Outstanding and unique. Took recommendation of friends and glad we did. The service was friendly, helpful, and made us glad to be there. The food was incredible as were the drinks. They know what they are doing and do it very well. We had 3 different dishes and it was hard to tell which was the best. We spent a week in St. Louis and this was by far the best food we had the whole trip, and we had some really great food.

When we arrived around 1:00 we were very cheerfully greeted and led to a table for two by the window.
The restaurant was not busy on this Saturday afternoon, possibly because there were events going on under the arch and a Cardinals game. Also, because it was an "event weekend" we paid $10 to park right in front of the restaurant (the lot owners are not affiliated with the restaurant) and were told that $5 was the usual price. Interestingly, after leaving we saw lots advertising $4 rates, so if you don't mind a one or two block walk you may save a little cash.

Our waitress, Wendy, greeted us promptly and explained the layout of the menu- which I decidedly liked. The menu does not use terms like appetizer and salads - it starts with small hot dishes and then small cold dishes. On the back are larger plates, both hot and cold, plus accompaniments. The lack of defining terminology gives the diner the freedom to put meals together based on individual preferences and hunger / willingness to experiment. While considering our options we munched on complimentary thin banana chips with a tasty green sauce. Yum!

So, we shared two orders from the small hot plates section: 2 scrumptious little empanadas and a very good tomalito. We followed this with the antecucho triplo for my husband, which was a carnivore's delight he told me- quite a delicacy, hard to find in the US. I had a fantastic vegetable salad served on half an avocado, with fresh crisp romaine lettuce spritzed with a delicate and fresh lemon-based dressing. It was delightful! We shared an order of Yuca Frita which was so much lighter than French fries could ever be, with a much more interesting texture. They came with a gentle, rich yellow cheese spread- wow!! We also asked for an order of fried plantains, that seemed to have just the slightest taste of spicy warmth along with the sweetness I craved: excellent.

Wendy brought us the Dessert List, and told us that the owner/chef's wife makes both the flan and the chocolate cake - so how could we resist?! My husband really enjoyed the dark chocolate cake, which was beautifully presented. I liked the flan very much, and appreciated the very caramelly sauce. This flan was richer than so many I have sampled - wonderful. Dessert and coffee, pleasant conversation with Wendy, and a chance to meet Jorge Calvo, chef and proprietor, rounded out our truly lovely experience. We can't wait to go back!

I love Peruvian food and have enjoyed it all over Peru. The owner of this restaurant is a Peruvian chef and has created a beautiful, warm and sophisticated venue with superb service and food, with prices to match. The pisco sour is perfection. The yuka frita is superb. Lomo saltado is very nice. Don't bother trying a mojito. Overall it is an awesome place to dine and enjoy a drink at the bar.
