Amazing & Authentic food! – This restaurant has fabulous food. Everything on the menu sounded good and we wanted to try everything! We ordered paella and a lomo saltado. The paella was cooked with the mixed seafood perfectly. Was tender and not over cooked and was packed with a TON of flavor. The lomo saltado dish was just amazing. There was steak that was so juicy and full of flavor put over fries with an amazing juice from the steak that soaked into the fries and then a side of fries. It was amazing! Then for desert we had a peruvian donut that was made fresh there with a delicious sauce you could glaze over the donuts yourself. The sauce was sweet and tasted like figs. It was SO SO amazing as well. The atmosphere is very inviting and beach-like. The staff are all so friendly and make you feel like your eating a home-cooked meal. We are out of state from home and live here for school so this was especially great. I would highly recommend if you're looking for something different, delicious, oh yeah and did I mention the HUGE PORTIONS!!! You will have food left over for days. The prices are also very cheap and its seafood and beef something that is not very cheap at most restaurants. Definitely try this place out though you will LOVE it!!
Peruvian Seafood at it's finest – very reasonable prices for Peruvian fare ,authentic dishes such as Lomo Saltado ,Jalea,Ceviche, and the Choros a la Chalaca werw the best I have ever had . the take out is the same huge portions as being seated inside . I had an excellent time there and have enjoyed the take out various times (even though I live in Wesley Chapel ) it is worth the drive !!! Hard to eat better at $10-15 .
LOS SABADOS CANTAN – Fui a comer el sabado que paso y fue algo muy lindo, me encontre con la sorpresa que tenian un cantante, fue preioso me hizo recordar canciones muy bonitas, me quede cantando por cuatro horas , el sitio esta muy bueno, es acogedor, tiene un diseno muy parecido a un restaurant peruano, parece que estas en casa, la pase a lo grande, la gente que atiende alli es muy amable, me lleve muchas tarjetas y las estoy repartiendo muy orgullosa porque soy peruana y me gusta que mis amigos conozcan un sitio asi, la comida estaba riquisima fue demasiado bueno todo, me tome una cerveza cuzquena que es un poquito fuerte, sali de alli muy contenta, solo fui con mi mama ya mayor ella, pero gozo mucho y eso me gusto mas.
Great dinner experience – If you're feeling adventurous, give this restaurant a try. Great food, clean restaurant, nice wait staff. Try the picaron desert. They're sweet, soft fired doughnut puffs, and they're delicious.
Jackpot! – I happened to come upon this cozy little spot after it was recommended by a Peruvian friend. Recently opened, the food is amazing! I had the lomo saltado, which is a beef stir fry type of dish served with rice. My boyfriend had the house specialty, ceviche (sp?), which is a fish dish marinated in lemon juice. Best of all, the price is just right, and the portions are more than decent. Would definitely recommend, especially if you're tired of the regular old rice and beans of most spanish / latin restaurants. Reminded me of the those great authentic finds you come across in cities like NY.
