Description: Culantro Peruvian Cookery is the dream of a Lima & San Francisco-trained chef who found himself far from home. Everything we do is from-scratch & beautifully presented in a spotlessly clean, cosy atmosphere.

I have been to Culantro a few times. The location is not great, but this no frills restaurant is a hidden gem. The food is of exceptional quality even if the choice is not large and some items on the menu were not available. We loved the empanadas and the roasted chicken. Also try their dessert empanadas!

The service is also extremely friendly. Very good value for money.

My husband and I found this gem of a restaurant by searching online for the best restaurants in Hamilton. We are so glad we found it! The food is absolutely delicious, the service is wonderful and the presentation is beautiful. The menu is small but varied and they have daily specials. The yucca fries are indeed "to die for"! The chef buys locally. I highly recommend this restaurant. I wish I lived closer to it so I could eat there every week. As it is, I am going to make the trip just to go there again and again. Well done, Culantro!

My wife and I stopped in here on our last day in Hamilton, Ontario and were very pleased. Juicy, succulent, well-seasoned chicken. Yucca fries. Wonderful beef empanadas. Perfectly prepared quinoa salad. The sauces were quite good too. My only complaint is I would have preferred a little more cumin on the chicken but otherwise we were very satisfied.
