Foursquare Tips

  • The criollo tiradito at Tanta is one of the 100 best things we ate this year. http://tmout.us/rLOtk
  • Since opening in mid-August, Gaston Acurio's first foray into the Midwest has drawn rave reviews and buzz from diners and media. It's no wonder he's one of the most renowned chefs in the world.
  • The meat empanada is incredible! Great rooftop al fresco dining option and creative mixed drinks.
  • You cant go wrong with anything in this menu, but if you think you had good octopus...well, you haven't tried this anticucho!
  • Authentic Peruvian dishes and beverages..
  • Delicious!!!
  • Try the ceviche mar y tierra, lomito saltado and the quiche pastel de acelga! Deli and excellent value for money!
  • Everything was delicious!! Must try the causitas boat, ceviche sampler, and the pisco punch. If you like spicy drinks, el chingon is really good.
  • If this is not your first Peruvian restaurant you may be very disappointed. Great atmosphere, great service, but mediocre food at best.
  • Arroz criollo is very flavorful
  • Caroline was our server and she was wonderful.. Must have the tasting ceviches, pork fried rice and the Pescado Frito . Everything was excellent... Topped off with the short bread cookies desert!
  • The Adobo De Ternera (veal cheek) was definitely the highlight of our meal. The pulpo (octopus skewer) and criollo (ahi tuna and squid niguiri style) were also wonderful
  • Amazing food that's different from anything else in River North. Doesn't hurt that they play Latin house music either. Try the Street Food Feast for a large sampling of things!
  • Omg. Get the octopus and veal cheeks and pork fried rice. Amazing. Everything was so good.
  • See Stacy at the bar before you get your table, awesome!
  • Best new place in town!!
  • Get the pisco sour! The appetizer sampler is very good and filling.
  • Truly fantastic food. The Pork Fried Rice is an absolute must. Other absolutley delicious dishes were the beef empanadas, Nikei Cheviche, and Caucitas Tasting. Big portions & perfect for family style.
  • Brunch dishes were very good with great presentation. Shame they were cold!
  • The desserts are awesome! The drinks are tasty but weak. The picarones are delicious. Overpriced and crowded.
