I'm no expert on Peruvian food but I do enjoy going to eat at Villa Wellington. I wouldn't call their prices "dirt cheap" as one reviewer put it, but they are definitely worth it. The portions are more than filling, the food is always fresh, the place gets pretty packed during dinner times so it might be a good idea to reserve ahead of time (although I have seen walk-ins nab a table if their timing is just right), and service is always professional and friendly.
I'm not even sure whether the food is "authentic" Peruvian cuisine but I like the things I have had. I did notice their menu shows a "Mexican & Canadian" section as well, which kind of reminded me of those Chinese restaurants that serve chicken balls, egg rolls, and moo goo guy pan, if you know what I mean~ ;)
I've only been to VW twice in my life. For mains, I've had a beef with coriander, a stew-y dish which I no longer see on the menu, another beef with coriander sauce on rice which is low on the flavour scale and comes with a massive pile of beans in a mild gravy, and their jalea which is a very popular deep-fried seafood (shrimp, calamari, and fish) dish. This is something that almost any restaurant might serve as breaded and fried seafood is surely not native to Peru.
Every meal is preceded by a basket of warm focaccia bread and butter, and a generic salad of onions and lettuce. I would not mind trying something with more spice and flavours next time but to date, I've been quite satisfied. Other diners always seem to look happy while they're eating as well.
