The name didn't remind me Peru, but when I entered this cozy restaurant I wanted to taste everything. The food is very good. The owner is very nice and very helpful describing the ingredients of each dish.

Here's a picture of my cod-fish Ceviche and Causa accompanied by a Pisco. Empanadas and Mega-empanadas were on display too but for those with time, enjoy the real deal in the pic!

One of my favorite places, especially on a grey day. It is like a little slice of Latin America served as fresh as the ceviche. Nice chilled atmosphere not least due to the very pleasant owner who is friendly and talkative without being intrusive.

Friendly atmosphere in this cosy place and with the nice owner. The food is simple but authentic, I particularly like empanadas and tamal and about the drink I suggest chicha morada or the surprising cuzquena dark beer.
