Service was very slow, though nice people.

“Good food, small portions, bit expensive”
Reviewed July 4, 2011

I think this is the best Peruvian restaurant in Paris.

However, they have adopted the bad French custom of giving tiny portions, and charging a high price.

“Won't be going back”
Reviewed June 17, 2011

Service the slowest I have ever encountered. Food bland - lack of spicing. Not particularly cheap (19 for my main course). What can I say?

“Authentic Peruvian food with a French flair”
Reviewed April 16, 2010

This small restaurant close to Rue Monge and the Jardin des Plantes serves delicious Peruvian food that is artfully presented. I lived in Peru for 3 years and was delighted to sample the menu offerings. It is a very small restaurant but the waitstaff were friendly and helpful. The ceviche was delightful, the main dishes delicious, and desserts were innovative. It is located at 9 rue Lacepede, [--]and has a web site: www.picaflor.fr.

Reviewed March 16, 2008

Small Peruvian restaurant next to Place Monge. At lunchtime, one can have the course of the day, a first and a dessert course for 9 euros. Courses selected in the menu are more expensive (30 euros/pers) but however more original and fine.
