This is my favorite restaurant in Pacifica. The management is great and low keyed. Go there if you want superlative Mexican/Peruvian food and an informal atmosphere. I particularly love the fish and shrimp diablo dishes. Expect to see a crowd there. You'll also see folks...More

After “upscale” Peruvian food two weekends in a row, this one feels like coming home at last. Sans gimmicks, just good old home cooking with surprisingly fresh ingredients. And prices to match the surfer vibe in this slice of the coast: a pleasant drive from...More

I went with client to have lunch here, as I had never been. There was very little on the menu for vegetarians and also the food that we did order was very boring and uninteresting. We were surprised.

Great Peruvian ! A wonderful ceviche dish, great pesto chicken, superb trout plate. The owners and staff are wonderful and always a warm welcome. Gets a bit busy (for a good reason) so sometime you need to be a bit patient. Well worth the wait....More

Nothing flash about this place. It can get loud but, the food is delicious! We had the mussels appetiser, a salad, a pork burrito. All great! The paella looked good but we did not take it. The sangria is great too. Highly recommended!

Good Peruvian food at decent prices is hard to come by, but this place did not disappoint. Although it doesn't look like much from the outside, this place is a must visit. The food was fantastic - some of the best Peruvian I have had...More
