Nice ambience

Came here with a friend for dinner. Service was very friendly and ambience was very nice. Space was actually larger than I thought based on the pictures online. Ordered the ceviche a la peruana, arepa con ropa vieja, vieiras (scallops), lomo saltado, gnocchi de yucca, empanada vegetariana. I... read more

We had never had Peruvian food before. We went there with our son while visiting him in SF. It was very good! Latin food different from other styles we have had, and a large variety of small plates. Yum. I would go again next time we're in SF.

An experience – some of the food was very good – some was all right – all of it was an adventure. Located in Hayes Valley, a hip up & coming neighborhood according to my friends. The décor is nice (dark red walls with large ornate mirrors hanging at an angle on the wall. It got very loud by the... More

Lovely experience, food wine and service just wonderful. Try the trio of ceviches - beautifully simple food. Lots of advice from our server and finally an amazing bottle of wine. Would love to go in a big group as saw lots of food being served that I would love to try.

This place is still incredible. My wife and I have been eating here for years, and its always great. Small dishes inspired by Latin cuisine, reasonable prices, and not too crowded. If you are visiting SF, come here. It will show you what the city is capable of, without the tourist crowd.

Nice and cosy restaurant in a not very popular part of Market St. The service is good and the food even better. We had delicious seafood as a starter and puffed quinoa as a main dish. It was definitely a nice and tasty experience.

This is one of my go to restaurants in SF when I visit from the east coast. The restaurant is small so you'll need to get there before or after dinner rush. The caipirinhas are strong and tasty, the food is always yummy and well-prepared. If there's one thing I'd definitely recommend it's the empanadas. They've recently changed the menu,... More

Love this place, always consistant with great service, amazing food, wonderful drinks. Having tried all of the ceviches they offer, I can recommend them all! Come here to learn about Peruvian cuisine and drinks. Pisco rocks. Great place, a real asset to SF.

Every other month I throw a Champagne Friday Party for a large group of friends and I always order empanadas, fish tacos, and ceviche for about 20. Well before the champagne runs out all the food is eaten. Totally love the concept and the food has always been GREAT!!!!

Visiting from the east coast, I had expected some great food in such a "foodie" town as San Francisco. This place was an absolute delight. From the decor, great service and fun cuisine; everything was top shelf. The food, definitely a Latin (South American) fusion experience, was uniquely fresh and flavorful.. Nothing disappointed. We tried a variety of menu items... More

Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
