If you were thinking of quiet conversation, this is not for you. But for good food, especially the grilled seafood selections, it is worth a visit. Peru used to be a culinary backwater. The reverse is true now...a blend of Japanese and South American. Patrons...More

Can't miss this incredible restaurant. Food is just out of this world. I am a very demanding person when food is a subject. Perú has a great food. It is the next discovery. This restaurant is making a great job. Excelent plates. Try the tiraditos...More
