Exquisite fusion of Peruvian, Oriental and International cuisine with the quintessential touch of Costa Rica! A must-go restaurant in the Escazu area of San Jose!

My wife and I had dinner here on our 20th anniversary. We liked the atmosphere on the terrace and the food was delicious and the service was friendly. The wine list was quite expensive, but this seems to be "normal" in Costa Rica, even the cheapest bottle of wine costs over usd 30. Apart from that we enjoyed the wine... More

The menu here includes a variety of dishes from Costa Rican to Peruvian to real fusion style. All of them look quite interesting. One of the things I didn't realize was that most restaurants in Avenida Escazu close by 6 o'clock on a Sunday. So I arrived at 5:15 and had to choose my menu and eat very quickly since... More

I was craving for Peruvian food, so we went there. The services was very good, nice ambiance but the food its was a let down. We tried the ceviche; it was so sour. we also tried the Octopus grill and it was so sweet like a dessert.

I've been here many many times and have never been let down. Everything they offer is beyond excellent, their service, food, wine, dessert, you name it! Definitely try the "ceviches" (any, they are all perfect) and save some space for some "suspiro limeño" for dessert, you might want to split it cause the portion is big and very sweet. Do... More

The best of Perú in Costa Rica. The food is amazing, fried ceviche, lomito saltado and suspiro limeño was delicious. The service is the best and offers a good variety of dishes and average prices. The place is clean and invites you to come back for more. Nice location.

Get an Costa Rica waiter, they are very humble and honest. We had ordered so much food and the Italian waiter did not tell us we where over doing it.
