“Cute and tasty”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Typical Peruvian fare, although there is no rotisserie chicken, served in a warm and homey atmosphere. Some of the previous reviewers are obviously ignorant of Peruvian cuisine. The food is reasonably priced and satisfying. The service is genuine and attentive. The restaurant is off the tourist track, which is nice.

The tres leches (3 milk cake) is especially recommended.

“Incan? Really?”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Okay, so we didn't have the cerviche, which actually might have been good. We had the beef lomo and the chicken lomo. The lomo was big chunks of barely-cooked onion and stir-fried chicken or beef over rice and FRENCH FRIES. Really. Not a side of french fries - it's OVER THE FRENCH FRIES. The "sauce" tasted like soy sauce. Did we get rice, french fries and soy sauce from the Incans?

The staff was very friendly and nice, the place was clean, and the wine pour was generous, but it didn't make up for a bizarre dinner.

Perpall, Guest Relations Manager at Incas Restaurant, responded to this review, November 11, 2013
Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. Our families are from Peru and these are the dishes we cooked at home over there and here, which we have shared with so many locals. There are several reviews on the dish you had, it’s a favorite amongst younger patrons especially for the fries. Just like with Mexican food the food my Mexican friends eat did not come from the Aztecs.

We do use an authentic Peruvian sauce and I am so sorry it was not to your liking. I hope you do give us a 2nd chance and do try our “cerviche,” another popular dish of many locals that can be seen in our other reviews.

“Delicious food, warm atmosphere”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We had a delightful dinner at Incas tonight. I had the lomo saltado de pollo and my husband had the same but with beef. It's sautéed with tomatoes and onions served over french fries. Everything was fresh and served hot. We could tell it was prepared right before it was served. The two different Peruvian beers we tried were really good. The service was attentive and friendly but not overbearing. Incas is a fabulous neighborhood place with a warm friendly atmosphere away from the inanity of Duval. It doesn't hurt that we live a block away! We highly recommend Incas!

“Nice ethnic neighborhood cafe”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is a nice little comfortable restaurant with authentic Peruvian menu selections. Not overly pretentious, but just upscale to the point that it has cloth napkins. We had a simple soup and salad lunch which was excellent. The food brought back memories of our time in Peru. There is a good menu selection although this is a small place and sometimes not all items will be available. The owner waited on us and was very personable talking with us about Peru. Plus,Inca Cola is available which made it worth the trip for my spouse! Away from the hustle and bustle of Duval - highly recommended for an alternative to the normal Key West touristy restaurants.
