Lovely Peruvian food with the latinamerican taste. Highly recommend place with generous and delicious dishes and an excellent service.
If you are looking for the south American cuisine, El Norteno is a must!!!

So my In-laws and my Wife stumbled upon this restaurant the other night and we had to go back the day after because it was delicious. I had the Bistec with Egg and rice and beans and salad and OMG. My entire family aggreed that after having Italian food for so long we needed a change and wow we're we impressed. I recommended to anyone.

After having more than our fill of Italian food, we wanted to try something different. We decided to try out this place located along Castro Pretorio and just a block away from our hotel and the Termini on the other direction. My dad was particularly lured when he saw they served Cabrito (goat) on the menu. Service by the Peruvian family was very friendly and it helped that we can speak and understand a bit of Spanish. I ordered the Pollo al Horno (chicken) which was I found quite delicious. My mom had a pork dish that I forgot but she liked it as well. About the only miss was their desserts. We nevertheless had a satisfying dinner.

We had dinner here and it was really good! We are visiting from Texas & my boyfriend was born & raised in Peru. We like trying Peruvian restaurants whenever we travel. We enjoyed the PAPA A LA HUANCAINA, CEVICHE, LOMO SALTADO, & CAUSA. Staff was very attentive and looked like they were very busy with plenty of customers. Will probably go eat there tomorrow AGAIN!
