Awesome experience. Chef Roberto and his girlfriend were wonderful and personable. All the dishes were mouth watering. Roberto made us an off the menu dish and was very good. Try the chicken Saltado ; chaufa rice ; Peruvian ceviche. Thanks

Found this place through tripadvisor, it is located in the top floor of the outdoor shoping. Despite the modest look of the place, the food was excellent! We enjoyed a ceviche and two rolls, all were delicious.
