It’s always about Peruvian food! Well, wether you’re a Jan Brady fan there is good reason that it’s all about Peruvian food. The staff are so amazing and I swear they need to build out stadium seating in front of the chefs. We came in,...More

Pricey, noisy, very popular by locals, tasty food, not so great deserts. Good for small groups, cozy veranda tables.

Barranco is in downtown Lafayette and the building has both indoor and outdoor seating. The food is Peruvian - they have ceviche, empanadas, papas bravas, and many other typical Peruvian foods like Lomo Saltado and Pulpo (Octopus). We had the ceviche tasting which was excellent...More

The service is uneven (some waiters are stellar and some are bad), but the food is always flavorful and freshly prepared. We've been going at least once a month since they opened and still have many things on the menu that we still need to...More

The cebiche (as spelled on the menu) was pretty good, but the rest of our meal wasn’t anything special. The kitchen also closes fairly early, but that seems to be pretty normal for the area.
