Peruvian food with an international touch. This Peruvian food is as good as it gets and I live in Lima. Try the lomo saltado over risotto amongst others. A fantastic restaurant in a very friendly environment. Great service.

The waiters were extremely helpful and attentive. The order was received promptly. The ceviche asado was prepared to perfection. The chocolate dessert was extremely generous and delicious. One feels very welcome.

It is not just Peruvian, they have incredible pasta dishes (oxtail ravioli) and a warm version of ceviche which we loved. The jalea and Mero tacu tacu are also to die for! If you visit Quito, you must enjoy a meal here.

This has some very good reviews so I had to try. Just about everything was OK. The ambiance was OK, the food was OK, menu selection could have been better, the service was not good. Shame as I had high expectations for this place.

Some friends living in Quito recommended we visit Andrew Lau's restaurant. Here we enjoyed some Peruvian fusion. I had the Soy Glazed Tuna Steak which was flavoured with Ginger and Pisco.

The food and service are good, they have a good selection of wines, the prices I found expensive comparing other restaurants in Quito of the same category.
