Beautiful restaurant and excellent food. First Peruvian ceviche in Toronto that I have had that tastes very close to being in Lima. The causas were amazing with a bit of a different twist than the traditional causa. Good balance of fusion and traditional flavours. I do wish the servings were a little bigger which makes the dishes on the expensive side but for the food taste, presentation and excellent ingredients used I would still go back again.

I loved every bit of my night at Kay Pacha. Every dish I ordered was scrumptious. It was just a really good night. I'll be telling all of my friends about my enjoyable time there.

Had a reservation but had to wait 1.5hrs for our table, and even once seated no apology and food/waiter still took forever Food was good, but incredibly over priced

We enjoyed our evening. Quiet when we first arrived, but the room soon livened up. Food was delicious, next time would not order any main dishes, will just order shareable plates. The service was excellent!

The Tiradito of Yellow Fin Tuna was to die for. This is quite the dinning experience. Kudos to Chef Elias Salazer.

I made several attempts to change reservation by leaving a message with the restaurant but never received a call back. I believe it is standard courtesy to return calls whether it is to give a positive or negative reply. First impression not so impressed. Food was ok. No incentive for repeat visit.

We were so excited to see that Kay Pacha finally opened. It was worth the wait. Delicious, flavourful and delightful food and drink. The service was impeccable, the atmosphere comfortable yet elegant, a great night out and we look forward to going back again soon.

Excellent experience. My partner and I celebrated a special birthday with parents. The food, service and atmosphere are and were excellent. It's pricey, but we were prepared for that.

My best friend and I went to Kay Pacha for dinner, and we really enjoyed the meal. I have tried the chef's work before in pop-ups he had in the city last year, and as I expected the food was delicious. The service was excellent too. I cannot have dairy, and the kitchen was very attentive and recommended changes to our order (for example we were informed that the octopus we ordered was marinated in milk, and the chef sent us a carne empanada on the house to make up for that - which I felt was very nice). The ceviche was fantastic, tasted exactly like the ones I had in Peru. Scallop tiradito was perfect too. We only ordered seafood options, so I can't comment on their other dishes. Only one item in my opinion was not up to par, and it was a main dish - plato fuerte - the seared scallops with broccolini and pureed squash. While the scallops were perfectly done, the flavour was nothing special and felt like what I would have at other restaurants serving generic cuisine - the squash/whole dish was very very salty. That said, the meal in general was very good, and we intend to go back with our husbands. One note, the menu in the restaurant is different from the one on the website - I recommend the restaurant update their menu online, and also add a bit more seafood options on the menu.

Food and service were excellent. Ceviche fantastic. We had the whole fish. It was a bit tricky to eat but worth the trouble. The only item that was average were the picarones. The taste was there but they were a bit too crunchy for my liking. Very nice ambiance. Perfect for a casual date night. Interesting drink menu.

I took my girlfriend for dinner for her birthday. The waitress was extremely knowledgeable in recommending cocktails and food pairings. The cocktails are phenomenal, I strongly recommend the pisco sours. The food was delicious and beautifully arranged. The staff was extremely friendly and took great care of us.

For someone who is a Peruvian I have to say that first the portions are so tiny for the price. The food was not really a big deal, it was actually not as good as I know it was supposed to taste. It was very spicy taking away the actual flavour. I am not planning in coming back because of the reasons above.

Nice place, good food but a little bit expensive and small portion. We spent 75 CAD per pax, also food a bit slow.

Dinner was fabulous. The service non pretentious nor intrusive, just easy going and spot on for a relaxed experience. The food though is the star, this carnival of flavors and textures is not easily experienced anywhere. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Thank you very much Chef Elias Salazar for providing this experience to us! Will go back many times for sure!

The restaurant is beautiful, atmosphere lively (loved the music and it wasn’t too loud!) and the staff informed and friendly. We felt very welcome and well taken care of. The food was the star tho. It was outstanding! The tamale, ceviche and octopus stew were delicious. I’m already dreaming of my next visit!

I will never go back,even though the food and service was great. The music was so loud that I could not hear the person beside me. I asked the staff to turn it down and was told it was part of the ambiance ! They can have their ambiance and my friends and me will celebrate our birthdays elsewhere :)

First visit. Great waitress ...attentive yett not intrusive. Food: a little disappointing... would have been easier to make suitable choice if there was more description of the items. Waitress was helpful but we needed more than we felt comfortable asking her to repeat.

Appetizers and drinks were great! Dessert also lovely. Service was fine, space is nice. The mains were a disappointment! We had the shrimp linguine and the duck rice dish. Both over salted -I didn’t see what I was paying $$$ for with a few shreds of duck with a massive bed of rice and peas with soy sauce...shrimp linguine was in the same soy sauce and unexciting as well. We barely ate them. Sorry. Wanted to love this place

Wonderful experience for our entire group-everyone thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Ceviches are the best in Canada- so fresh and full of flavour! Atmosphere, decor, service and menu are all perfect. Thanks for having us, we’ll be back soon!!
