Casual restaurant with great seafood. We had the crevice which was a large portion and so fresh. The sea-bass chefs special was delicious. The bbq octopus was fantastic. I am a foodie and this place is nothing fancy but good seafood.

This restaurant had great Peruvian food and a wonderful atmosphere. The wait staff was friendly, and was able to understand my very bad Spanish. We ate on the patio, and never felt rushed or hurried.

This was a nice restaurant with nice food. At first sight we never thought it would be great but then we took the chance and got surprised. Then again if you don't like Peruvian food don't even try it.

The Restaurant does`t have a fancy location or look, but it don´t worry about it, the food is amazing!!! The service is also excellent, helpful waiters, very reasonable time to get what you order. The "aguadito de mariscos" (aprox. $15), a big seafood soup, is...More
