This restaurant had great Peruvian food and a wonderful atmosphere. The wait staff was friendly, and was able to understand my very bad Spanish. We ate on the patio, and never felt rushed or hurried.

This was a nice restaurant with nice food. At first sight we never thought it would be great but then we took the chance and got surprised. Then again if you don't like Peruvian food don't even try it.

This used to be one of my safe-bet restaurants in San Jose, but the last time I went I found tables without its tablecloths, no fabric napkins as it used to be, no more leather menus, even a TV... It was a classy restaurant that...More

It was worth following up on this restaurant which was recommended to us. A Pisco Sour set the mood of reminiscence. We had difficulty choosing from the offerings on the menu but were more than pleased with our selection. Generous servings meant that despite a...More
