Piura is a Peruvian restaurant in Pereira. I consider it one of my favorite restaurants in the city. The restaurant has excellent food, friendly and attentive service, and a nice atmosphere. It often fills up on evenings on the weekends and is a popular spot for private parties.
The starters are excellent, especially ceviche, and sometimes we make an entire meal out of them. They have a few versions of it, including their own twist, Ceviche Piura, with strips of mango added in. The Causa Limeña and wontons are also worth trying.
Dinner choices are plenty, from traditional Peruvian favorites like Lomo Saltado and Ají de Gallina, to steaks, pasta dishes, and seafood – all with a Peruvian twist.
The bar has good mixed drinks, there is a nice wine selection, and the limonada de coco (coconut lemonade) is one of the best I’ve ever had.
If you’re in Pereira and looking for something other than traditional Colombian food, Piura is a great choice.
