Visited for lunch, ordered calimari appetizer, Jalea & chaufa. All very well prepared & very tasty. Portions huge, we took 80% of chaufa home for another meal. Everyone very friendly & helpful. This restaurant is tucked back in the corner of a busy Winn Dixie shopping center but when you walk in the door it is tastefully decorated, clean and... More

The food tasted amazing. if you go consider sharing a plate if you are not starving. The Prices may look high at first, but the amount of food makes it a very economical option.

Decided to try this restaurant after reading all of the reviews online. They were all correct. This restaurant is excellent. The food was very fresh and tasty. The service was friendly and polite, and like other reviews, the manager/ owner came to our table to check in. Even the person working at the bar noticed that I was annoyed by... More

Happy Fish is tucked away in a strip mall and looks uninteresting from the outside. But inside it's a fun experience. We enjoyed Peruvian food (a new experience for us) and enjoyed the live music. About midway into the evening everyone was asked to move their tables to clear a spot for dancing. Good food, friendly service and Peruvian music,... More

Fantastic first Peruvian dining experience! Friendly attentive service & live music added to the experience. The food was delicious and the portions were mammoth! Ceviche de pulpo (octopus) was shared as an appetizer but suffices as a full meal. The Tacu Tacu de mariscos was incredibly scrumptious. I've never had better fried rice than what was served with this entree,... More

Drove an hour to try this place with my son. The reviews were excellent. It is in a corner of a plaza mall. We are both interested in trying types of foods we have never experienced before. We started with an appetizer, yuca a la huacaina..... Fried yuca with cheese sauce. Very good. Dinner for my son was chupe de... More

Awesome place; great food and great management. I believer our server changed to the manager. If you need things a little more spicer...ask. He brought some Peruvian hot sauce which had great taste. The shrimp ceviche was good, I could be wrong but I believe the shrimp were previously frozen; would have been better if fresh/raw and "cooked" by the... More
