    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 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.

    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).

    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!

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

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

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

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

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

    Great chicken, Mac and Cheese plate is bomb. Mint XI drink is great! Sangria is too watered down and the service is horrible...
  • Anton S.
    Anton ShusterJanuary 14, 2016
    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.

    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).

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

    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.
