We had dined here two or three years ago when we met a friend who was staying at the Marriott Courtyard and she asked us to meet her for lunch. Her background was actually Peruvian and I frankly did not know a thing in terms of what I would like or dislike but she talked me into the well-known Potato... More

Following a recommendation from a friend, I visited Chancay together with my family. FYI, I lived in Perú for six years and went to Chancay with high expectations. As a starter I shared anticuchos with my wife. The consistence was as expected, but the flavor was softened, probably to meet local taste, not as spicy as the original. The same... More

Let me begin by saying, Peruvian is one of my favorites. I have been in Lima and surrounding areas( Mira Flores & San Isidro) several times,the food there is amazing!! Knowing that this is Costa Rica and that it would not be the same as actually being in Peru, I tried to be fair. The Pisco sour was good and... More

Had a wonderful meal in Costa Rica and stumbled upon this location. Delicious food, a staff that helped us alter the menu to meet our dietary needs as well as help the English speaking group.

The restaurant is handsomely decorated and very clean. The Chicken soup was great! The sea bass and vegetables with rice were well prepared and a nice presentation and not much flavor. The people that worked there were very nice AND they never came back to check on us to see if we needed anything. Thought it was expensive for lunch,... More

This is a good choice for a reasonable lunch. We went with family-- it was a choice for a birthday lunch for a teenager---one of his favorite places. Very good rice/risotto dishes, huge portions. Our group had everything from steak to fish to vegetarian -- something for everyone.

I really enjoyed my experience at Chancay. After living in Peru I missed some of the flavors in their foods. Chancay definitely gave me a taste of being back in Peru. The only disappointment was the cancha- tosted Peruvian Corn- with the ceviche. They served cooked yellow corn with it instead which isn't at all the same.
