“Tasty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

What a great Peruvian restaurant! Service was great and the food superb. Great value for money and the portions were huge. Next time I'd leave the starter... I couldn't finish my main & it was delicious!! I had the tallarin saltado de mariscos. Gorgeous.

“Great Peruvian food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Both the sauteed chicken with onions and tomatoes and the poached mix fish was fantastic. The chicken was moist and the fish was prepared in a nicely flavored sauce. Nice size portions.

“South beach kick-off dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

We were first introduced to Chalan from our cab driver on our way to South Beach from the Miami airport and went here on our first night. Without a doubt, we were all extremely satisfied with our experience! From the attentive and helpful service to the deliciously authentic peruvian food, this is definitely a must-go! We started off with fresh choros a la chalaca (mussels with a salsa of onions, corn, and pepper) and fried calamari. You have to get the lomo saltado, a traditonal peruvian dish with meat mixed with onions, tomatoes, and french defitdefinitely a great intro to miami! Enjoy :) fries! It js a fresh and perfectly savory disb. The all in all, it was amazkg experience! sangria conplimented thedisg amazingly

“Ceviche had us back for seconds! ♥♥♥”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This was the best place we had dinner at during our trip. It is gorgeous.

Mixed ceviche - to die for. Please try it.
Also the fried fish with yuca (I think that's what we call cassava) - delicious.

I had never tried Peruvian food. This was truly wonderful. Fresh tasting, well seasoned and generous portions.

Lovely service too: all the staff were friendly and approachable, and when we had questions, took time to help us. I wish this were my local!

Extremely good value too. We would pay more than double for this quality of seafood at home.

“Quality , Taste and Budget in SOBE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We found this little gem through local patrons. It looked like a greasy dinner but was really so much better. Great food, great service.... Friendly fun loving staff. I have no idea what The dish was called but the .waitress said it was the most popular. Freash vibrant tasting fish with a little spice. A gentleman played guitar table side and was happy to take requests. A great night.
