This is a little restaurant, and although the service is not that good, the food taste is excellent. We tried chupe de camarones, papa huancaina, tamal and chaufa de mariscos, and everything was really delicious

Before I start my review,, I'll just say that my fiancé is Peruvian. I've been to my fair share of Peruvian restaurants in the DMV area and I've had homemade dishes made by his family. This unfortunately will be marked as "probably won't return" on my imaginary Peruvian restaurant list. To start, the restaurant itself isn't that pretty. It's a... More

The server took her time and walked us through every one of the Spanish dishes...I'm glad she did because the really interesting dishes were all in Spanish. Lots of... More

Went here for breakfast one day. Food was expensive for what it was (eggs and beans are cheap) and not good.

I came here with a friend visiting from out of town. He was visiting from upstate New York and always wants Latin food when he comes down, so we decided to check this place out. I'll start by saying this isn't a fancy place. It really does feel like a neighborhood Latin American lunch spot. The servers were friendly but... More

Having lived in Peru for a number of years, I was pleased to find this Peruvian restaurant within walking distance of my new place. The menu has a huge selection of typical Peruvian items, Evidently the owners are Peruvian as was the waitress I had. Service was cordial, especially when my Peru connections were discovered. Food was slow arriving --... More
