For $15 USD you can get a large appetizer selection from different areas of Peru. The place is charming, the food is excellent and it is in a very safe neighborhood.

Best ceviche we have had on our trip. The Tigre leche is the bomb. Excellent mint and lemongrass lemonades. Great view of volcán misti. Three ceviches and two drinks was less than 70 soles. Highly recommend.
