Intimate atmosphere with friendly service. Shared the Peruvian salad to start. First time for me for hot greens and enjoyed it. We both ordered the meriscos al vapor. Spicier than the typical clams and mussels. We both enjoyed them. For desert my partner had the...More

Had the mixed brochettes and it was delicious! Tender steak and juicy chicken. This was my second visit. My first visit I had the shrimp and guacamole with chips. The fried tortilla chips are the best I've ever had AND I LIVE IN CALIFORNIA!!!

This is apparently one of the city's favorite Latin American restaurants. It is medium sized and has a relaxed, trendy ambiance. We ordered a Peruvian salad and a mixed grill. The mixed grill, with a tiny amount of grilled meat, was tasty but very much...More

Wonderful ceviche, fresh and tangy and plentiful. The mains are solid - nicely spiced and tasty - there's always a special menu with good variety. We come here often in the summer to enjoy the patio.

We went here for a birthday with a group of 5 people. It's a very small restaurant which makes for a quaint atmosphere but we felt a little cramped. Definitively make a reservation. Food was extremely over priced for the quality and quantity. While it...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
