My first experience with Peruvian cuisine; really enjoyed the food and its presentation. Like the decor and night ambiance. Seafood soup was full of spices and well presented. The Chinese seafood entree was very colorful and tasteful. Service was slow but the personnel is really friendly and helpful.

So, two of the four of us started off with the seafood soup. Absolutely awful. Neither one of us could get the broth down, tried and tried but it was just plain inedible. Sent it back. I had the Causa sampler. Just okay. Was looking for more flavor but never found it. The gal in our group had a salad with shrimp. NO TASTE. She left half of it. The mixed seafood ceviche had a very tasty sauce. Way too much octopus. Every time he ate one 3 more popped up. They were endless. Should have been more fish and scallops and way less tentacles. One of our party actually had good food. I believe it was chicken on a stick and his own hibachi. The shrimp dish appetizer he had as an entre was also very good. My opinion, find another restaurant.

The reason to go to this Peruvian restaurant was to have "picarones" a delicious dessert from Perú.
First they told us that they did no have them, in spite that there are inthe menu, then they say they were preparing them, and continue to say so, until the very end when we will told that there were not ready.We feel cheated.
Food is average, it took One hour, exactly to bring the cold appetizers we had. Either they have very few cooks or service is very bad! I can not think how it would be when they are full.
Last a question, why is it call "ceviche by the sea"? There is no view!

The only good thing about this restaurant is the establishment: clean and nice decorated. The worst is the slow service. The hostess, wait staff and the owner walk around in circles without accomplishing any thing, you have to wait for your food between 30 to 45 minutes !!!! FOR EACH COURSE !!.
When my brother recommend this restaurant he mention the inconvenient of waiting but highly recommend the food; that is why I went. The food was nothing special, at least the food I ordered and very unprofessional wait staff; truly only 3rd world country customers will wait too long for average food and that kind of service........way over rated !
