We went looking specifically for this little restaurant, located on a side street, based on a Lonely Planet review. I love gallo pinto, but it was time to take a little break after many days of it! So we opted for mixed Peruvian + Costa Rican cuisine.

Sea bass is the focal point of the menu here. We ordered the mixed seafood soup, the the fried bass with garlic sauce, and steamed sea bass. The steamed bass was the best; the broth it's served in is absolutely delicious, bright from the fresh cilantro and lime, and savory from the tomato base.

The flavor was fantastic and portion sizes were generous. Coming from San Francisco, we were also very pleased with the price for an entirely seafood-based meal (about $22 USD for 2 people)! I highly recommend this place.

This is down to earth peruvian lunch spot that is way better than all the upscale peruvian and seafood restaurants. I have eaten here at least 40 times and the whole menu is great and authentic. Not necessary to eat picante for those think all peruvian is too hot. Menu has english translation but owners speak spanish only. Parking out front in good walking downtown location.

My family and I are actually Peruvians, and we were very excited to find this place around the corner of our hotel. It may not seem like the nicest restaurant, but the food there was absolutely amazing! We visited a higher class Peruvian restaurant while were there too and it was nothing close to the food here.

After a couple weeks in Costa Rico we were interested in trying some other types of food. We chose Peruvian and are glad we did. The portions were decent and the price not too bad (not super cheap, but not the most expensive either). My two teenagers even managed to find something to satisfy them, which is not always easy!
