“This Peruvian restaurant is a true gem. Tucked away in Sarasota city, and very close to the awesome Siesta beach, this was easily the best eat-stop during our recent florida trip. Fernando, the owner is super nice, great with suggestions, very attentive. And the food: Delish! (My mouth’s watering while I write about it). The hubby and I shared a ceviche sampler appetizer and a takutaku with lamb. We debated between the duck and the lamb as the duck had more reviews, but Fernando suggested the lamb without hesitating as we didn’t regret :-). Super awesome, our taste buds probably danced with joy. Portions were hearty and reasonably priced. If you ever visit Siesta beach in florida, be sure to drop by this place. If not anything else, at least try the ceviche.” – Debolina B.
“This place is great! Fernando and his team make sure service is spot on and they answer every culinary question you might have. But the most important thing here is the FOOD. Food here is amazing. Their Ceviche is one of the best we’ve had ( and apparently they’ve won many competitions proving it). Their arroz con mariscos ‘seafood rice’ is wonderful. Lots of flavor and better than many paellas I’ve had! ( and I’m Spanish!). For dessert, Try their yummy version of 3 leche’s cake ( infused with pisco). If you like good food and are in Sarasota, you must check it out!” – Alba D.
“I went there two weeks ago, after asking Siri for a list of restaurants near me. It was THE best dining experience I have had in years. The food was fresh, unique and absolutely incredible! The atmosphere was casual yet elegant. Fernando the owner was friendly, knowledgeable and truly caters to his guests. Even the chef came out to talk about the ingredients of the food. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!” – Shaina Buckles
