I really enjoyed my experience at Chancay. After living in Peru I missed some of the flavors in their foods. Chancay definitely gave me a taste of being back in Peru. The only disappointment was the cancha- tosted Peruvian Corn- with the ceviche. They served...More

I strongly recommend visiting Chancay. The Tiradito de Chancay and Marlin Ceviche were delicious. Miguel, our server, was the definition of great customer service.

Everything was okay. Nothing really stood out (service, food, atmosphere). Probably won't return if I stay at the Courtyard again when I'm back here for another business trip.

This little restaurant has become a regular stop on my Costa Rican itinerary. I have never been disappointed in the quality of food and its presentation. I happily recommend CHANCAY TO THOSE WHO ENJOY A HAPPY LOCATION with a bit of customer noise.

I am going to Escazu for Dental work with Dr. Obando staying for 2 weeks. Can you tell me how far away you are from The Courtyard Marriott Escazu as that is where his office is across for the Courtyard. In the plaza also that has Hooters.
