“Fantastic Cultural experience”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

All Spanish food isn't Mexican, and this is the place to widen your horizons. I began my meal with a guanabana smoothie and tostones. This food rivals my mothers cooking, and that is saying a lot! My group also had mango smoothies, which I tasted, and could taste the freshness in this flavorful drink, as well. My order of ceviche was tasty and filling. The original flavors came out to kiss my tastebuds to a new level. The sauces that the foods came with were varied and mouth-watering. Give this place a try, and then go back to try each dish at least once. Enjoy!

“Pleasantly Surprised!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went to Rocoto's for lunch with a co-worker, and I was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is located in a strip mall so I was under the impression that it was going to be more "fast food" than gourmet. The place was very clean and the food was excellent. Had the "pollo en salsa rojo" and it was delicious. Comes with your choice of rice and salad. Not a lot of food but, it was enough for the lunch special price. Very Good!
(This review may look like a duplicate but, I accidentally signed in with a different email address the first time.)
Went back again, on a Sunday after church with a big group and it was still excellent!
