“Ceviche!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

When its really hot, I need cooler food. Their appetizer ceviche is big enough for a dinner. Also had skewers of beef hearts (I know, I know) that were delicious. I have been back several times. Try the pisco sours.

“Good location, ok service, and decent food”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

I make a point of going to Peruvian restaurants wherever I go. After living in Lima and Huaraz for a few months, my eyes light up when I see Peruvian. I was here for dinner. The woman who owns the place spoke to our table and shared memories of Peru with us. Very authentic! The place was hopping, which shows that others like the food too. It was good we had a reservation for our table of 5.

Atmosphere aside, the food was ok. The ceviche was good, the lomo saltado was forgettable. I wished I had ordered aji de gallina instead. The last Peruvian place I was at was in Florida, and their ceviche was OUTSTANDING. So, comparing this to that, this restaurant was a bit of a disappointment. But, had I been in Managua longer, I would have given it another try and ordered something else.

My time there ended on a sour note. The bill took the server at least 10 minutes to conjure up. It was handwritten, and we were also disappointed to see it had not been separated. We had a taxi waiting for us so didn't want to ask and wait another 10-15 minutes, so we had to split the bill arbitrarily which was not fair to all parties present. If they were more efficient with how they prepared the bill, we could have all paid our rightful share.

“Good food, service, and great value”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

Had dinner here- food was delicious, service was great and it is set in pretty gardens with Andean music playing in the background. Would definitely recommend trying it!

“Real Peru food ...”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

This food is authentic and very well executed. It is owned by a Peruvian woman with whom I briefly spoke but I already knew that -- I lived mostly in Lima for five years.

It was good enough that we ate there several times. The ceviche is quite but the real surprise was the shrimp soup (I was sick), it was an absolute revelation (outside of Peru).

Sorry friends but Peruvian food is the best in Latin America and this is likely the best of it in Central America. Live it up!

“my first pic in Managua”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

The menu is huge with options for everyone. The fresh fruit juices are excellent. It is my first pic of places to eat in Managua. There is a quiet outdoor patio great for any occasion. It is centrally located and easy to find.
