This place was absolutely amazing. Don’t know expect a cheap dinner, but it will be well worth it. We did 2 appetizers, 3 entrees, and 2 desserts and we were not disappointed in a thing. If you can swing reservations be sure to visit.

Wonderful first experience dining at Llama! The servers were friendly and helpful with advice on what to order since it was our first time. Even the wine recommendation was spot on and the wines by the bottle were mostly very reasonable.
Every course was tasty and beautifully prepared!

The food and service was excellent !! There are no words to describe the fabulous desserts. They were delicious works of art created by a chef that loves what they do. The only downside to this establishment is the restrooms are outside and around the building. After all, it is Florida and it does rain frequently. I will most definitely return and encourage others to stop by.

Wow, what amazing food! I've had Peruvian food a few places (sadly, not Peru) and this one is by far the best. The ceviche is amazing. Seafood stew was wonderful and quite filling. Could not finish the dessert and I'm still sad about that. Small restaurant to reservations in advance are a must.

We really enjoyed the food. We have been several times and the food and service are always great. They are not as flexible or accommodating as I would like. We knew the table of people next to us but they would not allow up to combine the two tables together. We also asked if we could swap rice for veggies and was told no. So, we asked if they could just leave off the rice and they said no. Lot's of no's! But if you are willing to play by their rules, you'll enjoy the food.

Our cocktails were amazing . The fish grilled in a plantain leaf was flavorful and was accompanied by a tasty cilantro avocado dipping sauce. The seafood stew was hearty with some kick to it. Came with a very spicy salsa.
The ceviche was really good .

We had a good time and enjoyed our meal. The reason I didn’t give excellent ratings for everything is because I asked for the rest of my meal to take with me and they gave me someone else’s meal to take home. I didn’t expect that given the prices, the excellent food and their attention to detail, and didn’t realize it until I got home.

What an excellent experience! The food was delicious and new to me and my partner. Peruvian fish? Arapaima was outstanding and the presentation was super. Bob had beef and it was fall off the bone tender and sooo tasty. All the accoutrements enhanced the sense that we had just arrived in Peru. The servers were friendly and helpful, explained easily and offered ideas. The restaurant is small and we felt we were in a very special place to enjoy the fine food. Would go back in a heartbeat. We’re only sorry that we were visiting but the rest of the guests that night were local people...a real testimony to the cuisine. Don’t miss this one!

Unique dining experience, at least for St. Augustine. Food was well prepared and and attractively presented. Menu is somewhat limited. Would like to see them offer nightly specials for more variety. Service excellent. Wine selection adequate. Nice stemware. Desserts are outstanding. Satisfying experience, if a little spendy.

One of our best dining eperiences ever! Tired of our local tourist town meals, we decided to splurge and we were not disappointed--every element was 100%. This is a skilled chef and a small staff that really care. We understand that they gave up lunches because they did not have the time to properly prepare for dinner and that dedication shows. I am normally a fast eater but had to slowly savor every complex little morsel. My only disappointment was that the did not server bread to wipe up the last of the sauces. We are not foodies as such but we have eaten at more than a few very respected restaurants and this little store front rates with the very best. The menu is limited and expensive but in return the chef concentrates on each plate and the diner wins. A special tip: don't ignore some mundane sounding items namely the superb chicha "fruit juice" or "cookies" for dessert.

Very small with only nine tables so reservations are a must. Fun & unique menu. If you want to do the 6 or 13 course dinner with wine pairing though, you have to let them know a few days ahead. Food was delicious and service was great. Highly recommend.

Checked out Llama for the first time with friends. We all drove from Jacksonville and boy, was it worth it! The place is small, quaint and beautiful. The servers and server assistant were kind and knowledgeable. Anna was our main server, always delightful and attentive. The dishes were more like flavorful art pieces, inspiring us to bolt to Peru and explore asap! Their chicha morada is to die for and please, do yourself a favor and save room for dessert - I’m still drooling over the amazing custard. Congrats to the chef and team for this beautiful Saint Augustine gem. We left impressed and will be back soon! Thank you!
