“Really good Chaufa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

We went in a business lunch, I had pass in front of the restaurant many times but never paid attention to the place, but I had a really pleasant surprise today. The view of the exterior tables in really amazing, really good view of Lindora and Belen, additionally the food was delicious the Pikeo we ordered as entrance was really good, and the Chaufa I ordered was also really good. Even the rocoto was good. The service also was really good, a place to recommend in Escazu. Not expensive at all.

“Fusion Peruvian food with a panoramic view of the central valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

I beg to differ with the review that gave this a bad review. First the restaurant has only been open a month so the new staff is learning the menu. Second the owners have learned from the "Masters of Peruvian food" as they are the sons of the owners of Machu Picchu in San Jose. Third, by incorporating "New Generation Fusion" the food has a delightful twist on flavors. I had the Causa limena with tuna and it was excellent. My friend had the Lomito Salteado (her favorite dish) and there was just a tad left to bring back to her husband to taste.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

This is the worst restaurant I had ever tried in my life ! The food was horrible ! We could not believe it ! Iam still thinking how they can call that Peruvian food! The staff did not know nothing about the menu !
I won't recommend it to anyone !
Is also too expensive for the quality of food
