    I would recommend the 31 seat Llama as an intimate introduction to Peruvian cooking touches with the main attractions being the meat dishes, which are excellent. Best options for appetizers are probably the Ceviches - there are several flavors. The crema volteada is not to be missed for desert. Prices are "muy upscale" but service is excellent.

    The restaurant is small and only a handful of tables. The ambiance and the way the service was run reminded me of dining in Spain. The service excellent, the food amazing! No complaints and only a very excellent experience

    Great experience. Will come again. Make sure to have a reservation (no walk ins!), which is fine. It is only 10 tables so understand you have to book in advance (which we did). Food was amazing, 'mimosas' were very unique. Listen to servers on wine pairings, and save room for desert!

    We’ve been wanting to try this place since moving to Saint Augustine. I heard lots of good things and that it was a dining experience. However, I was disappointed not in the quality of the food but the value. It was very expensive compared to other restaurants in the area. I would expect a little bit more from an $18 appetizer. It gave small plates a new meaning i.e. it was really small! Service was very good. Atmosphere was also very pleasant. It just wasn’t as good as I heard it would be. My wife had the rack of lamb which was very good. I had the paiche- Amazon white fish which was plated nicely but had no flavor. It was ok but definitely not 5 star. Just sayin.

The service was impeccable and the atmosphere is casual and charming. We will be returning for sure as we are local. We highly recommend this restaurant it is a foodie's dream!

    WOW!!! I was so pleasantly surprised by Llama. The food was not only beyond delicious, but the presentation was like something i'm only used to seeing in Miami. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Saint Augustine. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. My cuisine favorites were the Flower Bomb cocktail (which the server sprayed a rose essence "perfume" on it, such a show), for appetizers- the antichuchos, pulpo, ceviche; the mar y tierra and cordero cosqueno as entrees. The dessert presentations were also out of this world; we loved the algarrobina custard, the alfajorres affogato and the sacred valley. WOW! Make sure the make a reservation a week ahead of time. It is 100% worth the wait! what an experience! Enjoy!

    It was a spectacular birthday dinner and our first visit to St Augustine. . We ordered Ceviche, and octopus appetizers with incredible Lamb Chops and an Amazon fish i never heard of baked in Plantain leaves with a phenomenal mango sauce, plantains and Yucca Frits. All were spectacular with unique flavors. Loved the opening co tails as well as they use Prosecco as a base for some cool drinks with wine by the glass pours that are significant. We had 2 great deserts as well with the Affogato and short bread and the chocolate. Great flavors with great service. Get your reservations in advance as there are just 10 tables but you won’t be disappointed. Well done Llama.

    Authentic Peruvian with a twist. Food was delicious, nice to see special vegetarian menu, service was wonderful, small and intimate place. I had the most delicious fish brought in special from the Amazon!! My husband and friends said their Vegetarian Lomo Saltado was excellent. The ceviche appetizer was just as wonderful, if not better, than the ceviche I had in Peru. The homemade dulce de leche ice cream with alfajores and espresso was outstanding! Wish they had a full liquor license because I was dreaming about a Pisco Sour. However, my friend and I had a Lima Mule that was very good, made with Proseco, ginger beer and fresh lime and mint, served in a cool copper mug (it made up for no Pisco Sour)! Pricey menu but so worth it for a special occasion. Make sure to reserve a table ☺

    While we enjoyed our visit to Llama I think our experience could have been much better. We felt that the appetizer (Ceviche) was a missed opportunity and left us somewhat disappointed. Especially at $17. Maybe it was the size or maybe it was our expectation, regardless which one it wouldn't be something we would pick again. As a main dish we picked Surf and Turf. Much better but for $48 I would like to see more protein. I would even ask for lobster instead of shrimp, even though it was very good. I do want to say that Lisa was awesome. Very nice and helpful. She is what most people should strive for in hospitality industry. Job well done Lisa.
