My first taste of Peruvian, and I'm impressed! We had the chicken (highly recommended to us and glad we chose it!), sweet potato fries, and the truffle mac & cheese (to-die-for!). Casual atmosphere, lots of noisy conversation, but friendly, helpful staff, and great margaritas!

This is a fun neighborhood place with delicious food and a lively atmosphere. We had tigre de leche ceviche, roast chicken, lomo salteado, and mango lemonade, all of which were yum. Recommended.

Very good food at this restaurant. Their chicken wa excellent, and so was the steak. The food was so good that I ate here a couple of times. Expect to spend $20 to $30 for an entree.
