I was really looking forward to a great experience, sadly that did not occur:

Menu was set, was unaware when I booked and this was disappointing

No wine by the glass, only option was a 5 glass pairing or full bottle of wine

Rude hostess, acted very much like it was inconvenient to provide any level of service. As an example, at the end of the meal I asked if she could call a cab, she responded(after a very pregnant pause) that she supposed she could but after the bill was paid, very odd and offensive comment

Tension and bickering between the chef and hostess

2 of the 5 courses were very disappointing, the salmon and dessert. Salmon was just okay, panko was like mush. Dessert had an off putting texture and taste

We got to the restaurant only to be told there had been a power outage till 4pm so some of the items were not available. I told the waitress we should have been called (that is why we leave a phone number) as it was my birthday and I should have been given the option to change reservation. The chef came out and told us he would try to do something as we don't eat shellfish so the only appetizer available was the ceviche which was very tasty but more chopped coriander would have made it outstanding. The chef didnt offer anything else and didn't come back to explain. The main course - filet mignon, which was tough but wonderful flavor, came with home cut fries (delicious) but I found the quantity of potatoes to meat was a bit overwhelming . The sauce was wonderful. The other main course we had was beef cheeks which were very tender but again a small portion for the money. The quinoa was delicious. As I love ceviche I would return but because the mains were expensive it would have to be for a special occasion.

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.

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.
