Fantastic peruvian Cuban cuisine.

The ceviche de pescado was one of the best I have eaten, I eat a lot of ceviche so trust me. I had the Aji de gallina, loved it, large portion with a side of rice. Wife had Ossobusco which was a huge shank and so tender. Too much to eat here had to take half home. It was very... read more

My family and I are from out of town, more precisely from Montreal, Canada. Even if we were on vacation, we wanted to properly celebrate las "fiestas patrias" by putting on Peruvian wear and eat typical Peruvian food. We were very happy with the experience. Great service by the owner herself, Emma Perez, and her team, always eager to please... More

Excellent latin food, not the most affordable one, but it doesn't disappoint! Make sure to visit with patience because the service can be slow. I recommend the ceviches, lucuma ice cream and alfajores.

Very good ceviche and fresh fish. For a party of 5 people they offer you the gratuity. The cocktails are also very tasty. Peruvian friends recommended me this restaurant and it is true it's one of the best. The desserts are also very good.

Came here last night after reading rave reviews on yelp and other places. Our sangria was VERY heavy on peach shnapps, mixed ceviche was very good, but 1 shrimp?!? Lomo Saltado was overcooked and tough. I've eaten in some great Peruvian restaurants and this ain't one of them!

This is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant that's in an unassuming strip mall. The food is delicious and the cost is low. I highly recommend this little gem.

Great flavor to the food -- chicken, empanadas, the sauces and tacu tacu particularly. The restaurant is not loaded with atmosphere, but the food is good enough that it doesn't matter. It is very crowded each time we have been for dinner. We have been several times as it is a good "go to" casual Peruvian restaurant.

We can't say enough nice things about this restaurant. The manager was so friendly from the beginning to the end of the meal and our waiter, Javier, was outstanding. He was knowledgeable about all of the dishes on the menu and was able to recommend both a beer for my husband and a traditional Peruvian drink for me. On his... More
