This Peruvian restaurant had good food, very tasty, fresh and well prepared. The menu is limited, but it works for this tiny restaurant. We also enjoyed a nice bottle of Argentinian Malbec which was a nice pairing for the lamb dish my wife had and the Lomo Saltado beef dish that I had. I was surprised that our "mozo" (waiter, in Peruvian Spanish) was a young, red haired gringo. This is the first time I have ever gone to a Peruvian restaurant that had non-Peruvian staff. No big deal.
Oh, yeah, that one little thing....This is to management. I am SERIOUSLY trying to help and not be mean, but the carafes the water was served in were NASTY looking. Wash the outside. I just left the water sitting on the table. Even in Peru, I have never seen anything that gross. The water and the vessel in which it is served should be crystal clear. The lemon slice should be on the rim, not in the water. Give the customer the option.
Someone mentioned in another review that the bread pudding was soggy. We had it and it was very nice, not soggy at all, but it IS bread pudding. To that reviewer, I say, "Pudding, duh. Traditionally a bit soggy is permissible."
We tried unsuccessfully to get an order of ceviche as an appetizer. I guess Big Red was overwhelmed being the only mozo on staff at the time. Management: That would have added $17 to our bill. What we did manage to get was very good and we enjoyed the sidewalk dining experience, even though we had to find something else to do for an hour while we waited for the Café Secret to open for dinner.
