I was a little skeptical before coming it into this restaurant and once I did it was only amazing. The place is so nice inside, it was very romantic for our date and the service was good. The food was great as well.

Awesome little hidden jewel on coral way, waiter was super charming and food was delicious. Parking lot is in the back but only way to access it requires you to go through the road between Big lots and it’s auxiliary parking lot (it’s a road that loops to the back of big lots - so it doesn’t connect with the next street so no way of getting there if you pass the restaurant). Best way is to go southbound on 27th Avenue towards 24th street and turn into big lots. Once in that road, farolito is on your left (after four houses down).We started with some nice warm dinner rolls (which most restaurants have cold hard rolls). Then we had a Peruvian pork tamal which uses the same cornmeal as my favorite Nicaraguan Nacatamales but had lean pork meat (nacatamales keeps the pork fat for smoother consistency and added flavor). And you MUST try eating it with its tangy onions which really makes the whole tamal so flavorful and yummy.Next was the main course, my brother had the lomo saltado with white rice which he enjoyed though he wanted more rice (which we all did want but realized it was just fine since we were on a diet and wanted dessert). I had the cilantro fish which was swimming in a green broth (a bit overwhelming). And my sister had the cilantro fish with a glass of white wine.For dessert we had delicious home made alfajores which are shortbread cookies filled with dulce de leche (cooked condensed milk that taste like caramel). We all agreed it was super yummy although the short bread can be a bit dry so do keep water nearby. It was one of the best alfaflor/ alfajores i have ever eaten and it wasn’t too sweet so you can eat more! And they have Kolita inglesa which is the Peruvian version of the red cola served in many Central American countries. It not too sweet which is great for diabetics like me. My favorite is Costa Rican red Fanta ( the U.S. strawberry version taste nothing like a good red cola). Nicaragua has Milca soda which you can buy in most supermarkets in Miami (in case you want to try a red soda).Overall the food was very nice, ambient was lovely with walls covered with wine bottles. Convenient back parking lot and spacious handicap accessible single stall bathroom.When in the back parking lot, just walk through the door which goes through the restaurant kitchen and straight through the dining room. The bathroom is marked with a painted lady which has a small storage area before you reach a second door to actual stall.We are definitely coming back to try other things on the menu, it has been a very pleasant dining experience in this cozy Peruvian restaurant. Prices average to $30 per person which is quite reasonable for the quality of food.Sorry for the half eaten Alfaflor in the picture since it was so delicious that very little was left when I realized I forgot to take a photo.

Excellent Peruvian food and best tiraditos in town. But the dish that makes me go back time after time is the Seco de Chivo. Outstanding! Great selection of wines too. For dessert their home made alfajores are so good!
