“Great food and a great introduction to Peruvian food if you are not too familiar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

My family had a terrific meal here. We don't know much about Peruvian food, and the waitstaff were very helpful. Everything we had here was delicious, and we will be returning next time we are in the area. The waitstaff were also great with my toddler son, and he loved the food too!

“terrific ceviche in a family-friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

We came here with friends for dinner and tried a lot of dishes. Hands down, the favorite at the table was “tiradito de pescado,” a ceviche. This particular ceviche was white fish marinated in lemon, cilantro, and spices, served in a yellow sauce that tasted of sweet peppers. And it was divine. The fish was super fresh, the flavors tasty. The sauce was so good we all fought to lap it up with the chewy and delicious bread served with the meal.

Others at the table enjoyed their paella. The “ceviche Acuario” sampler appetizer also got good marks. The atmosphere here was lively, with lots of families. I liked that. Service was prompt and friendly. The live music was good but too loud. Prices were reasonable for the quality and quantity. I’d definitely come back here.

“Great Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

This is the place to go if you like ceviche. I have eaten here several times. The seafood is especially good, I like the shrimp ceviche. They also have an excellent paella. The food is Peruvian and you have a choice as to how much spice you like. Chicha morada is a purple corn beverage which goes very well with Peruvian food. I hope this restaurant stays as good as it is. It is one of the best in the area.
