Great Peruvian food. Friendly and helpful staff. Very casual restaurant in small shopping strip mall. Chicken soup was fantastic - a lot of chicken, vegetables and homemade stock. Pork chops were delicious - nicely spiced and moist. Potato and cheese sauce was tasty and different. Overall very good experience and reasonably priced.

First impression upon entering restaurant is you are stepping into old Europe. Service was great but we are very early diners so we had the server almost all to ourselves. Now for the most important thing "The Food". Everyone at our table ordered something different but we were unanimous in our opinion that the meals were great. Also had many... More

The seafood is not very fresh. At these prices, you really cant expect it to be. It's a nice place with very attentive staff, but if I go back, I'll get chicken.

Just had lunch at the Happy Fish, a Peruvian fusion restaurant located slightly north of downtown Tampa. I don't know what took me so long to eat there! While the food is a little heavy (I had the Lomo Saltado), the beef was very tender and the flavors were magnificent. Staff is helpful in making your selection.

I loved happy fish! I went here because of all of the great reviews on trip advisor and it was worth it. The restaurant is in a strip mall in the corner and doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that put you off! Inside is small, but has a great atmosphere! The service was excellent, I... More
