Absolutely spectacular. Everything was amazing. Fresh, savory, tasteful, beautiful presentations, excellent service. Best Peruvian food I have ever had.
Wonderful service! I went alone and the waiter was very attentive and sweet and kept a very nice conversation with me. The food was good even though it wasn’t in the large amounts I’m use to when you go to a Peruvian restaurant, (this was a higher chic one so it is expected). Will def go back next time I’m in town.
Nazca Mochica is a fine Peruvian restaurant in the Dupont Circle area. Excellent cebiches and the potato dishes for which Peru is well known. Try the arroz con mariscos (rice with shell fish), the grilled octopus, or the braised lamb leg. Very attractive restaurant, and the tables upstairs are good for quiet conversation.
Nazca Mohica is a great restaurant. The restaurant seems spacious, with thin drapes separating the room into several sections. Our waiter offered suggestions --his favorites-- and he was spot on. Cerbiche Mixto had tender fish and a spicy but not hot sauce. The pescado a lo macho was hake seared and served in a white wine sauce. It was tender and not overcooked. Lomo saltado was beef tenderloin in a flavorful sauce. Both entrees were cooked perfectly and very good. The lucuma tiramisu for dessert was light and full of flavor. It was served with a small scoop of ice cream, topped with cilantro. It worked. We had a wonderful evening. I look forward to going back.
Not your traditional Peruvian food; this is Peruvian cuisine. The dishes are elevated and worth the price. The portions are not huge, but are filling. Great ambiance and service.
Food is good. The lomo needs more meat for the price.
Absolutely amazing! The drinks, the food, the dessert, the atmosphere- nothing disappointing in any way. Fantastic!
Without a doubt one of the best Peruvian restaurants I’ve ever visited. The food was exquisite and the service was topnotch. I recommend this restaurant 100%
This is some of the tastiest Peruvian food I have had in the United States. I lived in Lima, Peru for eight years and fell in love with Peruvian cuisine. Since returning to the U.S., I'm almost always somewhat disappointed when I visit a Peruvian restaurant here. That was certainly not the case with our visit to Nazca Mochica. Everything we tried took us back to our time in Lima. The chef does an exceptionally good job of bringing authentic Peruvian cuisine to Washington, DC. The service was excellent and we loved the overall ambience. Will definitely return again when we are back in DC.
Great menu, food was tasty, service was good! Atmosphere was simple and tasteful. There cheese platters sounded delicious but most of the cheeses weren't pasteurized and I'm pregnant so I had to skip out on it but my husband loved the cheeses that he chose!
I lived in South America, so I know what a ceviche tastes like prepared by locals, the one I had in DC was amazing, the service is good, I highly recommend this place, muchas graciassssss
Attentive but unobtrusive service. Food is good and prices are reasonable.
Having eaten at restaurants in Peru, I was surprised by the menu at Nazca Mochica. Of course I didn’t expect guinea pig. And they did have ceviche, but they called it cebiche. My husband and I had dishes we had not encountered in Lima. I had AJI DE CALLINA which was shredded chicken breast, roasted potatoes, olive oil, egg, roasted peanuts, micro herbs in an “Aji de Gallina” sauce. It tasted good, but had the texture of very well mixed tuna salad. It was served on rice. My husband had ANDEAN GNOCCHI which was potato gnocchi, beef tenderloin, “Huancaina” sauce, topped with French onions and fresh cilantro. One of our friends had ceviche, and the other also had the gnocchi. We both enjoyed Pisco sours. And we split a good crème brulée. I might have gotten gelato instead, but there was only on flavor available. The portions were not large, and my husband said he was still hungry after dinner. One thing I loved in the restaurant was the screen with a recorded feed from the main square in Lima.
Excellent food and services this restaurat is a place to enjoy the Peruvian
Good place with small portion of foods, will be nice to share in group
Excelente comida peruana. Preço é americano mesmo!
Modern twist on traditional Peruvian food. Papa la huancaina sauce was mildly disappointing, while the lomo saltado was excellent. Ceviche also good... but small portion. Nice atmosphere...
Very good Peruvian cuisine
Solid Peruvian food and pisco drinks. Happy hour 5-7 is reasonable and they do a brunch on the weekends as well.
