When you walk into Cora Cora, you are greeted by a life-sized llama. No, it's not real, but it is memorable. And so is the restaurant. All of the bounteous dishes are fresh, made-to-order,and really delicious. The bright yellow Incan Cola may be an acquired taste, but I could get addicted to the air-puffed salted corn and green sauce that... More

Not too many Peruvian/Latin food places around, so this is a welcome break from other cuisines. The Cau Cau De Pollo is a delicious stew-like dish. The mixed grill appetizer is so tasty, but you may need to be brave to eat beef hearts, chicken gizzards, and tripe!

When I want a very good but somewhat out of the ordinary meal in West Hartford, one of my favorite places is Cora Cora. Although the neighborhood (New Britain Avenue and Shield Street, on the Hartford side of the railroad tracks) is hardly upscale, the food, the service and the atmosphere are worthy of West Hartford Center. Peruvian food is... More

No better place in town to enjoy Peruvian cuisine. A very complete menu in a pleasant environment. Restaurant is in a shopping plaza with ample parking. Interior decorated tastefully albeit with Peruvian ornaments, Alpaca wall hangings, pleasant music and TV screens showing typical scenes of the country. Tables nicely presented with side plates and napkins. Water is served immediately from... More

We love Cora Cora. We had not visited in a while, and went back on Friday evening. We were again not disappointed. The food was outstanding. We had the signature Peruvian dish Chicken Brasa (roasted whole chicken, french fries and salad), a delicious cerviche dish and Chaufa De Pollo (cooked fried rice with a variety of additions). We enjoyed a... More

Really good food that is different than what you will find anywhere else. A very broad menu that virtually guarantees you will find something you like with a Latin/Peruvian flair Fresh seafood was terrific and reluctantly tried the special Peruvian ice cream and were rewarded with a very special treat unlike anything else You have to try it.
