It has been hard to find a good Peruvian restaurant in FL. In the tri-state, we are littered with them; one just down the street from my native home. On a trip to Fort Myers for job interview purposes, we decided to stop at this...eatery. From the outside, the restaurant looks very shoddy, however, the inside is pleasantly attired. The service we received by our waiter was nice. Mi arroz con mariscos estuvo delicisioso, lo mismo con mi chicha morada. The alfajores were a bit less sweet than typical. Not sure how fresh they may have been. They could have been better made. I would definitely be back to patronize this restaurant. It had some good food.More

My husband and I decided to get takeout from this restaurant. We ordered an appetizer of Causa Rellena de Pollo Atún (Mashed potatoes stuffed with shredded chicken, vegetables, and mayo), entree Chaufa con Mariscos (Mixed Seafood Fried Rice), entree Aji de Gallina (Shredded Chicken in...a creamy yellow sauce with boiled potatoes, and desserts flan and coconut flan. Well we ordered so we would have extra food and leftovers and we did wind up with a lot of food! Everything was so different from the other dishes and was delicious. We both LOVED all of the dishes. We can hardly wait to dine in and try some of the dishes with deep fried fish filets, etc. Highly recommend for takeout now!More

Authentic deliciousness with a comfortable setting and very friendly atmosphere. Easy area to park, pay no attention to the looks of the establishment regarding outside appearance cause the inside is nice and food is great.

We come here about once a year but now I think we'll come here more often. It has excellent service. Usually we visit with Victoria but today our wait person was Viviana. Thank you Viviana for the usual great service and excellent food. I recommend...the filete de pescado (fried fish) with a side of rice and salad. They offer two different dressings and bring lots of fresh lime for your fish. My husband loves the paella and we always bring leftovers home for dinner.More

Thank you Gabriella for wonderful service. Once in a while we go to see Victoria because we love her and we enjoy the food. We haven't been in a year because we were traveling and we spent two months in Peru. We just love coming...back to this restaurant because it reminds us of our travels and has fabulous food. It's not in an area that is well-traveled by tourists but if you are interested in Peruvian food at a very reasonable price, way less expensive than some of the fancier places, then give this place a try you won't be disappointed.More
