Live Music Great Food

Two guitarists and singer provided Peruvian ambience to excellent food. Great variety and authentic recipes at reasonable prices. Bring your own booze and prepare to take home from very ample servings. Parking easy in store front setting. Simple setting but great food and friendly courteous service!

My family and I ate here on May 5th after my brother's graduation. I was kind of skeptical when we arrived because I've never had Peruvian food and the outside of the little stip mall area wasn't too appealing to the eye. However, as soon as we walked in I felt at home. Everyone was nice and plesant. And the... More

While on North Western university tour, felt hungery. Looked up and found this place. Sounded interesting, reviews were good too. We drove about 15 min to this place. It is located in a busy strip mall, not a very nice location but food is excellent. I ordered the peruvian style see food gumbo. It had crab lag, shrimp, kalamari, meseles,... More

If you are looking for an authentic peruvian restaurant, this is the place to go. If you like gourmet peruvian, then stay in the city. The location is not the best but food is great! A bit far from the city (25 min) with traffic.

We were looking for eating Peruvian food in Chicago,were it seems that there are few Peruvian restaurants. This restaurant has a good menu, including sea food. We liked the ceviche and the tiradito. I really enjoyed the chaufa rice. You could bring the Pisco and they will prepare a Pisco Sour for you, for a little price. Peruvian food is... More

I had the Rib eye stake served with eggs, beans rice and fried Plantaines. we also enjoyed three other dishes and two appertizers. The owner is on site and is first to explain... More

Great Menu, they are very honest with their specialties, if you ask them what is good they will tell you. BYOB, so be sure to match with a south-American wine, we drank Argentina malbec with our steak dinner. The owner Cesar came and talked to us about his wall of fame and shared his childhood fishing stories. I feel good... More
