New tastes to try

This place in Fillmore was a great find, we asked the waiter for his recommendations and were not disappointed - amazing tuna ceviche, a tasty potato and crab dish, pulled chicken and rice, and Peruvian wontons. A great dinner experience.

I am a sucker for Peruvian food. So I stopped in here for lunch. When I walked in the restaurant, I was the only one there. I had to ask if they were open. They said "yes" (or "si") and I sat down at the bar. I ordered a "pulled pork" style sandwich and a beer. The sandwich was tasty... More

We visited Fresca after walking round the de Young Museum and Golden Gate Park and had a really nice lunch. We went on a sunday so it was only the brunch menu available however there were a good range of sandwiches and stews to compliment the more breakfast-like dishes. My mum had the braised pork shoulder which was absolutely to... More

I had a vegan dish that was outstanding so I can only imagine what the other entrees taste like. The family next to me didn't leave a crumb on their plates so I think we were all pleased. I have visited Peru and enjoyed the food immensely. Fresca brings these dishes to San Francisco. You won't be disappointed.

An very relaxing busy restaurant that serves great tasting plates for their various cerviche and also does an excellent duck breast with coriander rice. Fresca also has an excellent selection of wines. Suggest booking in advance as this is a busy restaurant.

Bland food, large wine glasses, noisy. For a while they offered "bottomless" mimosas for brunch -- I hope that's over. A decent place for a quick bite, but don't go out of your way.
