Staff & food are amazing here! I spent some time in Peru so I have a soft spot for their food & this little gem,ran by abstuve is superb. I obviously had some Inca cola to drink, we weren't drinking but it is BYOB. I ordered some plantain to start & my husband had this amazing cold dish with large... More

I was in the area on business and I love Spanish food so I gave this place a try. I ordered a bunch of things to try for takeout, and overall I liked it and would eat there again. The place is a hole in the wall, and if you're driving too fast you just might miss it (I did).... More

The food here is outstanding. It is so clearly freshly made and very authentic. The soup will improve your day because it's so delicious and soothing. The owners and staff are very kind and seem to be Happy to explain the menu to non-Spanish speakers. I highly recommend this place!

Been to many Peruvian restaurants...this one is really good. Restaurant is comfortable and attractively decorated - don't expect 5 star ambience and cuisine. Do expect a great meal with very friendly, attentive service. Menu fully explains, with photographs, each selection. The ones we had - Papa Relleno with creole salad, Lomo Saltado, plantains and a bowl of beans were all... More

Excellent whole roasted chicken, rice and very tasty beans-- with a side of plátanos and their very good hot sauces--and you have a very well priced, very big meal for two. The roast chicken is our go-to meal, but everything else looks very good. Over the years, it appears that the restaurant has changed hands-- but seemingly all to the... More

We were told about Pollo a La Brasa by a friend a and a group of us decided to try it on a Saturday night. We called ahead and made a reservation because we were a group of 7. It was suggested to us at that time if anyone in our party was going to order the whole chicken dinner... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch, and were immediately impressed with the interior of the restaurant. It doesn't look like much on the outside, which is probably why it took us so long to actually go here. But once you walk in the door, it is a very inviting restaurant with ample seating for its size. The food... More

A Peruvian treasure in the middle of New London, CT. This place offers traditional, home made, just like back in South American type of food. Also, the portions are plentiful. I highly recommend this place if you crave SA or Peruvian food!
