We followed the reviews here and were not disappointed. It is somewhat unassuming. The ceviche was excellent— fresh and sparkling. Sweetie had the grilled lobster: very good. I had the Peruvian seafood stew with lobster. Excellent. Very nice experience. We recommend!

Dont let the extremely tacky interior (ugly christmas tree etc) fool you - this is a great restaurant. We had lobster, fish and shrimp and everything was really tasty. A little pricey but lobster isnt cheap anywhere
