What a great little place. Stopped here for a bite and a margarita. Great little place on the beach. Awesome food and great margaritas. One of the workers waves his arms and a bunch of pelicans fly in for the left over fresh fish. Must stop by here!

Really nice place with great service and food! Some of our group had the oven roasted chicken and others had a burger. They have a wide selection of burgers made of Black Angus Beef with all the trimmings. Everyone was very happy with their food. Very nice bar and well stocked. Also an assortment of cold beer. It is a... More

We watched the manager cook our half Peruvian chickens in the wood fire oven. It came with fries, a salad and lemon its. We could not believe the full plate of food for the price. Best value so far. We had trouble finding it...a quaint place across from Costco. Best kept secret ever. No wait, Fast service. Excellent 10+++.

Fantastic Delicious Peruvian Chicken. I think they said it was marinated in dark beer for 14hour...Jucy with great flavors. A very enjoyable casual place for lunch or dinner.

Went to Cabana Azul which is located within Pancho Villa Resteraunt. Well, the chicken I had was to die for, succulent, moist and above all the flavor was one I'd never experienced. I found out the chicken had been marinated for 14 hours in beer and peruvian spices, we accompanied it with the vegetarian rice dish, total success. Would totally... More

Sadly, not what it used to be. The place moved to, and was taken over by the Pancho Villa Burgers down the street. We don't know the politics of this transition, but the chicken is just not the same. The guys at Pancho Villa will try to tell you otherwise, and that's a shame because Pancho Villa is a pretty... More

I am the owner of Pancho Villa Burgers, and purchased Cabana Azul from the previous owners. The purchase included a provision that the previous owner construct a red brick oven at Pancho Villa, to insure that the oven would be the exact same size and specs than the one he had at his location. He also used the same contractor... More

I hadn't been to Cabana Azul in several months so decided to go last weekend. There was a sign on the location saying they had moved West to Pancho Villa Burgers. We ordered the usual package. The chicken tasted like regular grilled chicken. It did not tast like it had been marinated. The rice was not the same as the... More

This review starts out with false information, which makes it very suspect that it is a valid review. First, the business was moved a couple months ago to Pancho Villa Burgers, but there was never a sign posted on the previous location announcing that, and the previous owners can and will verify that. .Second, Alex, the chef for the previous...

We had a taste for roasted chicken & Cabana Azul was a great choice to enjoy a special wood roasted, marinated natural chicken in PV. Cabana Azul is a special little gem, right off of the main bus route within walking distance from the bus from the Hotel Zone. The couple that owns the place is a special team to... More

We have eaten here a number of times now, and our chicken has been consistently great, much better than many other places in town. Small place without much atmosphere. They do deliver. The french fries are the best in town, but eat them while they are hot! Like all good fries they don't travel well.

We accomplish this by using the best chicken and marinate for more than 18 hours with the finest Peruvian spices and rostizandolo to firewood and coal; this gives an exquisite taste, that's why we call it proudly Peruvian Chicken. We are in charge of publicizing the best of the cuisine of Peru and we are proud to share our origin De Buena Familia.
