Had their lunch special consisting of sopa de pollo and picante de carne. Liked the soup but didn't think the dishes tasted anything special to warrant the listing of this restaurant in the Washingtonian Magazine 100 very best restaurants in the region. Believe the food critics, do you? Many of the ethnic restaurants within a mile can rival or outdo... More

Dear La Limena, We have been to your restaurant two times and love the food! Our first visit was so perfect – the food, service and I especially enjoy how the Pico Sours tasted exactly like the ones I had in Peru when my husband and I visited Machu Picchu. Your food reminds us of a wonderful trip! Although we... More

Awesome meal as always. Order the ceviche mixto for appetizer; it is on point. My wife had the lomo saltado while i had the lamb shank. Both were excellent. For dessert, we shared the passion fruit mousse. So good. Definitely recommending this restaurant to friends and family.

Ate dinner here tonight. No wait, fantastic and quick service. We had the empanada (fabulous) and tamale (good) to start. Then both entrees were fantastic, fresh, and served hot. I am not a Peruvian food expert but this was good eats, for sure. The price seemed a bit high but this is DC metro so that's no surprise. I highly... More

The only reason I am not giving this restaurant 5 Stars is that every time we go we feel rushed by the staff to order quickly, eat quickly and leave quickly so that they can seat other guests. The food is delicious and they have the best Mojitos I have ever had with the exception of Caesar's Palace in Las... More

Love this place! We had a short wait before being seated, so chatted up the guys in front of us who've been here several times. They recommended the ceviches, the seafood chowder, the flounder and basically all the seafood and chicken dishes. After being seated, our waiter suggested a couple different non-alcohol drinks, and we tried the passionfruit - sublime!... More

We live in Virginia but sometimes drive out to Maryland just to eat here. The place always seems busy. On our most recent visit, we had the fried trout, the chicken fried rice and the Peruvian chicken. Nothing disappointed. Everything was tasty. The fried fish in particular was very good. I think this place is family owned and it gets... More

We have dined here and had carry out many times. Everthing here is delicious and always top notch. The seafood soup is my favorite. With crab and crabmeat and fish in a delicious tomato broth is wonderful. The rotisserie chicken is never dried out, flavorful and juicy. Deserts are made in house. The service is always great and prompt. Anna... More

The staff is friendly and eager to please. The decor is good although the tables are a bit cramped up. We had the yuquitas relennas, yuqa croquettes stuffed with crab meat as a starter. The main course was Ossobuco con tacu, a thick moist and tender beef steak with its bone in, and served with a Peruvian rice cake. We... More

Great service . The food was delicious. The dishes had the typical seasoning (not Americanized). No waiting in line.
