Our first night in San Francisco and lucky enough to book a table for the four of us. Although we sat downstairs the atmosphere was of people enjoying themselves. Started of with ceviche which is my favourite way to begin a meal and I was not disappointed with my choice. Two of us had the rotisserie chicken which was moist... More

Loved this place although on the night we were there the air con was broken and the place got a bit stuffy. Awesome ceviche's, really good food and great service.

Nice dinner in this peruvian restaurant; prices in line with the area, chicken is really good and it is a place ok also for large groups. Too much noise (music is too high) is the only defect.

Let me start by saying that Lima has one of the best cuisines in the world, so if you have not tried Peruvian food, do try it! Limon was an excellent version of my Limeno favorites, in a fun hip San Francisco neighborhood. We had pollo al la brasa (rotisserie chicken) and pulpo a la parilla (grilled octopus). Both were...

The food was terrible. The yuka fries weren't soft. I ordered "Pulpo a la Parilla" - "Grilled Octopus". It was extremely salty. The fries on the side weren't fresh and were very greasy. I only liked the cocktail - Traditional Chilicano as it was prepared well. Definitely will not come back.

This restaurant was absolutely delicious. My husband and I started out with the ceviche mixto. Peru has one of the best ceviches in the world and I have tried many from different countries. We followed that with a chicharron de pollo; again it was delicious. My husband ordered the cheese empanadas. He loved them. I found them a little too... More

The food here is really good and well served. The chicken is well cooked and presented in very nice way. The empanadas are a bit pricey, but very well made. The cocktails are amazing!

Recommended by a client. He wasn't wrong when he said it was "Great spot to stop for a fabulous cocktail". The bartender is very accommodating to make my drink not tooo sweet. Stop by, you'll enjoy it!

Wow. Everythingis amazing. Go for the triple ceviche platter and fried yuca chips. The homemade traditional Peruvian beverage was outstanding.

I was a little skeptical going to a Peruvian spot as a vegetarian but this place's food blew me away. The empanadas were delectable and the yuca fries were fabulous but the beet salad should not be missed. The entire meal was a huge hit with the meat eaters and vegetarians alike... oh and don't forget to order the mac... More
