Wonderful, interesting food - Peruvian and Cuban-- in a pleasant room. Excellent service. Reasonably priced. Doesn't take reservations but the line moves pretty quickly. Many family groups, but noise level always moderate. A neighborhood gem.

This place is seriously amazing. The food and service is outstanding. Luckily we live close by. Ceviche is to die for. And the ropa vieja... yum!!

If it weren't for TripAdvisor reviews, I would have not found this place. It's located in a corner of this shopping area and can be easily missed. The food was absolutely delicious, service was great and prices very reasonable.

Stopped in for lunch and it was delicious. Really good causa (with chicken), ceviche and roasted chicken. Reasonable prices and generous portions. The place is very popular and people waiting for tables, but the service and staff are efficient. We will definitely go back.

Enjoyed a tasty lunch of chicken and Lomo saltado. Wondering whether to get small dessert? The answer should be yes! Try the caramel cookie. Attentive service.

The food is good in general, I like specially the hearts. The problem is that two of us had digestion problem the whole night after our dinner there. They had the "limo saltado", maybe you shall avoid this one. I had hearts and ceviche, and...More

Smart money says you trust the chef and don't move them off what they cook.
