If you are looking for Peruvian food then this is the closest you will get to it. I highly recommend the jalea, ceviche, pescado a lo macho and arroz chaufa de mariscos. The service is good and the amount of food is decent. Prices are very good!

This place is one of the highest ranked spots in Tampa, and close enough to the airport to make it worth the visit. The service was incredible, every staff member was attentive and always at your service. Our server Fabiola was especially helpful with recommendations and suggestions. The Peruvian drink known as Chicha Morada was delicious and perfect for a... More

Well worth it. I would eat here again without hesitation. Small local place with very good prices. the food was fresh and tasty.

After checking out this place at trip advisor, we decided to give it a try. It's in the corner of the Winn Dixie shopping center. We wondered the calamari and combo cerviche which was both great. We also tried the combo fried rice and beef with potatoes. The fried rice was HUGE, at least double the portions of any Chinese... More

Steak was phenomenal cooked just how I like it and the cheese cake made out of maracuya is a must for dessert lovers. Julissa is the best server I had by far!!!

The food was very good, the plave is cozy and clean. They give you Very Healthy portons and the food was good (did I say that already?) But I didnt rate it at 5 stars because 1.

This Peruvian restaurant has great and fresh food. Good service. The place and ambience are not that nice. For me, going to a restaurant is an experience. Not only the food but the location and the decoration are important. If you want to have great peruvian food with no pretentions then this is your place.

The ceviche was excellent and the waitress was super friendly. Not very conveniently located but not entirely out of the way!
