Friendly and attentive staff as well. The shrimp soup and ceviche are really good and the risotto unique and tasty.

The restaurant is handsomely decorated and very clean. The Chicken soup was great! The sea bass and vegetables with rice were well prepared and a nice presentation and not much flavor. The people that worked there were very nice AND they never came back to check on us to see if we needed anything. Thought it was expensive for lunch,... More

This is a good choice for a reasonable lunch. We went with family-- it was a choice for a birthday lunch for a teenager---one of his favorite places. Very good rice/risotto dishes, huge portions. Our group had everything from steak to fish to vegetarian -- something for everyone.

I really enjoyed my experience at Chancay. After living in Peru I missed some of the flavors in their foods. Chancay definitely gave me a taste of being back in Peru. The only disappointment was the cancha- tosted Peruvian Corn- with the ceviche. They served cooked yellow corn with it instead which isn't at all the same.

The restaurant is in the Itskatzu Mall. Small mall in the city of San Jose, CR. For starters we had ceviche (fish and shrimp), and anticucho(1st and 2nd photos). For entrees, we had the Chupe de Camarones and Arroz Chaufa. And for dessert, we had Suspiro Limeño. We had beers, freshly squeezed pineapple juice. The tab was around $80.00. The... More

I went to Chancay for lunch, the place is neat, the waiters well suited and the food incredible. I asked for a Chicken Causa Limeña and it was what I expected and more!. I highly recommend it if you want to taste different and exotic cuisine.

I strongly recommend visiting Chancay. The Tiradito de Chancay and Marlin Ceviche were delicious. Miguel, our server, was the definition of great customer service.

Everything was okay. Nothing really stood out (service, food, atmosphere). Probably won't return if I stay at the Courtyard again when I'm back here for another business trip.
