After a day on the beach we decided to venture into get some unique food that we cannot get at home. This is a family run Peruvian restaurant where the owner takes pride in what they do. They have great fish and beef plates with great spice and hot sauces that you may or not add to accentuate your palate.... More

My friends had never eaten Peruvian food, so going to the Chalan was a no brainer. Our waitress was very helpful in explaining the different dishes on the menu. Two of us decided to get the Lomo Saltado, which is a Peruvian Specialty, consisting of sautéed flap meat mixed with onions, tomatoes and french fries (no, I cannot explain how... More

We visited Chalan on the Beach for dinner after liking what we had during a food tour. The menu is interesting but still accessible enough for less adventurous eaters and the pricing was not cheap but was certainly reasonable, particularly for Miami. The seafood dishes stood out as particularly fresh, the ceviche in particular was outstanding, the best we had... More

Very popular spot for good reason. The menu is endless and the food amazing. I've not had to ask for a salt or pepper shaker once and believe we've dined there twice now. HUGE servings so definitely think sharing if your first visit. They can get a little backed up from time to time, so patience at times with the... More

Looking for an adventure while shopping in the Lincoln Road area of Miami Beach? This is the place! I've never had Peruvian food and decided to check this place out. The menu is posted outside so you can decide if the cost is right for you. We went in and were seated quickly and kindly, the waiter was full of... More

I had what they called: Aji de Gallina, but it was not done properly. Aji de gallina is shredded chicken not chunks of chicken. Flavor was average.

This is not a cheap eats, I want to start by saying that as many sites suggested it was. We did love our lunch though. We had some beers and a fantastic seafood lunch. Great service and a trendy spot made for a wonderful dining experience.

Visited this place on a highly enthusiastic recommendation from our hotel concierge. His championing of Chalan was well warranted. It's excellent! Modest and unassuming from the outside, if I'm honest, had I not booked in advance, it's somewhere I'd have walked past in favour of somewhere more aesthetically appealing. Inside, it reminded me of a classic holiday restaurant - complete... More
