We had been wanting to visit this restaurant for almost a year, but it is difficult to get reservations for weekend nights. We finally went on a week night and we were not disappointed.
Wait staff were very helpful, offering suggestions and explanations for all of the dishes.
We were quite amazed at how knowledgeable our waitress was.
For cocktails, try their Piscos- excellent and the Cava (brut) they serve is good, too.
The ceviche was out of this world- get the "Mercado" ceviche, you will not be disappointed. Very fresh fish with octopus & crispy fried calamari swimming in a light & spicy sauce. Yes- the calamari were still crispy. The dish is enough for 2 as an appetizer, but quite honestly- I would eat the whole thing myself (if given the chance). some of the restaurant's food is a blend of Peruvian & asian cooking, but it is all fantastic. Unfortunately, we were too full for dessert, so I cannot speak to that. Lovely decor and no overwhelmingly loud music, so the atmosphere was great. They also have a patio for dining/drinking.

After visiting Peru (and loving the food) last year, we thought we'd give Latin Bites a try. We were not disappointed. Specialties in Peru include ceviche, lomo saltado, and pisco sours, so we wanted to see what Latin Bites had to offer. All were wonderful! For dessert we tried the picarones (basically little donuts) and alfajores (cookies); both were excellent - as good as we had in Peru. Overall a good experience. The location is not easily accessible, and the valet parking in the strip center is a little odd... but it's well worth the trip, and a lot closer than Peru!

Highly recommended by a relative who lived in Peru. Absolute perfection- flawless service, exquisite food...artfully presented and delicious! The causitas were a work of art- almost too beautiful to eat! The cebiche del mercado was a masterful combination of flavors and texture. I cannot recommend Latin Bites enough. We have dined here several times with consistently positive experiences. They also offer a wonderful Sunday brunch.

The food is good, if a bit overpriced. The fish (pescado) and the beef (lomo saltado) tasted excellently. However, the restaurant is marred by some practices they could easily change. One, is the nonsensical use of valet parking. There is plenty of close parking, but the restaurant chooses to close it off. Second, is not allowing their happy hour appetizer prices to extend to the dining tables. It would be a way that customers could sample their expensive appetizers and decide whether to buy them next time. (The appetizers range from $10 to $20.) Unfortunately, portion size is also a problem. It is rare for a Houston restaurant to give scant portions, but Latin Bites achieves this distinction.
