I have eaten here twice with groups of friends. Everyone loved it. The food is very good and the atmosphere is not rushed. The staff was helpful and friendly. The cuisine is Latin American with Peruvian specialties. The restaurant is BYOB.

We tried Aji Picante last weekend. We were not sure about the Peruvian menu but were happily surprised. Everyone enjoyed their appetizers and entrees. Have to try Corn Fritters and Seviche. The Suspiro de Limeña dessert was amazing. As well as the best cup of...More

We went with friends for a casual weeknight dinner. The dining room uses the same kitchen as the new Pamela's (which is only open for breakfast and lunch). Since the entire space was just remodeled and opened, it is very clean and fresh. The waitress...More
