Reviewed June 28, 2013

You get them now and then when sharing with your wife or family. We went to Trader Joe's but saw the sign just south of the back of Trader Joe's parking lot, and we like to try new food and experiences. The waiter had charisma. The food was very good. Next time, I think we will make a day of it and go to breakfast, the Outlet Mall, Trader Joe's, and then Inkanto or in some order of that.
Not cheap but the calamari was the best I've had. The rice and beans I want to make at home somehow. My wife enjoyed a vegetarian quinoa dish which was very good. (I shared a bite).
Not cheap but not expensive. A gem of a moment. We will go again.

“Awesome Upscale Peruvian Restaurant”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

What an amazing dinner my husband and I had at Inkanto. It is hard for us to eat out because we are vegan, and we do not have many choices in Sarasota. I have to say that this restaurant has 7 different vegan/vegeterian options, and they are delicious. I can't wait to come back and have the 5 course meal wine tasting. I totally recommend this place to all who want to experience delicious peruvian food

“Wonderful experience from beginning to end!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We are lucky to have many Peruvian restaurants in Sarasota. None have compared to INKANTU. It was fresh, flavorful, authentic and service was great. Multiple Ceviches selections and Corvina special along with appetizers were perfect. We are returning time and time again! Wish we had saved room for dessert.

“Awesome!!!!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

This place is amazing!!! We are happy to say the food and wine were all superb! The fish and seafood was fresh, prepared perfectly, tastes were authentic and each dish was beautifully presented. If you want to end on a traditional Peruvian-flavored dessert, try the Lucuma dessert (Suspiro de Lucuma or Lucuma Ice Cream). It's delicious!! The decor and atmosphere is lovely and could not be any better. You feel like in Peru. Service is wonderful and very helpful. We highly recommend Inkanto,
can't wait to return.

“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

The food was great with large portions though it was a little pricey. The ceviche and tres leches are a must if you try this restaurant. My boyfriend was a little disappointed because they didn't have the entree he wanted to order and instead went with one suggested by the waiter which turned out to look and taste like a chinese dish of beef with lomaine. Overall our experience was very nice and we will return to try more of the menu along with my favorite the ceviche and tres leches :)
