We had a nice meal here, quite big portions and decent amount of flavor. Food was not outstanding but not bad also. We ordered pisco sours (Peruvian cocktails) and they were almost same price as dishes -17chf ouch!

We randomly chose this restaurant as it was in the area and as we thought Peruvian food is something we did not eat for a long time.
Well, it was OK and the portions super big! That's something really to highlight. Didn’t eat such big portions in Geneva yet.

However, the food is OK - standard. I had pasta with chicken, Peruvian-style with soja sauce (Not 100% sure if it really was Peruvian). It was a bit salty and taste-wise not an experience.
Also, service was below average. We waited for ages until we could order. The same was true for the bill. It took more than 15min before we could pay!
Money seems to be somehow irrelevant.

Overall, if you like big portions for a quite reasonable price (35CHF per person inclusive drinks) in Geneva and if you are OK with average food, then you can go there.
Otherwise you find much better restaurants in the area; and even not that much more expensive.

I think this place would do more business if the restaurant name alluded to the Pervuvian menu (which is extensive).
The Ceviche is very good (very large portions though, so maybe go for the starter size), the Octopus-Black Olive stew is delicious (but quite rich, i suspect a lot of butter in there) and the desserts look great also.
Service is fine (nothing outstanding).
Is a good spot for a Friday night dinner with friends (the two large tables tend to over the place, not great if there's just two of you looking for a quiet meal).
I look forward to going back!

Great peruvian food, charming staff and cozy ambiance in Plainpalais. Dishes are served abundant, so could be a good option to share a main dish and order two entries. Don't miss the "ceviche".
Excellent value for money!

I ate here several times, and I had mixed experiences. One time the food was really good, but the other 2 times it was just average. Also service is not always great. So you need to be a bit lucky. I don't think I will go there again, it's not worth taking the risk.
