What a pleasant surprise for us to find this delightful establishment in a Boston suburb. Tastefully decorated with a large mural of Machu Picchu behind the bar, this restaurant served a variety of authentic dishes at a good price point. I had the avacodo and quinoa salad (small meal) which was excellent, and sampled everything else that my party ordered... More

We were very excited to eat at this restaurant having been deprived of Peruvian food for months and the first impression was really good. The place has a good size, the servers were nice and attentive and the first dish we order, the Piqueo Machu Picchu was excellent. The chicharron, yuca and anticuchos were delicious with the salsa criolla. Unfortunately... More

We love Peruvian food (having visited Peru and fell in love with the food and people) and were very excited to try the restaurant. We were not disappointed. I am giving it four stars because the service was a bit slow and the portion (my fish dish) was smaller than expected. We were very impressed with the extensive menu and... More

Delicious food! I have gone here quite a few times, and ordered food from here for takeout. I have never been disappointed with a meal - everything is so good! My favorite is the lomo saltado, but I have also enjoyed Ají de Gallina, Causa Limeña, various soups, and other dishes. You can't really go wrong! :)

I always wondered why this restaurant is so crowded every time I ride by. After eating there I still didn't really understand. They did have a small band playing Peruvian music so maybe that is the attraction. My grilled shrimp with rice tastef delicious but it was very simple, nothing overly impressive. My friends weren't very happy with their beef... More

I have never had Peruvian food and it was my first time having it. And I was very pleased. The atmosphere is great. You are greeted with traditional waitress in Peruvian attire. There is a live musician playing and the decor is very authentic. You receive a bowl of semi popped corn and sauce. And it was delicious. I tried... More

Friendly service, nice location and interior. Parking is always interesting in Union Square but is manageable. Bisteck a lo Pobre (steak with an egg, plantains, rice & fries) was excellent as were the Pisco cocktails. I'll be back to this spot.

As my first time here, am not aware of what they offer, the server explanation of all my inquiries of what is this, what is that...she is very patient and honest. =) The chicken and drinks I ordered was not that extra ordinary but they surpassed my expectation when it comes to customer service.

Thank SheilaCook
