“Dessert is amazing!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

My family, friends and I make sure we go to Javiers every vacation for bananas foster. It is amazing and nothing else can compare, as far as other bananas foster. Their other desserts are great too, but we always get two bananas foster each!

“Very good Peruvian food”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

We went to Javier's to celebrate a birthday, and our family of 8 adults was glad we had chosen it. The service was friendly and attentive, and the food good. There are many choices for appetizers as well as well as entrees. It was a fun atmosphere and that contributed to our positive feelings. The restaurant is not fancy, but you will enjoy it if you eat there.

“Great Value”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We have been coming to Siesta Key for years and wish we had eaten here earlier. The $25 menu is an amazing value. Food is great, portions huge, service and atmosphere excellent.
would like to return soon.

“Small Plate Heaven”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

My husband and I shared a series of small plates and were extremely pleased with the quality of the food and the service. One of the most unique and interesting meals I have ever had, with every dish a new (and delicious) adventure. Even the plantains, normally a humble dish, were a high point. The wine list was varied and we found plenty of good selections and reasonable prices.

Not what we had expected to find in a small stripmall along a Florida beach road => which, of course, made it even more charming. There isn't much I would come back for in Siesta Key, but Javier's might be worth the trip. One of the best meals I've ever had.

“Don't miss this restaurant!!!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

It sure is easy to pass by this restaurant since it is hidden in the back of a strip center. We decided to try it based on reviews that we read on Trip Advisor and didn't even realize that it was across the street from where we were staying It was fabulous! We went twice and both meals were excellent. We tried a Peruvian variation of both a seafood Paella and Frutti di Mare over pasta and both were fabulous. We were particularly pleased with the freshness of the vegetables and the attention to subtle flavors overall.

It was a pleasure to meet Javier who was genuine and friendly. Watching him as he continually looked over the entire dining room was really interesting. You could see that he was observing every detail to make sure that everyone was being taken care of properly. A true professional.
