Quaint little restaurant with excellent food - sufficient choices to meet most appetites. I ordered the carnitas special which was spicy, tasty and good.

Was highly recommended to visit and I can see why. Wonderful friendly service from our Venezuelan waitress. Cocktails that revealed their flavours gradually. Fresh tuna ceviche followed by succulent tender pork shoulder. I really couldn't recommend more highly!

Had such a wonderful experience as this restaurant crushes the food and service categories (atmosphere enjoyable for sure). The black cod and Peruvian corn was better than what I enjoyed in Lima. All the dishes totally rocked. Best guacamole as it was eclectic and delicious.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
