This family owned restaurant has some of the best food anywhere in San Diego. Wonderful selection of Peruvian dishes, which means great ingredients (meat, chicken or fish) with great spices and sauces. Empanadas are the best I've ever had. Should not be missed if you are in the area. Reservations needed because it gets filled up easily.

Amazing food, and really friendly staff. We loved the ceviche, calamari, desserts, and everything that we ordered. Everything was classic Peruvian food, and it was all homemade. We will recommend this to family and friends, and we will for sure be back!

I wish I could review the food but we never got served. We asked the waiter to sit outside and after awhile he brought us menus and water. After a fairly long wait, I went in to use the restroom and asked him to take our order. He never came back out. I stood in the doorway and made eye contact with him and he just shook his head. Wow! We happily went to the diner next door for a great meal and excellent service.

We went for dinner to this charming little spot - just our kind of place. Staff is friendly and helpful, decor is colorful and artsy, and the food is great! If you aren't quite sure what to order, the waiter will help, and the recommendations were just right for us. The empanadas were unbelievable! This is a Peruvian restaurant.
