I went to panca for the first time last year and i was really impressed, the taste and presentation of every single dish we tried was totally amaizing i will recommend the tiradito trio, the conchitas a la parmesana, the causa, and pretty much every single plate, my wife and 4 years old daugther love the place, verry cozy and great service every time we can we take the 45 min ride to enjoy the good peruvian food that makes me feel back home. It's a must go place , try the tapas, and the maracuya sour. AAAA++++++ to the Chef and Crew.

Took my peruvian friends from Germany and Michigan to a restaurant chain at Time Square. we paid 30 dollars for just a hamburger with french fries and soda or ice tea. Next day went to Panca!!!! we felt like being at home. Food, price and service extraordinary, we ate a lot. we even have dessert!!!! we had appetizer: choritos a la chalaca!! and Anticucho (grilled marinated cows heart ), main dish : lomo saltado, chupe de camarones (shrimp soup) and arroz con pollo (rice and chicken cooked with cilantro), peruvian soda Inca Kola and Peruvian drink Chicha Morada made of purple corn. cocktails :Pisco sour and algarrobina: delicious! dessert: sample of Alfajor, Tres leches and Lucuma puddin! good music and the best of all ....we paid 40.00 each!!! compare this with the 30.00 we paid the night before! Very good portions, in fact, the appetizer would have been enough . Guys, thanks for giving me the chance of taking my friends to such a great peruvian restaurant! it was fantastic!!! we had a great time! Peruvian food is one of the greatest of the entire world! Go to Panca!!!! You wont be dissapointed!

Very good, I love the ceviche taste so taste and fresh. ANd the prices are not really expensive as other with the same food quality. For example in Miami the have a restaurant like this and the ceviche cost $40.00. This price was one year ago. Excelent. Keep going peruviana

that people's perceptions and opinions about any restaurant very greatly. Some will love a particular place and some will hate it, depending of course on their own individual experience. This certainly seems to be the case with "Panca".....it is so hard sometimes to make up your mine because of these different opinions, the only thing I will say to those thinking about visiting "Panca" (or any other restaurant for that matter) is, always listen to the majority of good reviews (versus the minority of bad ones) and most of the time you will be correct, I know I will. Bon Appetite!!

Loved it! Recommended by Peruvian friends. As good as eating in Lima. Casual place, nothing fancy... very honest, down to earth atmosphere. Very nice place and good service.

We ordered five or six plates of tapas and loved them all. Remarkably fresh ingredients and delicious sauces. The octopus melted in my mouth (did I just type that?). The warm, smiling staff made the evening a genuine pleasure.

Dishes full of flavor!

Been there numerous times and here's what I love: ceviche/tiradito (fresh, addictive flavors and healthy!), anticucho (do not read the ingredients, just try it!), lomo saltado (Peruvian twist on a Chinese stir fry), pollo a la brasa (infused with lot of spices ... only time I don't remove the skin...). Desserts are good, on the sweet sweet side though. The Pisco cocktails are a must try! And here're my critics: most dishes come only with rice/fries (would love to have some "greens"), service has room for improvement (in some occasions, appetizers and entrees arrived all at the same time). Peruvian cuisine is well worth the detour!
