I think it's the best place to try peruvian food in Caracas. They offer good discounts with tickets from other webpage.

I love Chirú and their best specialties are the ceviches. They mix the classical peruvian recipe with an excellent venezuelan idea : they add frsh tropical fruits. Try several of them, they are all delicious. Good classical peruvian dishes like the causas and aji de galoina and very interesting "chaufa dishes" : the mixture of peruvian and chinese cuisines.

After a few months we went back to this excellent bistro of Peruvian cuisine. The food is always excellent and the setting very nice. Do not miss the linguni with "pesto peruano" and quinoa breaded tenderlon steak, the rissotto "pirata" with calamari black ink,parmesan cheese and breaded salmon or the mahi mahi "a lo macho" with a seafood hot sauce....

I have eaten several times in this Peruvian restaurant. My last meal at Chiru was very good, as usual, one month ago. The decoration is not too special, but the food is worth the visit. I love many different dishes here. They are tasty and nicely presented. The truth is, I have never had a dish here that I did... More

Chiru has had a lot of inconsistencies... Sometimes it has amazing food, then goes to abysmal and then average. This time, food took almost an hour to arrive to the table. Talking about prices now is not fair with any restaurant (unless it is pretty obvious)... but what I can say is that the relation of value is not ok...... More

I have been to Chiru many times and it never disappoints me. The "degustacion de ceviches" (3 different ceviches tasting) is great! Also, the "chupe de camarones" (Peruvian shrimp chowder) and the "adorado chiru" (mahi mahi peruvian style) are excellent. Do not miss the different "causas" that they have. To drink a nice Chilean white wine or a great pisco... More
