Quality and service provided by Chef Waldo is incredible. My family received 5 star quality food for a 2 star price. The ceviche and lomo saltado was muy rico! Excellent. We traveled to San Antonio for a family vacation. I didn't expect to find excellent South American cuisine in Texas, however our Uber driver Juan from El Salvador married to... More

Came into San Antonio (45 minute drive) to use our groupon at El Ceviche De Waldito. They were supposed to open at 11am. We arrived a few minutes early. They did not open. At 11:20, I tried calling them. No answer. At 11:30, I called groupon and cancelled the Groupon and will get a credit back for future Groupon purchase.

I loved this restaurant. It is mainly Cuban food. They have a buffet they servevto you that has several options. I don't eat real hot food but my friend does and there was enough of a variety to satisfy us both. Make sure you try the soups. The owner/chef and his wife are more than gracious and really explained the... More

We had tasted Chef Waldo's food recently so we decided dinner at his restaurant El Cebiche de Waldito. Right choice. His food is always freshly made and always with the right spices. Presentation is first class like you were in a five star restaurant. We had Jalea de Mariscos, a Peruvian dish like a seafood platter, it was tremendous and... More

The food is beyond amazing. It is a family owned business and you are treated as a member of the family. If you are in the area this place is a must.

What a surprise! We came in with a groupon and were so glad we did. Wonderful place. The best tasting buffet I have had. I look forward to trying their dinner menu.

You have to try this place, especially if you're a foodie. It's authentic Peruvian food that is just incredible - it's as beautiful as it is tasty. The Tamale and Mussels are our favorites. If you are new to these flavors, try their buffet for a sample of everything. Dinner is great and very romantic. Chef Waldito and his wife... More

El Ceviche de Waldito is not much to look at (actually, their walls are filled with recognitions, certifications, etc for Chef Waldo) and it's quite small but the food is BIG! It's true that Chef Waldo and his beautiful wife greet you with open arms. Since this was our first time, we were instructed in the order of things...approach the... More
