“We were ripped off”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Just off a long flight and jet lagged - staying nearby at Hotel Orly - had dinner at this establishment on 9 January 2013 - the bill for 2 came to 11,900 Chilean peso plus mandatory tip of 1,900 making 13,800. Took bill to counter to pay using Amex credit card with pin - gentleman behind the counter keyed in data but this info DOES NOT SHOW ON HAND-Held credit processing machine. I key in PIN number and put receipt in wallet WITHOUT CHECKING IN DETAIL-find when checking accounts on line the next day that this restaurant had debited US$190 to my account - ripped off by $165. My lack of attention to blame but this con was attempted again at a restaurant the next day but by that stage we had woken up to the scam. Lesson - pay with small notes in cash when eating at such dodgy establishments and don't attempt to support the local community when in a jet lagged state.

“Authentic Delicious Peruvian Cuisine”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

As a frequent traveller to Chile I often find myself dining at Peru Gotoso for it's delicious and authentic peruvian cuisine. The dishes are healthy portions and very reasonably priced. Service is very friendly too, the menu is in Engish and Spanish which is great. The servers however do not speak Engish so come prepared with a little bit of basic Spanish. Wifi is available and sometimes I will use Google Translate if I have trouble getting what I want. You will not be disappointed in the fare.

“Good Peruvian food”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

The food seemed to be homemade, very comforting and warm. The place was somewhat wacky, decorated with colorful and bright gadgets, very flamboyant. The air was filled with popular music from the radio.

“Great little place”
Reviewed June 14, 2012 via mobile

Visited this restaurant on suggestions from friends. They offer a wide array of Peruvian dishes and have a great fixed menu deal, although we did not choose that as it's dinner for two. The staff was very nice. Only complaint was that thr service seemed very slow and their were only about half a dozen patrons at the time.

Their tres leches dessert was out of this world!

“best ceviche ever!”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

I wanted peruvian ceviche, I got the better than I could ever imagine.
I had the peruvian gustoso ceviche...
it was a fiesta of tastes!

The sides: Grilled vegetables were a little to cooked

if you're tired of eating steak, it's the perfect place to go.

They have a lunch special every day, 4000 pesos (8$ cnd) for a drink, appetizer, main and dessert.

A little difficult to communicate withe the service staff, my spanish is not up to par.
