We love Peruvian food in all its diversity and have eaten lots of it in the US and when traveling in Peru. This place does it right. We especially loved the lomo saltado, parihuela (seafood soup), papa rellena, and fried yucca and plantains; even the rice was full of flavor. Don't judge by the drab storefront: once inside you'll see... More

It is a homy, little, jewel of a place. It is not pretty, not particularly comfortable, but the food is delicious and served with kindness and knowledge. Incredibly, Peruvian food remains little known and that's a pity. That place would be a good introduction to it and at more than a fair price. In the Summer, you can even sit... More

I love this place. Not expensive but authentic food. Not touristic at all just 10 min walk from my place. I want to go everyday! This time was even better experience than last time. I can't wait to eat there again.

Food is so tasty. They are slow but nice. And toilet is clean. It means their kitchen is definitely clean and serving good food. I don't trust restaurants which has dirty toilet. Their kitchen must be dirty if its toilet is dirty. This restaurant you can trust and eat raw fish without worry.

Service is slow and the staff is not so friendly. Food was OK but when you end up paying 30 euros per person you would expect something better. Dommage !

Their seafood fried rice was DELICIOUS! It was full of seafood...mussels, prawns, octopus, dried scallops. Every spoonful had so much ingredients! They didn't speak English & they do not have an English menu (only Spanish & French). But the lady who served us was very nice and with some gesturing, we were able to place our order. We stuck to...

Staying in Montmartre

Neighbourhood Profile
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
