We had diner there with my husband and we were thrilled with our first course of ceviche. We actually had two of them, one with salmon and the other with sea bass, both of them with great taste and nice presentation. The rest of the meal was nice too, but not as exceptional. We came there early in the evening,... More

Great experience in this Peruvian restaurant, that I believe is one of the best. The service is smily, full of care and attention. The food is exquisite and generous. We had the chance to discover typical dishes and Peruvian ingredients, making us traveling straight to Peru. It's better to book !

I went there with a friend and his family and we had a great meal. Although my friends were slightly disappointed by some of what they picked, the vegetarian quinoa I took was nice enough. It wasn't groundbreaking but it did manage to make me feel like I was back in South America where I travelled recently. The fish was... More

This is a great little place. Not many tables, but well worth a visit. I had The potatoes with spicy sauce, and the chicken in a sauce. Delicious, both of them. Dessert was a fruity glace with sugar cookies. Nom nom 👍

Excellent traditional and authentic Peruvian cuisine. Love going there for lunch or dinner, reminds me of the delicious cuisine we can find in Peru. The service is professional and friendly, they make one feel at home. Flexible to make changes to the menu, add more hot sauce, replace this for that. Top ceviches, Rocotto relleno, Pisco sours, etc. Cozy atmosphere... More

The food was good, but they can improve above all the service (the waitress must be attentive, solicitous and fast) and also the quality/cost relationship, because I think its expensive for the quality of their food and the portions. If they are representing to a country with a incredible food, they should take great pains to maintain the same flavors... More

I have been searching for this dish ever since, made it myself I lot of times and sometimes even found it at some restaurant, but usually as an small starter. So here... More

The food was really good and specially it was something different. `i would strongly recommend you to go for a menu and take the assortiments, it is definitely worth the price and you will taste a portion of everything.

My partner and I stumbled across this place in the Latin Quarter on our first night in Paris. It looked cosy, packed out with diners and had numerous awards & stickers on the front window so we thought we'd give it a go. Perhaps it was a busy Thursday evening, but we waited for 15-20 minutes before we were offered... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
