Good Peruvian restaurant with basic decor. It is not an upscale place, even thought they charge as they were. Food is good and tasty. Service is also good. However portions have been reduced. Will consider coming back when in the area.

Good service, first class Peruvian food especially the ceviches and lomo saltado. The wine list is ok but limited. The pisco sour is excellent. Service is good and friendly. The rest room facility is limited. Parking is easy.

Chancay is a quaint restaurant with delicious seafood. Our dinner party all enjoyed the sea bass entrees, our favorite was the sea bass and shrimp. Will definitely stop here again on our next trip to San Jose.

Good service. Great food with special flavor. Chicha morada is good if you're looking to try a different drink. The bathroom wasn't clean
