This is a good choice for those persons that usually dine at the same restaurants all the time. It might not become your new go to place, but it will allow you to experience good seafood and risottos if you are in for something different.

This restaurant is very well located and has a nice terrace. The service is friendly and really make you feel good. The food is good. I personally enjoyed the tuna carpaccio. It is a very good place to hang out with friends. the place is a little pricey for the quality of the food

Had a very nice experience. The drinks were good. Appetizers were very tasty. The quinoa is really well prepared and very tasty. Attention from the waiters was excellent. The tomatoe soup was lacking salt, but other that that, very nice place to eat!

Peruvian food is the classic of this place you should trie the Tiraditos and Ceviches. The bread that they offer while waiting the food is espectacular. We were 10 people at the table and all the plates were delicious and the service is also very good. The zone where the restaurant is really nice and comfortable.

I have this idea that peruvian strategy for World domination is seduction through food and La Divina Comida is certainly a good example. This place is a unique combination of taste, space and environment. Everything I've tried has been great. Don't miss the octopus or the seafood risotto. My favorite drink is the peppermint pisco, a mixture of cultures in... More

We had a customer visiting over, so we considered La Divina Comida. Overall, it is a great place, food is well-served. Presentation of dishes, plus ingredients look and taste delicious and fresh. I do recommend this place; however, if you look for authentic Peruvian food... go else where. Their food is a fusion between Asian and Peruvian cuisines... really good,... More

The food was okay, but the service was really bad. I have been to this restaurant before and had issues with the food. This time it was the service. Our waiter, Cesar, never greeted us. Took our order after a long time and we never saw him again. Another waiter brought our food and seemed annoyed when we asked for... More
