A word from La Huaca Peruvian Cuisine
The initial melting of the culinary tradition of ancient Perú with Spanish cuisine, evolved through immigration and influences of French, Italian, Asian and African people, who modified their traditional cuisines with ingredients available in peruvian geography only. The result: Peruvian Gastronomy, the most diverse in the world. Welcome to the world of peruvian cuisine. Welcome to a whole new adventure.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We visited Peru a year ago... and we went back to La Huaca for a special occasion. It was great fun... and just delightful. And the service was outstanding...! The food is good too, and brought back good memories."

  • "It was so nice to experience a variation of flavors. The ceviche was perfectly spiced and the lamb shank was incredibly tender with a delicious sauce. Others in my group had seafood dishes that were also uniquely tasty. We can't wait to go back!"

  • "The first thing we noticed was how nicely decorated and clean the restaurant was. The young lady that took our order was helpful. I had the three meat plate (chicken, beef, pork) served on a bed of potatoes and smothered in a brown sauce. The chicken was a bit tough and a couple of the potatoes were under cooked. The overall taste was good. The white long grain rice that I ordered as a side was excellent. I had a sangria and this is easily the best I've had in the sacramento area. Served with bits of fruit to enhance the flavor. I had the flan for desert. We were served three quarter sized medallions of flan and smothered in a sweet sauce. The flan was too small to appreciate and the sauce was too sweet. Overall the experience was good."

  • "The portions are generous, but the food looks a lot better than it tastes. I've had peruvian food many times and all the dishes we tried here were lacking taste. The prices are also too high for the ambience. It looks like a small, casual dining place where jeans are most fitting, but it charges as if it was a super fine dining restaurant. Expect to pay at least $20 plus tax and tip and drinks per person."

  • "Expand your taste awareness--this is a must-try eatery for those who want something different. I (quite ignorantly) expected the spices to be reminiscent of Mexican food but was delightfully surprised by Peruvian cuisine and its flavors. Every once in a while I'll trip on a restaurant that takes me far from what I know, and the flavors of Peru were savory and fragrant, far from what I knew. La Huaca took me on a delightful, if fleeting, glimpse of Peru; savory, earthy, and spicy without it burning taste buds into numbness--despite my being Mexican, "hot" food disengages my taste buds from more subtle aromas and seasonings. La Huaca opened up the world of flavors. Someday I plan to go to the place where this delicious essence was born."

  • "This was my second time dining at La Huaca. The first time I realized that the portions were so generous that splitting the meal with my dining partner would be ideal. We enjoyed a lovely mango Ceasar Salad, delicious ceviche and a very tasty and unique yellow potato and chicken dish. We still had food left over at the end of the meal, not because it wasn't wonderful, but because there was so much of it. Our entire bill, including my glass of wine (also a generous pour) came to less that $45! That is a great bargain for a delightful dinner and dining experience! I will definitely return and bring more friends!"

  • "This is a great place to go for dinner. The food is excellent and very authentic. The musician that was there on Friday night was very good, but most importantly - not so loud - it was easy to keep up our conversation at the table."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The place has great food- but light from the windows made it difficult to see my date. We moved but then the light was in his eyes. We asked if the blinds could be lowered and told "no" Other then that and waitresses with their dresses far too tight and short- the food is fantastic."

  • "Large portions. We should have shared a dish. The peruvian helado is to die for. Octavio was our server again and did a good job."

  • "Never had Peruvian food before. Very friendly staff, the food was very good and unique. If you are tired of dining at the same old type of restaurant you should dine at La Huaco. Unique one of a kind place and I do recommend you give it a try. I plan to come back and want to try some of the other foods offered."

  • "Excellent friendly service. First time for us to sample Peruvian food. We fojund it to be a great treat. Food was well prepared with excellent seasonings and presentation. Highly recommended. We will visit again."

  • "This was our first time at this restaurant. Glad we had someone alone with us that has eaten here before and explained if we all ordered a dish there would be way too much food. One dish is plenty for 2 people to share. Large portions of delicious food. "

  • "We set a 3:45 appt for Sunday and when we arrived they informed us that there were 15 minutes left in the buffet and then they close till 5pm for normal dinner service. They were very accomodating to us and allowed us to come in and eat from the buffet, but I feel like Open Table really dropped the ball on this one. We did not go for the buffet and we had special items we wanted to order. There was nothing on the Open Table site that mentioned this. I am not even sure why you would take any reservations at 3:45 giving a party 15 minutes to eat."

