The resturant at the Casa Andina hotel has much improved under the new management. Having dined in this resturant numerous times in the past 6 years this trip was a wonderful experience.

Friendly staff, good food
It's mostly a local food restaurant, so if you're looking forward to getting a taste of Peruvian cuisine this is definitely a good place to do so...If you want something a little spicy try the " tacu tacu " which is basically "arroz Moro" (Cuban) but spicy as I said, but not to much anyway.Everything I've tried from the menu it's been good so far, also the prices are ok, so basically you get what you pay for!

Ate there on a holiday (limited menu) but still good. Pricey but nice service, good food, the salmon was super, they ran out of the filet mignon but substitute OK. Enjoyed the patio.
6. Tao Piura

Reviewed By CitizenB - The Midwest
I was introduced to the chef here a few weeks ago who immediately asked me what I would like to have for my meal. I did what one does in the presence of a great chef, I let the chef decide what he preferred to fix for me. It turned out to be a good decision and provided a memory of an exceptional meal that will linger with me for the rest of my life. This is a great restaurant with a most talented chef. Thanks again Tao!No hay mejor expresión ;)

Comfortable Bar in downtown Piura
I came to this bar often while I stayed in Piura over New Years and my visit to Piura. Very professional bartenders will make almost any drink you request. I had the bar food twice and it was very tasty and reasonable. A pleasant place to spend the evenings in Piura

Not so popular
I went on a Friday evening and the restaurant was empty for half my meal until one other table arrived, only to order off the separate Italian food menu. Maybe lunch is the time to be there? The green tamale was rather dry (I recommend trying them in nearby Catacaos instead) and so was the chavelo. The flavor of the chavelo was good and the portions pretty big and filling. Good location just south of the plaza de armas. Algarobbo (local tree) pisco cocktail was interesting but not cheap.

Very good ceviche and Ronda criolla but we waited a lot for the first ceviche (more than 45min) We were starving!! The restaurant is expensive.But they make good food, nice place to try some specialities in a restaurant which is away from the center of the city (10min taxi) so it is a nice place =) And they have a good staff.Will come back again.

I ordered ceviche (rawa fish salad) and pescado a la chorrillana (fried fish in onion and tomato source). Th fish is very fresh. I saw neighbor tables requesting for fish and the waiters brought fresh fish (killed, unfrozen) to show before it was cooked. I went there at the hotel and taxi driver's recommendation. They said that the fish is purchased daily from the nearby fishing village.
