My husband an I ordered an assortment of platters; quinoa salad, octopus, tuna ceviche, salmon. The dish that we both loved was the octopus. It is crispy and covered in a honey, balsamic glaze. We would visit again just for the octopus dish, and the freshly baked bread they bring to the tables!!

La Divina Comida has a very diverse menu and a staff who is happy to explain it. Lots of ethnic dishes and amazing beef, but the ceviche is the best I've ever had. Also, try the beet carpaccio. So unique! You'll be dreaming about this meal for a while!

This is a good choice for those persons that usually dine at the same restaurants all the time. It might not become your new go to place, but it will allow you to experience good seafood and risottos if you are in for something different.

Had a very nice experience. The drinks were good. Appetizers were very tasty. The quinoa is really well prepared and very tasty. Attention from the waiters was excellent. The tomatoe soup was lacking salt, but other that that, very nice place to eat!

Peruvian food is the classic of this place you should trie the Tiraditos and Ceviches. The bread that they offer while waiting the food is espectacular. We were 10 people at the table and all the plates were delicious and the service is also very good. The zone where the restaurant is really nice and comfortable.

I have this idea that peruvian strategy for World domination is seduction through food and La Divina Comida is certainly a good example. This place is a unique combination of taste, space and environment. Everything I've tried has been great. Don't miss the octopus or the seafood risotto. My favorite drink is the peppermint pisco, a mixture of cultures in... More
