Very friendly host & staff. Recently visited here & enjoyed the happy hour specials. Causas (potato salad meets shrimp salad) & beef & spinach & mozzarella empanadas w/a tasty dipping sauce. Will be back, for sure!

We stopped by here for something a bit different, the food was very good, although it did have a salty after taste. We saw that comment in a yelp review as well...they have local beers on tap, which is always a plus. They are possibly opening a new location in San Diego, we'll give it another shot if they do.

Okay, I'm biased as this place is close to me and Stavoros is the best owner. This place makes some outstanding food and good prices. Tacu Tacu with lamb is probably the best meal and it took me 3 years to find it, have dined here over 50 times, never had a meal that wasn't good. Catering for events makes... More

We tried this restaurant because it was on my airline miles dining list. We did not know much about Peruvian Cuisine. We went for lunch! The place was busy, but the staff were wonderful! We ordered Papa a la Huancaina for appetizer. Loved it! We also loved the bread and the green sauce The main entrees, however, were too salty... More

Every time we have a party, we get one dozen of each type of empanadas. There are six flavors to choose from beef, chicken, vegetarian, shrimp, mushroom and pork. We love them all. Our guests devour them and are always wanting more. The catering ordering is very convenient, although no delivery is available. We just call about 24-48 hours ahead... More

This is a great place to visit in San Clemente, especially if you enjoy a relaxed atmosphere, great service and good food. The bar area is one of the hidden gems in San Clemente- great beer list, excellent sangria and a full bar. Its a great place to watch a game, and you will love the staff, especially Stavros. The...

We at first didn't know what to expect from this restaurant. Never had Peruvian food- much less heard of it. We were totally blown away! We went with friends who were very familiar with the foods. They recommended to try a dish that normally is made with chicken, but to have it made with fish. What a delightful treat! We... More
