted to try Peruvian food. We had a fabulous server, Pierre. He helped us make our selections and he certainly was on the money. I had Peruvian paella and my husband had duck. We were very happy with both. Best was their flan...I'm a flan lover and this was absolutely fabulous. Definitely a go to for a nice, different... More

This restaurant serves Spanish style food, which I am lukewarm about. The best thing about Javier's is Javier. He takes the drinks order and makes the wonderful Bananas Foster, their specialty dessert. We had a. very nice conversation with Javier about Peru and enjoyed his special dessert.

The place is cozy and the service is great. As for the food, it is laking flavor and punch. This restaurant is serving peruvian food but not all peruvian staples are in the menu. Prices are a bit high giving that the dishes are not up to par.

I must have had a unique experience compared to some of these other reviewers. Slow service with a frump staff. Not a great restaurant, especially if you put it up against Selva downtown.

My wife and I never had authentic Peruvian (Spanish) food. The choices on the menu just challenge you to satisfy your taste buds with these choices. The manager or owner makes the salads as you watch, very delicious!! Try the Banana dessert, you will be extremely happy.

We've been coming here for years. Javiers is almost family. Geat, friendly service. Javier and his wife are almost always on premise and the food is consistently good. Try the scallops and house salad with peas and amazing feta dressing, and hand made bananas foster. Their fish us fresh and well executed. Great date night destination.

I enjoy the Peruvian food but the treat of Javier making a wonderful Ceaser salad and bananas foster for dessert makes the meal even better.
