    The food is delicious! So many wonderful flavors and colors. The ceviche is divine and you must try the chicha morada. Tastes like Christmas. Polish it off with the gluten free 4 leches dessert.

    I love the mixto clasico ceviche. Recently tried the lomito saltado & was glad to know they serve vegetarian fed, hormone & antibiotic free filet mignon. Everything I've had is tasty w/ heat.

    The ceviche menu should not be missed. Ask for a side of aji with your lomo saltado!

    Great Peruvian cuisine, ceviche, empanadas, lomo saltado, and a lot more. For Sunday try pan con chicharrón! Open from Sunday to Tuesday.
