I was not overly impressed with the food. Presentation dull and disappointed in the food. Unusually flavorless for a Peruvian restaurant. There were 5 of us who all tried each others dishes. None stood out as great, but the pasta Alfredo ( or their version) stood out as the worst. Waitress seemed bothered when we asked the restaurant name's origin,... More

It's very close to San Alfonso, which is very convenient. We wanted something to take home with us, so we didn't stay to eat. The ceviche was spectacular, so was the fried rice, and the plates are big! The services is quite slow to be honest, but I think it's understandable when a restaurant is so full. Give it try...

It's a nice place and the food is good...but the waiters took forever to come, and then, our food took even longer. Since we were on a long weekend, we let it pass, but I wouldn't recommend this place if you're in a hurry.

After waiting 2 hours to get our tasteless food i asked the manager what was happening. The only response i've got was there was too many people. I asked for the check and said if it was going to take the same time to get it and she answered: for you it's going to take longer. Can you believe this... More

Nice place to eat, fish or meat, they always got fresh stuff, and if not, they tell you. Music is fine, drinks are cool. And service works ok.

Our family really enjoyed this restaurant. We thought the service was excellent and the food very good. I would stick with the real Peruvian food (my son had the pasta and was a bit disappointed) but the ceviche and aji de gallina were really good. Great value too considering how expensive restaurants can be in Chile.

Though the menu isn't extensive and place is very plain looking; the food is prepared with fresh ingredients and the kitchen and wait staff have display a surprising commodity - customer service. That alone would have prompted me to rate it highly in this place where customer service levels are abysmally low...however, the simple menu and fresh sourced ingredients really... More

We went to a day trip to Algarrobo and we found this beautiful and charming place, excellent food, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. If you go to Algorrobo, you should definitely stop here.

We were a group of nine and all had a wonderful meal and terrific service. Half of us were native Chiléan and half US American, most bilingual but the servers also spoke excellent English! Those of us from the US got to experience our first Peruvian Restaurant and we loved it. I requested something be 1) low-fat, 2) spicy, and... More
