First time eating here with my friend Dee and we loved it! Cozy, clean place. The waitress was very attentive and helpful. She explained all the items we did not know. All of the food was delicious!! So tasty! I recommend going during happy hour and trying all the appetizers I will be coming back for more!:)

*****

Good spot if you want to try something different waiters are nice and food is good a little high priced but good

*****

Perfect in every detail. Incredible service. I called to surprise my sister and brother-in-law with a dinner for their 48th anniversary. Jesus assured me he would make the meal a very positive experience, AND HE DID. In these very trying times, he exercised the care that is often lost. Thank you for making this special couple very, very happy. Please visit this business where service/great food is the priority.

We had the Anticuchos de Carne + caipirinhas, I had the Escebeche de Pescado & my date had the seasonal special of a Chorizo Burger. All of them were amazing, 10/10 would recommend. Our server took great care of us, & the owner/manager was very polite & talked to all of us. Try it!

Awesome get the RIBS!!! and chicken really good

*****

A hidden gem. Best ceviche in town by far, excellent little bar, and the chef/owner is passionate and pleasant.

Support your local businesses while ALSO getting more than you pay for.

I wanted to try this restaurant for my Birthday dinner. . Right from the start the dirty martini was one of the best I have ever had. Their fish sole in white wine sauce was very good as well. The fish was very fresh and tasty. Vegetables fresh and crunchy. Owner is great as well.. Fresno is lucky to have this restaurant. We will be coming back for sure to try more dishes here. . Highly recommended.

*****

Excellent customer service. Delicious food & drunks. Can't wait to go back and try something else.

*****

This is Peruvian fusion food so some of the dishes have different ingredients. The limo was good but the tallarn saltado with salsa huancaina was too spicy for me.

*****

I had never tried Peruvian food. It was excellent!!! Will definitely come back.

*****

Excellent Food! I wasn't sure what Peruvian food would taste like and it's AMAZINGLY delicious! Fish is fresh and cooked to perfection! I'm usually not a fan of chicken and ALL of the chicken dishes I've eaten are delicious! Wait staff is excellent and VERY knowledge about the dishes and drinks are just as tasty!

Delicious food, you can order their appetizers as tapas, and enjoy everything

*****

First time here and tried it omg the food is delicious loved it so much definitely coming back to this place to have dinner again. The environment in this place is nice, friendly staff. The dishes are not a big size of the portion but it's worth paying the price for the appetite if wanting to enjoy a great meal.

*****

Excellence experience as usual. Salmon with spicy sauce with zucchini noodles was best salmon dish I have had. Very tasty and healthy. Great service. And was not too busy for a Friday night. Devine bread pudding was a great way to end the night with coffee.

*****

This restaurant had some really fun foods and drinks I had never tried before, and I understand from a friend who'd recently been in Peru that they serve lots of Peruvian classics he's never seen in the states before, so that was a treat as well. I'd recommend this restaurant - it's a pleasant surprise in a kind of out of the way location.

Amazing service and the meal exceeded my expectations!

*****

The Peruvian food in this place is wonderful! There's choices for the meat eaters (chicken beef, seafood, fish, etc.), as well as the vegetarians (honestly, I didn't look for vegan items). I would highly recommend that first-timers try the lomo or pollo saltado and, for a little sweet alcoholic drink, the chichatini. They have a nice selection of wines as well. The peach bread pudding is also a great choice that rivals any bread pudding that Campagnia might offer. Ambiance wise, it's very nice, definitely nicer than its San Francisco parent. Highly recommend!

*****

Great food, great people.

*****

Great food love it

*****

Excellent! We sampled portions of the menu by splitting them between two. Gave us a better understanding of how the flavors and textures were prepared. The sever was very knowledgeable and gave us excellent recommendations. Four courses and dessert, our bill was only 65$. Definitely a place you should try.

*****

Authentically good food. Prices are reasonable and no complaints about service. Dining here was an astonishing nice change.

*****

Staff was very helpful, food was really good. 5 stars over all yes BUT I would say 3 stars for the 7 dollar imported beer that came in a can lol. 3 stars for the owner hovering over us for 20 minutes after we sent back a plate my gf wasnt liking the flavor of. 10 stars for the best steak I've had in a while. Dont get the risotto like she did lol. Go big or go home.

*****

Small, quiet, & good food. Service was friendly & helpful. Menu has a variety of items from Peru & some local choices. Highly recommend.

*****

Lovely... absolutely lovely. I cant decide if I loved the music or the food more. They were both wonderful. They owner came to our table personally to greet us and thanks us for coming in. He the explained that the love music would be available many nights throughout the week and on Sundays. We havent had a meal this enjoyable, in Fresno, for some time. Thank wonderful job!

*****

*****

Service was amazing food was great. Best appetizer in Fresno we ever had.

*****

Very very very very very very good experience.

Tasty Peruvian-centered cuisine.
Quaint ambience.
Attentive service.
Great menu for couples.

If youre looking for a place to take your sweetie during the Covid shut down, this is the place!

The chef is from Limon which closed down unfortunately. I guess he bought them out somehow. So, I think Limon in a smaller, more quaint setting.

Give them a call! Keep these guys in business.

This is the second time we have experienced this restaurant. The food is exquisite. The flavors are wonderful. This is by far the best Peruvian / Latin American restaurant in Fresno. -Karen Gillian
