An interesting experience. An attempt to make peruvian cuisine. Nice try, but it is better to look for ways to improve quality. My 11 yr old daughter was making suggestions of how to make it taste better.

We were looking for a local restaurant near our hotel (Sea World) and this was a great find. Small, family-owned cafe with Peruvian and Spanish cuisine. Just different enough to be memorable, and nothing like Tex-Mex or Mexican food. The house speciality of chicken was okay but not too imaginative. Two of us had the Cebiche Pescado and loved it...

I've been here a few times. The rotisserie chicken is very good. If you take it home, it does re-heat well. The green rice is good, but the French fries are a surprise---really yummy (but they don't re-heat well). They sell a dinner to go special that consists of a rotisserie chicken and like 2 sides. I personally don't "waste"... More

Highly recommend this restaurant. Food is delicious. A little bit pricey but they do have really good lunch deals from 11-3. Food is worth every cent you spend. Friendly staff.

We shared a bistec a lo pobre, it was delicious, in our case there was enough food for both, the pisco was also very good but could be a little bit bigger. Service was great, restaurant was very clean.

This has become our Sunday lunch place even though they open at noon. Delicious!! Their white fish ceviche is to die for! So yummy - its very South American style. The rotisserie chicken - that's my go to dish, switch it out for the green rice (its got cilantro in it) and put some black beans on that. Try the... More

If you're looking for a lighter menu that won't make you feel like you've eaten a real heavy meal, try some Peruvian food at Rocotos. I really like the green rice and the pollo saltado (sautéed chicken with onions and fries). The pollo saltado had such a wonderful sautéed onion flavor that'll make you either want to share it with... More

Horrible service. The food was not what I expected/ did not meet my expectations. Did not taste like any Peruvian Food I have ever eaten, and I eat a lot of Peruvian food. My server was rude. Ordered food and didn't get the second half of my order until many minutes later after half of us had finished our food.... More

Went to this restaurant for a change of pace and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food being served it was very tasty. That being said my wife's plate arrived after we had been there 20 minutes and 10 minutes later my plate showed up, so bring a book or call ahead because they are not in any rush.

This restaurant has a real homey feel to it. You can tell that the food is made like in "mama's kitchen". We enjoyed the food so much.
