We had a really nice dinner here. The atmosphere is great, the service was very good. Our dinners were very good. Try the Cebiche, it is excellent. And the Lucuma Mousse is a really nice, but different way to end the meal.

If you are in town and want fresh seafood cooked south america style: this is the place. Jalea (a combination of fish, shrimp and others) and the traditional Peruan ceviche are a must on this place, attention is excellent and price is rigth too

Visited this restaurant while in DC, the meal was superb and the staff could not have been friendlier The ceviche and lomo saltado ( basic staples of Peruvian cuisine ) were delicious. Strongly recommend this place! We will return next time we visit DC

Very cute, small restaurant with buena onda. Food was excellent and the ceviche was very fresh and the perfect appetizer. Service is a bit slow but worth it.
