We stopped here over Memorial Day weekend for dinner. The dining room was nearly empty but quite clean and comfortable. Our server was very helpful and knowledgeable about the dishes and Peruvian culture. We ordered the camerones ceviche to start, which was very good. The entrées were also delicious and much larger portions than the appetizer. I had the arroz... More

We visited this place for the first time recently for a special occasion dinner and thought it was really really good. The food was authentic and unusual--don't go expecting typical "latin american" fare. One of us had lamb, the other had seafood--two very different dishes but both were incredible. Our server was a knowledgable and enthusiastic Spanish major at the... More

I have taken cooking classed in Lima and Cusco. Food is authentic and delicious! Would eat here every other week if I lived a little closer. I love that they have Inca Kola - my favorite! My only complaint - restaurant is very cold if you sit near the door, terrible draft comes in when it is cold outside.

My wife and I ordered the pollo saltado. It's out favorite Peruvian dish. It's hard to get the dish wrong. It's also hard to make it great. We've had better saltado though. Still it's good.

Come here pretty regularly as the meat is good, the wine is fairly-priced and generally very good, and the desserts are delicious.

We love Peruvian food and were really looking forward to this meal due to the good reviews; however, our meal was fine but nothing special. The Ceviche was too tart completely overpowering the taste of the fish. Peruvian ceviche comes in varied tastes. This one was low on our list. We shared an enormous portion of Jalea Inka which was...

My wife and I have not eaten before in a Peruvian restaurant. Ceviche is something I love. Their version is spicy and made with very fresh fish. Very light fish. My wife does not usually care for this dish, but here she liked it a lot. We had the blue corn juice, which was quite interesting. She had the Machu... More

This was a great discovery, and conveniently on Park St. We had lunch and the 3 of us each had dfferent entrees. I had fish, others had chicken and beef. Each were creatively done and very tasty. We each ate every last bit, even thought the servings were generous.

Outstanding calamari and shrimp dishes with rice. The appetizers with avocado were delicious. The food is Peruvian, very tasty and filling.

This is it, everyone!! For all of you who research & look over menus before you go out to eat, trust me, this is it. This was my best meal and overall experience in Madison so far. Our waitress was so knowledgable and provided tiny tidbits of history as to the "whys" behind some of the ingredients-- just enough information... More
