Excellent casual dining for friends or family. We've been many, many times and have also done take out for their delicious corn-fritter arepas and empanadas of all sorts (chorizo arepas and Cubano and dulce de leche empanadas are our faves). Great ambiance for a fun night out. Be sure to take home a container of the salsa verde. We've never... More

I've been to this restaurant 5 or 6 times over the past few years. The first time I went I got he Pernil (Pork) and thought it was outstanding. The next time it was a special seafood dish that was just OK. Since then I have tried a few other dishes and specials. The Pernil (twice) was the best meal... More

Found this restaurant on Tripadvisor while on a business trip to Norwalk. Started with a very good Ceviche followed with Paella and finished with flan. All excellent and service was great. Large beer and drink menu.

A real experience - sitting outside with the sand in tour shoes on a warm fall night is great. Very extensive menu of peruvian foods - great bar selection of drinks you almost feel like you are on vacation. Its a real treat - don't miss it - also it was featured on Diners, Drive ins and Dives.... its great

We had the opportunity to spend some quality time with my brother and sister-in-law in New England this past weekend and on our way up, we opted to beat the Long Island traffic and leave early Friday afternoon. As that we were now an hour and a half early (worth it given Long Islands notorious traffic); we decided to stop... More

I have eaten here several times with family and friends. The food never disappoints and the atmosphere is fun enough for a night out but casual enough to bring your kids. My favorites are the lobster enchiladas and the sweet potato salad. My son loves the empanadas. The guacamole is also terrific.

My daughter and I decided to have lunch in the Norwalk area, because it was mid-way between our locations. Neither of us was familiar with Norwalk, so I did an Internet search and discovered this gem, with excellent reviews. The cuisine is authentic Latin / Spanish, with many specialties flowing with fresh guacamoli, shrimp, seafood, brown rice with black beans.... More

Terrific Latino cuisine and a special ambience. You can eat outdoors on the sandy "beach" under umbrellas, or inside where the setting is bustling and close. But either way the food is varied and inventive, plus yummy juice drinks and good cocktails. Great fun.

Great food, reasonably priced with a decidedly funky staff . We like going here during the summer when they build a beach outside so you can eat and put your toes in the sand . This place was featured on The Food Network so that makes it interesting too. Try it for brunch on the weekend if you don't mind... More
