Excellent Peruvian and Mexican cuisine. Lots of variety. Plantains are out of this world. Clean establishment. Friendly and accommodating staff. Small but attractive dining area. You don't want to miss this.

Made of an older bungalow house, this mexican/Peruvian restaurant has seating inside and outside. Simple but friendly. The food was surprisingly good, and very plentiful.

Two of my favorite dishes: Poblano Chicken with Bacon and the Shrimp with Rice has a deliciously spicy sauce! You can ask for a less spicy version. We always enjoy having dinner here!

We came hoping for a taste of true Peruvian food but were sadly disappointed. The huancaina sauce was great but the lomo tasted more like fajitas and my wife's mojarra was bland and tastelessness. I don't know how the Mexican food was but calling what...More
