“Solid choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

If you like, or want to try Peruvian food, this seems an authentic choice. Some of the favors are new, but our party of 6 all enjoyed their choice, and most rated as very good to excellent. Service was prompt and friendly.

“Best Peruvian food I've had outside of Lima”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

If you like Peruvian food, this is your restaurant. From the anticuchos and ceviche to the Pisco sours and Lucuma Mousse, we were in heaven. Plus, the atmosphere is festive and warm. This restaurant is a gem.

“Authentic Tiradito in a nice environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Las Canteras is, no doubt, DC's best Peruvian restaurant. The tiradito is brilliantly executed. Appetizers and main courses are adequately priced (not cheap) and portions are good size. Try the traditional tiradito and if you like fish go for PEscado a lo Macho with a superb seafood sauce.

“Heartland Girls enjoy Peruvian Fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We enjoyed the Las Canteras resturant in D.C. The peruvian dishes were excellent. The ceviche was awesome and the atmosphere of the resturant was soothing after a day of site seeing in D.C. The Pisco Sauers were also very refreshing.
