I strongly recommend visiting Chancay. The Tiradito de Chancay and Marlin Ceviche were delicious. Miguel, our server, was the definition of great customer service.

Everything was okay. Nothing really stood out (service, food, atmosphere). Probably won't return if I stay at the Courtyard again when I'm back here for another business trip.

This little restaurant has become a regular stop on my Costa Rican itinerary. I have never been disappointed in the quality of food and its presentation. I happily recommend CHANCAY TO THOSE WHO ENJOY A HAPPY LOCATION with a bit of customer noise.

This was my second visit. I ate here two years ago. The service is excellent; they have a large menu; the food is all amazing and the drinks are great. I recommend the trilogy ceviche and the chichironne sea bass. You will not be disappointed.

OMG The Parijuana-Peruvian Seafood Soup was the absolute BEST EVER. So delicious that we Ate the soup two times in 3 nights😊😊 Also the mussels were fantastic. I didn't care for the ceviche but everything else was top notch. I will return.

Located in Plaza Etzcazu in the area of Escazu this restaurant is among many others by the Courtyard Marriott Hotel and near the Multiplaza Shopping Mall. The seafood is very good and the service swift and very attentive. It's the third time I went there in 8 months and the place shows consistency and keeps the quality that I found... More

$10 - $22 per person One of the best Peruvian Restaurants in Costa Rica. Much better than any Peruvian Restaurant in the United States, and I've been to a LOT. Very fast and friendly service. Excellent presentation in all dishes and the flavors are really amazing.

Thank Sebastian S
