“Has lost some of its charm”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Last time we visited Miami, we loved this restaurant and have ever since remembered it with warmth. Of course, we had to visit it again, since we happened to visit Miami. It is sad, that this time, we weren't convinced. The portions have changed and I didn't experience the same party in my mouth than last time. Ceviche portions have good ceviche, but last time we somehow managed to get brilliantly designed portions of ceviche with all kind of seafood and crispy plantains and other tasty garnish on them. This time, all we got was ceviche. We even took the sample menu (which is expensive!!) and everything was good, but still missing something mind blowing. Guess memories were better than reality this time.

“Consistently good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Fresh delicious ceviche in many varieties with great service. Many other non ceviche options as well. I ordered the Seafood Orgy (mixed fish and seafood in a spicy sauce) Delicious. My friend ordered the same but couldn't have dairy. They custom prepared her dish and she enjoyed it just as much as I did. My other friend did not want ceviche. He had the chicken dish (I can't recall the name) and finished every last bite. The Peruvian corn served in many different styles is outstanding. I want to go back and try more dishes. My only suggestion would be to have some ceviche dishes served in sauces that don't contain cream.

“Great Food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Ate here with friends (4 of us) on for a week-day, late lunch. Best ceviche we've had; corvina (aka croaker or drum) specials were excellent; wine list was reasonable; desserts were unremarkable. Waiter was knowledgeable and efficient. Will definitely keep coming back.

“Excellent food but a lot of noise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Excellent food but the tables set up is very uncomfortable. People is so close to the each other than is hard to maintain a conversation without speaking loud. Perhaps the minimalist decoration in the areas and specially in the walls makes some echoes when the Restaurant is full. The place is super busy on the weekends, they should create a waiting area on the Restaurant. Other than that, Chef Chipoco is a great ambassador of the Peruvian food in Miami!

“Best ceviche and pisco sour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

I think this place has the best ceviche and pisco sour in town , which are emblematic of peruvian food
Negative comments are from people who obviously don't know peruvian food, you can tell by their poor choices
So if you like burgers and pizza look somewhere else , if you want Peruvian this is your place.... Get there early !
