Delicious and super cute ambiance. We had the Tostones Acevichados. - such a great appitizer. The mains we had were the Pescado a lo macho (sauce was so good!), and Arroz con Mariscos. The portions were huge. Kevin and Fabiola were amazing serving us. Definitely coming back the next time we are in town!


We drive in from Jacksonville tonight and rushed to make it in time to try this place. I found it and followed it on Facebook a while ago, but tonight’s dinner set the bar high. We were immediately seated. Yosel and Sebas were quite attentive and polite. They were very upbeat and welcomed all questions about Peruvian cuisine from the other guests. We spoke Spanish but I heard everyone talk to other tables in English. The place was clean and the bathrooms were also clean. We ordered the yuca frita with Huancaina sauce as an appetizer. My dad ordered the pea ado a lo macho, my mom the aji de gallina, and I ordered the lomo saltado. It was all very good. I was especially impressed with how the lomo was seasoned perfectly and tasted exactly like I remembered eating as a kid. It was all delicious, but the aji de gallina was not creamy like we were used to, but it was very tasty. We finished the meal with alfajores (3 nice sized ones per order) and then we ordered the picarones with lucuma ice cream. The picarones were fresh and made me miss getting them with my grandfather when I was a kid. I was thrilled with everything. I look forward to coming here again and my parents were happy with everything too. I highly recommend this place.


Last night, I ate the absolute best seafood (Chupe De Mariscos) I’ve ever had in my life from a small, unassuming Peruvian restaurant. I’ve eaten siete mares (7 Seas) all over the country. The best until last night had been in Kansas City, KS. I asked them to send out the head chef, a friendly, non-English speaking woman. The host, Wilmer, was fantastic and translated for me. I explained that I’m a chef, instructor/proctor of ServSafe, and a foodie, and her food was simply amazing. It was delicate, balanced, and the best way I can describe it was beautiful. It’s magnificent. As a return of the compliment, they gifted me a traditional dessert of ice cream and fried potato donuts. It was also delicious. I can’t speak highly enough.


Nice Restaurant, excellent Server Sebastian and delicious food. Full of savors and it was beyond my expectations. My selected plate: Pescado a Lo Macho


We’ve been trying out the entire menu, always an excellent surprise , food and service, for seafood.

Enjoying a wonderful Saturday out and about, early voting, Oddities and Curiosities Expo, and then based on a co-worker recommendation, we stopped here for some Peruvian grub.The recommendation we got was for the Ceviche's; but when I saw the Seco Cabrito on the menu, I had to have it. Who can pass up lamb?This place is simple awesome. Friendly staff, excellent food, and excellent prices for the portions.I started with a Tamal con Pollo that had a olive and egg inside. Delicious!My Seco Cabrito was almost fall off the bone tender, the way I like it, with just a tiny hint of pull and a hint of that lamb game flavor.She had the Palomilla Streak and was one of the best she has ever had.There is no doubt that we will be back many times. There are so many options on the menu, it will take a while to try them all.Be mindful that this is in an extremely busy Hispanic oriented shopping center and the Saturday traffic was...well difficult.Once parked and inside the restaurant, all that clutter fades away into plates of deliciousness.


Fabiola was our waitress. She was very attentive and gracious in explaining dishes. The food is simple, fresh and delicious. If you want fancy and overpriced, this is not the place for you. Located in busy strip mall.


Happy Fish has become one of my family favorite dining places. The food is amazing and the service, excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a good meal, at a reasonable price and pleasant service.

First lets start from the salchipapa. I have never had peruvian salchicha papa with cheese than please explain these salchichas. Absolutely nasty salchichas. I also ordered a lomo saltado also disappointed. Came to this place because had over 4 stars reviews but I give it a 1. Was very disappointed. I love peruvian food however this place was not good at all.


We stopped in based on great reviews when visiting from Michigan. This is exactly the kind of food we love to find when traveling -- creative, a taste of a different culture, and delicious! Great service from Sebas, and the restaurant was very clean as well. We very much enjoyed the Yuca a la Huancana, Chaufa Especial con Mariscos, Carne y Pollo, and Picarones. But our favorite was the Olluco de Pollo -- wish I could eat this frequently!


Everything was very good. The portions could be a bit larger. Service was good, but some didn't speak English and didn't understand my husband Spanish, lol. We were there at 12PM. Is inside a shopping center.


Favorite place when visiting Tampa, good food, good service, mixed ceviche is always on point and the desert ?


We enjoyed a lovely dinner! Lorena, our server, made excellent recommendations! There are so many options yet to try and we look forward to returning!


Lorena S. was fantastic!! The food was great and so was the ambience. I'm Peruvian and loved the papa rellena and the picarones.


Amazing place, you can make a reservation to book a private room for birthday parties. Great food and service. Employees are really nice and make sure you like your meal. 10/10
