We love Peruvian food in all its diversity and have eaten lots of it in the US and when traveling in Peru. This place does it right. We especially loved the lomo saltado, parihuela (seafood soup), papa rellena, and fried yucca and plantains; even the rice was full of flavor. Don't judge by the drab storefront: once inside you'll see that the space is colorful, clean, cozy, and comfortable. Given the sparse (though generally positive) reviews we weren't sure what to expect, but now we will definitely go back to eat there every time we're back in Paris. Our plates were as clean as can be by meal's end!

It is a homy, little, jewel of a place. It is not pretty, not particularly comfortable, but the food is delicious and served with kindness and knowledge. Incredibly, Peruvian food remains little known and that's a pity. That place would be a good introduction to it and at more than a fair price. In the Summer, you can even sit outside in the sidewalk that turns into a terrace. Then you can walk to one of the many cafes around (up the stairs on the corner if you dare....).

I love this place. Not expensive but authentic food. Not touristic at all just 10 min walk from my place. I want to go everyday! This time was even better experience than last time. I can't wait to eat there again.

Food is so tasty. They are slow but nice. And toilet is clean. It means their kitchen is definitely clean and serving good food. I don't trust restaurants which has dirty toilet. Their kitchen must be dirty if its toilet is dirty. This restaurant you can trust and eat raw fish without worry.

Service is slow and the staff is not so friendly. Food was OK but when you end up paying 30 euros per person you would expect something better. Dommage !
