My husband and I were looking for something light and tasty, and this little Peruvian fusion restaurant really delighted us! My husband had the meatballs which were just delicious. My salad had all sorts of crunchy, yummy ingredients. Definitely recommended!

We came across this by chance and felt very lucky. The food was delicious, especially the salads. The staff were friendly, and so was the atmosphere. We highly recommend it.

This restaurant is doing everything right:
- The food is original, tasty and well presented
- The service is warm and friendly, with a special compliment to the very nice owner
- The decor is modern and tasteful
- The atmosphere relaxed and friendly (the Dutch would say "gezellig")
- The location is ideal for several movies and theaters, as well as for a romantic walk along the canals
- Price / quality is great for Amsterdam
It was our first visit but will definitively not be the last.

We popped into Mashua to escape a heavy shower and while we only had a coffee and shared Lemon Tarte, we were impressed by the friendly staff, the warm modern interior and the whole feel of Mashua. Friends who have returned from a trip tp Peru have recently introduced us to Pisco Sour and spying a display of Pisco alerted us to the Peruvian influences in the restaurant. Maybe next time we will have time to stay longer.

we went there for an early diner 5.30pm as we were flying out later on. that wasnt planned at all but as all the other places were serving from 6pm we just went to the 1st place we saw that looked nice.
the decor is warm, atmosphere pretty relaxing at this time of day.
service very friendly and professional
wine was very good for little price, so already good surprise.
when the starters arrived, the flavors, the way the meat was marinated, it was SO good.and so were the mains and desserts.
gutted i live in london cause i'd go back to that place very often.

i warmly recommand it.
