This is our third visit to El Warike, and each time the food has been very good to delicious. A complimentary appetizer is "barely popped" large kernels of corn with a spicy green sauce, which are mildly addictive. The entree presentation is very nice. This time I had grilled beef churasco with shrimp picante while my wife had a marinated... More

I was driving on a Saturday evening and found this quaint place. My curiosity bested me and I was pleased. Quite and affordable but also delicious and well managed. I will definitely return!

4 of us went for dinner, the place is small and quaint, only about 9 tables and ONE server/ hostess/ busboy for the whole place. So service was rushed and missing. Food was pretty good, a bit pricey for what you get. BUT there were only 4 of us and unbeknownst to us they automatically added gratuity of $20 to... More

This was our first visit to a Peruvian restaurant and it won't be our last. The half fish cerviche was excellent.... The flavours amazing. This is one of the best meals that we have had in Florida over the last 22 years. We will definitely be coming back.

The best meal I had on my entire visit to Florida! Everything was incredibly fresh and delicious. Quality food that was truly unique. A must stop when visiting Bradenton.

Great service and delicious food. From appetizer to entry plates, this place has it all. I didn't expect to find a Peruvian restaurant around this area. They don't take American Express . Happy to stop by next time.

We went to dinner with friends who haven't dined here In two years. We tried two appetizers, fish cerviche and the corvina with yellow pepper sauce to enjoy a bit of everything. What wonderful flavors! We spoke to the chef and the compliments we shared were well received. He was humble and was pleased we enjoyed his efforts. We finished... More

Elwarike is one of my friends favorite restaurants so we tried it again last evening. Almost 3 years since we last dined here. Really not much has improved. Billing itself as a Peruvian Fish House one might think they know how to cook shrimp. Nope, the half dozen shrimp on the House Corvino were all but raw. My Tuna was... More

One waitress on a Saturday night when all the tables are filled, just doesn't cut it! Bring a red flag to get some attention. 2 of our party of seven were served their meals promptly, the rest us waited another 20 minutes to be served. One appetizer arrived after the main course meals had appeared. Having said all that-- the... More

Not much street appeal, however the food is amazing. Peruvian food explodes with flavors in every bite. Everything from the pork, beef ,chicken and shrimp was cooked and flavored to perfection at a very reasonable price.
