Sunday lunch/brunch at Pio Pio was great. First time Peruvian food and loved it. Lime cheviche fish/seafood is great as well as the Chicken. Portions big, ask guidance how much to order and share.

Friendly service. Excellent cheviche. Good paella and mashed potatoes. Definitely large portions, it makes it abundant to have appetizers and main course. Good local beer. Prices are moderate. Place is not too loud and allows for an OK conversation.
