First time we tried Peruvian food. We both have seafood combination but different sauce. Very tasty. Their bread was fresh and good with green hot sauce.

The absolute best!!! The owner's and staff are just simply amazing along with truly authentic Peruvian food. Family recipes passed down and full of the most incredible flavors created in house. Been to both locations and enjoyed both restaurant experiences. Truly epic Ceviche I still...rave about and is my favorite. This is family style at it's core and highly recommend!!More

Very nice lunch with friends. Tasty food and good size portions. The service was also friendly. I can recommend Chalan in the beach!

Stopped here on a South Beach Food Tour. Great tasting Peruvian food: ceviche, Peruvian corn and sweet potatoes. The Lomo Saltado was especially great: marinated steak with onion and tomatoes, served with french fries and white rice.

We came here after being put off by food on Lincoln Rd. The house special (sauteed steak, fries, onions and rice) was delicious and we had the chicken style curry, was full if tender shredded chicken but tasted a bit like a korma. Perfectly nice...but nothing special. Well worth a visit and just up from a good sushi place too and a couple blocks off South Beach so is in a good location. Staff were friendly and the drinks were reasonably priced. 2 mains and 2 soft drinks came to $40 plus tip on top which I found well priced for the area.More

There really is nothing wrong with Chalan on the Beach - just so to make the statement clear right away. The service is friendly, the prices for Miami Beach fair and everything is clean, so no problems here. It is just that we maybe expected...something more of the food ordered or maybe had too high expectations after reading about the restaurant on Tripadvisor. How to interpret this review? We had a solid, satisfying dinner and served by very friendly and hard working people. Good "everyday" restaurant!More

We were looking for a restaurant near the beach and both love ceviche. A quick google search and we were headed to Chalan. Food was great, service awesome. Highly recommend this to anyone who like a restaurant that's low key and comfortable.

Unassuming exterior with an excellent menu. Super ceviche. We could have made a meal out of ours. Excellent seafood.

This place seems to fill your plate with carbohydrates and low quality meat. Nothing much to like about the food, service or wine. Was £40 a head which may be below average for South Beach but hard to see why this place gets such good...ratings.More

no sorry it's actually deceiving with its name. it's probably two blocks from the beach and only indoor seating. but I still classify this as one of the best meals in Miami south beach. in price and freshness...
