I was really excited about this place but in the end was disappointed. I ordered the paella and it was WAY too salty. I'm used to salty, but this was way over the top. Nice service and atmosphere but I probably wouldn't go back. Tip is included in the final check by the way.

if so, this is the place to try. Let's start with the ceviche appetizer, definitely enough for four! For the uninitiated, crevice is fish and seafood marinated in a citrus marinade. It didn't sound like something I'd order on my own, but boy was I glad I got a chance to try something different. Three of us had the shrimp... More

I have lived in Bradenton for over 16 years. I am ashamed that I did not visit El Warike when they opened 8 years ago. We were so pleased with the food and the service. The chef came out to see if we had questions about the food and offered suggestions...WOW...everything was just wonderful. Very hard to find fresh well... More

Small out of the way place that is a true gem. Always done fresh, seafood made Peruivan style but don't let the outside fool the great food on the inside. We love all the ceviche(awesome) they serve and the paella is packed with seafood. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are very ample. The restaurant has the typical... More

El Warike is tucked in a little strip mall off Cortez on 26th St., right behind Walgreen's. It serves Peruvian cuisine and I have been there several times over the past 2 years and never been disappointed. I especially recommend their corvina fish entree but everything is well prepared and delicious. Give it a try; you won't be disappointed.

I've been to El Warike numerous times and I'm surprised I never reviewed it before. This small restaurant is a nice addition to our area's roster, but, it could be easily overlooked because it's in a very small strip mall. The atmosphere is pleasant and the wait staff is very amicable, although somewhat slow at times. The food has good... More

The atmosphere was excellent with traditional Peruvian garb lining the walls. The food is amazing! We were a party of seven and each thoroughly enjoyed the food (to include our kids). The ceviche mixto, the chicken soup, the jar of passion fruit juice all make us want to go back...like now! The place is small but very inviting.

I am Peruvian and have been a regular at this restaurant since it opened. I love the ceviche and jalea they offer. We usually go to El Warike when the family is in town and are never disappointed with the service and food here.
