I went here with a friend around 2 p.m. on a Saturday and it wasn't very crowded (likely due to the fact that not many people think "Peruvian!" for brunch) so we sat down immediately. There was a brunch and lunch menu. The brunch options looked great and my friend got a salmon omelet that was served with a purplish rice with bananas. I had a grilled fish that was on special it was served with a very flavourful topping of garlic, cilantro, veggies, and shrimp and a creamy quinoa. I had a shrimp ceviche and my friend had a fried potato dish for appetizers. All in all the food was a visual and tasty treat. What I liked most was looking at how colourful the dishes were! The service was attentive, though not overbearing, but I wondered how the entire environment would change when the restaurant is packed. I can imagine it would be a quite the effort squeezing through the rows of tables and chairs. I would certainly return again and might take my mom there when she visits in a few months. Lovely!

My meal started with Papa Rellena and ended with Aji De Gallina. Both dishes were very lackluster and plain. Not worth a return vist. I was told that this restaurant is full every Friday and Saturday night and that a person might need a reservation to get a table. Go figure.

If you’re looking for a great restaurant to take a date for an intimate gathering this is the place. The food was delicious the Tacu Tacu was superb and the bread pudding was to die for. I finished off my meal with one of their special coffees and I was in heaven. I would definitely be making a return visit.

It's one of the best places to eat Peruvian in the city. I love this place and believe me, it's hard to make this Peruvian happy when it comes down to food... I tried the anticuchos and the lomo saltado, they were very authentic. Looking forward to my next visit!

I ate here the other night with my wife and was quite satisfied.only reason I gave the food a 4.5 and not a 5 is because the ceviche pescado was a little underdone for my taste. I don't know if that was by design or not. Either way, my wife, a major-league sushi eater, loved it. The ceviche mixto was firmly cooked, and both came piled high--we got our money's worth. The Bisteck a lo Pobre is one of those meals you gobble down, forgetting to look up until you're finished--really delicious. There's basically nothing on the menu over $15. So it's not the Red Hook Ball Fields, but a great value for the neighborhood.

I am very particular when it comes to Peruvian food since no one can beat my dad's; however I was very impressed with the food in this restaurant. My daughter loved it too. For the "tacu tacu" reviewer...where did you ever get that tacu tacu was from fish? Tacu tacu is precisely what they served, refried beans.. I found this restaurant to be very authentic.

I love this place. The 2 for 1 drink special before 8 is a great after work treat (and let me tell you, these are REAL drinks, none of that noname well drink crap) and the ceviche is amazing. Totally fresh, totally delicious. The service is helpful and quick, and it has a good date vibe too.
