Ceviche Alcalan was a nice mice mix to start with. One portion easily served two. Nice spicy taste - we selected the medium spicy one - a good choice. El lomo saltado was a nice continuation - also large enough to share. Nice wine suggestion to match both dishes! We will be back!

The waitress was flirting with my partner!!! Ignoring me completely when I tried to order some wine. My husband was so embarrassed that he decided to tell her she must to listen my request. We'll never return to that place. Food was greasy, the rice was reheated as well the potatoes.

One star for the waitress understanding. Now let's get into details: BAD MANAGEMENT! What a shame for this place to have a bad management. First rule in this business: the costumer is always right! If you want for them to return. First time in this place, Friday night, 11 of us after being in close doors because of the "hurricane".... More

Potatoes were not fresh at all. The rice was overcooked and not fresh. Rude and disrespectful waitress, long wait for your drinks! the dessert changed on price suddenly from the one that you got in the menu for 2$ more with no reason. .

I've been visiting the Bird road location since 1981-2. A little shop with 6 tables has now expanded to triple its size, has a south beach location and you can't beat the prices. Try the sampler dish $16! You get ceviche(your choice), causa(your choice), papa huancaina and trimmings. Haven't ordered anything yet I didn't enjoy.

My husband and I started with the three-color fish (corvina) ceviche, which was delicious with its three different "ají" sauces. Then we shared a "jalea de pescado"- we usually don't eat fried food, but the fish was not greasy and fresh- it was cooked to perfection. The service was attentive, and the wine list was a bit limited but adequate,... More
