“Great Peruvian Food in San Sal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

A very nice restaurant with excellent service and top quality food. At the top of the cost range, but few places in San Salvador are inexpensive. Seafood and steaks are excellent quality and the peruvian dishes are authentic (that's coming from my friends who lived in Peru for several years.) Wine assortment is first rate, but again not inexpensive. Expect $50 pp, more if you splurge on expensive wines and add dessert. Small bar in a separate area near the entrance seemed dark and not inviting.

“A treat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Waiters tried to push the dearest wine available but the food was a joy. Stuffed squid was delicious - mixed platter to begin was also very good. Fish was wonderfully fresh - really good although not cheap.

“Peruvian food and a lot more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

This restaurant paints itself as Peruvian cuisine, but it definitely offers a lot more. The seafood was superb and the dessert I had (Manjar blanco) was absolutely amazing. One of my favorite restaurants in El Salvador!
