This restaurant is quite original. It serves hot and cold tapas, beer, wine, cocktails, and specialty drinks from Peru. You may think tapas are too light for dinner but you would be wrong. The meat skewers are generous and make a lovely meal paired with hot or cold side dishes. There are several vegetarian options. As an aperitive, try Chica Morada, which the menu describes as ‘purple corn juice’. It tastes a little bit like Virgin sangria or flat coke. I hate coke but I enjoyed the drink, which was refreshing and smooth.
The decor of the restaurant is simple and warm: rattan tables and chairs, white walls adorned with discreet Peruvian vases, and a big fresco. There are only 8 tables, so a group could easily fill the restaurant. The music may not be to everyone’s taste but gives an authentic touch – you may hear a mix of Latino hits and more traditional folk songs. The warm atmosphere and easy-to-share dishes mean this is a great place for couples and friends. Do check their website before going as the menu changes every month.
