    Give it a try. Inca Kola & Chicha Morada are two typical Peruvian drinks. If you don't like them you can always try a tropical juice, such as Mango Juice, Pineapple juice or the Passion Fruit Juice.

    Are 2 people or more? Get the fried calamary, the palta, and the "anticuchos" and then share a wonderful lamb shank as a main course. Finish it with one of their delicious desserts!!! ;)

    great quality food (ordered cow's heart appetizer, mixed seafood ceviche, and duck) & good service (complimentary samples of ceviches wrapped in a wonton-like skin and fried)!

    Save some room for a dessert. Get a couple of appetizers or just go for the main course, and then finish with any of our wonderful desserts. ;) Read more

    Did you know? We have a smaller plate of Ceviche. Try the Mini Ceviche version if you don't think you can with the regular one.

    Make a reservation- 30-45 minute waits on weeknights and Sunday. Good is delicious but the service slow.

    Great place to go and grab some wine and share amazing appetizers. Had the Mariscos and it was great; Just like a paella, but not.

    Worst service ever. Good food, but it took over 15 minutes just to get someone to bring us water.
