Foursquare Tips

  • This is one of those hidden gem restaurants. Small and somewhat inconspicuous, this restaurant offers great food and even better service. The owners are so friendly!
  • The food was very good and the owner was very nice everything was well done
  • If you like large portions of rice and french fries - with spicy foods and music - this is a place you should know.
  • From the amazing ceviche to the aji de gallina with a walnut cream sauce, this spartan place is intriguing. - Inspector
  • Ceviche! Great food.
  • Excellent Peruvian restaurant from far the best in the country.
  • Chicken Dinner....
  • Lomo Salatado (ID'd on the menu as their #1 Best Seller) is indeed very fine; also recommended: Papa Rellena and a Inca Cola
  • Great little authentic Peruvian restaurant. Can be busy, but that's a good sign of quality.
  • Besides delicious food, service is always top notch. BYOB.
  • Seco de carne like moms best pot roast. Aji de Gallina manages to be creamy & comforting but not too heavily spiced. Delicioso tamale.
  • Love it hot Soup yummy
  • Great place, reasonable prices. Fast service and very authentic.
  • Everything we had was awesome!
  • Tuesday is live music night; authentic pan flute and guitar playing such authentic tunes as "Hello" by Lionel Richie!
  • If you like french fries and rice, you have to try them together. They serve food that is uncommonly well presented and great tasting. A caution - beware of the green sauce - HOT - and I like HOT.
  • Papa a la huancaina best we've had...even better than my Peruvian girlfriend's mom's. She was also amazed by the tamales. Anticuchos could use some work though.
  • Papas relleno and lomo saltado
  • Crevice & Arroz con Maricos was on point. Green sauce was super addictive.
  • Off the beaten track, small family run restaurant worth going! Delicious seafood-ceviche, seafood rice dish (similar to paella) delicious home made sauces. Can't wait to go back try the other dishes!
