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

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!
