Visited Piqueo after reading the other reviews and we were not disappointed. We started out with fish, shrimp and octopus civiche which was a large portion enough for the both of us. For our main my wife had the fish with a seafood sauce of shrimp and I had the rice chaufa with meat and seafood, both dishes were outstanding. We also tried the white sangria which was very fruity. The service was not rushed and the waiter was very friendly and made some wonderful suggestions. If you are a fan of Peruvian food then give this place a try.

Great find starting from the old house architecture to the awesome Peruvian food. Every dish was awesome and the desserts were really good!

We had been hearing good things about this restaurant, so, we decided to go two days ago. It was a sporadic thing, my husband and I were taking a stroll and decided to give it a try. Even though we had no reservations, the staff was accommodating and showed us to a nice table.
We were impressed by the architecture and the beautiful decoration of the place.
The server was excellent! Not only was he quite good at what he does, he also was quite knowledgeable about the foods and wines he serves, a rare treat in Medellin where the majority of servers don't fully know the foods they serve. His recommendations were spot on! We both loved all the things we ordered. From the wines, to the appetizers and the entrees, everything was amazing. My octopus Carpaccio was amazing, the marisco soup was superb. And the atmosphere quite pleasant. We actually sat at the bar overlooking the gardens outside.

The only complain comes from the unpleasantness of having to look at the dirty area next to the bar where staff receive food deliveries. There should be something separating the bar from that area behind the kitchen so that those sitting at the bar don't have to see that. Other than that, our experience was wonderful. We recommend this place highly. It's quite expensive though.

Be careful! Everything was ok until we ordered a little Tiger milk, since flavour was too simple. When the check came finally, the mini small portion of Tiger milk was charged almost the same price of the complete meal. We felt cheated! We will never be back!

We visit Piqueo regularly with our children to enjoy some delicious Peruvian food. If you do not have a reservation come here early when they open at 7.00 PM. We usually share the Piqueo platter for two person and a squid (black) rice. Order it with a Pisco Sour classic drink and don't forget to finish the meal with a "suspiro de fresa" dessert. There is a Pizza place in front where you can buy a Pizza for your kids if they don't like Peruvian food and bring it along to Piqueo.
