We found this restaurant by chance while driving through Lee. Peruvian cuisine sounded different and way more interesting than pizza or burgers. It exceeded our expectations. We both had Pisco sours which are a typical Peruvian drink - yummy, not too sweet or too sour, just right. One of us had the seafood paella the other a roasted cod dish, both very flavorful, attractively presented and sufficient in quantity. Service was very friendly and warm, nice atmosphere. Great to have some ethnic diversity in town.

This restaurant drew us in because we were looking for a quiet place on Sunday afternoon, after the Tanglewood concert ended. We were seeking both salad and fish options. The outside is nothing like the inside - inside it is elegant, clean (with a sparkling modern bathroom!) with professional waitstaff and an excellent chef. We asked for a modification of one of the dishes on the menu, due to food allergies, and they were extremely accommodating and even gave us a choice of alternative preparations. Then the food came, and wow! My friend enjoyed a very fresh and interesting salad, and I had a pasta, onions, and peppers dish that they modified to add fried Tilapia to, and we ate every morsel! We also ordered caramel flan for dessert, which was less sweet than we are used to, but still light and beautifully presented as well.

Overall, this is a 5-star experience! I highly recommend this place (but it has a limited menu, so please check the listing) - except for families with kids. The only thing missing is that my friend wanted some bread, and that's not a Peruvian food, so they do not serve it, only rice, plantains, fried corn, etc.

Food was fine, nothing bad, but wasn't particularly special. Nice relaxed atmosphere.
Went for lunch... can't speak for dinner.

I brought my mother and had the ceviche and seafood paella. I've been hooked ever since. It's really nice to have a restaurant like this around to try new things. My boyfriend and I tried beef heart recently and not only was it delicious, he had bragging rights for weeks.

We were looking for something different to eat as we were passing through Lee and found this little Peruvian restaurant. Nothing special to look at, but the food was delicious and authentic. We started with the Ceviche de Pescado (fresh and tasty) which was served with a side of fried corn kernels. This was not popcorn, but large corn kernels that remain in tact after frying with just a little salt on them...YUM...these were addictive! We could not stop eating them. For our meals we tried the Pescado en salsa de Camarones and the Bisteck Encebollado - both fresh and delicious.

We would definitely recommend stopping by if you're in Lee...and ask for a side of those corn kernels!
