We were visiting St.Augustine, and looking for restaurants to eat while we were there, found Llama, and it’s wonderful reviews online, and decided to make a reservation. Due to COVID-19 restrictions they have limited seating so, our reservation made 2 days in advance was at 5:15PM, and I couldn’t be more happy that even though it was early we went to eat there. The restaurant is small and quaint, with typical Peruvian decorations, the service is marvelous, the food is DE-LI-CIOUS , and the presentation is absolutely beautiful. I haven’t had a meal like the one I had at Llama, in a long while, and will be thinking about it for a while. I visit El Peru 20 years ago and was delighted with their food well, This restaurant brought good memories and didn’t disappoint. Don’t hesitate to go there if you are in the area.

On vacation in St. Augustine for a few days and researched this spot. It lived up to the hype. Very cozy atmosphere no more than 8-10 tables inside. Staff was very friendly and taking all necessary precautions. Ceviche tradicional appetizer was delicious. I had the mar y tierra and my boyfriend had the paiche. Both were amazing portions and so well made. We will definitely revisit every time we are in town.

Excellent service. fish wrapped in banana leaf and grilled was best cooked fish I have eaten out. The passion fruit dipping sauce was amazing. they have light meals and some that are definitely more filling. we enjoyed ceviche as well and saved room for desserts which were made on premises, including ice cream!

Amazing food – and amazing service. A very quaint restaurant that you have to try when you’re in Saint Augustine. The Ceviches are amazing, as well as the entrées and desserts-extremely unique and intricate presentation but yet amazing flavor and taste. If we’re ever up in Saint Augustine we will definitely be back!

My husband and I enjoyed a truly outstanding dinner at Llama. Peruvian food is so delicious! We had two different kinds of ceviche (acid-"cooked" fish salads) to start and the best surf-and-turf we've ever eaten: perfectly cooked shrimp and fabulous marinated hanger steak (lomo saltado) with roasted onions and tomatoes in a scrumptious sauce over wide ribbon pasta, exactly al dente. Our server was personable, good at explaining the dishes, and completely familiar with the wine list: found the absolutely right wine to accompany my husband's entree. Tables were set far enough apart for social distancing, and we felt quite safe and very happy!

First tine and was delicious! Appetizer was Cevicke and best I have ever had. Wife ordered a Mimosa with mango and was delicious. The couscous risotto was epic. The grilled heart of palm on the leaf wrapped fish entree couple with the little chili peppers were mind blowing flavors. The passion fruit dipping sauce was incredible! We will back to try the tasting menu. Highly recommend this spot!

Everything about this restaurant is remarkable. We had a 5:30 reservation. We arrived early and they graciously seated us. Very friendly staff. Engaging. Able to answer all of our questions and make suggestions. Food was so flavorful. Beautifully presented. Incredible palate cleansing drink in between appetizers and dinner made with cactus, cilantro and lime. Food was cooked to perfection. We had never eaten Peruvian food before. We are now fans. We will be back!! Highly recommend!!

The Llama Restaurant is a hidden gem in St Augustine. It’s one the the top 5 restaurants on my list if not the number 1. If you like Ceviche they have 4 types of apps and a main dish. My favorite dish is the surf and turf entree which I split with my wife. We dine here once a week.

Great food, excellent service. We loved the octopus carpaccio, mushroom ceviche, salmon ceviche the 3 flavor causa and the anticuchos. And the desserts are out of this world and I am not a dessert person. The one with cocoa and eucaliptus and the 3 leches were AMAZING. I went there to celebrate my birthday and they gave me a very special treatment

After almost a year of talking about eating at the Llama I finally remembered to think ahead and obtain a reservation to eat there for my husband’s birthday. We were in love with the restaurant after our first tase of the ceviche lima. It was so fresh and the citrus cooking liquid was so delicious we are still thinking about it days later. Our entrees were equally divine. We both agreed that this was by far one of the best culinary experiences we have had in St. Augustine. All we want to do now is return with friends and family because everyone should experience the taste of the Llama!

Visited Llama for the first time with a couple of friends and I must say it was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I have had in quite some time. The ambiance of the restaurant was perfect for dinner with friends or for that special occasion. The service was incredible and the food was to die for. The chef is a true culinary artist. I am looking forward to my next visit.

Llama is my favorite restaurant in town! The ambience, food, and wait staff are flawless every time we dine. It's a little pricy for the portion size, but worth it because the food is that delicious. If you go, ceviche is a must! They usually have 3-4 varieties, so there are plenty of options. The ceviche classico is my favorite. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! I've tried nearly everything on the menu and there isn't one thing I wouldn't reorder.
