Very charming, comfortable dining room with incredible, authentic food! The sauce served with the bread was delicious - one of the ladies in our group bought a jar of it! Service was good too - we really enjoyed our lunch experience at El Gaucho Inca & will definitely go back soon!

Always been a fan of Peruvian cuisine so when I found this spot close to my house I had to try it . I was pleasantly surprised the lunch specials have good prices with big portions and the dinner was delicious too!

First time visit! The restaurant was clean and very nice. Very surprised how nice. We ordered off the lunch menu which runs to 4pm. Prices and the food was great. I understand the couple (owners) is from South America.

The food was exellent but the waiter was indifferent / borderline rude. The atmosphere felt unwelcoming almost like we entered a private gathering where we did not belong , both from staff and guests who spoke the language . We may be back to give it another shot, but unsure.

Just went here since it was polled as one of the top 15 restaurants in Ft Myers. I'd have to agree. It;s a Peruvian-Argentine-Italian restaurant. Very tasty empanadas, also had the grilled calamari appetizer. The Pescado a lo Macho - a fish fillet served with assorted seafood (calamari, mussels, scallops, shrimp) all in a lightly spiced cream sauce with rice... More

I love the decor of this place.  It has so many trinkets and items representative of Peru,  Argentina, and Italy.  The food here was also delicious, I got the Bistec and my wife the Churrasco.  Both of us thought our food was excellent and they give you a lot (not like most places that give you 2 yuca fries, here...

EGI serves some of the best food in Fort Myers. Not one of the best restaurants overall but the food is absolutely incredible. The restaurant is decorated well, but not so that it really contributes or takes away from the experience. Definitely oKay to come in shorts. The servers are attentive and well informed on the menu but have let... More

We began being seated by Martin and his trainee waiter. Both very professional and very friendly. Martin was warm and very amicable. Our app was a ceviche mixto and potatoes a la huancaina with a pitcher of sangria. A la carte was lomo salteado and marisco a lo macho with tacu-tacu. For dessert lucuma cheesecake. Now in English. I refuse... More

We wentwith another couple at their suggestion to try this Peruvian-Argentinian restaurant. Immediately on entering, one can see that this is a place that caters to the locals rather than tourists. The decor and the atmosphere are rather low-key, but give off an air of authenticity. The menu is extensive, highlighting the better-known specialties of both Peruvian and Argentinian cuisines....
