I visited Intihuasi late on a Thursday evening for a meal with my partner and parents-in-law. My father-in-law had been there before and seemed excited to share the experience with the rest of us - none of which had tried Peruvian food before. We ordered a couple entrees (somethings made of corn - can't recall the exact name, but they... More

The food was good. I had an appetizer because I wasn't very hungry but everybody else all had dinner. They all said their food was good. We visited on May 15, 2016.

Great restaurant! Service was great, and the food... awesome! I didn't expect such a great meal! It seems a bit expensive, but it's worth it! The meals were served about 10min after we ordered, pretty fast! (We were there for lunch, around 1 PM)

Excellent food, great service. Menu was well designed, some flavours were unique but non clashed. Great place for an intimate dinner or a lunch with friends. We went as a group of friends (11pax) on a sunday, oredered lots of tapas and share plates and had a fantastic experience ($850reals). Definitively recommend.

Four of us had lunch on Sunday 25 October 2015 and the meal was quite pleasant. My wife had the mixed cebiche with various types of seafood. One of my sisters-in law and I had the sliced leg of lamb with a quinoa salad and rice and the other sister had a very nice salmon dish. The pisco sours were... More

If you happen to be in Rio and you remember Peru and the great food you had there, the obvious choice is Intihuasi. In the neighborhood Flamengo, this tiny restaurant is the true representative of Peruvian cuisine. I was there with my family (3 people ) and had a great experience. To start, the Ceviches, which you can share. To... More

If the owner is Peruvian is an scamer, Or maybe he's street vendor but definitely doesn't know anything about Peruavian Food but the worst part is they charge you as you are eating in France or New York . Close that place. Understood that people in Brasil need to work but do it right.

I love Peruvian food so I went and checked out the Intihuasi restaurant with my family. The place is very small but nice. Service is good although rather distant and serious. We ordered lomo saltado, arroz con mariscos and ceviche. It was good quality tasty classic peruvian food. The problem is with the price. 50 to 70 $R per plate... More
