Had a seafood focused dinner with the cold appetizer, the soup and a rice pudding flan dessert. The pisco sour capped it off.

The worst service and awful food! I ordered anticuchos and they smell so bad we couldn't eat it. We tasted it and it was like chewing plastic but the worst was the smell. We asked them to change it and they said there was no more anticuchos... (we were the only ones in the restaurant ) So we decided to... More

A very tasty churrasco dish. My son who lives there recommended the restaurant because he had been there before and enjoyed it. We will definitely go there again.

After a long trip we had an excellent dinner, refined in taste and not too heavy or spicy, in contrast to what is common in the US. The general atmosphere was relaxed, with pleasant latin-american music. The service is friendly and the clientele mixed. We will certainly come back and enjoy the cocktails.

Good spot if you want to be adventurous and try Peruvian food. Food was a bit on the bland side, but reasonable prices and attentive waitstaff. Pisco sour was excellent.

I haven't had Peruvian food in that many places, and when I do, I basically always order the same 2 things: Ceviche and Seco de Carne. For the uninitiated, that's seafood "cooked" in citrus, and beef braised in a cilantro based sauce. Both of these things come out consistently well every time we dine here. The portions are generous, and... More

Very disappointed. The food was dry and flavorless . We ordered chicharron and anticuchos. The chicharron was from days before and it was reheated. Then we ordered tamal and papa rellena, they were dry and old as well. I just came back from Lima. Peruvian food has flavor and it is fresh . This was " Peruvian wanna be ".... More

We were looking for a change of pace, and had heard about this Peruvian restaurant and we went on a Friday night. We were very happy with the choice. We had never tried Peruvian food before and we found the selections to be varied, interesting, and tasty. As a bonus they had live music as well, and it was a... More
