A Peruvian Gem

While staying in Madison near the UW Madison campus for an evening, my wife and I began our search for something different to eat. We ran across the Inka Heritage restaurant and both decided that this was the end of our search. Upon arrival on a Friday night after 8:00pm we restaurant was a bit... read more

Perhaps it was because we went on a Sunday, but our experience was very average. The ceviche was well prepared with just enough kick, and our service was solid. My paella, however, was sub par. I could've made the Spanish rice at home out of a Zatarains box, and it would've tasted the same for $20 less. Not sure I'll... More

This is by far the best Peruvian food in town. Delicious ceviche and they also have Inka Cola which is fun and unique (normally only available in Peru)

We go here when in Madison. We get the same meal each time and again we were not disappointed. I had the Arroz con Mariscos and my husband had Lomo Inka Heritage. Very delicious. Mine always has enough seafood for the whole paella. We had a reservation and it is a small place. The service was just okay so don't... More

Peruvian cuisine is the gourmet food of South America. It has deep roots in European and Mediterranean cuisine combined with Andean, amazonian and Pacific ocean ingredients and their rich culinary culture. Inca Heritage has captured a good piece of that legacy in their small menu and they deliver it with passion and modesty. Our food was delicious, fresh and felt... More

My friends and I have eaten here on many occasions. It is our favorite Madison restaurant. We have tried almost every item on the menu and every single thing is superb. The flavors of the food are somehow simple and yet complex at the same time. Heaven is in every bite. The atmosphere is also nice and every waitstaff person... More

Beautifully presented small plate servings leave lasting memories of the fine food served here. The menu features tantalyzing and unique items from drinks to dessert. You will also find friendly but skilled service and a classy but casual scene -- typical of Madison's relaxed atmosphere.

Inka Heritage is easily one of my (if not my all time) favorite restaurants in Madison! It has limited dining space and street parking, but the food is SO worth it! I come for Restaurant Week every year so that I can try more food for a decent price. This year, we came for lunch and between the three of... More
