    The rotisserie is one of the best in the city. Try the chicharron de pollo; crispier, a tad more fried and just the right amount of juicy. Also, the yuca fries and the sauces they come with. Yum.

    Seated an hour past our reservation. Ordered a ton of food and it started coming out within the next 10 minutes. Delicious. Chicken, sweet potato fries and shrimp ceviche, and use the sauces!

    Amazing place! Get the sangria or the pisco for cocktail, and then start with truffle mac n' cheese! After that go with a quarter chicken, and he'll get 2 sangrias and the chicken empanadas!

    The food here is divine, come famished. Aside from the chicken, the ceviche de pescado, paella, lomito saltado, and/or pork ribs are the way to go. Great for dates and groups (downstairs).

    One of the best meals I've ever had. Flavors/Quality/Service & Price coming together for an all-around great meal! We had the 'lomito' saltado, w/ a 1/2 chicken, veggies & tacu-tacu.

    looks too crowded? it's worth checking. there's a downstairs w/ full service (& more of a lounge vibe.) but watch chefs prepare yummy peruvian food in the giant mirror upstairs if you get a chance!

  • Elaine L.

    Portions are a tad on the smaller side, be prepared to order more! Rotisserie chicken is an obvious choice - get dark meat, you won't regret it. Ceviche was surprisingly pleasant.

    Elaine Low · June 3, 2014

    Try the Chicharron de pollo - #kvpinmybelly : Crispy #chicken pieces marinated in garlic, aji and soy sauce. Served with a tangy sauce. Yum! Feels like a meal on its own.

    Kris Vera-Phillips · May 17, 2013
  • Sasha V.

    The pisco sours were way too sweet and made from a pre-made mix. Sangria was also pre-made. Ceviche had potential but it was too spicy for my taste. Looks like I should have gone with the chicken.

    Party of 10, had an 8pm reservation, probably got seated by 8:15pm, it is now 9:30pm and the waiter just walked up and asked us to leave because he has another reservation coming in!

    Limon Rotisserie's chicken is worth the drive down South Van Ness. Make sure to get a pitcher of Sangria to complete the experience!

    Pacific Union · October 4, 2013
  • Renee L.

    Don't eat here! This place use to be good but has really gone downhill. Everything was kind of bland and don't get that Inca Cola crap they try to push. Better luck at Lolinda or even Popeyes Chicken.

    Renee Leal · May 18, 2013
  • Joshua H.

    Favorite rotisserie chicken ever. Also love the chicharron de pollo. Great value and atmosphere, just make sure to get reservations since they're usually packed.

    Joshua Haftel · February 26, 2015
  • Nipun S.

    Best Peruvian restaurant in the city! Get the chicken plate, tacu tacu, ceviche mixto and the tuna tartare! Wash it all down with a delicious sangria!

    Nipun Sachdev · October 24, 2015
  • Nancy T.

    Rotisserie chicken, sweet potato fries, and ceviche. Order cocktails and small plates to share with your group. Great for special occasions.

    Nancy Tran · July 6, 2015
  • Marian E.

    For two people: get the half chicken w/vegetales saleados, sweet potato fries, cerviche mixto and tartara de tune. Sangria. BOOM. Do it.

    Marian Elbert · February 15, 2014
  • Amanda N.

    Chicharron de pollo is crispy and full of flavor. Sangria isn't particularly good (unless you really like sugar and fruit pieces mixed with red wine).

    Amanda Natividad · June 13, 2015
  • Anton S.

    I know, tacu-tacu is just beans and rice, but it's sooo good. Also, get some ceviche with you chicken. They balance each other out.

    Anton Shuster · January 14
  • Jenny Q.

    This location has a large downstairs area. The rotisserie chicken and ceviche are tender and flavorful, but I might skip the empanadas

    It may be all about the amazing chicken here, but DO NOT MISS the empenadas! Best I've yet had in the city -- especially the beef. Read more

    super rotisserie chicken. and oddly, truffle mac'n'cheese. a good place for group events too, they have a big downstairs thats quiet.

    Rotisserie chicken, fries, ceviche, pisco sour, can't go wrong with anything. Dinner wait can be a pain if no reservation.

    Gaurav B. · August 7, 2014
  • David U.

    Great chicken, Mac and Cheese plate is bomb. Mint XI drink is great! Sangria is too watered down and the service is horrible...

    David Urista · November 4, 2013
  • Timothy H.

    Share the rotisserie chicken with sweet potato fries and sautéed veggies. Pretty affordable and good for a quick meal.

    Timothy Hong · January 4
  • Amanda N.

    Definitely get the rotisserie chicken. And the chicharron de pollo. Lomo Saltado isn't bad here, but you can find better elsewhere.

    Amanda Natividad · February 25, 2013
  • Robert G.

    Good food. All they need is to serve fresh Chicha Morada. Having this delicious drink from a bottle made this Peruvian upset!

    Robert GM · April 12, 2011
  • Quirks B.

    This place is amazing! Great ambiance and staff- and the food is to die for! Must have the chicken and sangria(:

    Of course the chicken is a must. Fish ceviche and braised short ribs are also great. Lomo saltada is just okay.

    tiffany · August 10, 2014
  • Giovanna H.

    OMG the chicken & truffle mac is to die for! Also the sweet potato fries! Get a whole chicken, trust me!

  • Mario E.

    The chicken so juicy but it's the yuca side with their delicious sauces and ceviche that make my heart happy.

    Mario Estrada · August 4, 2012

    Try the 1/2 Chicken - #moist #juicy #rotisserie #chicken but the best part was the #sweetpotatofries #nomnomnom #food #sanfrancisco

    Amazing rotisserie chicken and ceviche. There're also some weird South American sodas which I don't recommend.

    Omer Zach · June 11, 2012
  • Dave C.

    The ceviche was good, though he octopus wasn't everything I'd hoped it'd be. Stick to shrimp and fish.

    Don't let yourself be seated in the basement, unless your a large party. The couch seating for threesomes especially sucks.

    Adrian Cotter · February 23, 2012

    Denis is a fantastic bartender. Try the seafood mixto ceviche and rotisserie chicken.

    Sauces are well balanced and the make sure to get the yuca.

    Rem Koning · September 5, 2015
  • Kerem C.

    Chicken alone with sangria is perfect while red meat is also awesome...
