    The preset degustation menu at $29 for a 3 course meal was outstanding. Ceviche was awesome. Will go back for sure.

    i must say that in regards to the service- it was delightful throughout the evening. we came for taste of mtl-which included 3 dishes. sorry, i have eaten ceviche in peru many times...it really needs to 'sing' ..this one was flat..and there were crunchy things in it which did not add at all. the lamb shanks were great.[ although they seemed more French in style than peruvian] ..the dessert...some sort of lemon flan??? there was no lemon flavor...it was more styrofoam....i didn't eat it....i love lemony desserts...this was not one of them. it was a very pleasant evening....but...

    Excellent Peruvian food....ceviche was so fresh. Very appealing plate presentations. Bowls and dishes were so colourful. Delicious main course and fantastic Quinoa pudding...a first for me. Arrived alone due to one person canceling and was promptly seated at an excellent table...this during a very busy promotion, Montreal a table. Appreciated the thoughtfulness and excellent service.

    It is always fun to try new types of cuisine. But my big hit was the Pisco cocktail I had before the meal!!!! The service was very very nice!

    Everything we ate was out of the ordinary. The combination of spices,sauces and the ceviche technique to "cook" the food made the experience wonderful. I hope they will get more clients as we were only two couples in the restaurant on a Wednesday evening. Highly recommend the restaurant.

    Beautiful decor is the setting for lovingly prepared fare, artfully presented by an attentive server. This is the city' best kept secret.

  • Great food but lacks extras

    I am no expert on Peruvian dining but given that my significant other is from Lima, I have eaten my fair share of Peruvian food. The lack of Peruvian wine is a disappointment. The only beer offered is Red Stripe (Jamacan beer in Peru?!?) No Inca Cola. No chicha morada. I tried 2 of the 3 classic Peruvian cocktails offered and they were both very good. The food was very good but highly stylized. I would recommend both the Ceviche appetizer and the lomo saltado main dish. Overall, I found it to be overly expensive. There is at least one other Peruvian restaurant in Montreal with the same high caliber of cuisine but which has the extras that I was hoping for: Peruvian wine (privately imported), standard beer menu, and chicha morada.
