Rica comida, linda ubicación, buena atención y rico ambiente.
AWESOME FOOD WITH NICE ENVIRONMENT.
I really like this little nook, located just a short walk from the main Dupont Circle area. I will say its pretty pricey (entrees and appetizers alike start at $20+). The lamb was overly salty, but overall the food was fresh and flavourful. My favourite thing about this place is the ambiance. A friend and I sat out on the patio and they have done a great job decorating the whole place.
Ok. 1. Great waiter 2. Gourmet enough portions 3. Fresh delicious food. 4. Pisco sour deserves a A+ 5. Quiet place great for a nice conversation. 6. Cebiche got a decent level of spice. DEFINITELY going to come back. Peruvian here so I have a bit of authority about it 😜
Short rib appetizer, fish with shrimp calamari and mussels, and beef in cilantro sauce were all amazing. Waitress was great Two tips. Stick to the traditional Pisco Sour and avoid the tiramisu. The latter being bad and our host gladly replacing it with the cookies and charging us for neither. A must visit!
We were roaming at the neighborhood when stumbled upon Nazca mochica's happy hour drinks sign (piscos for $6 hooraay). The place looked cool, a little hidden corner in the middle of a beautiful residential (as it looked) area, split in an upper layer with great interior and a cute little balcony and a modern bar with a yard downstairs. Weather was pleasant so we opted for putside seating. Personnel was super polite and attentive, the owner (well at least the guy who seemed to literally running up and down the floors to help everyone including customers and personnel) was very helpful and accommodating. The menu looked very authentic, with some inspiring twists, though quite expensive at first glance (which raises the expectation of course). We tried ceviche and some starters and salads. The food overall is quite good, but merely exceptional for the price tag. The starters, fritters and quinoa salad were amazing, however I was not 100% satisfied with their signature ceviche with mixed fish and seafood. The taste was very authentic and the marinade surprisingly good (compared to other similar restaurants I've tried around the world and in PerÃº) but I think it lacked a bit of imagination and creativity. The presentation was a bit poor, provided the high expectations, looked like someone was in a rush in the kitchen. Sweet potato tossed as a big brick into the bowl and the cilantro deco passed away hours ago. Pisco sours were great. Taste to price 4/5, imagination 3/5, presentation 3/5. overall a 4 😉
Everything was fantastic, the sours, the Cebiches, the pescado, the dessert. All great.
We visited this restaurant on a recommendation from a friend. It was impressive! From the relaxed atmosphere to the cuisine, it did not disappoint! The ceviche was outstanding as was the grilled octopus. We will certainly visit again!
Great food! There was a little waiting time.
Great food and good times!
We. went during the week with a big group and were worried we wouldn't make our reservation. However, everyone at the restaurant was very accommodating and our waitress was amazing! The food was great and a lot of things u donâ€™t get everyday.
Nice food, friendly staff, bit overpriced. Because the service was so quick and so was the check, we didn't have time to enjoy the nice atmosphere of the restaurant. Pity because the restaurant is lovely.
Very nice dinner with my wife and felt authentic Peruvian as compared to meals I have had in Peru. Started with the cebiche which was very good. We split it and you definitely want to get the full-size. Then enjoyed more seafood. Overall both good food and service.
Super expensive food. Super delicious food. Super dark place :(
The pisco sours are amazing, and the food is even better!
Having recently returned from a trip to South America, we were in DC and hungering for some real Peruvian food. We were delighted to find this restaurant that exceeded our expectations. The ceviche was delicious and so evocative of the flavors we had loved. The "full" serving is truly only big enough for 2 people to share as an appetizer. So, if you love ceviche, get one for yourself to enjoy! The grilled octopus, braised lamb, and fish stew were all hits at our table too. Good selection of beer, cocktails and wines. The service was very friendly and the ambiance lively. We will definitely be back here.