  • "Tried this for the first time on Mother's Day. Had to wait about 20 minutes past our reservation, but the food was outstanding. Very unique and flavorful."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "First time there was Mother's day brunch. The food was wonderful. Chiveche was killer. The buffet was refreshed often and kept in top shape. The food was flavorful but not too spicy. There were name tags showing the Peruvian names of each dish. an English version would have been interesting and helpful to diners. The "La Leche de Tigre" was a unique and fun addition for those of us looking for a massive flavor hit. We are definitely planning a return trip to try it on a "normal" evening so we can sample other dishes. The staff was pleasant and attentive."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I was really anxious to try their buffet brunch because I am not familiar with Peruvian food. This was an opportunity to try so many delicious, and beautifully prepared items! I was glad they had the dishes labeled, but I still wasn't sure what the dishes were. In fact even when I inquired I was not clear exactly what the dish was, only what the main ingredient was. But it really didn't matter. The spices and sauces were absolutely perfection. So many different dishes to try! The wait staff was attentive and friendly, always checking to see how we were doing. The special, and free, Mother's Day sangria was delightful! I only wish they had brunch more times per year! "

  • "Our first time trying Peruvian cuisine was outstanding! Wait staff and management were all friendly and helpful, given our lack of knowledge of Peruvian food and drink. Some exciting new tastes will bring us back again."

  • "We did the Chicharrón de Cerdo appetizer and it was lovely. The sweet potatoes in this appetizer were perfect. I think I may do the main course version of this in the future. I had the lamb as my main course and it was tasty. A friend had the Tacu Tacu de Mariscos and said it was great."

  • "Clean, nice decor, and friendly staff. But sorry to say, we were underwhelmed by the lack of flavor. Ordered two dishes, and neither had much flavor. No, NOT heat, just flavor. The Loma Saltido, despite what others have written, was NOT Filet. Maybe Top Sirloin? Dish comes with plain rice, onions and tomato slices. Beef was cooked well. Portion size was decent, but overpriced for a simple dish using this cut of beef IMO. We also had a seafood/rice dish (sorry, forgot the name). Very small portion of seafood. By actual count: 2 clams, 4 medium shrimp (31-35's?), and about 5 or 6 small ringlets of squid. Rice was tasty, but was an overly large portion used as a plate filler. Again, overpriced for a mostly rice dish IMO."

  • "I was pleasantly surprised to find out that we had a Peruvian restaurant in Roseville. I read great reviews so we decided to try it out. We were greeted warmly by the host and we were seated promptly. I ordered the Lomo Saltado while my husband ordered the Seco con Frijoles. Both dishes were excellent! The beef on the Lomo Saltado was just right and the fries were the right amount of crisp. I also ordered the passion fruit pisco sour which was really good. We had an overall great experience and we will definitely come back. Highly recommended!"

  • "We had read good things about this restaurant and wanted to try it. The visit was very enjoyable, with good and different food. We had no idea what Peruvian food consisted of, so they educated us and fed us. And there was live music the evening we were there, a guitarist by the name of Hugo. A fine time was had by all with good food, wine, and music."

  • "It's too bad that La Huaca is not in my neighborhood or my wife and I would eat there frequently. But it is an hour away although that doesn't stop us from going occasionally. The last time was with friends and all six of us had a marvelous dining experience. From the initial welcome to the final goodbyes, we had a great time. The Octupus appetizer was in a subtle and rich sauce, the causas as good as always, all the entrees were enjoyed by all and my duck was excellent. Shared appetizers, shared entrees, shared desserts, six of us had a marvelous time eating and drinking very nice Peruvian wine, reds and whites. We will be back just not as often as we would like but if you live in their neighborhood, don't miss La Huaca"

  • "First time visiting this restaurant and it was overall a great experience. We were celebrating my Mother's 77th birthday and the hostess put a lovely centerpiece on the table complete with confetti and a balloon; nice touch. Food was wonderful, hot deliciously seasoned and huge portions. Service was attentive until the end of the meal when they seemed to forget we were there. To be honest though the disappointing part of the experience was being seated next to a family with 4 rowdy, screaming children. There were plenty of empty tables when we arrived and we were a group of older adults. It made conversation a little difficult but I guess that is the fault of parents who ignored the children's behavior. Will definitely go again though."

  • "I had heard many good things about this place but I was not impressed. Service very slow and inconsistent, had to keep asking for things. Food was ok, good size portions but did not live up to the impressive menu descriptions. My fish dish tasted much like Velveeta. Pulpo (octopus) appetizer also just ok. I was hoping for a better experience!"

  • "Loved the food but our server spent more time chatting with other staff in one corner of the room than providing us with service such as plates for our appetizers."
