“tasty experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Nice and cosy restaurant in a not very popular part of Market St. The service is good and the food even better. We had delicious seafood as a starter and puffed quinoa as a main dish. It was definitely a nice and tasty experience.

“Delicious South American cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is one of my go to restaurants in SF when I visit from the east coast. The restaurant is small so you'll need to get there before or after dinner rush. The caipirinhas are strong and tasty, the food is always yummy and well-prepared. If there's one thing I'd definitely recommend it's the empanadas. They've recently changed the menu, but the jerk pork were amazing. I'm sure the vegetarian are worth a try.

“Viva Peru!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Love this place, always consistant with great service, amazing food, wonderful drinks.

Having tried all of the ceviches they offer, I can recommend them all!

Come here to learn about Peruvian cuisine and drinks. Pisco rocks.

Great place, a real asset to SF.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Every other month I throw a Champagne Friday Party for a large group of friends and I always order empanadas, fish tacos, and ceviche for about 20. Well before the champagne runs out all the food is eaten. Totally love the concept and the food has always been GREAT!!!!

“Fun, Friendly and Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

Visiting from the east coast, I had expected some great food in such a "foodie" town as San Francisco. This place was an absolute delight. From the decor, great service and fun cuisine; everything was top shelf. The food, definitely a Latin (South American) fusion experience, was uniquely fresh and flavorful.. Nothing disappointed. We tried a variety of menu items and shared (there were 4 of us)..
When the check came, we were surprised at the "value" of the dinner (even with drinks).. A great night all the way around.
