Service: The service was good at the beginning, but as the night progressed it was such a hard task getting hold of a single waiter. Our server was present only till our mains arrived.

What we loved: If you don’t really like the authentic Peruvian food, but still want to try out a little Peruvian, this would be an ideal spot because it’s not entirely a Peruvian restaurant they also have a lot of different variety of International dish options too. We absolutely loved their vegetarian options, especially the Avacado skewers & Spicy Guacamole with baked tortilla. Some of the dishes were super healthy and delicious at the same time! Moreover, the quality of hummus was very authentic and just rich in taste.

What we didn’t like as much: The Ceviche Classico wasn’t good in taste, they could improve on their flavor, and the quantity of fish present in it was a bit too much. Not one of the best ceviches we’ve tried, we have tried way better. Coming to the desserts, the churros was a bit too soft, it should have been more crispy however, the chocolate that comes with it made up for it.

What we recommend:

  • Rock shrimp with spicy mayo
  • Avacado skewers
  • Spicy Guacamole with baked tortilla
  • Chilli & salt squid with white miso

Ambiance: Romantic and chill vibes. Dim lighting, soft music & olive trees in a setting.
