Food was decent, customer service was not professional, waiter was extremely loud and speaking "street". Would go back only if nearby.

Excellent Peruvian food in nice ambient with very nice staff. Causa limeña is excellent. Much better than some French restaurant nearby.

El Chalan offered excellent dishes, I tried causa rellena and aji de gallina and they were delicious. My son ate bisteck a lo pobre, my sister tried ceviche and my brother-in-law ate seco con frijoles, all their dishes were excellent. I will come back again in my next trip to France from the United States. Excellent job! Maria Moore

I got something called something like tacu tacu, it was basically a steak on a bed of rice and beans but tasted really good. The people with me loved theirs too. Lots... More
