Truly outstanding flavor and a great host. We were the early birds waiting at the door a 5pm. We enjoyed Peruvian Chicken and Pan Seared Fish - sorry don't recall the name. Come on Tue/Wed for the more laid back local crowd or Fri/Sat for the larger hip crowd.

We had the fried fish with tomato, onions and fries. Made on the spot and super tasty. Will definitely go back. Service is very nice.

A local took us to this really wonderful restaurant. The menu is dominated by wonderful seafood dishes representative of Peruvian cuisine. The decor is nothing special, but the food more than makes up for the plain, but clean decor. And the menu is very fairly priced. I highly recommend this neighborhood gem.

Peruvian with a bit of Spanish. If you enjoy Latin American or Indian and Asian give this friendly restaurant a try. Very tasty food worth going that little bit further.

The 3 of us had a Tortilla Espagnola (Spanish Omelet), Cangrejo Relleno (seafood sauteed in a creamy garlic butter sauce, and Paella Marinera (seafood paella). IMO all the flavors were terrific. I'm not hip for Peruvian food, but seems to me the menu is Spanish, and what we had was delicious. Service was good, place was clean, decor OK, and... More

Upon arriving bread was dropped at the table however no drinks were offered or water brought to the table . Waited about 10-15 minutes before we were asked for our... More

Found this restaurant while I was looking for places to eat around Van Ness and California. From the outside you can't see inside to see how busy it is. Friendly atmosphere. Food was very good, but unfortunately, it took a very long time for the food to arrive at the table, and the restaurant wasn't full. If they can get... More

We arrived a little early and Luis was kind enough to let us come in. We had an excellent Paella and Tortilla Española. The service was friendly and fast.

My wife and I were walking down the street and happened upon this wonderful place... The food was amazing and the service was even better... You must try their secret homemade habanero sauce!
