Its been a staple of downtown sarasota for years, and the food is just fabulous. It gets busy- but they have a great happy hour with food specials that is worth trying to get to!

Wife's birthday dinner and she had a great time. The ceviche was refreshing and we enjoyed the scotch selections. Downtown Sarasota has a really nice thing going on with a good selection of places to try and the beach not more than five minutes away.

Centrally located Peruvian restaurant. Menu very heavily focused on the fish side with about 6-7 variations of Ceviche. Food was good with some interesting variations. Pricing however on the high side for what it is, main about >$30, Ceviche starters >$15. Pisco Sour was quite different from what I recall to drunken in Peru. Choco dessert for $10 was a... More

We had a party of seven with lots of special dietary needs, but Selva handled our requests with aplomb and served us outstanding food and drinks. I had the classic ceviche and spinach empanadas as my main, and both dishes had just the right balance of flavors. My dessert was the tres leches cake, and it was fluffy and flavorful,... More

This Peruvian restaurant offers dishes filled with unique and wonderful flavors. The ceviche's are fresh and each one different from the next. Try the white fish or tuna ceviche if you are timid about raw fish. It will not disappoint you. The hanger steak and roasted sea bass were wonderful. Did not have dessert, we were too full. We will... More

You need to have a meal in Selva while in Sarasota. Nice setting with aN outdoor terrace. Very friendly staff. The ceviche was melting in the mouth and the menu has an extensive list of them. We chose an assortment of them. Then an interesting fried calamari with yucca. As main we selected a whole snapper grilled for two but... More
